Joy,

your car is great, my uncle had one in same shade too, sold long ago. Me and my cousin drove her like crazy. And to tune her up was a nightmare for me always . I really have bad experience working on 118 NE.

Joy, do post the pics of the bug fiat. And as Arun said, do turn up with both the cars along with Pavan. We have given you guys enough time to plan up for our upcoming rally. Its our first anniversary too.
Part with that 118NE, and that too Joy Karthik you might have to wait for another 50 yrs.

FIAT never called the car(500C) BugFiat or TOPOLINO.

Since small cars were the order of the day, FIAT started building really small 'Peoples' cars.The first of which was the FIAT 500A in 1937! It was so small people started calling in 'Topolino' which essentially means mouse/mickey mouse. Then in 1948 or 49 they changed the design a little and made it modern with a 570cc OHV engine called the 500C.

The term 'BUGFIAT' is controversial because VW guys say it's a nick name exclusive for the infamous 'BEETLE'. Strangely it was coined in South India, and is seldom used anywhere else in the world including N.India!

My Dad owned a 500C in the 60's and I always wanted one. With PAVAN KADAM's help I've managed to acquire TWO! Please don't ask for pics of the cars as it's going through a very critical phase of it's restoration. PAVAN will post pics soon. Meanwhile here are some teaser pics of the FIAT TOPOLINO/BUGFIAT/500C. Any input will be appreciated. Thanks!

I dont mind waiting 50 years at all. What a wonderful gift it would be for my 80th birthday. I am sure Joy will take excellent care of her.

Very shortly saar, but wondering how to fit this car into the club, Even if Joy gets both is Fiat 500's ready, he'll still fall short of 100cc to get into the Fiat 1100 club

I will get 100cc for you from Stephens Square.

We have named our Club as Fiat 1100 Club but is open for all Pre 1997 Fiats.

We had not imagined that B'lore would have so many rare Fiats when we formed the Club.

Anyways, Joy and You are always welcome to our Club Meets.

Default Obituary MER 3501

Hi Team,
With regret I inform you all that due to a major engine problem and Rust isuues and my inability to spend time and money on her, I had to part with my Beauty.There were no real buyers so I had to ask a scrap dealer to tow away my vehicle.

This vehicle had served us for close to 32 years and I learnt my drving with her. Indeed a very sad envoirnment sourrounds me.

My Padmini is no more.

Hoping to buy another one and get her to my expectations as my sunset beige, lost beauty.

RIP : MER 3501

Regards
Selva
