Yup, thats an MG TC. Non original headlights, and missing soft top.

Is it just me or does the number plate read Buffalo?

[quote=karlosdeville;499352]Well, I dont know if the T series MGs were ever badged the midget. This here is the original TC, post war. quote]

Karl. there were never any badges other than MG on the early cars, but the the small engined MG sports cars were all officially MG Midgets, eg. MG Midget Type M, TypeD, type J, Type PA/B,Type TA/B/C/D/F. there was never a TE, because the advertising deparment thought it sounded too much like tee hee. the larger engined sports cars were Magna and Magnette series
.the first MG to be badged with the model name, i think was the TF 1500

That Lincoln was originally from Pune, went to Bombay and now again bought back to Pune. What a journey and is that a 68 Impala/Biscayne/Belair?

You know Gogi, that Lincoln is getting restored to be put in a glass enclosure in one of the factories. I am sure you know the owners

Its an Impala. The one without the gorgeous looking fins on the boot.

Ishan, the Dodge looks to me in a roadworthy state. What is the owner planning to do?

It is completely roadworthy Kiran, I even got a short Test Ride in it! (Very comfortable & loads of space before you ask!) But it's a dealer prepared car so is not upto show standards. Thus, the owner wants to strip her down & give her a nice paintjob apart from some suspension work & an interior redo.

P.S. I personally thought it's a very 1930's New York Mafia car!

Thats a damn desirable classic with that football field wheelbase! She does look very presentable as she stands, but perfection has no limits. Keep us posted on the progress.

Poona has (I hope its still there) a similar 2 door cabrio. These pics were shot at a 2005 rally.



Note the ornate brake light with DODGE script.
