Wonderful pictures Kiran! Really loved the 356 & the Mako Shark Corvette!

But the pick for me is the Turbo (930, I think) & what an appropriate numberplate!!

Kiran, when did you go to Cal?
Well great going. If possible try to get to Huntington Beach at LA where Chip Foose is based. Im sure he would be delighted to know what a fan following he has in India.
Im sure you have given Karl some wet orgasmic dreams owing to your VW pics.
Where in Cal are you based and when are you getting back? where all are you travelling? You were right about not being able to spot Ferraris, Lambos or Rolls in the US especially in CAlifornia where youd expect them to be. We see more of those in India now a days. And yes more pics, more pics please.

Oh yes there are more bling bling chrome rims everywhere but those look really nice when put on a truck. The biggest I saw were say 23" (I assume) and on some GMC truck. Looked cool. I'll let you know of my LA plans since

I can't go and tell the store guy to give me "many goodies", you've got to give me a list.

The NorCal Bus show will be amazing. You will see such levels of restoration on lowly busses, it will drive you mad! The parking lot will also be full of interesting VWs not taking part in the show. Is there a swapmeet as well?
Yes it is a swap meet as well. You can check out a preview at - BUSFEST.NET. Don't miss MFF 692 Bus that looks to be from India.

Ohh yes sure.

I was driven around in San Jose downtown last night. Being a Saturday night the entire junta was on the road with their loud blaring dub audio systems and bling bling cars. Loud music, raving people, skimpily clad women, Escalade limo's and what not. It was bliss. We were going clubbing hence did not carry the camera. Got sloshed and returned home at 2 am. Next time I will take my camera without fail.

Abbe... abhi toh sudhar jaa Kirru!!
Take your camera with you at all times dude.
Regarding the Bling Bling wheels, didnt you see a lot of black wheels on most cars all of sudden? I too noticed that last year when I was there at almost the same time.

Oh no!
I thought Kiran is posting some pictures he got as some email forward or so and skipped the thread completely. My bad!

Nice pictures buddy. You're good with your camera too. Eh? Would like to see more of bling and muscles. And ofcourse, some skin and tattoos! Cars with all those packed up stuff, nitrous, neons etc...

Now, as everybody is demanding.. We're waiting for the FiAT pictures.

Its been 7 days here now. How difficult would it be to get across to Chip Foose directly?

I am based in Sunnyvale. I will be going to Vegas for a few days on work and then back to Sunnyvale. Miami is on the cards as well but lets see.
My cousin lives in Pasadena which happens to be close to LA(?)

My companies owner has a Ferrari F430 and I hope to get a short passenger ride in it.

No yaar didn't really get sloshed. Went to a nice place called Tied house where they brew you fresh beer. And the scene here is pretty bad. You have to finish dinner by 10 max or else you are left starving. Then hit the bar. San Jose downtown rocks. I wish I had my camera there.

Cyrus, if you wish to see me in a skirt then you must move to SFO very soon. Pack your bags with loads of Purple t-shirts.

Guess that.

Most recommended. Was there for 3 months and it's killerrr! Night scene is smokin' hot but us non-americans are not welcomed in most clubs. I mean they let you in but you'll be stared at throughout the night and not in a good way..

That would be cool. I'll try and drop in if it's ok with you all.

Yeah I figured that out last night itself. I had to show my ID for entry first and then it wasn't as comfortable as it would be in any clubs in home town.

How about a LA meet? I'll try and get Stratos along.

Hehe, MFF 692 would be an English regn plate, not Indian.

It sounds very familiar, I think it is a regular on the bus show circuit.
