Lucknow, Dec 1 (ANI): For car lovers, it was a day out, when vintage and classic beauties rolled down the streets of Lucknow as a part of rally on Monday.
Organized as a part of the 'Lucknow Mahotsav', the rally was sponsored by the state-run Hindustan Petroleum.
Some 70 cars participated in the rally, which included a 1936 Baby Austin, Hindustan, Plymouth CR, Austin Somerset, German Ford and many others.
The organizers said they got an enthusiastic response from the participants and that it is very difficult to keep the vintage and classic alive for so long.
