Nothing can match the joy when people at your home appreciate your work. Like wise I feel immensely happy we have got the Auto Expo in Hyderabad to add to that pride we have our ravishing beauties (Italian babes) one in Red to pump in your desire and there is this green to say goooooo!

So join in folks for the show to witness all the fresh models which deplicit the modern marvel machines and round the corner the magic machines which is simple, sweet and sexy delivering passion and love.

Ram needs to be credited with loads of appreciation along with thanks apart from few others (forgive me for the ignorance) who have been helping in getting the FCCH ready for today, Thanks Narendra Kale sir for the before hand pictures. Lot of home work displayed, I promise to be there to enjoy and make you all enjoy every bit of time present at the stall.

Ram: Do consider to display some history of both the cars too. I mean Name, Model, Super Select had body imported from Italy I guess - some info on that etc. Cos aam aadmi wont know the difference in Fiat models and might feel both the cars are just ordinary FIATs!

Ya Ram, what arun said makes sense. people should know what is special about these cars, if possible put all technical details like monocoque chassis, rear wheel drive, lighter body weight etc.,

Thanx karthik X 2, superselect, Sujith, Arun and other FCBians,
First of all, idea of your handler picture of FCB logo in green, yellow and red is fabulous. It shows team integrety and spirit with a common theme.
About history of fiats, as already said by Ram , presentation is running. And of course on driver seat of each car, Ram has put one A4 size card which gives the owner's name, make and model and brief tech specs of the car. But that is not visible in photos. When somebody tries to peeps in it can be read.

Both the fiats, if you mean, at the FCCH stalls, are hillram's. I too was there in the afternoon (2.00ish-4.30ish pm) and also didnt see anyone at the FCCH stall. I presume they had gone for a break during that time, as all the stall-holders/volunteers would have to be at the stall whole day until well at night (they might still be there at this time too)

Thanks for dropping in at the FCCH stall.Indeed I was all alone today and was shuffling between DHAA stall for Vintage cars and motorcycles and FCCH stall and managing few press interviews at the backstage.
Tomorrow and day after someone will be there at the FCCH stall.Do drop in !!

It was a field day at the FCCH Stall as we received a tremendous response from Fiat lovers who liked the idea of starting a club and help them restore the glory of Fiats.
Enquiries came well beyond our expectation and we were present in full strenght with Bala,Suren,Shiva,Narendra and Myself.
We will probalbly have good number of new members at the next meet,thanks to this display at HIAS 2010.
Our stall got its name making it easier to recognise and also we had presentations and video clippings running with essential data,info,history etc,which attracted more curious onlookers.
FCCH Founders were all present togather to receive the crowd.
Tomorrow is the last day of the Auto show and we hope the response will be better.
A quick word of thanks to FCCHians who made it a field day with full enthusiasm and Fiattitude !!!!!!!!!!
