The Jaipur vintage car show sees machines from all across the country and is a pleasant sight for people of all ages. What else can be a better place to hold an exhibition than the UNESCO World Heritage City of Jaipur?

This year the event was held at Jal Mahal Palace, the former residence of the Jaipur royals which is now a hotel run by the most prestigious hospitality brand Taj. Well, I know words can’t do much justice to the feeling of the event and I have got some pictures of these classic vintage cars which were ones driven by the Maharajas of India.

These classic pieces of collectibles are preserved in their pristine form and most of them are in running condition. It’s also, true India was once a wealthy country and most of these are the memories of the glorious past, preserved carefully by their owners and car collectors.

The Ford from 1913 was one of the oldest cars in the event almost a century old car, it is restored to almost new condition and one can’t get their eyes off this masterpiece. Well, I believe any part if damaged has to be custom-made by craftsmen with precision in their hands, to keep this beauty up and running.
