Nice thread. There're lots of classics hidden in various parts of Travancore, Kochi and Malabar together which makes up the God's own country.
Hope we can bring all of them out here in this thread.

@Foby. It would be better if you could rotate the pictures before you post here.

Does Thiruvithamcoor Maharaj got a lot of cars ?If someone can get some pics ,will be nice
also ,I read in some magazine about the Buick models etc available with TKM group ,Kollam.

Good Luck whoever owns it.
