Thanks friends.There is a press conference on 12th August 2010.
In fact Shahrukh Cassad, Ashish Limbanna and Shrirish Deodhar are more instrumental in the formation of the CIVAA with the sole motto of uniting old car and bike lovers and pledging that the rare cars and bikes should not move out of the Orange City.
harit In fact read your post that a DKW has arrived at Nagpur. The fact is confirmed but the owner is out of town. Lets hope it participates in the 15/08 Run.

We had a press conference yesterday. All members and participants were asked to come with their jalopies at 3.00 pm at a venue. The coverage was excellent by the local press. A Rolls Royce Phantom II is also to participate.
The static show is near Arun Automobiles, Khamla Square from 10.30 am till 12.30 pm. The Independence Day Run will commence at 1.00 pm. The route has been told which is towards the western side of the city firstly. Then it moves to Central, North and later East, South East and back to the starting point.
About 60 participants have enlisted including 40 four and 20 two wheelers.

Three Landmasters are participating. One a black 1954 model, the next mine again black a 1955 model and the third a 1956 model painted grey. The two other Landmasters are fitted with the Amby OHV engine while mine has the original side valve. So I guess I will have to watch those cars overtake mine all the time.

Happy Independence day to all.Attended the CIVAA (Central India Vintage Automobile Association) Independence Day Show.Never expected that huge swarms of people will flood the venue, good to see so many people taking interest in Classics and vintages.Met fellow Bhpians VR/46 (Prachetas) and Anjan Sir, Bhpian Avneeshj( with his TT and Q7) was there but coudn't find him around.Now for Some pics, sorry for not so good clicks as humidity and crowds were making me crazy.This just a first hand account, detailed report and pics will be posted by VR/46 and Anjan Sir.

Great set of pics, agspins! Looks like you had fun. I could not make it in time for the event, and by the time I got there (around 12.30), it was all over. I did see some of the old beauties pass me by on the road in the morning.

The Chevrolet truck looks amazing. I think it belongs to a transporter who lives in Shivaji Nagar. I have seen the truck parked in front of his house. I think he owns the Harley too. Anjan's Landy looks very original. Lots of army disposal jeeps seem to survive in Nagpur, but they look heavily modified. The Triumph is a regular appearance at all classic events in Nagpur. Could not see Mukherjee's '48 Jaguar 1.5 liter in the pics, did he give it a miss? Also Kale's Adler was missing. Also could not find any of the Fords from in and around Nagpur. I guess as this was the first big event by CIVAA, the participation will improve in later events.

But kudos to CIVAA to have organized this event. It motivates the owners of these beauties to keep their cars and bikes in running condition and keep on improving.

As agspins has already uploaded a photofeature of the event the participating cars and bikes are already on the viewers mind.There were many, many participants and enthusiastic crowds at the flag-off venue (M/s Arun Automobiles, Khamla Square, Nagpur) and all along the route. The entries just poured in and the tiniest bikes/ scooters to the mightiest 1942 Chevrolet bus and the almighty Rolls Royce Phantom II were all there.The earliest CIVAA calculations 9during our meetings) of about 35 participants in the first place was quite conservative and nearly 58 participants came for the run.
Thanks to agspins for the detailed photo feature.Organiser Shahrukh Cassad sends his thanks to you for uploading so many fantastic pictures. I just spoke to Shahrukh.Thanks to Prachetas,our fellow teambhpian and the P220 man for cheering us all up.
There were the Lambrettas, Bullets, Ariels,AJS", a Harley Davidson of 1922 and many more older vintage and classic bikes and scooters.
Among the cars were the 1932 Rolls,1957 Chevrolet Belair (steered by Shahrukh Cassad),1932 Chrysler,1936 Ford, 1966 Dodge Dart, a 1967 Chevrolet Chevelle, A mid 1950's Dodge Kingsway,Triumph, 1966 Morris Oxford,two Volkswagen Beetles, FOUR Landmasters,FOUR WWII Willys/Ford jeeps,a 1952 Hindustan 14 (Morris MO Series) and many more.
The run started at 12.30 pm and ended at 3.30 pm at the starting point.The route crisscrossed through the ORANGE CITY covering the west, central, north, east and southern parts.
