Default FIAT/PADMINI overtake on Pune -Nagar road

I was travelling from Pune to Ahmednagar in my friends Logan. We were maintained steady speed of 80 kmph. Suddenly after Shirur one white FIAT slowly overtook us. We saw 6 people sitting inside and steadily he was at 90-100 kmph. Exhaust note was so smooth that it must be just half accelartor. If he would have pressed full it will be around 130-140 kmph with full load. Wow!!!!! what a rugged and load pulling machineand that to minimum 15 -18 years old. (MH_17 C).!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Then we raised speed to 100-110 kmph to overtake and here is the video...........

I have immediatly told my birthdate and he comes out with sunday. To crosscheck we saw on PC but ufff calender was only upto 1980. then we checked CASIO diary and it was amazing. It was sunday.
I told my son's birthdate and agin in 10 secs he told it was Tuesday. To my surprize it was same.
So guys every hardcore Indian FIATian is Unique!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Long live family of FIATs and their passionate lovers!!!!

Dear Kaleji - I think I have met the owner of this car. He was a very soft spoken maharashtrian "kaka". I have met him either in Ale Phata or Narayangaon on the Pune Nasik highway a couple of years back. It was a diesel car, very well maintained.

By the way, we had MAM8158, a very normal looking black Premier Padmini Diesel car from the outside, but that was where the similarity ended. Open the bonnet and you would see an 1800 cc turbocharged Volkswagen design derived FNM diesel engine which we had imported from Italy for R&D trials. During a drive from VRDE Ahmednagar to Mumbai many many years back, I overtook a 6 cylinder Volvo car (not bus) and the Volvo could not catch me. I used to drive MAM8158 at @ 150 kmph and it could go higher but I had to be careful of the brakes and of the driveline breaking due to the excessive torque. Finally the Volvo guy caught up at a signal at Chembur and when I told him that it was a diesel, he could not believe it. I then opened the bonnet and showed him. MAM8158 was the fastest Premier Padmini Diesel car in India.

Best regards,

Behram Dhabhar

Baap re baap!!!!!!! 150 kmph. But FIAT is so rugged that in those days road condition was very pathetic and you overtook 6 cylinder Volvo car!!! Toooooooo Goooood!!!!

Definately Sir, MAM 8158 is the fastest diesel Padmini in India.
In dream also we can't see Padmini at 150 kmph. And you have made it thats it.......

(Note: If MAM 8158 would have fitted with ABS, then you would have tried at 170 kmph also)

Yes Mehul, Next time I'l definately allow FIAT to overtake me and take a video. And regarding my Blue color Linea request no reply from FIAT, but now Shiva is trying for me. Let us see.

Okay, done Narendra, be ready never know when a Fiat1100 will over take you, know the attitude has changed, many people are now attracked towards Fiat1100, all because of the effort but by fiatians like you. Hats off to you, for the support you provide to fellow Fiatians rather than only talking and self-upraisal done by so called masters of Fiats.

Default One more black classic!!!

One more black classic in prestine condition. (May be it was not cleaned for 2-3 days otherwise the color is really shining) I spotted this car so many times with a beard person driving. But unfortunately I was not having camera. I have knocked his door in morning and evening but no response. So I took car's photos without his permission.

Narendra saab! car looks stunning. Is it a S1 or 137D ?. How is that you could manage to get these pictures from you home town? do you have some representative out there or what?.

I salute you passion for these cars, you even went to unknown persons and knocked their doors to get to know about the car, really comendable efforts.

Bala bhai it certainly is NOT a S1 going by the badges. Even i doubt if its any pre 90s model judging by the position of wiper box. It seems either the boot lid was changed to later one which retained the badges or its dieseled and the 137D badge sticked on.

As the badge on right side of boot is much longer, its looking like a 137D as those badges used to have written with PADMINI 137D or Padmini S1 & as per your opinion, it might be a dieseled version with 137D badges sticked on it.

The PADMINI 137D badge on the boot is not at its default place. It should be in line with the PREMIER badge so its an aftermarket job. But i am dead sure that its an old model car definitely pre 94 one.(am not sure of the year) The wiper movement seems to be of LHD type and not RHD type. Gurus please confirm this.

Default Re: Fiat-o-graphy in Ahmednagar (MS) - My Hometown

One more FIATian,
He is a owner of 2-wheelers automobile spares shop.
Long term ambition of owning a 4-wheeler. So FIAT came to help him. Owned in just 20K bucks. He said I am not maintaining the car at all. It is 24Hr x365 days parked outside for almost 5-6 years after acquisition. But still the engine firing is smooth and starts with hardly 2-3 'selfs'. It is always parked near Sitaram Sarada Vidyalaya.
