The much awaited Auto Expo 2010, is not only about concept cars and the latest technology in automobiles, at least that is what the Heritage Motor Club of India is out to ensure! This year, the HMCI Pavilion, spread over 22,000 sq. ft. of covered area, and located near the main entry at Gate 2 (Bhairon Marg), will display over 75 Vintage & Classic Automobiles.
KTS Tulsi, President HMCI, stated "We are the only classic auto club that has participated in each of the past four Auto Expos of 2002, 2004, 2006 and 2008. This year too we will showcase the best restored thoroughbred classics including some rare, exotic, iconic and popular models of classic automobiles from 1920-1970 in order to create greater understanding and appreciation of our passion."
Curiosity over how auto-engineering has evolved over a century attracts several motor car enthusiasts to the HMCI stall. Visitors to the pavilion can look forward to seeing yesteryear beauties such as Buick Series 90L, Jaguar XK120, Mercedes 180 Pontoon and a Mustang 1966.
According to Diljeet Titus, General Secretary, HMCI, one of the primary objectives of the show is to provide a perspective of how automobile engineering has evolved over the years. This year the number of participants has increased to 75 from the first year’s 65.
Seems fitting that there is a wonderful mix of old and new at the 2010 Auto Expo, the tenth Expo in India!
