Then lets fix a meet.
Though I am not sure whether Kiran has come back or not.I know he has an RC.
We could have had a gala meet with lot more people dropping in.
We can have a get together this weekend at some open secluded stretch of road in pune.

Default My weekly Contribution.

Here's an American Beauty from my collection !
A 1958 Pontiac Bonneville Sport Coupe.
The '58 'ville was one of GMs Golden Jubilee cars and
undoubtedly one of the flashiest of the 1950s cars.
This is a 1:18 Limited Edition by Road Signature.
Please note the real leather seats and the detailed interior.

Sorry. In between a picture of a Merc 540K got picked up from my files.
Mods, can you please delete only the odd picture of the Merc please. Thanks.

WOW!!
Thats a real beauty there.
Loved the Paint scheme on it.

Just wanted to know one thing, is the front grill supposed to be a solid piece of chrome (as shown here) ?

Are you talking about the Bonneville? The front grill is supposed to have a chrome mesh. You can see the mesh. Since it is a model, perhaps the detailing to that extent was not possible, hence the whole grill is one piece mould in chrome colour.
