Petrol engine. If you meant the number of cylinders, six. And today the car is red. Now you know which car this was.

Lovely pics. How clever, not only watermarked KD CUSTOMS, but also narrowed.
The first car is a Mercedes 500 replica built on a Jeep chassis by...........
Rover bears a yellow plate RW 3H, that must be a Ham radio licence plate. Early rallies always had ham radio operators keeping the communications alive, car owner and enthusiast Ankleshwaria was one such enthusiast. Now with mobiles these Hamradios seem to have been wiped off.
That 20HP Rolls must be the Telco car, now Tata Motors?
Standard Avon is Cartier material, wot say?
I am not sure if all pictures are of the same event, as there is a Shyamiana so that looks like a Castrol exhibition. But the Lancia was already present, see behind the Bentley MSC 1000, the bonnet is open. I am not sure if I was present, maybe Solanki drove her at that time.

I have taken these pics on the morning of Supercar Rally when I was waiting at Atria Mall for my friend to pick me up.
There is a photo available on ebay and it says
India Indian Driving Vintage Car Plate I.A.R.C. Photo.

See who and whose car that is. In those days he and his family were regular participants and always dressed up.

Good to see some of these cars again! I'd gone to see them just once at the same place. That's just part of his collection!

Incidentally, here are more pics. of his collection taken a few years ago:

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/vintag...ollection.html (Hyderabad Collection)

The blue BML car is a Plymouth Savoy said to have been owned by the actress late Nargis at one point.

Aside, when I first saw your pics., I was wondering what's wrong with the numbers!! Good job!

Beautiful traveloholic.Is this the same group that specializes in ready mades? Never knew that they are true blue car collectors too.
Stanher's information that the Savoy belonged to Nargis has stirred me up, since I am a great fan of hers.
traveloholic your pictures do not show the Savoy clearly, as its eclipsed by another car. Would only request you to sometime click this car nicely.

Here is a 1946/48 (?) Ford Super of that has been recently restored. Nice to see a Pune car being restored. Part of Nitin Dossa's collection.
