The Vintage and Classic Car Club of India (VCCCI) is organising the annual VCCCI Vintage Car and Motor Cycle Fiesta in Mumbai on February 17.

As this prestigious event's popularity increases with every passing year, entries are expected from all over India for this year's edition including rare cars from 1900 to 2013. Once again, this year's rally will showcase some of the country's most important and exceptional cars that have not been seen in any Indian rally till date, making it a legendary event that draws great enthusiasm from participants and spectators.

Cars from the stable of media baron Viveck Goenka, whose 1929 Mercedes Noomburg won the Vintage honours last year, include the 1933 Studebaker, 1947 Chevrolet and 1967 Pontiac. Vintage veterans Fali Dhondy and Hemant Ruia, whose  1947 Rolls Royce Wraith was the Classic winner, among others, will also feature in the competition.
