Vintage car rally held in Goa

Vintage Car Rally 2015 (22)

Vintage cars are slowly becoming a rare sight on the streets today, with modern cars available at affordable prices packed with punchy engines and latest technology.  Gone are the days when all we could see were the Ambys and Fiat’s ruling the streets and other rare beuties which are now known as classics or vintages.

Maintaining these machines are no child’s play and require lot of hard work to keep these beauties shinny and running. Many a time these vehicles are either being restored or resting in the garage comfortably.
