I dont want to mince words but, I think there's no sense in having a category called Indian built classics if your going to discriminate within that. I see no harm in displaying say a 54 Fiat if its the best, original Fiat in the country. Made in India or not. By that criteria one would have to exclude Beetles and similar cars. Other countries take pride in their indegenous Motoring heritage, look at where the Trabbies are going in Germany. Why cant we? Whats wrong in displaying the Dharampur Herald?

Well these are just my thoughts, but then again we continue to discriminate like this, we may soon find Landmasters rarer than some of the displayed classics.

Notable point indeed, amol!

While it can be agreed upon that the Hindusthan range of cars are way too 'Indianised' even in their names itself, the Fiats and Standards, if any around, deserve a fair chance to be included in any and every show (I dont mean just HMCI) especially when there is a category relevant to them provided.

Anyways, I don't mean to target any club/organisation negatively, nor do anyone else I'm sure but the reason I (and I'm sure the others) feel the way I do is because post-war Fiats and Standards (even the Italian and British ones respectively) have since long been denied admittance as classics into shows held by most popular and thriving vintage/classic clubs in India, a case point being probably the most famous/oldest one in India, until recently.

According to the information availble with us the MK VII Jag is a 1951. This has been recently aquired by a member of HMCI Mr.Naresh Ojha. I am not certain who has restored but most probably it has been restored by Mr.Sandip Kathari.

You are right. I just checked with the present owner. This car was earlier restored by Mr.Bumpu Sircar in Calcutta. However, after the car was bought by Mr. Naresh Ojha and brought to Delhi, the car has been repainted by Mr.Sandip Kathari and the upholstrey has been redone.
