Bhai you had once related a very interesting story about GJD 9483 while it was with your family. Do please share that and some of the other tales, especially how the Duesenberg came to your family and passed on

Default our OLDS '48 unrestored

This was the condition of the car when we got it into our collection. We originally had a brand new 1947 Oldsmobile as our family car for years, which finally we sold off after an accident in the early 70's.

Dear Mr.Nath.

An amazing amount of quality cars and bikes have passed through your families hands. Such impeccable taste in vintage wheels.

Please do post pictures of the unrestored Model A and the Wolsley. Also which is the unrestored Olds you spoke of. GJY from as found to what is looks like now is a splendid achievement.

Default oldmobile parts

Hi!Mr.Nath,
Thats excellent.
Would you mind letting us know as to where can we find parts for Oldsmobile, I have one friend waiting to dismantle his engine but is afraid as he has no clue where to get the parts for Oldsmobile 1948.
