Hey guys, I have an idea.

Why not all members of t-bhp comming to the vintage meet assemble at a given time, say around 8.30am and take pictures? Since the meet is at Nariman point, the sea as a background will make a lovely picture!

Let us consider this!

Cheers

Good idea. I'm in. First the vintage rally, followed by the super car show, then see the F1 race and finally dinner. What say guys?

I'm sure you mean lunch. The race is at 1.30 pm

With the Super car show and VCCCI rally on the same day and around the same time, I guess we will see a good mix of classics and modern exotics on the roads on Sunday. Marine Drive will be the place to be.

Wow man that sounds like a great plan. Unfortunately my Sunday is on tenderhooks right now, I just hope I can make it back from Pune on late Saturday night as scheduled.

...and wake up on Sunday and put down a couple of Red Bulls to keep me going !!

Default Good Wishes

I wish the Organizers - WIAA & VCCCI all the very best for their forthcoming Rally in Bombay on the 5th of April. I also wish all the participants all the very best. I am sure all of you will have a great time. Would have loved to come to Bombay to attend, but due to some important prior commitments, I will not be able to make it. Looking forward to see the photographs.

Some really exclusive cars will make an appearance at Mumbai for the first time (as far as I know). Included are a large mid 30's Graham from Delhi freshly restored in Mumbai. The car is rumoured to have had Feroze Gandhi connections. The car looks positively brilliant. Julian had posted an older picture here, mentioned incorrectly as a Graham Paige.

Also making its debut will be a very similar looking large Packard 7 seater and an even more imposing 20's Lanchester from the Mallya collection. I am really looking forward to the event, April heat nonwithstanding.

Also participarting for the first time will be a terrific Fiat, one to look out for
