Another well coordinated event by HMCI. Kudos to Mr. Jatti and all the members of HMCI.

I am especially glad to hear about the HMCI website. Finally, we can hope to have a good repository of information specifically on vintages and classics in India. Great job!

The Kellner Rolls came originally from Baroda, the family apparently gave it to their driver when he retired. It changed a couple hands including a Parsi RTO boss and Garwares, and was with actress Mumtaaz for some time, and from there she went to Delhi.

Dear Wasif,
In the 1960's. when the driver was given the car, he cried. Its value was about Rs 5000/-, a lot of money at that time but a horrible way to give retirement money. At that time!
I am very doubtful if Garwares had the car, but in 1970's it belonged to a Mr. Chatterjee who also had a Silver Wraith 7 seater which travelled to Singhanias and now is with Mr. Rishi Agarwal. After Mr. Chaterjee film actree Mumtaz became the owner.

Regarding the Rolls without the rear body, somehow I could not find the reference. But there is a car now in Delhi which has no body from the front door pillars onwards. That car was a Bhavnagar state car, passed on to Bhavnagar Municipality where they removed the body maybe to make a fire truck. This was sold a few years ago, even tender was advertised in the newspapers. All those who went and found the price too high at that time have enough time to rue their decision not to buy.

Cheers harit

Karl my man! I know how helpful Team BHP is (and you know how much it helped me in my research), but like you said, its good to have a "functional" website for a club in India. (My office network interprets the VCCI website as potential threat )

Default Auto Expo- 2010 Vintange & Classic Automobile Display

The Heritage Motoring Club of India will be exclusively participating in the 10th Auto Expo 2010, January 5-11, 2010 with an unparalleled display of 90 vintage and classic autos, providing you seven full days of classic autos! The display will be spread in area of over 20,000 sq.ft.

We will be showcasing the best restored thoroughbred classics as also rare, exotic, iconic and popular models of classic automobiles from 1920-1970 with the objective of creating greater understanding and appreciation of our passion.

The HMCI is the sole institution that has participated in each of the past four Auto Expos of 2002, 2004 ,2006 and 2008. The quality of our participation in Auto Expo 2010, is likely to be far better than our efforts in the previous Auto Expo's.

Apart from the Classic cars and bikes, we will have on display a Automotive Fine Arts Exhibition - Paintings, Sketches and Automobilia by renowned masters will be on display at our Pavilion.

Also on display will be an early 1900 bow top horse drawn carriage manufactured in France by H.B.Sleeman, a very rare design, completely enclosed with louvered doors and windows. The carriage has been authentically restored by a member of HMCI.

Any one interested in display of well restored vintage/classic car or motorcylce/scooter manufactured before 1970 may contact : sbjatti@gmail.com.

Participants wanting to display their vehicle must provide not later than 28th December, name, model and description of the car/motorcylce including correct history and interesting details about the car and the owners full name along with a recent photograph of the vehicle. Detailed terms and conditions for display will be e-mailed to those who send the details of their vehicles as outlined above.

The selection of vehicles will be at the sole discretion of the Governing Body of HMCI.

Generally weekdays are better as there is not much of crowd. Weekends are really crowded and very difficult to enjoy the expo.
