Nostalgic automotive pictures including our family's cars-20201114_191348.jpg

That's my grandfather's gorgeous Fiat 3 decades ago. It was very well maintained - even at that age I knew because there was a huge difference in a similar model/car that my father owned - the difference was so much that even we kids could easily figure it out

Unfortunately he sold it in the 90s as he stopped driving due to age.

Edit: back then a key accessory that was *imp* to us kids was having a fan attached in the car. Having an AC never made the list coz there would be numerous reasons (as told to us) for which the AC would be switched off. But the fan was always running!

Nice! I presume it was in Madras/TN going by the number. Any idea what model year the car was?

This is should be a Opel, probably 1935



Mr. Bhupinder Singh, former DGP West Bengal, has been kind enough to share this picture taken in circa 1939.

His grandfather Sardar Ajit Singh Kalha and mother Jaswant Kaur, as a small child in front of their 1936 Buick. The picture was registered in District Sheikhupura, Punjab

Many thanks to Mr. Bhupinder Singh

This car's registration district is Madurai in Tamilnadu and probably late 80's model if I am not mistaken.

Interesting. He had a Herald earlier and bought this second hand before my brother was born so definitely he owned it from early/mid 80's (not sure when). Have asked to see if we have any records/details.
