Wow, nice cars! You and arun seem to be having a blast there! Bengalooru-ku nange baaro-fying soooon!!!

The MDU Dodge is from Madurai. And the floor-shift and condition of the interior all scream 'Dieselised'! If it were picke up from there recently, its not surprising considering that in smaller cities it would've been all the more common. I hope he has the original engine though.

The Fire Brigade of Karnataka has a Dennis (1928, I think). Is still very original with its petrol engine.

Here is a photograph that I'd taken a month or so ago. This was at the Auto Show in Bangalore.

All those cars are owned by Advaith Hyundai, a Hyundai dealer in Bangalore.

Wasif,

Unfortunately I could only manage this solitary picture. My phone's battery was pretty low and couldn't snap more. There weren't too many classic and vintage cars apart from these. There were about 8 Beetles though (Bangalore Beetle Club)

The front tyres on that Morris seem to be bike tyres mounted on to car wheels.
