What I enjoy most about this great Team-BHP is how it encompasses both young and old. Meeting "Sparkie", Indrojit on Saturday and the other members was such a pleasure and this is what this web-site is all about.
This is why I am on this forum. And great friendships have develpoed and grown. All for mutual benefit, friendship and increasing knowledge, i.e. new discoveries and education. My writing and spelling too have improved.
Age is really not a factor, I have met across the board. Only here it became a factor, and it had nothing to do with personality.

Thanks a lot Indrajit. I didn't know we have a Sunbeam motorcycle in Kolkata. I can find it from the list, but did it actually came. do you have any image of that. And I would like to request other Calcuttans who were there in the rally to upload the image of the Sunbeam if they have clicked one.

Thanks once again.

Hi,
So I was disturbing you while your car was being judged! Did you find out about the manifold drains?

To all Calcutta Team Members.

Firstly to start with thanks to Indrojit for posting the list of participants.

Then its a big thanks to all for attnding the event, taking pictures and then taking the time to upload them here.

Now there is a serious issue I need to address. If one was to go over this thread one will find many pictures , albeit taken by different people and at different angles, of the same cars.

The Packard, the various Buicks and the Cadillacs of teh restorers and such are featured again and again whereas
really interesting cars, seen only on the list, have been totally ignored.

Now what one would like to see are pictures of these. I have a small list below and hope you guys can add pictures of these cars. The first number is the cars participant number as is on the list followed by the car's name

5. Crossley 1919
8. RR 1925/26
13. Wolsley 1927
16. Studebaker 1926
33. Alvis
47. Daimler 1936
49. Jaguar 1936
50. Jaguar again
56. Dodge Brothers 1937
59. Adler 1938 + 64 Adler 1939

Now interesting as might the Buicks and the MG's are these other cars mentioned above are even more interesting. Please do try to put up pictures of these too.

The Nash which has been uploaded by Indrojit is also an interesting car and it was ignored till now.

Request you guys who attend shows to try to take pictures of all cars peresent and upload the sam and to avoid covering the same cars again and again and forgetting others.
