I said, technically, you drive one of the fastest cars in the group (not slowest). There was no sarcasm in it, only a hint of irony.

Wow. My first TBHP meet and what an unprecedented turnout with an array of automobiles on display. I didn't even imagine that as many as 15 different cars that too from so many different manufacturers would be in attendance. So diverse was the array, from the Yeti to the Fluence , a macho Pajero and even a lowered i20. Couple that with absolutely fab TBHP members and friends with their deep knowledge of cars made a nice cool Saturday morning perfect. Thank you to all of you. Even the great ADC in his own natural elements simply took a detour of about 80 kms to meet us all even though he has been on the road for over the last 15 days with family. I salute his enthusiasm and more of his kid who took this meet as a break to go play on the swing .

The morning was so well spent in auto-banter and tales from the road. Highly entertaining as well as illuminating. Thanks to shuvc, planet_rocker, black_pearl for making this happen and each one of you. Hope this can become a regular affair, who knows maybe a road trip for 2/3 days together. Imagine a TBHP convoy hitting the road together.

Hey wassup @everyone. This was my first TBhp meet and I should say without hesitation that it crossed all my expectations. The vibes were wonderful, thanks to the organisers and all the participating members. I'm definitely looking forward to the next one.
@Soumya, I bought the Yeti in the month of January and it has got 6000kms on the odometer as of today. The Esteem Vxi has been sold off :( and so has been the Wagon R Duo. It's unbelievable how members who may not have ever met keep track of each others acquisitions and ownerships . In other words it's this common thread of automobile passion that binds us together. Cheers.

You guys had a fabulous meet as I can see from the reports and pics.

Gr8 line-up of cars and even more impressive line-up of Bhpians makes the meet surely a 5 star one as referred by Planet.

Unfortunately Saturday has never been a off for me ever and hence never could think of dropping in.

Moreover my presence would have broke the unique line-up of cars with my Esteem almost similar to Sugata

Yesterday evening went to the CCD on NH2 in my Esteem to get myself out of the trauma of getting overtaken by each and every car

Am sure that hardly would have mattered. And as Sumitro pointed out, there were 2 fiestas.

If it makes you happy, you overtook me quite a few times which you didn't realize maybe. And your monster was something am sure all of us were waiting to see in person.

Anyways thanks to you and everyone for the fantastic meet. Just hope it doesn't become an annual affair. The last one before this was in April 2011.

Sugata

Lovely gathering I must say, even we had a small meet here in Delhi-NCR. The same can be checked in the meet section.

There were actually four 1.6s. Planet_rocker's ride - the Red Sonja (Red Palio 1.6 GTX) was the fourth one.

Thanks a lot @sadnabrina for the wonderful pictures. Just like the great variety of cars on display were a range of magnificent DSLR's. Automobiles are definitely the gadget of the biggest kind, the ultimate boys' toy that we all refuse to grow up for that.
