An interesting photo from my maternal Grandfather's family (Nilambur Kovilakom). I have heard him say that the Head of the family bought a new Ford every year. This one looks pretty beat up though :(

Grandfather's 1948 Wolseley Eight is now in the Geedee Museum, Coimbatore. The registration is not authentic though.

Nilambur (Malabar) belonged to the then Madras Presidency.
Back in 1991 or so, I have seen one MG TC (or TA/TB) which once belonged to Nilambur Kovilakam with a car collector in Thrissur who had around 10 or 12 cars. I remember him saying that the stepney wheel of the car was with a Kovilakam family member in Bangalore and he went there to get it.
