JAI FIAT S.p.A
But now your family owns both the cars i.e. A fiat 1100 and a Punto. Must be a joyous moment for you seeing both the beauties parked together.

SO finally you paid the amount and transferred the papers. Don't worry your parents will come to know of your doings very shortly. Invest some more time and money on her to get my above statement corrected.

Thank god, i am lucky in this matter. My parents supported me in restoring my old car. but god is wise. he took my 1992 model padmini. i didn't give up, i bought another padmini with great difficulty. till people know we have a club and they see us in media, i had a hard time explaining why i like fiat. from neighbor to relatives, friends, family friends, everyone told that i am a mad that i bought an old car.

I got THE BOLD(Fiat 1100), THE BEAUTIFUL(PUNTO), & THE UGLY(SANTRO) !

I don't really mean the last one, I respect Santro a lot. Appreciate the Korean for it.

Wow! Amazing pictures of our 331 Arun. If not for the tournament that I had to go for, my S1 too would have tagged along. I am very pleased to see her with you.

Great pics of the super select too. I missed meeting it! I will catch up next time around.

MMK is as usual a great icon for all of us. We need to learn from him on how to enjoy life to the fullest possible.

I want a photo shoot of as many FCB cars as possible in a good scenic location. Let the monsoon start in, we can go to some hill station then.

Today I had been to MMK's house. He had requested some pics of him with his car. I gave 5 A3 size prints in 250gsm paper of his cars pics. Also gave him a pic of we guys partying with him along with Mallya's products during October Fest.

Also wrote "To Mr.MMK from FCB" on all the pics. I first time saw him being so emotional, after he saw the prints!

Monsoon or not, I ready to drive my S1 anywhere anytime. Do plan. I suggest GopalaSwamyBetta

Regarding MMK, I can imagine what the scene would have been like. We are more or less his best buddies. His passion for Fiats and FCB is never ending. I still couldnt catch up with his due to my busy schedule. Lets meet him again over the weekend

Thanks Ram!

Time for next FCB meet!

Guys! I was thinking of a FCB Cricket tournament! Karthik Makam being a renowned cricket player, with his guidance we have have a One day Cricket tournament only for the members of FCB. Hows the idea?!

The purpose is to get all the FCB members together and get tanned under the sun. Just kidding.

But a tournament like this will be a nice change against the usual meets. So, it can be a Meet and Cricket together!

Firstly, I no big cricketer. I am a sloppy fielder, batsman and bowler. My passion towards cricket is unlimited.

Yes, I would be happy to play cricket with FCBians. If many are interested, we can identify some ground to play cricket that should have ample space to park Fiats too

FCB is go any time! Mumbai has to plan up as the monsoons are generally a bit harsher there. I hope Beharam sir comes up with some date which would be suitable for all clubs.
