yeah that is it

The exhibition here in pondicherry beach had around 40 cars.

The best one was mustang. Maintained at showroom condition, new seats and etc.

I was shocked to see one of my uncle as participant there. He had come with there old fiat.

And about my fav , mustang , he showed the owner and he was a wealthy rich man. Hope so he owned a s80 too and came in that.

cars started at 9 in chennai and reach pondy by 2. All came in a rally , so the most oldest ones cannot do more than 40kmph.

Few cars were badly maintained. some were maintained at mint condition.
I was taking pictures , suddenly all these idiotic ministers and cm came and public were made to stay away. then they announced the inauguration , just 4 more cars were left for me to take pictures. That were covered by surendar. he started from one end and i started from another end. His phone battery died making impossible to take some at the last , which i covered.
Dont worry guys, all pics are covered for TAI.
