Yup, that is a Wolseley, actually a badge engineered Morris Oxford/Austin Cambridge.

The Wolseley 15/60 and 16/60

Yes, but missed every bike except the Java, Suvega and the Yezdi Colt 175 (who were still there as they were not participating, just there for the fun). I was a little late and heard the bikes leaves while I was parking my car .

@Crazydiablo, Naren, [V]: Do you guys have any pics of the bikes?

She was a wolsley and she looked beautiful in the color combo. Pictures just don't do justice.

I can see two Bombay cars, one the hEaley and the Landmaster, though BYJ could have been Poona also. The HEaley brings back good memories. Great pics Santosh.

Add the Mercedes to that list.

The Healey used to shuffle between Pune, Bombay and Lonavala along with the rest of the cars of that collection. Went to the Ravi Prakash/Ravi Kumar collection (are they the same?) in Bangalore a couple of years ago.

BYJ isnt Bombay or Pune, I guess it was Kolhapur or Aurangabad or some smaller city. The red Singer BYH 2827 has a Pune number though.

Gogi, dont you remember the Alfa?

And whats the stylish looking blue-green convertible to the left of the jeep?
Absolutely. I dont know whether this was the same Alfa form Dadar Circle (a lawyer who previously owned the red convertible Camaro (it was silver and black then) which is owned by my friend with a big collection. This guy also had a XK-120. All sold way back then. The Alfa I had gone to ask him for but he did'nt want to sell (much like the Camaro and the XK) and then a week later it disappeared. I wonder if the parsee gent who owned this previously bought it from the Dadar Lawyer...is it the same car then???
Will someone tell us what that convertible is?? Looks like a drophead coupe.

Elementary my dear Kohli. Its a Jag mark 5. This pic was posted in another recent event in Bangalore, I assume its the same car. Can someone confirm if the regn was MYV 5343? That car was ex Sultan of Brunei, then my uncle Cursetjee in Calcutta, then someone in Pune, then Zaheer Vakil in Pune restored it, it was last spotted in Jaipur in a similar colour. The last digit of this car appears to be 3 or 8.







I have personally dismantled the front suspension of this Jag during my days fiddling around at Vakils garage Strangely, I had no idea that my uncle owned that very same car in Calcutta decades ago!

The ( Late ) Ravi Kumar & Dr. Ravi Praksh are different men. Ravi Kumar had a very enviable collection till he passed away ( 2001). In his stable, he had : Jag E Type ( gifted to his niece now in Bangalore ), XK 140, Merc Nueberging,Lanchester ( with Ravi Prakash now ), the famous 540 K, MG TD, Lancia Lambda,Lagonda and a host of other cars.
And then ofcourse, Dr. Ravi Prakash with the most active and varied collection of 36 cars in the country,all very nicely parked on his farm.To rattle a few names : Jag E Type roadster,XK 140, Mark II, Mark VII,Merc 170 V roadster,320 stuttgart,Nueberg,Lanchaster, Delage,Austin Healey,Ford T model,Sunbeam Talbot,1920's Sunbeam, 1920's Fiat, Buick Roadmaster,Sunbeam 1936,Ford Jeep,Mustang... the list goes on & on.
