Default New FCCH Members Inducted

In 2 Separate instances,FCCH inducted 2 more members:
1. 1962 Fiat 1100 belonging to Mr.Chandrashekar,who visited us at the HIAS 2010 in the FCCH stall.Today his Super Select became a member of FCCH.
Apparently this member owns a 1946 Studebaker,1950 Jaguar and few more Vintages along with this Fiat 1100 Super Select.

2. 1996 Premier 118 NE in a pristine conditon accidentally turned up near my house and upon a quick interaction with the owner a young Mr.Krishna,who whole heartedly agreed to become a member of FCCH and come to our next meet in October.

The next FCCH meet in October will happen in Old City precints of Hyderabad in a Heritage Building..Stay tuned for more details.
Friends we are reaching the 1000th post milestone.Lets see who will do this illustrous post !!

Congratulations to all and especially Ram, who has being putting a lot of efforts inspite of his busy schedule to have FCCH at this stage, I knew it Ram you will not slip a single instance/opportunity to have nice cars in our club. Kudos to you.

The premier 118NE looks awesome, I also have a car which is used by an Army officer which is scratchless (absolute showroom condition) now somewhere in Vijayawada given to his relative without our knowledge which I want to retain it in Hyderabad, in our club. Me and my friend who happens to be the next owner of that car are going shortly to retreve the car before its lost for ever. Wish us good luck.

I also have another car with one of my friend's dad single owner till date since 85, neat car which is still driven by his dad 60 yrs old, he wanted to gift it to me anyday I want looking at my intrest for Fiat.

Ram sir got an idea! why don't we start collecting the data base of new likers who want to own Fiat cars from our enquiries at shows, events etc so we can give the cars saved to them this way the car gets a new caring owner.

I would like to know more about this. How did you do the wiring? Did you take the power supply from some relay system working with heat of the coolant or? Can you please elaborate??

With thanks and regards

@ Ram,
The wheel caps on this SuperSelect doesn't seems to be original but seems to be interesting one. Post some engine bay pics & interior pics if possible.
But a very well maintained car, except very few non-original things as side lights, wheel caps (& might be wheels also ?, are those the clip wheels)
The 118NE also seems to be a very well kept car.

Post Response to query by glomus123

Hello glomus123,

Thanks for your query. As you correctly guessed, a relay has been used in this system.

- The relay activates the fan when the ignition key is switched off.
- The fan is connected to the battery via a thermostat. These thermostats are easily available in industrial electronic shops with various temperature ratings.
- We have used a thermostat that has a 60 degree centigrade temperature rating and is fitted on the radiator.
- The fan stops when the engine temperature comes down to 60.

The fan is combination of a motor from the Maruti 800's cooling fan and the fan blade is from a blower that comes with the 118 NE. The fan has been angled in a way so that the air flow is directed towards the head of the engine. (Note : This fan is not seen in the pictures that I had posted on this thread as it was removed for servicing.)

Regards,

Rahul Waghmare.

Thank you Rahulji for the detailed information. I always wanted to do this, because here in South Korea I can hear every vehicle's fans running even after stopping and locking the vehicle. Is this facility available in our new generation cars in India also?

Hi glomus123,

I am not sure about the new generation cars in India. But I do know from a very reliable source that the original Maruti 800's design had the cooling fan designed to run even after the ignition is switched off. (Just like you mentioned about cars in South Korea.) However for Indian market, the design was changed so that the fan only works when the ignition switch is turned on.

Regards,

Rahul.

Fiat Classic Club Hyderabad(FCCH) Founder Ram Kiran(Hillram) was part a charity show just yesterday organised for Breast Cancer Awareness at Secunderabad Club.[/quote]

Totally agree with Karthik1100, Sir Ram Kiranji is a nice gnetleman I ever meet, he has so much knowledge about Fiats that I like to meet him over and over again to get some knowledge and still down to earth person. I came to know many things of his charity from Mr. Narendre Kale of FCCH. Hats off to Shri Ram Kiranji, Sir your our inspiration. Keep the good work going and we pray god that he gives you all the needed.

Mehul..Thanks for your kind words.Its the support you get from friends and near and dear,which keeps me going.

@hrishikesh..I dont bother much on the originality as there is no end to originality.I want my automobiles to be well maintained and mechanically sound that i can use them anytime I want.Its simply comes down to sheer Darwinism:Survival of the Fittest !!!

Well said Ram! There will hardly be any vehicles running if everyone were after pure originality. It is always better to experiment and find ways of enjoying these timeless classics!!

The star attraction of the next FCCH meet will be a preview of Rahul's(Scarlet Rider) "hot rod" Premier 118 NE.
Narendra..its been long time we met.Hope you will be there for the meet this time.

Like we discussed last Sunday, I think the best option will be to assemble at the Necklace Road MMTS station at 9 AM and then proceed to Mr. Mushtaq Hussain's Heritage Palace by 10 AM. An opportunity to visit Falaknuma Palace would be an icing on the cake!!

Ram, we feel honored when you use words like "Star Attraction" and "Hot Rod" to describe our 118 NE! In fact all cars in the FCCH are stars in their own right. Looking forward to see the "Constellation" of Fiats at the next meet!
