I could see it in his eyes, what he felt for Fiats.

If time would have permitted, he would have driven that NE to the Airport (ha ha ha)

And myself and Arun1100 were talking about Behram sirs view on driving him in a rival product (TATA SAFARI). 2 hours later, as expected, he pops up a question. "WHY A SAFARI" (he he he) we all start laughing on this.
You are right Pavan. When it comes to FIAT Sirji is a mobile encyclopedia.

About the Safari thing, I was expecting Sirji to say "Why a Safari" as soon as we he boarded the SUV

Default Good to see Behram sir on 118NE's steering!!

Very nice photographs and congrates to Bangaloreans to meet one of the great and knowledgable FIAT fan in INDIA. You can see the joy on his face while peeping in the engine bay of the car which he was part of R&D team( may be 20 odd years back) And still his product is running nicely on road. The PAL logo on steering is looking very nice. Hope we FCCH guys will also get a chance to see him in Hyderabad !

Dear all in bangalore - I am replying from my I phone so please excuse any mistakes - I understand your genuine feelings about my knowledge and I feel nice to read so - I would like to say that this is the result of my genuine desire to learn and my good luck that I got to learn from good teachers like mr framroze nariman, mr anil patel and mr shashi mobile. Today I do not see teachers like them, neither do o see students like me. Yes, it is sad but true. I hope good sense prevails and people start teaching and learning again. All the best to all bangalore fiat fans. Best regards, behram dhabhar

Hello Mr. Karthik.
3271 is not a s1 but a 137D car. This car is single owner, driven just 21897 kms.

Hello FCB.

Today I had been to Arun1100's house to have a look at his FIATs.

Here are some pics of 331 after a nice long drive. 331 finally got drenched today after being totally dry for the last few months.

Here are some scoop pics of Arun1100's Economy - 297.
297's DREAM restoration started just yesterday. It will be restored in his house compound itself. I will post more pics if Arun1100 wishes to..

I have sold it at a dirt cheap price. I mean kind off price sold to scrap. Scrap may have got me couple of more thousands, but would have nevere dared that. It was unavoidable for me due to personal reasons that I had to raise money. I hope you understand. I also have a greed to manage some parking space for the possible Palio SDX that may happen. It was a difficule decision. Buy, getting married is more complicated and have to compromise on some stuff

Good thing is, the NE has reached very very safe hands. He is a car collector. Will update more about that later.

We FCB guys and Chethan(NE Club) just returned from a trip in our beloved 331. The trip was part of the Bachelors' Party treat by one and only Karthik Makam!

We all started off from Arun's office at 7am. Then left to Mysore. Reached by 10:30am. Then a drive till Shivanasamudram and Nagarhole! We had a lovely time. 5 guys in a FIAT is just AWESOME! We travelled nearly 400 kms. 331 performed like butter!

Waiting for the next GOA TRIP!

Few pics from my phone of yours truely. Makam will upload the rest of pics.
