"Vintage Garage" at RGIT

An event was held at Rajiv Gandhi Institute, Andheri (West). One of the specialities of the event was the "Vintage Garage" which displayed four vintage cars and eight motorcycles. The cars were in much better shape compared to the motorcycles. The motorcycles had no proper logos/paintjob and were partly rusted. The engine of each and every motorcycle is in an appauling state. However, they are all in working condition. The best of the lot was the Dodge Kingsway shown below.

1953 Dodge Kingsway


More photos here!

Hats off to you Karl--You Rule!! yes the upper one was the combi of our car, and was that way till it was sold in 1973[offcourse it was repainted twice,they had severe rusting problems] and in 1972 I had driven her to Nainital with my grandfather cruising at 70/75 miles most of the way!!

That compliment buys you another pic for your viewing pleasure What was the regn of your car originally? Unfortunately both of the above cars were re-registered in the 80s when some silly short lived rule came out requiring cars over a certain age to be regd under a single series.
