Of all the people in the world , I never would have guessed this would happen to JayD, Had to pinch myself to make sure that I was not dreaming, anyway made a confirmatory call to the PUG member to make sure that it's not an All fools day joke.

And now i would like to quote JayD's New Quote "Every Fiat is a Ferrari", Bah lets see about that in the coming days.

If this is true, I'm going to sell all other cars you own JayD! This one thing will have to be looked after with lots of sincere devotion.

If this is not true, get ready to get bombed in the next meet.

And I've got a feeling you're going to be bombed. Pray Pray Pray!

JaaaayyyyDDD!!! Don't tell me that the 'thing' which is outside your house is the one you bought!!Why?? why?? why?? I didn't believe this thread till i saw your cousin driving it home yesterday night!! You dog created such a racket, and kept barking at it till someone parked it outside. (For those of who, are wondering how i know this, i'm his next door neighbor!) Checked out the car today morning, and one thing i can say is, hope you got it cheap.Nothing too bad, it cerrtainly needs some work, and a lil freshening up. but i think you already have everything planned out right??

P.S: It looked like an S10 to me, not a gtx. Did you get a cricket bat along with it??

P.P.S: Why do i get the feeling that the car is running on LPG??

Really? A bit difficult to believe in April 1st.

I'll believe it when I see you driving it.

Okay! Had a small Td of the car now. It drives well, very well infact. The only problem is that the tires are crap and need replacement. There are some scratches on the bumper and the front body panels, and some assorted cosmetic work. But it seems to be verrry well maintained otherwise, and a hoot to drive. At the price you got it for, even a full repaint is okay!! Its being taken to the garage now, will post some pix after it comes back.

Woaky! The car was taken to the garage, no major work to be done. Only a headlight is needed, which is outta stock.

Oh he already knows what to do thanks to the other owners in this part of the world - he will either research the bus-route (with frequent services) to the destination and take that route, or will leave the car at home and take a rental. In his case, he wont have to rent - he still has the SS80, the Matiz, the Mark 1 and the Landmaster.

Doubt if he will turn up for D R I V Es, though. He has a new best friend - Mangesh!

I think he's happy that he wont have to pay for fuel anymore - he just has to raid the kitchen and take his mom's cooking gas cylinder.
