Not in Pune, though the car has travelled around a fair bit.

The photos were taken by the owner for me many years back - and yes, they show a lovely setting.

Very neat car. Some polishing will bring it back to its original glory. Is this a 1960 model?

Spot on, Sagar !! It's the FCCCI sticker, which my Swift wears proudly on her ORVMs and rear windscreen !
After all, Suzuki and Fiat do have strategic alliances.

Yes I can

Both these cars are owned by Mr. Jayram

The 1930's Desoto has been a Bangalore car. Originally owned by Evershine Watch Co. has changed many hands since. Been with the current owner for some time

The 1937 Ford was originally owned by Gordon Woodroffe (Makers of Gripe Water) in Chennai. Was brought to Bangalore by Sripathy on behalf of Mr. Papanna in the late 1980's, then sold on the another KVCCC Member before going to the current owner.

The same person also owned a Rover originally brought from Kolkatta and now sold on to Goa.

Cars were all restored in Bangalore, though I am not sure where it was done.

Cheers

KPS
