Participants will make their way to the finish line on a set route. On the way, the cars and bikes will be assessed for originality and on-road performance and will be later put on display for visitors. Some of the iconic vintage cars that will be taking part in the rally include a 1930 Studebaker, 1933 Rolls Royce and a 1947 Buick among others.

Interesting nostalgia about the 1967 Statesman Rally.

The article says the Sentinel was built in 1907!

The reference to the Patiala Mercedes from Hitler, probably meant Maybach.

More on the Sentinel in this thread:
