Somewhere down the line in History

Somewhere down the line in History

1935 Duesenberg J-585 Speedster 

Car owned ordered by the Holkars

This car was ordered for the Maharaja Holkar of Indore, India, through the Duesenberg dealership in London. The chassis and engine were shipped to London where the body was fitted and then the car was back to Santa Ana, Ca, where the Maharaja had a home. The car was painted in the state colors of Indore with the Maharaja seal on the front fenders. Subsequently, the car was owned by the Sheikh Muktar of Pakistan before it returned to the United States in 1959.

Note the wicker steering wheel and extraordinarily long sweeping fenders. The scale of the car is incredible for a speedster measuring in at over 19 feet. There is also a rumble seat which can be accessed by a fold out step on the side of the car.

Time to fly

Time to fly

Sometimes destiny just lays down the map in front of you and asks you where do you want to go?? but since you were too busy figuring out the details on google maps, wikipedia and lonely planet ………….destiny says; perhaps another day!

I have met hundreds of travelers, globe trotters and one of the most important thing I learned is the fact that it’s not the pictures you took with your digital camera, it’s about how much picture you took with the most powerful camera in the world…your eyes. It’s not how much songs you stored in your Ipod, it’s about how many songs you actually sang. It’s not about how much videos you stored in your hard drive, it’s about how much memories you have in the largest hard drive of the world….your mind.

Now, I had enough of homework….time to start doing the practical myself. Planning the most incredible journey of my life. It’s time, I fly!
