Don't you have to own a car to be a part of the drive? We can surely hover around and click pics.

350Z, any information on when the drive will start? I have got my classes at 7 in the morning will run upto 12 o' clock. Can't assure anything but if I get time expect a TAI version of the drive. [;)]

I never used to have much interest for classic cars. Eventually now they have themself made a place in my heart. Nice to see such Vintage car drivers are being organized throughout India. It's a great way to collect enthusiasts and owners alike. Grandeur, Golden opportunity for you: Cars + Photography = :smile:

I wish; I could reach little earlier at the starting point. All I could click are the plain car pictures while they were flagged off.

However, whatever chance and time I got I tried to utilized it to the max. I hope you guys will like the set of pictures.



































Thanks!

Thanks Akash for your kind words. It really motivates [;)]. I had earlier planned to visit Khandala along with the vintage cars (since I had the invitation), but something very important came up and I had to leave just after the flag off event. I still have no clue which all cars won...but will surely update once I have the info.

Nice job Grandeur, We've become fan of pictures you snap. Keep them coming.
Vintage and Classics are beauty of their own, We'll get to see their paintings and cars itself at auto expo by Heritage Motoring Club of India.
