Vintage car rally
Hornimann Circle

Film actress Neetu Chandra launched a vintage car rally which took place in Mumbai on Sunday morning. One hundred and fifty one vintage and classic cars took part in the annual rally, which was organised by the Vintage and Classic Car Club of India (VCCI). Cars manufactured pre-1940 (classed as vintage cars), those manufactured between 1941 and 1960, (classed as classic cars) and Bentleys, Rolls Royces, Jaguars manufactured up to 2000 (classed as recent classics), and motorbikes were showcased at the event.

Parvez Damania drove his 1947 Buick Roadmaster, and Mumbai Police Commissioner D. Sivanandhan drove a 1952 Chrysler, through the streets. The oldest car was from 1903. The event was held to mark the 91st anniversary of the Western India Automobile Association. Nitin Dossa, founder of the VCCI, said: “The purpose of the event was to give owners the chance to display their cars and give the general public an opportunity to see them. Many of these cars were originally imported by the Maharajahs from the UK and have since exchanged hands. There are only 1,800 vintage cars in India.”

The most impressive car was a Vijay Mallya-owned 1924 Silver Ghost Rolls –Royce, which won the top prize.

A big deal was made out of Brad Pitt meeting his ex-wife Jennifer Aniston. Do you think it is wrong to keep in touch with your ex?- asked to Neetu Chandra
AI’m sure Brad Pitt knew what he was doing when he went out with another woman, Angelina Jolie. The whole world knows that Jennifer and Brad were married and that they are not together anymore. So there’s nothing wrong in exchanging pleasantries.
