I thought the options were a drive to Sher-e-Punjab (Airport or near Kolaghat)

Maybe we could also go to some car showroom and take test drives and scare some sales guys . A new HM showroom (read Cedia's) has opened near the VIP end of Rajarhat. The other showrooms are also thereabouts.

Anyway, let's decide once we reach ...

Nice meet. Head count was lower than the first meet though.
Participents: suman(Guest of honor), shuvc, 1100d, planet and me.
Met in front of Nicco Park and drove down Rajarhat (@ planet- no spins this time around!!).
@ shuvc - guess we did scare the sales people at the HM dealership.
Saw an amby with a bloody moonroof!!!!!!!
Did not get to test drive the Cedia though!
We test drove the Civic.
Had lunch at the Shere Punjab dhaba off airport.
And a nice semi off road photo shoot of the cars.
Overall, a nice day.
Wishing all of Team BHP a very Happy 2007. May all our car driving/buying/possessing fantasies come true!!
Waiting for the next meet..........

Default 2nd Team BHP Meet @Kolkata

@shuvd - thankx yaar for the initial write up. i was kinda surprized by the goodies which HM gave in the AMBY Grand 2.0 . the civic TD was fun @back seat. i could actually feel the whooosh! from the back seat better. but i guess you guys would be able to tell more about how it handled and felt like to be in the driver's seat.

guys i was just able to upload one pic. the network connection is so slow (i use a 56 kbps modem).

here is one pic. i will upload more pics from my work station. so i guess you will have to wait till 2nd morning.

Pic 1:

from left to right -> the rides

1. my Padmini.
2. shuvc's Baleno vxi.
3. shuvd'd Elantra crdi.
4. 1100D's Fiat 1100d.



and yeah wish all of you guys a very happy new year. god bless you all. take care and dont drink and drive. drive safe.

The Fiats look like escort cars...almost delimiters!! One at each end.

One more thing I noticed we have in common....all of us are unanimous in hating Honda...however I also sensed that all of us were infact Honda fans earlier....cos all of us were looking at the old Accord and the OHC with a lot of respect....

Oh yeah, how could someone forget the TRD done-up Porsche we saw

Exactly 1100D, i was about to write that.

@planet, Nice pic, sorry i couldnt make it although I did try but just changed job, hence not possible to get a leave immediately. Hopefully sometime in this year I can attend the Kol meet....

Happy New Year to the Kol gang
Drive Safe

Abhi

Thumbs up

It was a pleasure meeting four like-minded automotive buffs..........and it was a nostalgic trip down memory lane riding the two Fiats - the exhaust roar from Planet's black beauty & the speedo needle ripping past the 100kmph mark on 1100D's dark green fighting machine.

Not to forget the immaculately maintained Baleno (I think a silver VXI looks far better than a Black but that's just my opinion) & the WICKED black Elantra CRDI (it MOVES).

I think we had good fun checking out the showrooms & had a constructive test drive of the Civic as well - we were unanimous in our opinion at the end of it, it didn't have the drool factor we expected!

I think Sam will be disappointed to hear that this was another non-alchoholic meet (what is the world coming to these days lol!) But the food at Sher-e-punjab was EXCELLENT (as was the Lassi, we had two LARGE pegs each!!!!) & the conversation was of the extremely knowledgeable variety to say the least!

We missed a few outstation members who'd promised to join in & then just vanished & didn't respond to PMs lol! Hopefully, next time?

One common gripe - non availability (still!!!) of Team BHP stickers & T-shirts. Could the mods give us a REALISTIC time frame for the first one at least? Its been 15 months since I've become a member & the stickers still haven't materialised.........

By the way, I have a few snaps I'll only be able to upload once I head back to Delhi............till then, THANKS to the Kolkata members for an enjoyable day! Happy New Year guys!
