Super super meet !

Wonderful weather. Lovely drive. Excellent food and a gang of 22 passionate car lovers ! Perfect recipe for a memorable meet.

And what a variety of cars. Not a single model was repeated ! 17 distinct models.

2 cars missing from the last snap. Hero's lowered i20 and @adc's Safari.

The nice weather helped the event to be a success. Even ADC took a detour of about 80 KM to participate and drove non stop all the way from Siliguri!
Expecting some more pictures of the event. Thanks again to all of the participants for such a wonderful meet.
Regards,
Rahul

Thanks Planet, but the real thanks should go to Shuvc for starting all this. I was a mere thread starter. And thanks to all for taking out time to make this meet a special one. And those who say that people from Bengal cannot maintain time should learn a few things from this meet. 6 a.m and that too on a Saturday morning and everybody was there on time; awesome

A few pictures from my side -

Shamik - glad that you liked the car. it may had been a bummer for you since I, as always, took it at snails pace. If i can recall correctly, as quoted by an ex-D-BHPian, "you drive the slowest car" i felt so happy

Nice. Missed the meet (this wasn't a Meat, was it? ) by a week. Special thanks to Sutripta, Sudipto-S-Team, me_sid, predatorwheelz, XetaGLGrocks, BlackPearl, for the mini-Meat/AC-meet the previous week.

Pics...

Missed you during the evening Meat courtesy me_sid, where Sutripta was present! But no, D-BHPians are not genetically attracted to each other, so what you said need not necessarily happen!

As Sudipto-S-Team said: Abar hobe! (We'll meet once again). 2nd half of June.
