Default Tiny Little Report

Sadly I couldn't attend the event day of the rally. Instead, dropped down yesterday while the scrutiny was in progress. Mostly it was the regulars that keep coming every year, so didn't want to take photos of them again. Just refer to the report of the previous year's event.

Only 2 new cars really caught my fancy. The first was this 1937 Plymouth coupe

The second was this 1934 Skoda. I'm a sucker for the oddball engineering which went into that age's European brands. For example, note that the wheels on this car have a negative camber at rest. When it is loaded, the wheels straighten

Also, the only suspension front and rear is in the form of an inverted leaf spring.

Car no 5 is a 1918 Crossley. Its owned by the Mittals and maintained by Mukherjee Udyog.

You can find a little discussion about the Mukherjee Udyog cars here:

Thanks predatorwheelz for the info on the Crossley, really a fine car!

The Plymouth restoration is outstanding though I do not like the colour combo too much as I would have preferred a lighter body colour when dual colours are used.

The Skoda is very unique and it is the first time I am seeing such a car.

Cheers
