Default Pics: Fiat Classic Car Club India Rally - 15 August 2007

We had a great event this morning, starting at the Agricultural College and ending at the Centre for Police Research, Pashan. The students of the college had put up a lovely show, and NCC cadets marching by added to the flavour. We ended by placing a wreath at the Police memorial.

Around 30 cars turned up, the oldest of which were a 1936 Fiat Arditta, and a 1939 Fiat Ballila. The Ballila is a 7 seater pillarless suicide door body, which is most interesting. Note the 1100R in the background.





A few other classics dropped in to say hello, including this 64 (?) Chevy Impala, A Morris Minor convertible, 1957 Standard 10 and a 54 Desoto Diplomat.











Digambar Yadav was kind enough to drive down this 54 Fiat from Bombay specially for the event, though he missed bringing the dashing red and white 63 model featured elsewhere on the forum.



Moralfibre, shrivz, amey and a couple others did pop in later for a peek, though they moved on to Lavasa I think. Wish I could have joined them.

The next drive the club has planned is a visit to Baramati on the 9th of September.

Cheers
Karl

Wow, lovely pics. Karl!
And we too had an equally fabulous event here at Lumbini Park, Necklace Road by the DECHAA, comprising of a short run along necklace road & U-turning back to the venue, during which I hitched a ride in a LHD 1963(?) Super-select! since I went there without any classic, none of my cars having been ready for this event!
The chief guest was the Minister for Tourism, plus we had a lot of well-known people at the rally like Nitin Dossa of the VCCCI & also a parallel exhibition there by Mr. Amila Pereira, a famous sketch artist from Colombo, SL who sketches any & every vintage/classic car he's known to the minutest detail anyone could hardly think of!
And not to forget mentioning, met a few local bhpians also there including one of our mods.!
Yes of course I took pics. & will be uploading them shortly as I'm a bit tired now plus imageshack really needs a lot of patience/time to deal with!
So.....just hold on a while!

Ok will try posting a few each post....couldnt post all in one single post considering there are atleast 50 pics. I have (would've had more if my camera had a memory card!)
No luck yet! I wonder if I could ever post thru imageshack!

We had a rally on the occasion of 60 years of Independence. Although I wasn't present there for the flag off here are pictures clicked at the destination. Our in house expert Karlosdeville should post a report:

Great pics Kiran, especially of the confused Morris who thought it was a Fiat
Just kidding. Lovely cars all, and some very well kept examples like our own Fiatwalle's President and the 57 Dukkar owned by another friend. Report please. In the meanwhile will wait for more pics and a full report from Karl.

There was a DeSoto and the Tempo but ran away as soon as I reached the location. Guess they got over their confusion.

Heh! Now what kind of post is this man? Sounds more like you wrote a letter to stanher and then instead of posting it in the mailbox posted it here by mistake.
