Yes it is. Fabulous collection. There is one other person in Bombay by the name of Rasool who also has quite a few Buicks. Somehow no one seems to have photographed his cars.

Pictures of some of them are on the forum, posted by Ishan. I think it was the 'classics being restored' thread.

Many years back, I used to see a rich planter drive around in a Left hand Buick super convertible in Palai town near Kottayam.
Casino hotels family also used to have a Buick

Bangalore has one Buick owned by one Mr Balu Yadalam, super silent and a great runner.

And the second Buick is owned by one gentleman in Bangalore, its a Buick Roadmaster, black in color, still with 6V wiring and all original bits. Will be restored sometime soon , but i intend to retain the 6V setup on this car and also located a brand new 6V battery for the same.

The Khoday's Buick was on display at the Bangalore Club Event. This too was in immaculate condition. The Yadalam car has been owned by the family from the beginning. Hence there are two cars in immaculate condition in Bangalore. Khodays may have more cars but it would be wrong to estimate.

I guess Pavan is posting on Belliappa's car. He is known to our family well. Has the car come from Madikeri to Bangalore?

Could you post some pics of these Buicks. I am sure there are many more interesting Buicks in Bangalore other than these two you mentioned.
