I noticed the Mini is TN 21 regd. Those are the ones to steer clear of right?

Nice to see that Charger and Healey. Simply superb cars those. Even happier to see 2 Ambys giving them company.

Any pics of that Ford/Vauxhall (?) in front of the Morris 1000?

Does that Citroen Avant belong to a famous doctor who happens to be a distant relative? I have seen and posted the car on the forum before, but not sure if the same one?

I missed this.....

Ajit that E type is divine, is it a V12? I thought I noticed the fender of your green MG, post some full shots of your car, different angles, interior shots, the uprated engine etc. Come on Ajit you need to get the drool factor up!

Would love to see detailed shots of the E type too. Can you get pictures of his SS?

Default Sunday Fun Run

DKG, heyy there, we had a great time Sunday. Been trying to upload pics but the damn thing refused to upload about ten times. Just gave up. That Jag E Type Roaster is a V12 and just awesome. You have to hear that exhaust note. Easily the best Jag E Type in this country. My MGB pics will be up soon too. The Citoen Avanat is not the one owned by Dr.Cherian. This one is owned by Mr.Srivardhan.

Is it because it is re-registered ? Does it lose value because of that ? It is still a vintage right ?

I think the Alfa MRG 5336 used to be in Bombay/Lonavala not very long ago, maybe 4-5 years. Am I right?

Here is the much talked about Jag E type Series 3 V 12. There was one imported to Pune in the 90s, a white hard top, also V 12. It bore California plates "LOVE V 12" if I remember right. Wonder where it is now.

Default Chennai Fun Run

The MGB is a 1967 Roadster originally from Bandra in Mumbai. Have had it for a long time now. It came with an Ambassador engine, which I threw out and imported the OSELLI tuned road engine with the capacity increased from 1800 to 2050 cc. Has twin Weber carbs, dual point electronic ignition, and a host of other upgrades. The car has otherwise been kept aesthetically stock.
Will be shortly changing all the lenses and other bits to make it look even better. The rims are also imported from England. It had wire wheels, which are difficult to maintain, and rust all the time. These wheels give it a more macho look. These are 15 inches against the original 14 inch wire wheels.
