Take care and Keep smiling always

Hey Sushil,

This double digit was always there guys but it's that the attendance was missing somehow, at last started to begin now. I agree to you Ram today there was a lot of 'feel good factor' with full attendance, new faces (this time families participation) , new cars (Super Select of Tej bhai and Mitwa das 137D). I am sure the FCCH fire is catching up, and will increase as well.

I guess the climate here in Hyd has also become a fan of FCCH. I observe all our meets held till now weather was very co-operative & pleasant, today also was cloudy and filled up with cool breeze, everyone came on time to the spot and the old airport parking lot which has gone pale without enough vehicles after it being closed has relieved with all vibrant, color full cars coming in getting parked one by one. The security was confused and started asking if we are going to have a race or something of that sought!

Felt proud and inspired by elderly gentleman Mr.Suryanarayana garu attending the meet and launching his private website at the event with his granddaughters.

Nice to see lot of cars today, we had almost all the models from FIAT at the meet except Millecento and Uno which are due to come in the in the later meets.

TFI (Team Fiat India) also participated with us though couldn't get the numbers what they expressed/expected apart from that multiple car owners preferred to get their FIAT/Premier Padmini to that of Punto or Linea, thanks to their allegiance for FCCH.

I thank everyone who took time from their personal commitments, family etc and attended the meet to make it a huge success clap

Thanks a lot Waghmare ji for the superb pictures of the lineup.
Hey Sagar, brother long time. Umbrella idea was from our beloved member Hanu Kothapalli to all, he might have thought it's monsoon and would be apt gifts for all, we sure missed you Hanu.

Good press coverage we got this time! The Indian Express folks seem to have conveniently picked up a few lines from my report posted on this thread!! http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/post-w...ml#post2406249 (Fiat Classic Club - Hyderabad (FCCH))

Rony and Ravi : I knew that all Fiat Connoisseurs would be drooling over APY 4266!! Hence I had taken a few more pictures of this car. This 1960 Fiat 1100 Select has been with the owner since 1966. According to the owner, it still has the original dark blue seat covers below the existing one. Even the number plate still has the 4 piece border. Check this thread for more details : http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/post-w...at-1100-a.html (My 1960 Fiat 1100)

Hope you enjoy these pictures!

Regards and Keep Revving,

Rahul Waghmare.

Thanks Ram kiranji and FCCH for the Love and affection you all have given me. It was a golden day for me too then, to meet you all there.

Congrates for the double digit participation in the meet, hope it goes to three digits soon, I wish you and the whole FCCH Club the very best and all the best possible support from Premier Padmini site.

Thanks Ram Kiranji, for the great contribution to the Fiat community, from the last meet the Fiats image has changed a lot hats off to you.

All the best from the members of Premier Padmini site, keep contributing for Fiatians.

If I was President of India, I could have given you the title FIAT GURU OF INDIA, what say FCCH friends?

I guess you meant FCCH, right Mehul! Let's not forget others (including the members apart from the founders) who have also equally contributed to make FCCH come this long.

You need not be a President Mehul to award, you are a Fiat lover and appreciating another lover that is more than enough.

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/travel...r-padmini.html (1400 Kms in 18 yr old Premier Padmini)

Please let me know your views on the same.
And i love my PP very much, hence could not even think of selling/exchanging her when i got nano.[/quote]

Hey brother,

its an awesome travelogue
really inspires us to take long trips on a premier padmini... after reading your travelogue I recollect the punchline which used to come in the premier padmini ads" THE PREMIER PADMINI- Gets you there "

Keep it up.

Take care and keep smiling always

regards

Sushil
