The Maharana's collection of Old-timers


The famous Cadillac emblem 

An old-timers collection in India 
The Maharanas of Udaipur have had the good idea to keep their cars over the years and have recently opened a small but interesting collection of old-timers. The vehicles of three generations of Maharanas consist of American, German and British cars. We saw the following : Buick, Rolls Royce, Vauxhall, Mercedes-Benz, Chevrolet, Opel, MG, Austin, Ford...  Some humble cars as well as Rolls Royces modified for hunting or to move around the Udaipur polo team ! Nearly all where in original condition.
