If one wants to experience the oldest running Benz from 1914 in the country, the 4th Annual Vintage Car and Bike Show at the Fortune Pandiyan Hotel is the place to visit on August 15th.

“The show organized by the Pandyan Arts Community and Environment (PACE) would be a treat for all Maduraiites,” said G. Vasudevan, general manager of the hotel, on Saturday.

“The show will bring vintage car enthusiasts from across the state together under one roof and showcase the vast collection of vintage cars from southern Tamil Nadu,” said S. Rajan, General Manager of the hotel.

Interestingly, the oldest car on display is a 1934 Austin 7, which will be driven from Kodaikanal to the site. Likewise, about 20 vintage two-wheelers from Tiruchi and a VW camper van from Chennai will reach Madurai by road, he added.
