Ok a small clarification - its not a cool cab. Its quite an old post and since at that time there were only cool cabs painted in these colors, the thread was named such.

Will edit and change the name to something more appropriate- If someone could help identify the cars on this thread.

Thanks

Obviously that is no cool cab - it is a 1951 (?) Cranbrook that used to be single tone blue earlier, owned by a Jewish family in Pune I'm told. Then went to Bombay to a collector, and now in another collection. Really original car.

Thread title changed accordingly.

Since we are discussing Cranbrooks (very good looking in my opinion), here is another Cranbrook I had posted earlier, in the Andamans.

And a neat Savoy in Bombay.

Came across this classic parked at Kuruppamthara on the Ernakulam-Kottayam road, today morning. Well maintained and a nice one though my pic spoiled the looks.

That is a 1955 Chrysler Corp Car, in all probability a Dodge Kingsway or a Plymouth Savoy

Strangely I notice more than 50% of the classics photo'd in Kerala are brought from Madras, with their Madras (MS) numbers still intact! Has this always been the case or a recent occurrence?

it is a recent occurence and especially with classic/old cars.These guys dont prefer to change the registration for any/all of the following reasons.
1.you will get the new type of registration numbers(KL-01) which looks odd on old cars.
2.the hurdles involved in getting an NOC
3.Many of these cars may have had tax arrears,fitness due,etc which may be done only after restoration and for that the car has to be physically taken to the RTO where it has been last registered

Hi Karl. any pics of this car or perhaps the name of the "reader" ? If the car in question is RHD then it would most likely be Indian. A pic of the makers plate would provide the correct answer for sure !

And what exactly is a "reader" anyway ?

I do not have any more details, just what I have posted earlier.

A "reader" is one who reads a paper, magazine, or in this case the forum, and writes in with a query regarding his car. What am I missing here?
