Hi guys,
well this was long time back. Dippy and his bro had come to Andheri to see the Ferrari. We met outside my building and were waitin for the 355/360. It used to pass by my building every Sunday evening. We were busy talking when suddenly we heard a loud sound. It was the 360 and he zoomed past us. Too bad , we were on the opposite side of the road. The 360 went towards Juhu Circle. I was sure that it would be back in 15-20 minutes. Cos that was a routine every Sunday. But all of us were getting very impatient and so we decided to go towards Juhu Circle. We went till the end, checked out the petrol pump to see if its gone there for a fill-up. But no luck.

We headed back towards Seven Bungalows. Dippy's brother was with me on the bike. We were almost at the end of JV link road when I cud see something yellow in the mirror. And guess what?? It was the 360. Dippy was behind us. And he prpbably didnt see that the 360 was just behind him. We turned behind signalled Dippy to look behind. The car zoomed past us. I got my bike right next to the 360 and was continously oooooogling at the interiors and the engine bay. Imagine riding at 60 and just looking sideways.

And Dippy was also no less. The way he was driving to overtake the 360, he would have never driven that way in his whole life [what say, dippy]. Going fast, honking continously at ricks and cabs to move out of the way. And Dippys bro and me were shocked to see Dippy drive like that . Finally, Dippy caught up with Bhushan at 7 Bungalows bus depot and they both stopped in the middle of the road and started a small chat. We too overtook them and stopped right in front of them and were just staring at the car. It was a good view. Dippy in his zen chatting with Bushan in the middle of the road. And the worst thing was that we had left Dippy's camera in the car. If we had it with us, the pic would have been amazing.

Hey V12

Yeah wasnt that a great evening . I guess it was the first time we met isnt it... Truly an evening to remember. I agree with you pal . I have never driven the way I did that day ever in my life. The overtaking from the opp lanes et all keeping bumper to bumper with the 360. Have to also thank a BEST for getting in the way. But finally I guess it paid off. Wasnt it a great site both me and Bhushan chatting in the middle of the road and the traffic honking from behind.. .Wish we could click that moment would have made a pretty picture

Cheers
