Oh my god! Steer, this is the fastest car purchase I'm seeing in my life.

So as a middleman I can surely expect a decent single malt. What say?

No way.

You get malts anyway for being Rudra Sen and that is the only reason you will continue receiving them.

Are you kidding? A guy who maintains his car like that wont even take a second look at my poor Landy - I'm well and truly stuck with that one.

Buying. And I'm pushing my luck at home with this one - will probably be the last automotive purchase for a long long time if I want peace at home

Congratulations Steer, welcome to the Fiat Classic Car Club of India

A friend is making the die for the original wheel caps missing on your car, so good news.

Thanks guys but I'm not going to take this car to ANY workshop. I've had my fill of garages thanks to the Landy. I'll take these if they come my way.

Good heavens! Its almost like joining The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. Perhaps the new thread can be named "Steer joins the League of Extraordinary Fiatmen" - now that would raise a few eyebrows!

Think about it - finneyp will claim kinship & dr. pullockaren will actually start liking me! And my signature can also read "Other People Drive Landmasters, I Also Drive a Fiat" - ek din mei Amit jaisi khoob gaadi chalaaongi. Aur karlos jaisi dukkar fiat hi chalaoongi.

I dont think my ageing heart can stand all that.

Holy Moly!!! That's some car Steer. I am actually glad you got it. Don't bother going about changing things on this one. Please keep everything as it is. Have fun with her. Mature Italian ladies are fun I here.

Congrats on the new car Steeroid. So ur garage would soon look like this.
BTW, isnt 150,000 too much for a Dukkar Fiat! I thought a very well maintained goes for around 35-40 max.

I wouldn't expect you to be chalaaongi mein gaadi but rather gaadi chalaoonga unless you recently visited a doctor for some reason.

Damn - you got half a chance and you didnt waste it!

Forgive the wrong use of the language and rest assured that your condition is not infectious/contageous.

Congrats steer,

Now gone will be the days that i drool over this beauty every day.

I'll miss this car everyday i drive to office.

One suggestion, dont do any changes on this car whatsoever, it looks great, runs great. It better stay at your home than any workshop.

Congrats again.

I'd reckon that includes the number as well- better to preserve the old one rather than have it with a modern KL-** **** regn.! BTW Steer, you also have a house (flat?) in B'lore right? In that case you could continue the B'lore regn.?
