Is it a vintage car? Or used for daily use? What is the make? How much mileage it gives? In Bangalore city, every year, vintage car rally takes place. Thousands of people watch on the roadside, the passing of these cars, drivers and copassengers dressup in vintage fashion. Do you see any such rallies in your place?

Yeah, my colleague 's father does own one. It's a walkswaggon which is beige in colour. End of last year she drove the car to our office coz her father has travelled over sea. She was asked to drive the car once or twice a week so as to keep the car engine running regulary. The car was well maintained and looks quite pleasant although this car is already about 45 years with him.

45 or 50 years old cars do not look very vintage. People have morris minor, rolls royce, benz of 1920s, 1930's. However the narration what you have given is quite interesting and thanks for the response.

I know these cars are still running in different models. The Premier Padmini cannot be vintage cars.

Wow vintage car rallies take place in Bangalore? I would love to see that. I have seen some vintage car but I forgot what it was and it was old. I meant I saw it long time back. It resembled more like Ambassador. But I would love to see the vintage car rallies.

There is a place called Dharmasthala, 325 kms from Bangalore - a piligrimage place where the head of the Temple Shri. Veerendra Heggade has a museum of Vintage Cars which is seen and appreciated by lot of people.
