Horniman Circle is bang opposite the Central Library, a stone's throw from Flora Fountain.

Anyone know the route being taken ? If one can't make it to the flag off, standing somewhere along the route may be some consolation !

This month's last 2 weeks seems to be loaded with loads of fun, especially on Sundays.
First a Supercar Rally on 23rd Jan. 2011 i.e. last Sunday which is a lot of fun, chasing some monsters on their way & then VCCCI's 2011 Vintage Car & Motorcycle Fiesta on 30th Jan. 2011 i.e. this Sunday.
Hope we all will have a yet another cheerful & enjoyable Sunday with all these Vintage beauties.
BTW, does anyone knowing which vintage cars & bikes are participating ???

The VCCCI rally is actually happening on the 30th of January, in the cool season. See what a little bit of coaxing and competition can do. This will be at Horniman circle, near Mumbai Samachar, walk from Flora Fountain past Akbarallis towards the asiatic library.
The judging will be on Saturday 29th January at Kala Ghoda from 11.00 AM to 17.00 PM. This was informed today in the evening.

At the time of the WIAA get together in memory of Mr. Pranlal Bhogilal, there was also an informal meet of vintage car enthusiasts where I was present. Various suggestions were given, some accepted, some to be discussed / implemented in future, and others not practical.

It was suggested to do away with prizes, both for restoration and for the tulip chart drive. It would be nicer to give every participant a memento. The reason is that on the face of it it appears that the judging is not
seriously carried out, many people are unhappy, and from my experience I know that the tulip chart drive evaluation is a joke. And in the last event one of the judges commented that he need not judge a particular car as he had himself restored it. At that time it was accepted not to give prizes the drive, but the judge had already been committed to, his hotel accomodation booked, (Shalimar?) and so abolishion of prizes for judging of cars can be considered for the next event. The main reason why many did not wish to have judging is not because the judges do make mistakes, that happened even at the Cartier show, but mainly because it was
felt that many entrants get prizes because they have to get it, it is only a formality to select which prize is to be given and to whom. Another aspect is that many cars are entered, are judged, and then do not complete the run. This is grossly unfair. Just to increase the number of entries many cars are present which immediately take a U turn after being flagged off.

Another suggestion was to charge for every individual separately for the dinner. So diners can be any number, not restricted to two per car. VCCCI finds that the costs are high, some people are not paying, and so the quality suffers. Paying entry fees is often a cat and mouse game enforced selectively.
A suggestion by some members was that cars should be put up for display. This was not possible because of costs. Now when judging is on at Kala Ghoda some cars will be seen in public. A very good idea to have this here. This is an important part to promote vintage car movement, which VCCCI is trying to do.

The major aim of this rally is to have a maximum number of participants, irrespective of the quality. We hope that this time there will be no rusting Mercedes 123's and 116 without headlight surrounds, only vintage cars and classics, and selected non classics.

Unfortunately I will not be in town to attend the event, an uncle passed on 11 days ago, but some of my cars will be there for the benefit of enthusiasts and my friends who will drive them, and will be there to enjoy the day. I will also miss the dinner which will be presumably in CCI.

Cheers to the movement and looking for all enthusiasts to have fun.

Cheers harit

No, buddy ! I'm a bit un-well, and may not make it even as a spectator .
But I'll ensure I stand along the route somewhere close to home, and cheer the beauties as they glide along..

I spent a li'l time today in an Oldsmobile that was being prepared for the drive tomorrow. Gosh, what a car! Sheer character...and the seats were like large sofas. Get this, the glovebox lid was home to a clock!!

Good luck with the event to all of you who are participating. And do come back with some lovely pictures. Thanks

Default Congratulations! "the President"

Hearty congratulations to our beloved Rony Vesuna AKA President for winning in the newly introduced category " Indian Heritage Class" reserved for Fiats, Standard Heralds and Hindustans. We were starting to get threatening to the other classics right guys?

Among other Bhpians Bulldogji won a couple of prizes too.
