I am loving the colour and texture of the 47 Ford seats.
And good workmanship too.

The blue BML car is a Plymouth Savoy said to have been owned by the actress late Nargis at one point.
This is not even a fraction of his collection.
The blue Savoy having been owned by Nargis is a tale. She came out from a house on Warden Road, was to be driven to Hyderabad and ended up being transported in a lorry because she broke down. There is a made up story there.

Default Re: Imports spotted in Nagpur !

Couple of Vintage cars I spotted in Kadbi Chowk, there were more the last time I visited Nagpur.

The red VW Beetle I think belongs to the Tuli's.

Hi

Just wanted to know who the repective owners of these cars are. Someone added me on a social networking site and in his photographs, there was an album named "My Vintage Cars". Amongst these there was a picture of Dr. Ravi Prakash's Red MG TC CAN 734, 1938 Buick 90l WBB 11 owned by our own team bhp member ( antiquecarfreak) Mr. Ashok Shah of lonavala. This person also claims to own 37 vintage cars.

Thank You

I have the set of pictures of this car as well since it was offered for sale to me at the same time. I remember that the place was the same as it is in this picture.

Indrojit.

The last picture is of some kind of military vehicle from teh ownership of the Bhawalpur royal family . This car was never in post 1947 India.

Then there is the Gondol 300 SL ....you know who owns it.

The Lancia is also pictured here somewhere being restored in Mumbai or Delhi

The Model T is from a Pune collection.

Hi Wasif,

Yes i was indeed aware of these facts. I was just wondering if there was any change in ownership recently. On saturday this person comment on a friend's photograph saying he owns 31 cars and I he sent me a message yesterday saying he owns some 37 cars.. It sounded fishy to me, hence thought i would clarify my own facts.

off topic- Still awaiting to hear from you regarding the PM i sent you.

Regards

Indrojit

I think the Lancia too is a Pakistan photo. The Gonal 300 and T Ford were shot and posted by me on the forum. The T is a Bombay car.
