Great paint finish on the black Fiat, Who's car is it.

Hope there are many more pictures to come of the other cars at the event.

What's the deal with the black surround on the 39 Dodge Sedan ??

Nice Packards specially the Mallya and the Dossa cars.The 120 convertible looks rather sad though.

I think that you are being naughty.
There were 2 MG's, a TC and a TD. Both belong to different Jethas.
The TC has an original engine, the TD...............well you already know.

No no i wasnt trying to be naughty or sarcastic or anything like that. It was a genuine question, cause i had always heard that an original engine had been sourced. In the pictures the car looks likes it has had work done to it, hence the question.

Well it really isn't my achievement, I was merely riding along in the car. The car belongs to President. He recently bought it in good condition fully intact but many more things were then further done (and remain to be done) to bring it to this level.

A mechanic who had worked on my car had told me that he had fitted an Amby engine to this TD, and some hardening work was carried out at some defence organisation or something along those lines. I think the gearbox was Herald. Am subject to correction on these matters. Either ways, the car looks neat, is regularly used, and must be tremendous fun.

You know, for years I would see an MG engine dumped literally on the footpath outside the bungalow of a well known collector in Pune. I wonder if it is still there.

More pics to follow, bikes too. Am awaiting pictures from a friend who's camera I had borrowed.

Fantastic pictures Karl. These cars look so much better at Nariman point than Kalaghoda like every year. All the modern cars look so out of place amongst these beauties. Sad we couldnt participate this year. The heat must have been killing for the cars.

And that Jaguar E Type left me speechless. And I see the evil twin of Gogi's Rolls

We missed many regulars like you and Gogiji, but of course you both were busy attending events you were more passionate about, so excused

The heat was just terrible, drained me completely. At flag off we were only given a small bottle of water for 4 of us in the car, no breakfast, no snacks, nothing. I must admit that proved a dampener, especially when being associated with the Trident. I can only imagine the plight of those in slow moving convertibles!

Superb pics Karl. There is a fantastic article on the Healey in last month's BSM. Bijoy really has that passion.
