Statesman Vintage & Classic Rally - The scrutiny of cars was done at the Modern School, New Delhi on two days, Friday and Saturday, I could not go on Friday and I went very late on Saturday and I could get to see only a few cars and could take photographs of the same. I am uploading some of the photographs.

Got a tip off from SS-Traveller regarding the event. Went for a quick visit to rail museum where the final event was to take place. Had to come back early due to some personal commitment.

was pleasantly surprised by the cars crossing the DND toll bridge, but was sad to see over 6 cars which broke down and were being repaired on the roadside, including the boat tail rolls royce which was broken down right after the toll gate.

Great pics keep them coming.

That RR Skiff looks so neat, is that from Ranjit Mallik. What is its background.

Nice to see ADY 1386 my old Lincoln at this event. That car was a blast to drive, would leave rubber on the road when floored.

That set of drawers on the RR look too crude to have been done by any professional coachbuilder, may be they are period add ons done by one of its earlier owners.
