The Hindustan Times has this feature on the much anticipated Transport museum opening in Delhi. Apparently it is slated to open next month, which is great news. I will definitely make a visit once it is open.

Though not a public display, I found this one on FB. An ingenious work:

entire joy of the trip got dampened, heart felt heavy and tears rolled out though I hide them. Thought the car is saved rather getting chiseled but whats the fun it's going to die a slow death. One day I guess the car will break apart into two because of the wall in between which will allow rust below to form.

This car is the same which I wanted to buy before I brought Appu (delight) but, all of a sudden gone missing from the city this car was also showcased in T-Bhp somewhere.

Couldn't see the car hanging on the wall gave another offer to the resturant owner but no use. I could see 90% of original stuff on the car still intact. Felt frustrated when the wall is running between the center light and the grille, Oh! got the Italian beauty diying a slow death.

Then Anarkali today this beauty....to my eyes it's the same mercilessness.
Hi Mr.Chanu, you bet, heart bleeds to see the state these beauties are handled and for what they are used. I am sure the owner of the restaurant should be a sadist to do what he has done with that millecento.

I am sure no car lover would walk into that restaurant even to have a glass of water. Where exactly is this place in Mysore? Since Mysore is my In-laws place i do visit Mysore regularly. Really want to have a look at this beauty.

That's Mr Uday Bhan Singh's house, and the gentleman in the foreground centre is UBS himself. This jeep has been photographed many times, one of them here:

He is the famous UBS aka Uday Bhan Singh ji a well know person in Jeeping community, he has been a Jeep lover and ever since he has been only driving, restoring, collecting jeeps. He has a dedicated garage in Lullah, Kolkata and a kind person helping a lot of jeep lovers across India.

The Jeep story which is no adorned by the building is something like this, there was a Ford lying at the UBS sir yard which is half broken and is of no use except salvaging few parts so UBS thought of this and got it on his building. Initially even I thought why would someone do this to a beauty of a machine however after some search got to know this info from some forum.

Yes the car was covered in gold leaf and had an oversized steering. I have a photo on my Instagram, will have to search for the original pic now.

On April 14th, 2007 in the Pune Newsline this piece appeared about the Pune Fire Brigade's Dennis Fire Engine - a really well preserved and well presented example.

Default Re: Rust In Pieces... Pics of Disintegrating Classic & Vintage Cars

There is a nice vintage car (in restorable condition) kept outside Dakshinayan restaurant on JM Road, Pune.
Here is the link to the restaurant. Unfortunately I did not click any snaps of the car.
