That Caddy belongs to Mohamme Bhai, vintage car enthuseast, restorer and dealer.

It might be for sale but be assured the price will be way above what the car is actually worth.

This car was in a mess prior to the resto. If i remember correctly this car used to belong to the Fashions Drycleaners family.

They also were doing a Super 8 sedan which used to belong to Doc Venkat Rao and his 36 Ford convertible sedan.

I had bought a early twenties Study Big Six from them but the car was in a very bad shape and beyond my capacity to restore. Mohd Bhai was kind enough to take it back at the same prie he had sold it to me for. Wonder if this car is around now.

The Buick was from some district and was bought with a Diesel engine. It sat for years in a garage near the end of the old airport runway till he had all the bits together. I think it is now done, maybe it is APO 1, the black Buick I have seen in pictures here.

I think the Ford was also nearing completion some time back, painted in a neat black and cream combo. This car was a twin of the Azeez Bagh Ford, only two of them in Hyd at that time.

This Mercedes can't be an original diesel engined car as there is a 200 badge on the rear.

The diesel version whould have had a 200D badge. The 200 was the petrol engined car. All 123 series Diesel cars came with the D suffix.

Wasif seems like th D has fallen or broken as the underline chrome strip seems longer before the 200 than after.

Guys its 6 lacs for one single car.

Wonder why they are priced so much.

Seen the Beetle's personally even before the present owner had owned it, Not the right kind of price.

About the Fiat 600, are they worth that much ?

And 'wonder why, for that price per car, every one of the cars is parked out on the roadside?! Is it only during the day? Or maybe he plans to build a proper shelter for his biz. with the money he hopes to get on each of the cars!
