Great Pics there, Flyingspur. I visited Udaipur last month and captured the Vintage museum too! I am still writing a travelogue on Udaipur. If you are interested, here is the link of the Vintage museum:

The cars have been kept really well. From what i hear the cars are all running and one can book them for an event. The palace is also let out for various events. So that is how the cars and the Palace are both in good condition.

Indeed, the Palaces as well as all the Vintage and Classic cars are in mint condition and one can book them for an event.

Yup there were only 2-3 cars which the guide mentioned as ''under restoration'' or ''due'' for restoration. The paint of some of them was gleaming like new, the red for example.

Post Udaipur's Current Kings Priced Possessions!

I had recently visited Udaipur.
The Current King, Adhiraj Raj Rajeshwar, is a car fanatic. (Wish he'd be on Team-BHP! )
Along with his palace, which is now a UNESCO heritage site, he also has a small car museum. His collection includes, 1956 Mercedes Benz 180D, 1938 Cadillac 5-Seater Conv. Sedan, 1924, Rolls-Royce 20 H.P. (Tourer) and many more!!
Have a look!

Wow! great work DNM, keep them coming! The merc looks absolutely flawless

The 190 db, is very badly maintained. it is a priceless classic and look at the condition of the roof and the steering wheel! the exterior looks decent though
