The annual rally began at The Statesman House in Connaught Place and culminated at National Stadium where a prize distribution ceremony was held in the evening for the car lovers. The afficianados were also treated to melodious tunes dished out by a BSF band. 

From a 1938 Buick limousine, Cadillacs, Rolls Royces, Dodges, Jaguars, Chevrolet Impalas, a black Baby Austin of 1918, and VolksWagen Beetle — the machines of the bygone ear that participated in the rally had not lost their past sheen and left the passerby’s captivated all along the route.

On Saturday, Modern School, Barakhamba road, played host to the prejudging ceremony where around 18 vintage and classic cars went through an inspection in order to finally take part in the Statesman Rally.
