This is a sort of a pre-event to the Sportscraft Rally on the 20th

Lovely Sarbareesh! Wish you could have posted more pictures of the Packard, the most treasured among the Fab Four!

@speedy-could you tell us more about this event?

The Packard is bottle green with cream .
The Packard is mine and the Caddy 56 belongs to my uncle. The Dodge Custom Royal belongs to Harit.

The event was to be on sunday driving from Inorbit Mall upto Dukes Retreat in Khandala. There was to be lunch and then the drive back. More of a fun drive than a rally. I was informed that the event has been postponed to the 23rd due to Sunday being Ambedkar jayanti.

No issues she does look black in one of the pictures here. You get a beeter view of her in my gallery. That looks to be a chevy but i could be wrong.
Dukes retreat the venue is in Khandala but in a whole just 4 kms from Lonavala if you go technically. Lonavala is a tourist spot and a retreat for people who want to get out of the hussle bussle of the city. Khandala is the quit side of things. A layman just refer to both places as Lonavala itself. There is only one postponed event by sportscraft.

Nice display. The Custom Royal looks stunning. Is it possible to learn more about this car and its history. What capacity is the engine, it it an automatic ?

Some side views of this gem would be much appreciated.

The Caddy and the Packard are stunners too. That poor Model A looks so out of place with these other beauties.

Some more pics of the cars. This is the advantage of working nearby. I can witness these beauties everyday

My personal favorites are the Dodge and Caddy.

The engine in teh Dodge Custom, is it a Hemi. The body styling is so anazing, very close to teh Letter series Chrysler cars of that era.

What does it drive like ?
