Default It's me Manish

Finally was able to start a new thread . been there for a while on team bhp.

Fascinated to Automobiles from a toddler age, its no surprise I started reading things automotive @ an age of 10. And further to every ones amazement went on to bo Bachelor's in Automobile plus Masters in progression. In all the years have done many odd jobs (had my own Car workshop, was into LPG conversions, was a mechanic @ JCB Earthmoving equip dealer, Design Engineer @ Kirloskar) to Find my way in Caterpillar taking care of the Application engineering for Engines and generators.

As a true blue enthusiast, I eat, sleep, walk and talk CARS. Once upon a time I was chasing to be employed by Manvendra Singh and later to be at Dilip Chhabadia to learn the tricks of trade.

Came to Know Team BHP by google and now it has become menace in my home and work. I love every moment of being its member.

I had an all original 1959 Fiat 1100, scrapped for 8000 bucks, still regret and get goosebumps remembering the incidence.

Now I have again become a prowd owner of 1960 Fiat 1100.

At present apart from work and Team BHP I am working on some engine concepts and a sports car on the lines of catheram 7 / morgan. but these are long way to go.

So much for the introduction, i thank all the members for the brotherhood they share.

Bye and happy motoring.

Better late than never, eh Manish? Nice intro.
Do share some info about the cars you are working on, if it isn't proprietary yet.

Got it from my uncle for free on condition that I will restore her to previous glory. Very soon she will undergo a full blown restoration.

Hi Manish,

Nice intro, and I am sure the restoration of Fiat will attract lot of interest.
I for one see a neighbor have a mechanic spoil his Fiat with everyday changes. He loads the engine with LPG and the poor engine cries its heart out everyday. I hope your restoration tips will be of help to the neighbor of mine.

Cheers!
