The Car Doc: He brings vintage cars back to life

Raviprakash, a medical doctor, has a special love for vintage cars and bikes, and is the proud owner of a huge collection at his farm house in Rajarajeshwari Nagar.

 
A Lanchester owned by Motilal Nehru, a Rolls Royce owned by Tamil actor-politician MG Ramachandran, a Studebaker owned by celebrated Kannada poet Kuvempu and cars once owned by the royal families of India are part of his collection.
 
He buys the cars, mostly beat-up, and then works on them at his workshop. Tinkering, painting, upholstering, and work on the engine is done under one roof.
 
Ravi’s family is equally enthusiastic about his collection and considers the automobiles part of the family. A group of mechanics, as dedicated as Ravi, work at the garage and maintain the cars and motorbikes.
 
Ravi’s cars are regulars at events in and around Bengaluru. He also maintains vehicles abroad to participate in overseas events. He intends to start a vintage car and bike museum in Bengaluru, which he says is going to be the largest automotive museum in the country.
