The positive part (my guess) is that since the Elegant has been lying there for so many years, the owner does not have the intention of sending it to the scrapyard.
That doesnt seem to be an elegant but an older Millecento! 'seems rather complete too- needs a good home! have you tried talking to the owner about it so far?

Wow - Looks like you guys had a great time at Mr.Mushtaq Hussain's haveli - nice place and lovely cars.

@Scarlet, the white padmini seems to be in a decent condition. Would it be possible for you to check and let me know if it is up for sale?

@ Stanher & Yaser : I am trying to find out if the owner is willing to sell the two cars. It may take some time as I am not approaching him directly due to certain reasons. Will keep you guys posted once I have the information.

Regards,

Rahul Waghmare.

Mehul bhai you extremely lucky to have those manuals as they are rare to find nowa days. Do preserve them. BTW any pointers on the source of acquisition. Waiting eagerly for the soft copy of the Fiat Select manual.
PS: a little correction, the second manual is of Premier 1.38D (diesel) and not 118NE (Petrol).

True gods gift to we Fiatians only, for others its just a piece of junk booklet which according to them will invite the termite on dinner.
Mehul bhai don't forget to scan the front page too. I think there was a pic of the main page on forum, will dig out and forward you so that you can compile it as the one you have, it seems, is torn.

Mehul,

When I saw your post with the pictures of the user manuals of the Fiat 1100 and the Premier 1.38D, I went back to the book shelf in our house and saw all the manuals that we have. I keep reading these books once in a while and every time they bring back a smile on my face. The Fiat 1100 Instruction Book and the Fiat Safe Motoring Hints Book are special. The quality of print, paper and the amount of information explained with pictures in these books is just awesome! I am attaching pictures of the manuals that we have. Feast your eyes folks!

Regards,

Rahul Waghmare.

Wow Rahul! You really have a treasure. Please give a copy of the Fiat manual to all Fiat owners!

Any scan images, please post them in :

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/post-w...ml#post2122697 (The FIAT 1100/Premier Padmini Technical Information thread)

Mehul1100: Don't take the trouble of scanning the manual you have as Fiat 1100 e-manual is readily available.
