Seems like both 1934 Alvis and 1936 Daimler are having similar tail lamps. Which one is original. And I could not find any info on net for 1933 Fiat Tipu (tipu brings pages for tipu sultan). Loved the Jeep there.

Here a few more shots that I hadn't posted.
1. A shot of a great looking engine that I'm not sure which car it comes from.
2. I missed photographing the Merc but did get some engine shots and used a shot from the The statesman Rally.

Great pics and soem truly great cars.

The pic of the show would be the two RR, the Bentley followed by the Alvis, remarkable cars.

I particulary like the paint finish on the Police Kingsway and the maroon Styleline Chevy.

What model is the Alvis and what is its history. It has a lovely patinated look to teh seats abnd the dash, would love to see engine shots of this car.

That SS1 tourer is also a very good looking car. Thise front bars are not original though, just added to make it look like a SS100 I would imagine.

The Daimler is also a great looking cae. What model is it and what is its history.

The Study 8 is another awsome car, haven't see it before, would love some jhistory on it.

The Jaguar 1.5 Sedan WBC 2171 is actually not a "SS Jaguar" but a regular Jaguar 1.5 sedan from the post war production.The pre war and the SS models of this car had some differences like the door handles and the side chrome strip were seperate and they were combined on teh post war cars. Does this car still have the tool kit built into the boot lid ?

What is that strange contraption like a frame on the Lancia's windscreen. This car also doesn't seem to have the correct meters on the dash nor the correct wheels and spinners.

It is a pity to see that those imposing RR's are riding on ADV tires like a few other cars here.

All in all I must say I am really impressed by the manner in which restoration standards have improoved in India, vey commendable.

Thanks to you John for taking the time and the trouble to visit, take pics and then take the time to post them.

This years Tolly Car Show wound up as the Managing Member A. R. Mukerji, holding the mike, presented a bag of gifts to the participants.

A shot of WBE-1 (WBF-1's big brother) leaving and at the gate, hot on her heels, the hotter than Hot, Ferrari.
Hope there is a merger in the offering!

I think it was one of the best Car Shows yet and hopefully A. R. Mukerji will encourage his fellow members to restore their old Dodge Ambulance. His email address is managingmember@gmail.com

Hopefully others will have photos to post.

Awesome show! A fantastic, seemingly endless display of cars AND 2-wheelers! Now this is what I call a show where you get your heart's fill!
