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.

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.

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.

A little Austin with a unique full length folding roof, but appears to have fixed pillars.
Ex-Mysore then Bharatpur Bentley of Nitin Dossa.
Immaculate Buick of H Cama, part of his superb collection that are very regularly used.
Another Cartier car, the stylish 1941 Buick of Dinesh Lal. Superbly presented, the regn. plate is a dampener.
A trio of Model A Fords, totally 4 were present.
Jacob Eapen's Fords are very regularly used, and always participate.
Fali Dhondy's mint dicky seat roadster has always been in well maintained condition, even before he bought it.
The Pandits have been participating in their model A for decades. They regularly win the period costume prize. Incidentally their son is the global head of Citigroup, Vikram Pandit.
Jaguar Mk VII

Sleek 170V of Jasdanwalla was his only entry.
A frist time participant, the Silver Spirit was entered by Shivanand Shetty alongwith his cabrio Beetle.
This 58 Beetle spent many years in Pune and Lonavala, I would regularly see it as a kid. Was thrilled when I saw it again last year after atleast 10 years.

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

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!
