Youngtimers are becoming the toast of the enthusiast community in Mumbai. Shaman Wheels Mumbai and Mercedes-Benz India have taken the lead in initiating an awareness programme as well as an educational forum every month on a Sunday to promote preserving, maintaining and encouraging investing and collecting classics and youngtimers.
While Shaman Youngtimers is largely Mercedes-Benz-focussed, a large audience of enthusiasts who attend these meets own cars from across brands from the 80s and 90s.
Amar Sheth, managing director of Group Shaman, says, "There is an incredible amount of passion that owners of these 'youngtimer' cars have, and we at Shaman Mercedes are happy to support them in getting to know these cars better and help with keeping them going for many years to come."
Youngtimer meets are usually held on the second Sunday of the month and have insightful sessions on various topics, from routine maintenance tips and monsoon readiness to comprehensive workshops on coachwork and paint conducted by industry experts like Nilesh Atale from Mercedes-Benz India.
The next youngtimers' meet is scheduled for July. Stay tuned…
