That's a good Idea we can try. We ourselves are not sure how the day would be each one of us have our own versions of dreams. atleast me. he he

Where in chittor my friend, may be we would be lucky to find a Team Bhpian out there to source the car.

Indeed FCCH is there to help people restore their Fiats.I myself am overseeing the restoration of 4 cars presently.
past few days,i have been literally stopping Premier Padminis on the road and giving them pamplets to attend the FCCH Meet on 1st May.Just this morning I stopped an immaculate 137D in the middle of the road and caused a traffic Jam for few minutes.The end result was so sweet.The owner of the 137D was delighted that such a club has started and has agreed to come to the meet.Thats what i call Fiattitude.

Also I have been getting enquiries that owners who have disposed off their Fiats want to come and attend this meet,just to look at the Fiats.How wonderful is the Fiat Spirit !!!!!!!!!!
Again hats off Ram for the efforts you are putting in here. I am feeling shame that I am unable to assist you here in however I love doing all these. I will get on to action, pulling up socks, tightning lace etc etc.

Shyam you are welcome,but i would ask you to refrain from bringing your mechanic as he is normally seen tagging along with you for obvious reasons at the automobile meets.This is our first FCCH member meet and i dont want it to be diluted or confused why im organising it.

Not to worry ram. On a lighter note, I'm anyway not going to be bringing any of my own cars, so he wouldnt need to tag along with me!!

PS: No news from Suren lately. Suren: if you're out there, is your elegant done yet?

All the Fiat Owners have been personally invited/reminded by me this evening.There are a few drop outs due to personal reasons and we look forward to see them next meet.
All preparations have been done.
Unfortunatly Shiva might not join tomorrow.
@Bala,we need to meet at 8am tomorrow at the venue to have a briefing of the Founder Members and do some arrangements at the venue.Hope you will be there.

Default FCCH 1st Members Meet

It was a cloudy morning today and perfect weather,not too hot,too sunny,FCCH was geared up for the 1st Members Meet.
At 8.15am,myself and Anirudh (Mile Cruncher) rolled into the Necklace Road MMTS parking in my Super Select and Delight and parked in order.Soon we were joined by Fiatians of FCCH.Suren's 1957 Elegant was the star of the show with shining newly restored looks.
It was the first meet for FCCH with members and I was expecting atleast 10 confirmed cars.Finally 7 turned up in good spirits and we rejoiced the whole morning.
One of the local TV channels covered the entire event with some scintillating drive of the Fiats around Necklace Road.
The following members were present at the meet:
- Suren : 1957 Elegant
- SIraj : 1960 Select
- Aman : 1964 Delight
- Ram Kiran : 1963 Super Select & 1969 Delight
- Narendra : Premier Padmini BE
- Bala : Premier Padmini
After a hearty breakfast,we had press interviews of each owner sharing the delight of owing their Fiat.
It was a good start for FCCH and the members went back with many sweet memories.
Team Bhpians Avinash (mobike008),Nazim (pulsar 56),Shyam (Stanher) and Anirudha (Mile cruncher) extended their encouragement and stood by us all through out.A perfect harmony betweem Team BHP and FCCH.
Nazim and Stanher did the clicking part and will upload all the pics soon.
Bala,Suren please post your experiance of the 1st Meet and how you felt as founders.
It was Fiatful meet and a perfect LAUNCH for FCCH.

Way to go FCCH!

You guys surely had a Fiatful day! May be once your Club is established, some of us will start attending your meets too regularly. It will be good if you too come over to Bangy during our Meets.
