India lifts ban on vintage cars


Smoggy India has declared war on old cars, so much so that in late 2014 the country banned any vehicle older than 15 years from its capital, New Delhi. Now, the ban by India’s powerful National Green Tribunal (NGT), a sort of environmental court that handles disputes in Indian eco issues, has been tweaked slightly, with collector car owners and enthusiasts getting a reprieve. On December 18, the NGT announced that vintage cars will be allowed on roads for “rallies, exhibitions, and maintenance.”

When i read the headline I thought it was going to talk about lifting of the “export” ban on vintage cars. That would be a gold rush if that happened.
