We owned a 2003 LX MPFi in Pearl Silver. The most fun I've ever had driving was in that little pocket rocket.
As rightly said by you! these Jellybeans indeed were a sight to sore eyes! What I loved most was how the owners have taken good care of them all throughout their life to make them look so beautiful even today.

Do share some pictures of your Zen!

I'll have to look through family albums the next time I'm home. Will definitely post whatever I can find.

As mentioned by blackwasp, another car that drew a lot of attention was the Powder Blue 1985 Maruti Van. The owner Mr. Vinay Chumble had brought it for the event all the way from Nasik! The Van has been with his family all it's life and has completed over 7 lakh kilometers! Here are a few more pictures of the Van that I took for your viewing pleasure.

The Van was one of the first cars to come! Here is a photo of the Van with a 1999 Maruti 800 DX

This would have made the quintessential 1980s Bombay Marine drive photo if those newer cars had not been there in the back ground
