What a coincidence 3 fiats in one shot. Seems like FCB promoted locality.The registration no. of fiat pictured second seems short for Karthik MB
The blue car on the left in the first pic seems to be a Delight with a President grill. Is it so.

This pic is shot in the upmarket Jayanagar which is the biggest residential area in Asia! Once upon a time FIATs used to be in every corner of this area.

BTW, there are four FIATs in the first pic. There is another Fiat hiding behind the middle Fiat!

Its a President. The car is very original. Bought for 40k. Recently he has put the Delight bumper and I wonder why!

Arun and me had a meet with Mr. Satish who owns the most original Delight. He is Arun's neighbor and Arun had posted this Delight's pics a year back.

Some details of Delight:
-1971 model
-Color is Nimbus
-Driven for 3L kms.
-Half new engine changes a decade back.
-95% original with all original parts which came with the car.
-Car was alloted to Satish's Dad who was an IAS officer under Mysore State Governor's quota.
-Still on original paint. Need to see it to believe it.

An year old pic of the Delight

Thumbs up Day 10, the 118NE comes back to Namma Bengaluru

Yesteday, myself and Greenday (Chetan) travelled all the way to Mysore to get this car back to the city.

I must thank Chetan for being such a nice sport in accompanying me on this drive. Thanks once again buddy.

While as they say, everything in India is driven by the last minute detailing, yesterday was nothing different, My dear Mysore friend who did the transformation of this car (Mutthanna - Suson Auto) a TATA A.S.C. delayed handing over the car for over 2 hours than the scheduled time, but must admit, his team is one of the best i have seen, they are ready to perform any task, never saying NO unlike our Metro city boys.

We started our journey back to Bangalore and constantly did an average of 70Kmph and it took 2.50 hours to cover 186 kms, again the car performed wonderfully.

4 more days and a little bit of detailing, the car will be 100% back to FACTORY SPEC.

I might start a seperate thread on this car, till then enjoy the pics

Arre.. When did we restrict non-fiatians from participating in our meet?! All are welcome. It was a public event in a public place.

The only other car which came was KPS's dad with his Wolseley

Whats the status of your Padmini? I remember you had come to our meet in Cubbon park. Hope to see you in the next meet.

i had a habit of seeing my car as soon as i wake up in the morning, to make sure my panther is fine. now i m living a hard life without seeing my car in front of my house since 20days, i have parked my car at my friend's place, its 5kms away from my place. BBMP started to overhaul foot paths and drainages in my locality, its a 4-5days job, but they are taking so long time than the time required. hope to see my car in front of my house soon. they told me, it might take 3-4days more to finish in front of my house.

How sad MB. I can understand how you are feeling right now. I too feel the same when my car is sometimes hibernated in my office.

A pic for you to cheer up! FCB's 36!
