Thanks shiva for uploading my pictures and sorry for taking your time from your busy schedule. Hope everything is fine now. Even I fell sick but this time apart from the FIAT fever viral fever aswell.

Logo work is in progress and waiting for the day to be launched at Charminar.

I have seen a Fiat and its a delight few days ago in red/some what orange colour with steel plated embossed number plate reading I guess ADY ???? at vijaynagar colony, beside the cafe the road which leads to masabtank flyover, unable to take pic as it was congested due to traffic but next time sure snap shot Oh! what a beauty she was, and will also try and speak to the owner and get that beauty to our stable.

How about collecting a data base of fiat owners who are intrested and have a reference, ya we can also take the mechanics help, what say guys?

Very colorful, loved the color combo of both your cars.
1st meet 3 Fiats, not bad. Reach out to people who don't use the Internet to like some senior citizens, call and invite all members as possible.

As of now these trade secrets are enough or your bill will run high

Hey guys,

I am from Kerala. I have a 1967 FIAT1100D and the third owner. Looking at the Kerala RC book, it looks like the original reg was in AP. The number there was ABD 1100..I would like to know who was the orginal owner.

If you are feeling sorry about what has happened (if so) no problem atleast you can be an admirer of fiat from now and you can stand for the magnificant machines which has become an integral part for many people.
Hey, don't get me wrong, no offence meant to Fiat lovers.

The car had gone to pieces waiting in the garage for me to turn 18. It was beyond salvaging when we junked it. (it was only in respect to dad's sentiment that it stood unused in the garage for years )

I'm actually pushing one of my good friends to buy a used GTX. In fact, any leads towards that end will be greatly appreciated

Congrats on your club, and if we can lay hands on a GTX, rest assured, we'll start a Delhi chapter.

Sad to hear the condition of your dad's car! As I'd stated earlier, it must've gone too bad, being one reason why you'd scrap it.

Forgive my ignorance (I seldom update myself on newer cars! ) but by GTX, do you mean Palio?? Well, although technically it is a fiat, it doesn't really fit into the definition of classic, unlike these fiats that make up the backbone of such clubs. Palio/GTX being a newer and far more readily available car, one neednt necessarily be pushed to buy one, nor start a club for it.

Fiat Palio GTX was introduced in India by Fiat for a brief period,which sported a 1.6 litre petrol engine with 100 BHP.For a hatch back it was awesome power and today they are rarely seen.
I used to own one till last year.

Ram, though I dont recall if this car was posted here earlier, it is obvious that it would be yours, whether you mentioned it or not!

Ooh! Ram garu see I missed out some great info, sexy looking car ...very neat. My younger brother has a 1.2 petrol palio, its awesome we did Mysore to Hyd 10 hrs 30 min in heavy down pour, its sheer performer and again as some ones signature says FIAT IS GOOD. FIAT IS THE BEST.

My brother is also going to take part with his Palio, another member to the club. Hurray!!

My uncle has a 1985 PP he brought it from Vijayawada showroom after selling his Morris Minor (I wish I was there) I will convince him to take part in our event.
