these cars have a charm of there own
i feel american cars are impressive only because of the monstrous looks otherwise the cars unlike euroean car for which it is opposite

even car like the mustang camaaro dont look that charming in small compact form
i guess thats the reason they have launched thair latest models in monstrous formss unlike the 1990's

The Maharaja of Gondal also now own the Dodge Viper belonging to Rajeev Shah. One sad story I have heard, though not able to conform it is that he has sold his old Corvette, think it was a 55-56. Now if true, why would he do something like that?

The Gondals also have a red 300SL roadster bought new in the lates 50s, plus a couple of Jag XK 150s, besides the usual Maharaja barrage of Caddys, Rollers, and even a Delahaye.

Thats terrible. Is this the car? It too bears a Gujarat number. This picture was shot in Delhi in 2005, and has been doing the rally rounds for a few years.

Yes sir, sadly.... but thats the very car!! Can you confirm this Vishal? Although my sources are very right but cant believe that he would sell this beaut.
If im not mistaken was this Yellow Corvette the same Silver one belonging to an industrialist's family also into ex-manufacturing cars?
