This is superb stuff, for the museum to come up on such a large scale backed with resources. It was a long time coming, and I wish the project the very best. I am keenly watching this space.

Thats good news.Nothing displayed with the theme "transport" can be complete without an insight into the automobile industry of India:-

-the imports prior to 1955 of CBU's, SKD's and CKD's

-the throttling of the automobile industry for nearly three decades (1955-1984)

-the opening up (only partial at first with Indo-foreign collaborations with a timetable for transfer of technology) in 1983

-and then the 100% foreign equity and CBU imports after 1999

Is the 230 owned by Salgoankar's or Dempo? My Dad missed this car as the person who was mediating the deal got a better commission than what Dad offered. My Dad says this car was sold for 20K to Goa.

Neither. It belongs to the Naiks, but not the organiser of this event. That must have been in the 1990's or slightly earlier.
