@ Tuffryder . How much time will you take, to reach Coimbi from Chennai by SURFACE mode ? in a Volvo Bus to peep inside a VOLVO CAR ?? & to gulp a peiece of Mysore Pak if not bananas
Though, whole post seems out of topic !!!
Mysore has some thing to do with Jawas aint it !!!

Ha, ha good one powertwin.

A little correction there, you would remember of course. I missed the last Volvo bus to leave at night from Chennai to Coimby and had to take the State Transport Ashok Leylands - changing five buses to finally complete the journey in 12 or 13 hours and getting a crash course in the language watching videos of highly entertaining Tamil chartbusters!

The Delhi to Chennai and Coimbatore to Delhi flights were equally eventful. For the flight from Delhi to Chennai I reached after the last 30 minutes before take-off had elapsed and for the Coimby to Delhi flight too I was late for check-in, reaching 15 minutes before take-off (without your and Sunil's help even that wouldn't have been possible). And since my seat had been given away to someone else on both ocassions, I was upgraded both times to business class at no extra cost, other than stern lectures on showing up late for check-in. But, I'm tempted to try this often now, especially on long hauls!

These pics are probably of MRH only. She was sort of done and redone!

BTW, the white Pagoda LHD 230 has travelled to Nepean Sea Road and can be yours for 60/65L. Far too much and good luck if someone wants to go for it.

There was a Pagoda which went from Mumbai to Delhi, it may have been MRH registered. In Delhi it was with a dealer Bagla......

Watch the car in this song and enjoy and Note the number...





Yes MRH 2300 was Feroz Khan's personal steed. He used it in his super hit film Dharmatma in a lot of shots.

Ive always wondered if that car survived, haven't seen that movie in ages, or I might have recognised the number. I have very early fond memories of my father explaining to me excitedly about this Merc everytime we saw the movie.

Karl, you are slipping You, of all people i thought, would snap out the relationship. Anyways Ram and me had a long talk over the Pagoda Top, the original colours it came in and then i remembered that Dharmatma had a similar SL in champagne colour. Ram remembered the song and the rest just followed. IN any case Feroze Khan loved this type of SL. Even Apraadh, his other film had him driving all over Europe in a white Pagoda top, in another song, this time with Mumtaz.... the song, "Hamare Siva Tumhare Aur Kitne Deewane Hain.." ... I can picture both, Scooby05 and me singing this song...to the car

The car was indeed red in colour. We had bought it from Kandla port then sold it after a few years. And it surely did not have a fiat engine

Loved it Gogi! Kya khub lagti ho ... Mukesh's instrumental-music-accompaniment-less (as were most of his his renditions generally, and comparatively) but evocatively lilting (nasal) voice nonetheless, the lyrics, the locale - the arid dessert setting with the cupric golden Pagoda. Wah, this is heaven again. Only, Rekha, and earlier Hema, naah! Zeenie? Yes, would have suited my basic instincts more, as a better Indiene frauline foil to the Benz. Topless, like the Merc? Well wishful thinking, this ain't an RK production afterall!

Talking of Mumtaz and the white pagoda, how about the Alfa, and the myriad other cars in that flick?! Happiness, is this.

If wishes were horses. Feroz Khan was particularly fond of Mercs, besides his leading ladies, both of which displayed in his movies elaborately.

I remember the cars from Apradh but he did drive the Ferrari on the track and the Pagoda top on the roads.

Unfortunately, after Qurbani he quite lost it and that was the last FK International bannered film i was a fan of, Zeenie baby not withstanding.
