They are there somewhere, in other threads. 'will need to dig them out patiently!

However, I would say there is no need for now, your pics. are much better!

First time I'm seeing a cracked badge on these kinda cars though.

Did anyone attend the recent antique car drive from Chennai to Puducherry organized by the local Heritage club?. I've seen some news clips and pics but would love to see a detailed review , if possible.

Those cars at ANNUR belongs to one Mr.Durai (Vintage garden) obviously most of them are for sale except a Rover ( tourer)
He is in this Vintage automobile business for past 3 decade!!

About Chennai cars, There are lots of them in that city All owned by Gentleman's, Never will they shy away from showing their cars to enthusiasts. Unlike Bangalore where you cant even get to talk to them, forget touch some Vintage and classics.

If you keep shooting off the hip like this, it is bound to happened. One must learn to be a marathon runner, a person with humility and looking to go the distance.

Hi vintage Garden
made this post in march 2010 , you took more than 2years to give this reply(you have been a member since 2009)
Have personally seen some of Durai cars in 2008 and based on that said that. Cars seen by me are Morris Minor, Ford Anglia, Vanguard, Austin A40, Somerset, Ford Prefect, Ford jeep etc. Still have some print photos of those cars. I stand by what I said 2 years ago. Don't know about the condtion of the cars he has now. Bye the way his place was also called vintage garden.

Yeah. I was in Saudi Arabia during that time I guess. Mr. Durai is my uncle. I support him in restoring his cars now. I am not a frequent visitor to team bhp forum, so just now I came across this post Anyway I invite you for another visit to our farm whenever you travel near Coimbatore. If at all we dont have quality cars you can enjoy your stay in our farm house

Bye - Happy Motoring.
