Ideally, yes, head quarters should have some stuff. Who knows what though. You can be sure there is plenty of support/literature/records on Topolinos, later 500s, 600s and others that sold in larger numbers. These were cult cars the world over. The humble 1100 is overwhelmingly popular only here. Much like Lada 124s in East Europe

Internationally millecento.it is doing good things.

Karl : Can you post the link of the videos.

Also when are you Mumbai/Pune Fiatians Launching the Book on "Fiats in India"?? I read in some other thread long back about it.

P.S: Here are some pics of FCB's newest Fiat 1100!! Mr. Tirumal owns this very neat Fiat 1100 Super Select. He was introduced to us by Jatin. Arun1100 and me had been to his house few days back. More pics Arun will post.

I have the CDs somewhere, will upload it sometime.

Someday when the book is launched we will send you a copy. BTW the car pictured above is a Select, not Super.

Mechanics and their eccentricity's... Thanks for the update funkykar, will wait it out...

Today's Meet was organised just for NEW members. But we were happy to see many old members too joining us!!

Arun had a nice drive in Mr. Dev's Gray Select. He drove the Select from Mr. Dev's house as Devji was unwell to drive today. I am sure he enjoyed the drive of total 40 kms!!!

Good pictures funkykar,
Nice to see beautiful fiats adding into the fleet of FCB. Grey select is superb. I like Parichay's glittering pure silver color also.

Thanks NVKji. I will post detail pics of all cars shortly. Also more info about the owner of Gray Select.

The most stunning Padmini was Mr. Venkatesh's white Padmini.
