Congrats Ram on the buy . The car does look showroom condition especially the engine bay!

The 309 was beautifully made and was supposed to be one of the best sellers in Africa coz of its suspension so no reason why it shouldn't hold up here.

You are motivating us to buy such zara hatke cars.

Many such wonderful cars have landed up in scrapyard because of spares problem.

Read somewhere that Ram is building a multilevel parking complex in Jubilee Hills, to park all his cars.

Absolutely Ram!! I had a UNO petrol she was a flying machine. Amazing Italian beauty people say its boxy but I don't go by that. Trust me guys no car has got that comfort and spacious interior as far I've seen. Front seat gives you a feel of sitting in mom's lap. I had few experiences which could have ended disasterous if it was not a UNO. The best part was the sweet sound which it make while shutting the boot "cling". I really miss her it was a mistake to give her away which I regret till date.

Even I would love to buy a well kept UNO I may be asking too much preferrably a diesel.

I see you have got a gem of a car Ram you are lucky and so the car. I have to meet you Ram inspite of tight schedule, you have got the OBJECT OF DESIRE, CONSURE OF THE EYES. Etc.

Congrats. I have seen this car in my Office parking lot and the owner always drove it with the respect a car deserves.

When it came up for sale, Ram was the first name that sprang to my mind.
Within 2 hours I get a call back from Ram that the deal is finalized.

Congrats, that car is a beauty.

Is that offer :- "I will take your car for free and now you need to treat me for a nice dinner"?

Congrats Ram. Look forward to seeing it in flesh soon.
