Default greetings from Fiat fanatic in Pune...again!

Hello all...

ahem...there were issues with my previous user ID, so ive re registered and am now nazi free...please get in touch with me on this new id...thanks...

this is Karl from Pune, caretaker of a 1960 Standard 10, 1960 Fiat 1100, 1973 Premier President, (all above have been in my (parsee!) family from day one, all are low milage and sport factory interiors!). Most recent acquisitions include a 56 VW Beetle (oval rear window + RHD...Rare!) and a Triumph Tiger bike...scouting around for a nice lambretta...

Been a car fanatic all of my 20 years, my first word was "mercedes", (not surprising since i like to think i was named after Herr Benz...)

Anybody here with ANY old fiat or premier, drop me a line, im involved with the Fiat Classic Car Club of India (www.fiatclub.8k.com)

So anyone out there owns or is interested in old Standards like the herald and 10? Im crazy bout them...
for that matter any vintage car and bike entusiasts in pune get in touch...

am into standard motors in a big way (am the indian correspondent for the Standard Motor Club in the UK). check out these articles written by me at the Standard Motor Club...



also check out this article that was recently published in the local paper...

Welcome Karl

Nice articles by you. We have some Fiat 1100 fanatics on the forum and they are all in Pune. Ram and TeamFIAT I believe.

Welcome Karlos,
I am also an ardent fan of the standard motors. felt cheated when they had to shut down their operations. would love to discuss these things sometime.
