Yawsa. So soon? Ok. Lemme see if I can make it as well. My poor Gypsy is still in the garage...

What the heck...as long as I get a chance behind a(ny) steering wheel, I'm happy...

Gerard sir, your Gypsy's pre-94? Got manually "un" lockable hubs? Bring it along, na...

@BUSA; Uploading it on youtube again isn't worth it, yaar. Try playing it with VLC 8.6. It should play without problems. Windows media player (10 or 11) with K-lite mega codecs should work fine as well..... Else, meet up, & I'll give you the full 35 MB video...

Phewwww, Guyz the meet was awsome, though there were only 3 Gypsies 8 Guys (3 member and 5 non member)we had more fun than before because there was some increase in water level, its full of mud.

Neville got stuck in mud and then we found out it was knee deep, we had to push the car.

while coming back we saw some tyer marks on the road and we thought it was a jeep, we asked the chaiwala he said " Saab kuch toyota likha tha uspe" and we thought it has to be sajid (Sajid motorsport) with his toyota LC.
we started washing our cars in the river the the monster came. it was huge and sajid was ripping her on that road like express way.

this time we have not taken any pictures, we have taken few videos from cam phone, will try to upload it 2moro.

Son - The first was a 1991 with freewheeling hubs - the second was a 1998 KING carbureted, to which I fitted the hubs! Got slightly better milage- used the vehicle till 2004! Then SADLY sold it! So

Sadly, couldn't make it this time. Next time, for sure. And I hope everybody else's gonna chug along as well.

@Gerardfdz; Awch. Sawry, sir. Didn't know you had parted ways with your beloved mountain goat. But I'd love that CD for sure. May I?
B.T.W, how's the giraffe?
