Here is a brace of MG-TCs, the first an older restoration by Partha, but still very competitive and a more recent restoration.

A very nice 1926 Packard and 1928 Studebaker, both great cars that are in need of some tender loving restoration to make them both Show Stoppers.

With the rising price of Vintage & Classic Cars, it would be money well invested!

My setting went off on my camera so the colours are off, sorry.

Fantastic. Absolutely gorgeous machines there. Every car is so immaculately maintained that it has taken me for a surprise. Never knew Kolkata has such awesome rides. Amazing pics !!

Here's Sanjays Stable, as always very well Groomed. Enjoyed seeing their 47, 48, & 49 Big Buicks particularly the 49.

I was taking photos of the rear of all the cars and couldn't find the filler cap on the 50 Caddy and when I asked Sanjay he showed me the "flip top" tail light and said that during the riots when many cars were torched by putting lighted rags in the gas tanks his Caddy while suffering some fire damage was intact because they couldn't find the gas tank!

These cars are part of the Mittel Collection, most of them acquired about 15 years ago from Shashi Kanorias Collection. It was great to see them so well presented this year.

On the way home I followed the 1912 Standard and was so very impressed how smoothly it ran and handled.

It should be noted that two of Calcuttas better known "Collector/Restorers" were absent this year, Gautam Mukherjee and Shashi Kanoria, and look forward to seeing them and their Stables of Exceptional Cars next year.

The Army had their Austin Sheerline and an interesting Merc "War Trophy" liberated during the Bangladesh War.

Also the Calcutta Police Dodge Kingsway.
