1. The Anniversary Meet was fabulous. Keep it that way SIMPLE and without any other guests/chief guests who are not interested in Fiats.

2. Lets not commercialize the Club by taking Formal Fees and Membership levels etc.

3. Share the expenses among all the members. Why only you guys burn the pockets! Let it be a non profit club just for true Fiat enthusiasts.

4. Interact with the members whenever you are free and not only during Club Meets.

5. Invite the family too of FCB members and make the event a Full fledged family event.
My Reply to your suggestions:

1. Thank you. We have never had any chief guest till date. But we intend to invite Mrs. Sudha Murthy and Mr. Narayana Murthy(Infosys) for our next Rally/Meet as they own a Padmini and are Fiat lovers.

2. We will NEVER commercialize the Club. We don't charge any fees like Annual/ quarterly etc. All Fiat owners in Bangalore are lifetime members of FCB by default.

3.We just share the costs equally among all the members as and when needed, without any profit to anybody.

4. Yes, point noted. We will try to speak to members during weekend and ask them if any help needed in keeping their Fiat in top condition.

5. Yes. We were concentrating only on members. We will arrange our meets better and Invite the family members too of FCB members.

Yeah Karthik. Even I hate all Formalities like membership fee etc.

We are doing a good job by keeping the spirits of Fiats high and lets continue to do so. We should pat on our backs!

FCB Boys:

Thanks for clearing my doubts.

Sorry, I wasn't properly informed of FCB. I was thinking membership is with fee only and I thought rallys were races and included only members.
I did not know the history of FCB and didn't know about FCB founders as I heard about the club from some friend.

I have not attended any of FCB's meets. I own a 1988 Padmini which is in my hometown.

Hope to see you guys soon. Way to go FCB! I am proud of you members who made the Club what it is today.

Hey Karthik. FiatMyLife is a new member and didn't know anything about our Club. He is not anonymous and I have spoken to him. I have explained him everything and cleared his doubts.

Now he is a proud FCB member.

FCK is Fiat 1100 Club - Kangayam (TN).

I wish someone in Kerala starts a Club for Classic Fiats.

It seems the demand for S1 is increasing. Had to be vigilant from now on.

thanks arun,
I will have to look in kerala itself because here the cost of ordinary deluxe be padminis is only 15 to 20 thosand.
So S1 having aircon may command around 30 to 35.
There is one family who had huge fleet of padminis of various years all having the same number 678

FCB has got a new member!

A Blue 1964 Super Select, in super mint condition. Owned by Mr. Srinivas of Jeep Thrills. OTR guys will know him well. Recent Bangalore OTR where BD Sir too was present was held in Mr. Srinivas's Land.

He has kept the Fiat very well as he is a Mechanical Engineer. He has promised to help us in our future restoration projects. He stays very close to Karthik Makam's house.
