Gearing up for the G20 Summit, the Delhi government will organise a vintage show for cars and motorcyles on February 26. Nearly 50 vintage cars, including a 1928 Rolls Royce Phantom I, and more than 20 classic motorcycles will be put on display at the event.
Under the banner, “Vintage for Life — The G20 Vintage Vehicles Drive”, the event will be flagged off by Lieutenant Governor V K Saxena on Sunday from the Major Dhyan Chand National Stadium. It will be hosted in partnership with Delhi government’s Transport Department and the Heritage Motoring Club of India (HMCI).
The 1928 vintage cars include a Rolls Royce Phantom I and a Model A Ford.
The rally seeks to shine a spotlight on the fact that India is chairing the G20 at present, as also to spread the message of restoration of vinatge cars.
At the Vintage Car drive, people will also be able to click selfies with the cars and take photos of the cars from some vantage points.
Using the hashtag ‘VintageforLife’, they can upload the pictures on Instagram and a jury will judge them and they can win i-Pads as prizes.
This is the first of such event being held and next month, the department will be hosting a cycling ride in partnership with the German and Dutch Embassies, PTI reported.
Delhi will host the main summit meeting of the G20 (Group of 20) countries and seven other related events, starting March.
