I too am waiting for pictures. I understand that a foreign Mercedes 190SL made an appearance, car appears to be new in this country.
DGK was supposed to have been there, can you add info to this Merc? Came from Australia? I also heard that your Chevy did not make an appearance?

Cheers harit

Correction, DKG and the Chevy were there, DKG's boss drove the Chevy.
The 190SL was indeed there, on foreign number plates, and the car was actually quite shabby. Maybe came to India for restoration?
Can the Chennai members please post pictures?

Cheers harit

Dear Harit,

My Dad was in Chennai on an invitation of a local collector. I have some pictures of the 190SL and will post late in the evening. My Dad was also saying that it was quite shabby.

Cheers
