I couldnt make it thanks to a lunch meeting I HAD to attend. I regretted it the moment I heard the turnout for the show.

Isn't it the other way around? Pune car (regd MH 14 Y 123) seems to have RHD wipers while Chennai car (TN 07 AR 12) has LHD wipers.

The Jawa tank seems to read "OGAR". Can someone explain?

Let me confuse you even more.

RHD Jags till the 1980's always had the wipers pointing towards the driver (like the RHD Logan nowdays). similarly for LHD's.

Karl, a Google search for Ogar bikes showed this as the result. It does seem to be a rare piece.

Oldtimer gallery. Motorcycles. 1948 Jawa-Ogar 350.

The SS100 and the E type belong to Mr. TT Raghu of the TTK group. The SS100 is apparently a phenomenal restoration with much work done in the UK from what I gather. This car once upon a time belonged to the TVS family.

The white Buick belongs to the owner of MRF tyres, Mr. Mammen. The last I saw that car it was a dark on light grey, looks lovely in white.

A couple of cars like a Vauxhall Wyvern belong to the AVM studios family

Its wonderful to see so many Madras cars coming out. From the turn out in previous years this is a huge collection.

Also its wonderful to see many of them being maintained so well.

Really good show! 'especially loved the Triumph Herald 12/50 (owned by Mr. CS Ananth)
I thought he'd brought his Vanguard estate also for this rally though.

And yes, more pics. of the blue herald MSW 9958 would be welcome! If its the same car I'd once even seen in madras, it was originally a saloon.

Sorry you are wrong. 9958 was a direct import convertablle from England by the founder chairman of Standard Motors. I know for sure because I worked in the group. My Vanguard is in the picture by girish and the triumph was there too, along with my dark green1935 Series I morris 8 & maroon minor.
