Bengaluru loves its vintage cars and rallies have been organised in the city many times. The cars stir up memories, both personal and historic and bring back the nostalgia for a time when design was not something created by a cookie cutter. Designer Rupali Prakash is extremely passionate about cars, having grown up around many vintage beauties. Her childhood was filled with adventures as she travelled in these cars and they remain to her, more than just automobiles.

All of them reflect a particular era and stories of a time gone by. Merging her love for classic cars and bikes and her design smarts, she started an online portal called, Classic Chase. This space is dedicated to those who share the same passion and enthusiasm for all things vintage. The brand offers products ranging from clothes, cushion covers, accessories to posters that capture the quirky charm of classic vehicles.

You can see some of the products at and Facebook @ Classic Chase. Her creations are inspired among other things, by the 1886 Benz Patent Motorwagen, which was the first gasoline powered vehicle. And also by the 1915 T Ford, which was the first car to be mass produced, the 1930 Rolls Royce, one of the most regal brand of cars and the 1961 Jaguar EType, the most beautifully sculpted car till date.
