Thats me and dad perring into the MASSIVE engine that was lurking under the jag. Also, we happened to meet the First owner of MRY 3112 in the rally. He was delighted to see us!!

Govind was going mad in the car! Dint get a chance to ride with him though. I was with the Bhale's the entire rally. The ride in the Impala is just brilliant! And I was scared like crap when we went in the SL55. crazy stuff! The ride back home in his new Range Rover was fun too..

Karl I saw you when you were talking to Govind, I called out but you dint hear me I guess. Can I have some more pics of the Impala please?

Which photos on this thread were taken from a cellphone? I think all of them were pretty neat.

Excellent pics and report guys. Looks like you all had a blast.

Loved the RR Silver cloud and the MGB and the other Rolls. Love those spoked rims on the MGB.
