Good on ya -GS- !!! That looks like it.
So it is a late 40s MG TC. She was a beauty to behold. Whose collection does she belong to?

Naw, the doc has one, and VJM has one too. Opposite Kanteerava would be the Mallya car.

This very complete Dodge/Plymouth wagon has recently come to a local garage for work. The Army in Pune has still retained 1 very similar car, after having sold another one a few years ago.

Karl, didnt a particular "collector" in Pune (who also had the powder blue/white mk3 Herald & a Hillman) have a similar model? He'd painted it in the colours of an American police car...?

Yup, thats the one he bought from the Army auction. It is now in a very sorry state.

Spotted a friends latest addition yesterday, a 47 (?) Oldsmobile. The pale white appears to be original paint, the maroon is a later overcoat.

Yessir, I was driving it when we crossed the Olds and stopped to have a look. The 116 now belongs to a friend.

That's a Mercedes 300 sedan. Wouldn't know the exact variant. These are very impressive machines, very stylish and imposing. The one in the picture looks to be in great shape and an original

Wow, thats a mid 50s Merc 300S Addenauer (?). Top of the line in its time. Probably worth a fortune today.
