Needless to say, it was a fun morning and your Fiat's set quite a few hearts flutter. Envious glances and gazes was the norm of that morning.

Great pictures everyone. Nazim your tight crops have made the beauties stand out. Good Job
Thanks Avi.Indeed we wouldnt have done it with out Team BHPian support.

Default First Lady Member of FCCH

Today when i was racing to work,i slammed brakes to see an amazing sight.An elderly lady driving a Premier Padmini.I chased her for 5 mins and finally stopped her Padmini.
A quick intro and Mrs.Syed gave an account of her owning this Premier Padmini and she was totally enjoying her car.She revealed that she has been driving for 20 years her Premier Padmini !!! I was just amazed.
She immediatly agreed to join FCCH and said she would come for the next with her husband.
A few pics of her Padmini and herself(seated behind the car).
A wonderful rencontre for the week to begin.

Slightly OT, but unless my eyes are playing with me, I don't see anyone the wheels.

Ram are you sure, there was someone behind the wheels when you took the picture

I love cars and while looking at the picture, I was only concentrating on the car and had blanked all additional distractions. But Hence didn't see her. But going by this, looks like now onwards I'll have to concentrate on surroundings as well as on the prime target

I'm always "ON" with enthusiasm whether 3 am or 3pm. If you meant something else, I don't know what you are talking about

Sorry Ram for OT discussions.

Default What is the next event of FCCH

Now that FCCH has been officially launched,my first desire is to perform a event for a social cause.
FCCH is planning a Charity Event in June to subscribe to a worthy cause and benefit a deserving institution that does social service.The entire proceeds of the event would go to the deserving institution.
While I have already set the direction with initial talks,lot needs to be done in terms of stakeholder management.
The broad idea of the event is to have a Charity Drive with Classic Fiats in Hyderabad and generate awareness for a social cause.This will also highlight our social responsibility,which was one of the tenets of forming FCCH.
Any ideas/suggestions from Team Bhpians and FCCHians are welcome.

Absolutely Ram, I agree and feel the same. FCCH is not just a club for FIAT/PP but for the society aswell. This is once of the chances we can grab. We would love to take up social responsibilities and would love to use our cars and club for a good cause as a responsible citizens of the state and country.

Please go ahead I am anyways with you and I don't see any reason why someone would hesitate to comeforward for the noble, humanitarian cause.

Folks please pour in your comments, ideas.

Let's make FCCH not just a club of Fiat/PP lovers but good smartans.

Now the next task to take up is to reach out people who are still not aware of the club FCCH. I am sure there are umpty number of people who love their cars and ignorant of the club. They would love to join us. I see few of the PP's still driven around as a daily runners while travelling to office. Any ideas folks what could be done on this.

Ram what's the status on the final colour (white) to complete Italian flag.
