Yesterday (Sunday 21st March 2010), I got chance to be a part of Vintage car and bike rally. This was organized by Heritage Vehicle Owner’s Club of Thane (http://www.hvoct.com/). I do not own any vintage car or bike but may be as a special spectator I got pretty long drive in one of the vintage car. That car was exceptionally well maintained Standard Herald Mark III. For me it was dream come true to get a ride in vintage car. Earlier I was under an impression that only the Parsis or the Kings/ Prince of some states own such cars. But when I saw the rally I was delighted to see that many other people actually own these vehicles.
I also got opportunity to see Morris Minor 1950, Fiat Millicento 1956, Standard Herald 2 door and the most adorable Austin 1929.
I am not fond of bikes / two wheelers but I think after seeing some of these beautiful and magnificent two wheelers in the rally; I am going to be the fan of those. Yesterday I think for the first time I saw; Lambretta, Vespa, Rajdoot GTS (Bobby), Lamby Polo, Honda 250N Super Dream, Java and Yezdi.
