Thumbs up Re: Fiat Classic Club - Hyderabad (FCCH)

All T-shirts look cool except for the words on the last one : A Fiat never spoils but only boils. The word "boils" sounds more like a overheating problem!

Default FCCH has the true Fiat Vintage Car now !!!!!!!!!!!

It was a delightful day when i finally had a rencontre with the oldest Fiat car I have seen in these times.
FCCH takes the pleasure to introduce and induct a rare 1933 Fiat 508 into its family.Its owner Mr.Narendra was more than happy to show me his Fiat 508 with pride and eagerly joined the club today.
Though the car was not in a starting condition as the Battery was not fitted,I was promised a ride next week.
The Fiat looked pristine with few niggles and ofcourse needs a restoration and Body work/repainting done quickly.

Ill let the pictures talk !!!

Very nice Hillram. Glad to know know if you have added such an important newbie to FCCH

This is the first time I was seeing this kind of vertical front grill, hence I Googled and found these cars were made in Poland known as Polski Fiat 508. Does the owner have any information on where this car was manufactured?

Thanks Karthik.Indeed its a beautiful rare Fiat.We are all proud of it.
This could be the second oldest Fiat in Hyderabad as a 1913 Fiat is showcased in the Chowmahalla museum.

By the way there is another older Fiat in Hyderabad Here is the link to a 1930 Fiat 514 Tourer. You should invite this car too to the FCCH

I fell in love with this car the moment I saw the pictures, I felt why did I not get into this kind of car and restored it! .

Naren ji the current owner of this car is a vivid collector and has got good collection with him I know this gentleman and carry the same passion for British Bikes, I am glad we have this car with FCCH and indeed this is an accolade to the club, let's appreciate Ram Kiran together for adding this valuable addition (Naren ji and his cars) to the club.

Your right Bala.Indeed Mr.Narendra is an avid collector of Vintage Cars and Motorcycles,but looks like he has some bad experiances with Hyderabad Rallys(as stated by him).Hence he has lost all the interest to exhibit his cars.Now he has evinced lot of interest with FCCH and wants to bring back the 508 to its glory of his halcyon days.

If you want that Orange tractor, look no further you will get them in India along with the same era Trucks. Atleast in my Home town there were plenty of them.

All courtsey Madam and the Itallian Govt. as a gift upon her marriage .
Also at that time there were two russians in my home town (of all the wonder??) for the maintenance of these vehicles, who bought with then 2 Lada cars (patriotism) and left it here as is upon their return. The cars have junked by now.
