wish we had ur mobile number, man ! ajo was like all the time "wish we had nitrous and islero - the 2 most senior members for today's meet"

ok, a write up, if u would call it, on the Sunday meet...

"Where u man, I'm at Besant Nagar" This was Ajo calling me on my mobile at 9 a.m sharp.

"Wow ! Thats one punctual guy" i thought to myself as I downshifted and made the most of the relatively traffic free adyar bridge and shook hands with Ajo at 9.05. Cool weather, luckily. A few calls later and Arka (the Jeeper man) came on his big Jeep, Aditya and Headers joined us at Murugan Idli's for breakfast. A quick breakfast it was and most of it was like "what do u do ? I do this" kinds...
okie, breakfast done, Arka had to leave 'coz he was heading to Vellore to do a recce for an off-road event (the guy is majorly into off roading) so the 4 of us decided to head back to Besant Nagar to continue our discussions. Thats when Aditya decided to floor his esteem and give us an idea of how awesome his car sounded "Yep, headers, free flow she got" he nodded as Ajo and I quizzed him as to what was in the car.

Headers had come in with Adtya and was convincing us to try out "hand brake turns" sometime in our cars and even explained how we should be doing it....Thanx Headers, we'd like to see a demo next time and u can bet we'll be good students !!!

Started feelin thirsty and so "Coffee Day" it was. Aditya drove the 4 of us there and 'wow' is not enough to expain the pulling power of the car, i'm sure it pulls as hard as, if not better than a stock Baleno

Can remember discussing Header's gypsy, the automech exhausts, K&N's, Michael Scumacher, other cars, the RD 350, the Yezdi and even the Hero Puch for that matter !!! So discussed pretty much everything on wheels, I should say

Got back to our respective cars, discussed some more music this time, the guys left me grinning from ear to ear after confirming that the music system in my car sounded good even without an amp and a sub and it was 12.30 before we even knew it and then it was time to get back home !

A very brief meet, but helped the newbies like me to chill out a bit and prepare for the big meet thats to come....

Nitrous, you're the database man, lets make the next meet one to remember !!!

Cheers,

J
DAYUMM!!!

Its time for me to get the party started. I'll send out smses to all the chennai BHPian numbers i have on my mobile.

Man, don't know exactly but I can assure you that it'll be an expensive affair! I know that I'd checked out for the British Grand Prix as I was in London on the 11th of June and they were really high (available ones were in excess of INR 20k so I decided to give it a miss! Check this link for French GP details (click on link for tickets on top right hand corner) & you can decide which tickets you would like to go in for -

Sounds good. Though I would like it to start a little earlier so as to avoid the Chennai heat, I am not proposing that considering my being a late riser and that I missed last week's meet due to having overslept (Man, I did not even hear the alarm go. What woke me up was slip's call).
