Actually according to that article he was gifted the sunbeam by its previous owner, who'd been suffering from a health problem and Doc is said to have given him some free treatment or something then, besides seeing his passion for the car he decided to gift it to him.

Nice pics. but.....OMG!! That poor Herald!! :sob:

Although, much as it embarrases me to admit- I once had a plan of doing the same thing with a scrap herald if I got my hands on one. Hehe!
'never materialised though.

'least they couldve fitted the proper chome hubcaps instead of those ghastly plastic ones.

It even has its side-trim intact, 'wish I could have that!

Dominator,

We do not have many cars in Mangalore, due to weather condition some rusted away and many sold before we woke up.

Apart from my Austin, there is a Standard Avon, Morris 8, Chevrolet, couple of morris minors,Ford prefect, Merc benz, Fiats and some jeeps.
I can say 0.001 % of Bangalore ones....hahahaha
and couple of bikes.

Now from last 5 years, we are with couple of old gents trying to get together once or twice a year.

Cheers

Not to miss the Steering Wheels on the wall. Also a collection of Wheel Caps, Wheels,Number Plates, Enamel Boards a phenomenal collection of 9000 books on cars.
I pushed out the Fiat for the pictures for Karl & the Fiat gang. It has never participated in any rallies. It is just part of his collection. Like wise he has other cars also, I am not featuring here, like an Amby, unrestored steam engines and a host of cars under restoration.
