Many will be aware that Mr Thakral and his team are in the process of opening India's first comprehensive Transport Museum: Heritage Transport Museum in Gurgaon.

The Heritage Transport Museum has been nominated by Mahindras in their ongoing online Spark the Rise promotion. Please see the link: http://www.sparktherise.com/projectdetail.php?pid=495

If interested, please go through the above link and see the details of the upcoming Heritage Transport Museum and if you find this project interesting kindly VOTE.
You can also give your suggestions and feedback. You may also recommend this project to your family, friends & colleagues.

This Museum will have exhibits for all generations to enjoy and relieve memories of the years gone by. On display there will be cars, bikes, busses, trucks, pedal cars, stamps, photographs, toys, enamel boards, and lots and lots of automobilia. The focus is on transport in India, a Maharaja's rail wagon, a small aeroplane, all will be shown. Horse carriages, Palanquins, buffalo carts, many such items will be displayed. I personally cannot wait to see this inaugurated, hopefully still in this year.

Cheers harit

Lightbulb Re: Pics: Vintage & Classic cars in India

Recently I saw these two cars put up on public display in an exhibition in Pune.

An Austin 7

A Chrysler

Ok, these do not belong exactly here, but I don't know if a separate thread exists for vintage scooters as well. So posting them here. Please move to another thread if required.

Yes of course they did- the Runabout (a.k.a Rajhans?) is quite well-known now- even more than when it was new!

Its engine and wheels were later used in the Bobby IIRC.

The name of the Vespa owner given reminds me of Prof. Virus!

Wow, I didn't know that. All the scooters were in bad condition except for the Vespa 150 which looked better. I won't be surprised if these are seen in the rusting classics thread a few years down the line.

You mean this car was in Delhi previously? Can you share some more details about this car? I would love to read about the history of this car

This 1930's Plymouth is displayed in the Priya Cinema theatre, near Deshapriya Park, Kolkata, since more than two decades.It has been kept gleaming.The car is quite original, with the period components. I am not sure if this one has been featured here on teambhp.The car was photographed just a few days ago, when I was in Kolkata.
I will upload a few more pictures of this car soon.

What an original 1929 Plymouth Model U. This is the first time I am seeing this car. Seems to be very very original

Couple of years back I had been to The Savoy Hotel in Noida, and had spotted the car featured below at the Chor Bizzarre Restaurant.
Is the car still there ? Has it been featured before ?

Here is the link
