Spotted this majestic Invicta on our breakfast ride today. The car was parked outside Nana Nani park and the gentleman inside was reading a newspaper (that's what I thought). Spoke to him briefly and he mentioned the brakes had heated up and he was waiting for them to cool down. Mentioned to him about Team-BHP and be said he had been part of some of the vintage drives. Gave him a thumbs up and rode away. Thank you Sir!

Posting on Team-BHP after a long long long hiatus. A few pictures of the classics and vintages from Mumbai clicked over 2017.

Here is my contribution to this thread Being a car enthusiastic Mumbaikar, I love visiting Horniman Circle on Sunday mornings! Since I am also an avid photographer, I have a great time clicking away! Here are some of my photos of the Classic Drive Group meets from 2018.

Lovely pics Beemer. Especially the Lagonda and the Ambassador Mark 4. Beautifully done up in that 2 tone paint job. If I am not mistaken, didnt the Mark 4 have square transparent indicators on the front. Also I think I had seen this car almost a decade ago and it had 2 stars it's bonnet and was painted in off white. May have to dig out my gallery. Can you post some more pics of this car, please?

Thanks for the compliment v12 Yes you're right the Ambassador Mark 4 did get square transparent indicators. The indicators on this car are a retrofit from a newer Amby if I'm not wrong. The car has been repainted the two tone shade recently. It in fact belonged to a friend, you recently sold it to another car enthusiast Here are some more pics of the car since you asked:-

Thank you BeemerBug, just managed to locate the pic I had taken almost a decade ago. When it disappeared from that place - I thought in most probability that the car was scrapped. But then I saw it a few years later in 2014 broken down on the road. Good to see that it did not get scrapped and is in a much better condition

The Bombay Gang, flush with victory at the recent Cartier show, are driving down today from Jaipur.

Amir I am informed , is driving his stunning Rolls, winner of Best In Show.


Perhaps the only Best In Show winner whose owner is not afraid to use the car as she was meant to be.



That's the way to go. Have fun and safe drive.



Hopefully some pictures will be seen here.

For us, who saw this car at Cartier yesterday, what Amir is doing is very remarkable and inspirational. Kasli too has been outstanding in his commitments to the drives.

Keep it up Mumbai Gang, you are an inspiration to the rest of the country.

Cheers
