What a day it was

We spent quality time with our Fiat ICON. You cant ask for more. Sirji is so really down to earth person, and also has a good sense of humor. He gave us a lot of information on many topics and also told how to make that DIY (Do it yourself). Thats the best part. We will get the best from our cars when we follow it. It was such a pleasure that he drove my S1 all the way till Chikballapur. My car would have loved it too. He also explained what were some issues and how to go about fixing it.

Anyways, with his support, there is no doubt that all our beauties will run for many more decades to come.

EDIT: I will let Arun upload the pics when ever he gets a chance. I will upload couple pics some time tomorrow.

It was a wonderful time I spent with Dhabhar Sir along with my fellow Fiatians. Though I could talk to him only for a few minutes it was a great time at the BIA. In the morning session he gave a long lecture on various components to Karthik and Arun which I was listening to over the phone, Thanks to Arun for putting me online for 16mins.

Thanks Sir for spending your previous time with us, Please do visit FIATLURU again

Default Thanks to the Fiats of Namma Bengaluru.!!!

Amazing turn out today in the FCB Meet/Rally and very memorable Nandi Hills drive.

Almost all the new members participated in the meet today. The total turn out was 40+ cars!!!!!!

Surprisingly it was a day of Delights, Presidents, Padminis and S1s.. Very few suicide door cars came as many of the Members were busy with their own schedules.

We had a wonderful and safe trip to Nandi Hills. 6 Cars went to the Hills.

I am posting few pics and briefly about the event that went through the day.

Sujith and Karthik will post many more pics.

The meet was at 9 30am in Cubbon Park.

Thanks Ravi, Was a great great meet. Turn out was shocking to the founders itself. The reserved parking lot was full ! Fiat 124 is one of our Member's Mr.Jatin, and the Military green (or Brown, CAB) is Boeuff's.
More pics to come, I and Karthik too tired to upload now.

Yes it is boeuff's.....but it ain't a President, it's a rare, early Padmini (circa mid 70s) that came with just the President grille, everything else on it was different from the President.

Anyways, nice show guys! Needless to say y'all sure had fun today!
