The 7 Wonders at Eco Park

We had last visited the Eco Park in Rajarhat way back in February 2015. But since then a lot has happened there and on a recent trip to the airport, we saw the newest additions that were the talk of town from the Biswa Banga Sarani. So we decided to revisit the Park. Ofcourse we decided that a weekend would be complete madness, so to enjoy the 7 Wonders a weekday would be more suitable. Guess what? It's nearly as crowded on a weekday too.

Anyway at Rs. 30 after you enter the Eco Park, this section is totally worth it. I'd personally have paid more to get a glimpse of these wonderful creations. So I'm not going to say much more, but let the pictures give you an idea of what you'll see.

That said, it's totally worth a visit in person!

Vintage Car Show 2018 at The Tollygunge Club

So here we are once more at The Tollygunge Club on a cold winter morning to catch some rare beauties to warm our hearts. I try to catch these every year if possible and after my recent trip and the number of cars I've seen on it, one would think I'd give it a miss.

This year's collection had most of the usual cars with an addition of some more to the fray. 

What disappointed though was the limited number of super cars on display. But all that said, it's always a joy to see these wonderful gems still being cared for by their owners and offering us a glimpse into automotive history.

So with that much said, I hope you'll enjoy the pictures of the cars below.
