After a long lull, some action at KVCCC. This was a drive to KRS Dam, Mysore with an over night stay and return.

Pagal Gymkhana in progress, which was time trial on fixed route with tight turns etc. As expected the big American's could not succeed. I heard that the Fiat's did particularly well!

Any way to find out if the Standard MYV-2488 once belonged to Fg.Off. K.P.Muralidharan, IAF ?

He was my uncle, a Hunter pilot lost over Pakistan, Dec 4, 1971. Had a similar car and a Jawa; and grew up in Mysore.

I am given to understand that this is a Bangalore car and the previous owner was one Mr. Srinivas.

The Austin 7 is an economy car that was produced from 1922 until 1939 in the United Kingdom by Austin. It was nicknamed the "Baby Austin" and was at that time one of the most popular cars produced for the British market and sold well abroad. Its effect on the British market was similar to that of the Model T Ford in the US
