mbz180 and Bella arrived in Bangalore to be part of the FHVI Mysore Rally. They stayed with us. After the Mysore Rally, he and his group will be driving back to Kolkata for the Pujo


Prithvi washing the car and detailing it for the drive. mbz180's detailing was too tiring for me, so I went to bed at 11 pm and washing continued till 1 am in the night ! sgchoudhury and my Dad kept him company!

While the washing was going on, my wife did a quick water colour, as a remembrance gift, of their stay with us

The watercolour sketch looks lovely. Prithvi please share details of your road trip to Bangalore fro Kolkata. What route you took? etc. I think cross participation across states is the next step for this movement in India.

It's been a while since I've posted anything on my darling Bella, so I thought I'd share some moments. She's been an absolute joy; she didn't break a sweat from Mysore to Calcutta! These pics are from Bangalore, Mysore, Andhra, Orissa & Bengal.

Enjoy & feel free to ask any questions.

Regards,

mbz180

PS: She got the Runner's Up award for best restored car in her class at the 2020 Kolkata Statesman

Dear mbz180,

Fantastic restoration job!!! Lots of detail and so much hard work. Congratulations on the winning at the Calcutta Statesman.

My friend has a 1964 Super Select and its Solex Carburetor conked out and he had lost all hope of running it again. But after reading this thread we found hope indeed.

Could you help us point to contacts/dealers to source a Weber Carburetor and if possible its manifold? Looking further we also think the Ignition Coil is reaching its end of life and it may need replacing.

Here's some of her pictures...

Hi, sorry for the late reply and thank you for the kind words. The SS looks very nice and I'm sure she'll be running well again soon. Send me a pm please and I'll try to help.
