Kia Ora John and welcome to the forum. You really have a nice collection of wheels there. Hope your cars are safe from Keas.

Enjoy your stay.

Cheers,
Rajan

And check this thread.
Thanks Moralfibre. The one in Hyderabad seems well used, esp regarding the interior... but, being French, the interiors didn't wear very well!

There are quite a few Ds in NZ and they come up for sale from time to time. There is/was quite a nice D Special for sale recently at a Clasic Car specialist here in Christchurch for about NZ$22,500, imported new to NZ and right hand drive.

All the best, John.

Thanks Rajan... I never take the cars anywhere near any keas... or I stand over the cars if I do! Those birds will wreck anything! All the best, John.

Thanks Mpower... I suspect some parts are not original as it was kept as a "well loved" car rather than as a classic. At this stage I'm not too bothered about the fine detail as I'll be enjoying it with the family. Once they lose interest, I'll probably start getting a bit more picky! The thing below the parking light is a reflector, not sure why it's been added... The interior is tidy and mostly original, in a well loved way. It has six seatbelts so I'm legally allowed to take the whole family (four kids) which means that everyone is happy!

I got it for old times sakes as I remember them on the roads in Italy when I was growing up... usually loaded to the max and pushed to the max too!

All the best, John.

We have formed a common Fiat owners club called FCCCI - (Fiat Classic Car Club of India) and we do have FIAT club meets and rallies in different places here from time to time.

Do stay in touch with us and lets share our FIAT experiences together.

Cheers,

a.k.a. as President on the forum
Thank you very much Rony - or Mr President! - that is excellent. I'll relay your kind message to the guys at MILLECENTO FIAT che passione
Thanks again, John.

Karl - can you post the pictures again please?
Thanks Iraghava... Personalised numbers are not hard to get here, although many of the better combinations have probably been sold by now. The 1F1AT came with the car - lucky! - as did the DS01. I also have HENRI4 (ie Henry Ford) on the Fold Falcon and OLDPOM on the Rover! Until recently I also had a Series Three Land Rover with LRO1 (as in Land Rover Owner Int'l mag!) People also advertise their businesses through personalised plates... All the best, John.
