Hey Ajay!

You seem to know most vintage cars in kerala. My Dad owned a Bug Fiat(500)...must have been a 1952-60 year. I'm trying to find that car.

Do you know of any BugFiats in Trivandrum or in Kerala? I heard it was with someone in Angamaly last. Please Help. Thanks.

Pics of some vintage cars from an auto expo held in trivandrum.

Apart from Landmaster and 1100 i don't know name of other cars

Can anyone identify the green car in particular and give an insight to history of it,asked the organizing people available there,even they don't know much about it other than its name.
