Congratulations on your buy Jay and welcome to the Gang of die hard Fiat fans.

The alloys on the pic will give you a tough time keeping clean but they have great looks.

One habit I picked up from being a TBHP member since 2004 is that "Never Believe Anything Until You see it , atleast a snap..even if it is TRUE"

Had been to his house today to confirm that this wasn't a prank and I couldn't believe what I saw in his driveway, a gleaming green palio 1.6 gtx.The car looks OK, its having a couple of dents on the fender etc,but the interiors looks well maintained.

JayD, congrats and be prepared for the "one hell of an experience" of your lifetime.

Ok so here is a pic from my phone cam for those who still dont believe.(sorry for the poor quality)

PS:His dog was still barking at it.

Congrats.

Forget about the 100PCD. Ask Zak or even carfreak.

Eh, runs on gas?

Green ECO-Palio 1.6!

The mass options aren't always an enthusiast's choice. And keeping in mind JayD's craziness, expect an 18 incher or so.

Ishan will help you with the best tire configuration.

As they say....'All good things must come to an end" And so must this prank! Due to certain... err... 'circumstances'(which range from vandalism to terrorism!!)
HAAAAPPPY APRIL FOOLS DAY EVERYBODY!!!

A special thanks to all those who fell for it! Some of you guessed it at the first moment, while others(many actually) thought i'd gone bonkers.
A cousin was actually going to pick up a palio, that's how i got this idea.

But I learned one thing outta all this, PUG and Fiat fans are one strong close group. The amount of mails and PM's i got are a testament to that!Hats off to you guys!!

Ha! I guessed so!
So, is the pic that of your cousin's car?

Seriously, the part about raiding your mom's cooking gas cylinder was hilarious!
