Report & Pics: April 2010 VCCCI Rally Mumbai
Just got back home from the event, a somewhat smaller turnout (and venue), but good fun all the same. Great cars, old friends, new acquaintences make for a great day, heat nonwithstanding!
Here are a few pictures in random order, especially the newer cars that haven't been seen so often.
Handsome looking late 30s Chrysler, seen previously on the forum in black at an event in Bangalore.
Also belonging to the same owner, this Thrupp and Maberly bodied landaulette made her debut. I think the front plate said Cooch Behar no 8.
Silver Ghost of Vijay Mallya
A pair of 170V roadsters were present, giving company to a 190SL. The white car was a new entry.

The second oldest car in attendance, Model T Ford (oldest was1903 Humberette)
A Traction Avant that hasn't been shown before I think, and appeared to be in long term ownership. Though showing age, I particularly loved this car.
An Oldsmobile cabrio not shown before I think.
A couple of Alfas made for a unique sight.
Buick Super cabrio
Regal looking Daimler

A Mini made an appearance, and giving her company were 2 bright blue Morris Minors
This conversion is based on a Maruti Van platform Im told
The mole's Ponton and Fiat
This Morris 8 came from Kolhapur to attend the event
2 out of the 5 MG T series present at the event. The BMW regn would make it an early car, perhaps late 30s.

Some photographs from my side of the lineup as well as the drive and the tulips. The drive was from Horniman circle, Radio Club, Regal, Marinedrive, Haji Ali, BW-SeaLink, U turn from BW-Sealink and then back by taking a U turn after the sealink.

Great pics and real nice cars.
That 47/48 Olds cabrio is a rare car, not many to be seen around anywhere these days. It must be a straight eight ?
Any further info on this car or interior / engine pics ?

Wow, good to see the rally taken place at long last!! One must admire the patience of the owners to have made it despite the incessant delay! This shows true enthusiasm!
Good to see more series 1 Lambrettas turning up! The yellow BMF one had last time as well. The red and white seems a first-timer.
