Default Royal House of Mewar Car Collection

Though I am not much of a Vintage lover, found these images today as I was cleaning My Laptop. Thought of sharing these with everyone. The original Palace Garage, near The City Palace Complex, was painstakingly reconstituted into the Vintage and Classic Car Collection in February 2000. The new collection showcases old limousines and rare automobiles belonging to the Royal House of Mewar. All the cars are in perfect running condition. An original Burmah Shell petrol pump is also located on the premises. The quaint pump, still in working condition, adds yet another touch of nostalgia and authenticity to the Collection. The preservation and development of the Vintage and Classic Car Collection demonstrates the sensitivity of the House of Mewar towards cultural heritage conservation.

Been for a ride in most of these cars. Some are well maintained/restored, and others are just about average.

Did you get your free drink?
