What would I do with the Nuke reactor baba. Is garib ko 2 lakh ka petrol de do (free), I'll pay 50K max for that gypsy. Although the Padmini is nice and clean, I ain't mad to pay 2 lakhs for it. I'll buy 20 of those in that price! probably 25!

We had sold our 1982 Premier Padmini five years ago for Rs.7000/-. (We started off from Rs.15000/-). My dad wanted to get rid of the car ASAP simply due to lack of space.

SHOOT ME!

So you know the magical land.

What "fat racing tyres"??? These are Apollo Acceleres 165/60 profile on SUV inverted wheels which are ideally for use in SUVs/Jeeps and their likes. They are just looking fat because of the inverted wheels.

i have spotted this car couple of times in my para. The car is usually parked @ Lake View Road near CCD.

The car has a straight pipe with custom end-can (same as Planet's 1st end can), 155/80 radials (boy! they look skinny), an after-market Tacho on dash. the car sounds great

you should have posted it there only. i have seen one fiat (brown IIRC) in Kolkata with a similar rear spoiler.

BTW, why haven't you uploaded a pic of your car in this thread?

@ cyrus - can you PM me your email id? need some help from you.

Really well done fiat in red it is Cyrus and just my thought as it would have been smashing if you had put alloys on it. Nevertheless, it stands out in the crowd.
