FCCH has become irresistable for the Hyderabad fiatans. They are sure they would be in a right place where FIATTITUDE is religion and FIAT is god. Now there is a question Ram we need to see/plan how well we can accomodate all the members in regards to the venue (parking) and the facilities. I'm sure we shall sort out these basic things well and fine.

Dear FCCHians,
Im thinking of organising a Fiat meet with the new members ahead of the grand launch in May.This is mainly because of the over enthusiasm shown by new members to meet with Fiats and exchange ideas.Over last few days i have been thronged with calls and emails to organise a meet.
Suren,Bala,Shiva what are your thoughts?Where and when can we have the meet?

Good idea Ram. FCB too is having a small meet this Sunday only for new members. They are eager to meet us.

Arun this meet is mainly to meet the new members and advise them how to maintain Fiat 1100s.The most common query that i have received from my members is the need of good mechanic as each Fiat invariably has some problem.
I have already refered your friend Narendra to my mechanic and he has resolved Narendra's issue of Engine overheating.I feel this is the first value add that our club should show to members.

I reckon there will be about 12-15 cars as this is the first meet with new members.
This is not the official launch though.

Yes few of the members are keen to meet before the B I G day (launch) as we all want to discuss common concerns, I am one of them who is jumping to meet and was flodding our official email inbox with mails. Thanks to the members who have become like family mebers who show concern on eachothers problem and very understanding.

I'm sure it would be a delight to see all the Fiat's lined up not only for the members but the other road users aswell. Drooling, Drooling
