As we pay homage to Mahatma Gandhi on his 150th birth anniversary, here are few pictures of him with cars he used, most of these have been shared before.

Lady Minto at the inauguration of the ladies club, Bhopal, early 1900's.

The club was housed at Ali manzil, unfortunately the building doesn't exist anymore.

Nice seeing these for the first time. Wondering if these were before the Swadeshi movement...

My grandfather had a 1938 Opel Kadett convertible and a 1945 Packard saloon, a Triumph bike. He was one of the few doctors in the Raigad district back then, and extensively toured Konkan in those cars, often driving himself late nights ( we had a chauffeur but he was , let’s say, less adventurous ). It must have been quite the experience!

Have you tried looking for pictures ? Please do share if you find any.

Meanwhile here is a street view, most likely from Calcutta

In fact a couple of years ago my cousin had shared pictures of the Kadett and the bike I need to check some archives. I will surely post once I get them.

A most valuable and lovely photo of an unlicensed Chrysler Windsor Convertible followed by an equally valuable and lovely Plymouth Cranbrook Convertible. I'm thinking the third auto is a General Motors product. Thank you for the moment of remembering. Those were my teenage years and cars were all important.
