The second pic is a lovely DKW and I believe that I am seeing this car for the first time. I do not know who the owner is and do not want to offend, but one comment is needed, those headlights, excellent pieces, but are too big for this car. And mar the front look. Sorry, but that how I see it. These headlights are jewels which should adorn a larger car.

I agree with you that the Head Lights look a little big for a small car with fairly small fenders. Having said that, I would like to clarify that I do-not have much knowledge about DKW's and hence my comments may not be appropriate. The car belongs to Mr.Ranjit Malik.

Jatti Sab, it is just amazing that you have so many regular events at your club. Add to that, the turn out and cars are also impressive.

The Triumph was red when sold from Bangalore and it was later repainted black in Delhi. Now I see a white car. Is it the same car ?

You are correct. The Triumph TR 3, was painted black first and subsequently painted off-white by the present owner Mr.Naresh Ojha.

Absolutely, they appear to be P100s, and stick out like a sore thumb on this car.

My great grandfather had 2 DKWs in the 40s. One was a donor car for spares so I assume they must have been from the 20s/early 30s. This was in Lucknow, and the donor car came by bullock cart from Agra. After he was done with it, the donor car was sold to his neighbour who also had a similar car to further scavenge. I wonder if this has a connection, also being UP regd. Though from description our car was not a cabrio, but had a full length sun roof.

Jatti appears to be a foggy morning at Delhi. A very good collection of a wide variety of classics and vintage beauties. The Plymouth Savoy Suburban, Dodge Kingsway and the Studebaker Commander are awesome.Your red Mustang with the radials too, stands out.The Chevrolet Belair also looks OK.

Nice pics SB. Whats the story on the white RR - MH01R216. That car was silver earlier and was on sale at a famous dealer in Mumbai. Price quoted was in the region of 25-30 lakhs. Any idea why it was repainted white?

The car has been totally redone by the present owner Mr.Rajeev Joseph, who has chosen the Colour to be white. I have no idea what price he paid for the car.

Hi,

I live Toronto and grew up near Detroit, and purchased my first car a 1930 Model A when I was 15 for $35. That was 55 years ago.

This "unique" color, this one is a little off as I remember, was quite popular way back when.

Ford had their "tropical rose" which when dad got a bigger family car a 1953 big dodge sedan, my brother and I took our green 1950 Morris Minor convertible with a tan top and had it painted black, the area under the body trim below the bonnet painted "tropical rose" put a white rubber paint on the top, full fender shirts, all the rage, dropped the back end and milled the head. It was a looker!!

I just did up our Calcutta Fiat 1100 deluxe in a "baby blue" a color fiat offered not to sure here in India but in Italy and between the web and autocolorlibray were able to come up with a close match.

I have lots of fond memories of it. We drove into Windsor, across the river from Detroit, one Sat. afternoon to see a movie and left the top down. When we came out, their had been a big thunderstorm and found about 2 inches of water on the floor. Being resourceful boys we went to a garage and borrowed a hammer and pointed chisel and punched 4 holes to let the water out!

Its hard to find the correct color matches, BUT, if you check out on google "autocolorlibrary" you can access a very comprehensive reference for most of the major car manufacturers.

To see some great cars google;
rm auctions the worlds top car auction house
hemmings motor news

i had an article on the Calcutta Statesman Rally published by Hemmings Motor news that can be seen by googling "hemmings motor news calcutta concours"
