Take a look.
Ive seen a number of these running around the outskirts of Hyd. here.....used as taxis although painted white....

Anyways, lovely roundup of cars & a nice narration! Keep it up guys!

Blackpearl- are you coming down to Hyd. for this 26th as well?

Man I missed it....I had put on a alarm to wake me up..But probably it was not enough to wake up "Kumbh karna"..The biggest mistake was I should have asked BP to give me a wake up call. I am feeling so bad that I missed it. Not only the oldies but also the LR....please organise something on Sunday morning...

Nice nice. Looks like you guys had a blast. Missed out, lekin kya kare, had some other engagements.
More than the vintage cars, I am unhappy having missed seeing Neil's beast in action. Would have loved to have a crack at it! Chalo, there's always a next time!

Great stuff. That 38 Caddy looks wicked! Did anyone get any pics of the massive red pre WW1 Standard thats a regular feature?

That Landie looks very familiar, methinks it used to belong to my neighbour in Pune till a couple of years back...was a dull blue earlier. Am I right?

Toiingg bahi, didn't you click any pics of the Messerschmitt?
@ Karlosdeville - Could you please identify all the cars in the pics? Most didn't have proper identification.
