Thanks Mehul for making up till here, How do you feel? thanks for the stickers apprecate your passion for Fiats.

Folks forgive me for being absent (for FCCH meet) due to some personal obligations and a sincere thanks guys (Ram, Shiva and esp Narendra saab) for picking at 8:00 AM and dropping Mehul at the Hotel (I am sure Mehul feels the same) also for arranging and making the meet yet another memorable event.
Chanu. you missed the meet, it was wonderful experiences for me to attend the meet and I greatfull Narendra Kale and Ram Sir for providing me the opportunity to meet new Fiatians, Fiats.

Ofcourse I missed my close friend Arun S and other fellow FCBians and FCKians too.

The cars really inspired me to buy one Select or Fiat600 if I am getting in my budget.

Special thanks to Narendra, without whom it would not have been possible for me to attend the meet as well as another function too.

Thanks FCCh for the wonderful momento pics of which are attached here with rally videos at orkt and pp site.

Yes, very true Ram Sir, Team BHP has provided a stage to increase our passion for cars and to express our view and share our knowledge with our friends.

On Team BHP meet you, came Hyderabad and it these things I never imagined, that there will be Fiat Clubs all around.

My first experience with Fiat was so worst that I would not forget in my life.

It all started with the scale model I still have since I was a child. I always wanted to own a Fiat and finally I did in year 2003.

I searched all the workshops in Alleppey if there was any car for sale, many there, but I didnt like any. One fine morning saw add in news paper that a Premier Padmini 85 model is for sale in Kottayam, I told dad and we both went to the place, saw the car took a short drive. It was my first drive in a Fiat, totally different experiences as I had just resigned from marketing job of Hyundai cars.

Any how I like the car, it was having LPG cylinder and the deal ended at Rs 16000/-.

The owner of the car took away the cylinder and any how we manage to start the car, no sooner it stopped in middle of the road. Me and dad had to push a side the car and tried to start, but no way she could start, again called up the x-owner, he came with a mechanic. There was no petrol in the car, the gauges were not working, any how we started the car in petrol and drove home.

It was a grand celebration at home to welcome our 1st car, my sister performed pooja an all. Next day we went to Kochi to our cousin house in the new car, half way the battery light went red on the dash, I knew that some problem is there, but it was sunday, no roadside workshop was open, then I thought it might be some loose connection and I will get it done later on.

We manage to reach Kochi, spend whole day going here and there, on the way return around 5 pm, we were about to touch NH-47, the car stopped again, did what ever I could to start the car, but no way she could start. Then some locals near by came for help and pushed the car, still no chance. It the embarsing, I was with my family on road on a Sunday, what to do?

Then some one suggested try it in petrol and they arranged a old 5 litre can for petrol and the car after much efforts started.

But when ever I put on the ligths the car will stop, again same called roadsiders for helps, some came, some put jokes on Fiat. Finally I realised that some problem with head lights, so decided not to put head lights till I reach home.

So with out head lights I drove behind trucks, buses so that I dnt have to see the harsh lights of vehicles coming from opposite and manange to reach Alleppey night 9 pm. That day I decided I will make my car all terrain vehicle, which can go any were, any time and will prove all wrong that, Fiat cant go long, its a age old cars etc.

Thanks to those critics, whom I wanted to prove wrong and manage to write on Team BHP today, its all because of Fiat and her critics.


Some pictures of my old car I had before the current S1.
