Default Vintage & Classic Car Collection in Goa

Goa was colonised by portuguese till 1961. The silver lining to it was the abundance of the imported vehicles, motorcycles they bought to Goa. Many people still treasure these vintages and have kept in pristine condition. Many of these marvellous machine are going through bad phase and landing in scrap yards.. Though I am from Goa, I don't work there but visit frequently. Expect a lot of pictures of these cars from scenic Goa. Any goans on this forum?

Hey Darshan, I am from Goa as well and an avid vintage and classic car fan. Have practically spent all my vacations in Goa.

I am trying to find the pictures that forum member V-16 took from the museum in Verna - Goa. Will get back to you.

Welcome aboard Darshan.

If you go through the forum you will see many pictures of classics in Goa, but scattered elsewhere for want of a dedicated thread. You will especially find many Beetles.

I spotted these on my last trip.

Simca


Standard Super 10



A fin tail Mercedes with W210 headlights grafted in!



More later.

A plethora of well maintained cars from a private collection. Isnt he related to you AMATMO?









And some not so well maintained ones...









He has a lot of other cars too but some under different stages of restoration. A real friendly and passionate (about cars) guy.

Default Goa Classic's

BMW Isetta: Think its a 1957 model. This one is a right hand drive and the door is hinged on the left. I think in the european model it was hinged on the right.

I own two BMW R12 motorcycles sidecar combinations which were used in WWII ... and then later by the Portuguese army in Goa until the state was liberated.
