I will post the pictures there. My notes say 1929, but the horizontal slats do indicate an earlier date. Also, since Telco insist that this is a ghost, they could have got the date wrong as well.

I would say the black suits her better!
She looks lovely in black! Essentially, this car is a mini with a wolseley grill and a boot stuck to it. Notice the sliding glass on the doors? That was how Sir Alec Issigonis made space for map pockets in the doors

Ask and you shall recieve! It isn't the same car, and I used to see it on the road in my school days. She's been lying at that garage for years. Here it is just before going to the garage.

Well, I am glad it is not the same car. Is there any car in Pune that you do not have a picture of?

This Lotus Elan has a History. Rajesh Khanna had bought it as good as
Brand New for his Beau of that period --Dimple Khanna[Kapadia]
Used very rough, but still withstood all the hammering. Was standing for sale for a long time with the dealer at santa cruz linking road.

Here are more pics of the same event.

The 37 Buick.

The Corvette, Lotus and Sunbeam Talbot. In the back the Bentley and Buick are just seen.

The 170V entered as a 1926 model. Could that be right?

Pics of Pune vintage rally, 10+ years old-29.jpg

I remember a special podium created for the Wolseley, with a lot of tamasha surrounding it as always.

You'll never find me smiling in any car picture as I felt I was blocking important details in the frame. My father thought otherwise

Since all the other pictures I have have been covered, here was a unique car present, the just launched Tata Estate on display to a crowd that couldn't get enough of it as I remember.

Here are some pictures from the VCCCI event in Pune in 2001. If I remember right, in this event the judges FIVA officials, who take great pains in the judging process. While judging bikes they would even check play in the fork, action of swingarm etc.

1949 Buick I'm told was a Metro Motors car, came to Pune then to Delhi and now I think in Bangalore.

1939 Buick cabriolet

Kasli's Caddy, now thankfully back in action

Ford Custom

Jaguar, probably a 1 1/2 litre of the late 1940s

Mercedes 190SL, before restoration

MGB GT, wonder where she is now.

MG Y and Singer roadster. MG is now white, and has since left Pune.

Morris Minor lowlight cabrio, now come back to Pune
