Let's delay the time. Say meet around 12AM. Traffic would thin out by then and would be relatively easy for people to reach.

This is a Super Excellent Idea. Saturday Night Car Fever in Carter Road. I will be certainly most interested to come. However this Saturday is not possible as I have guests coming home. I hope these meets are regular and I will be able to participate. Carter Road, Bandstand, Marine Drive ... The rendezvous can alternate. Mumbai is beautiful in these places.

Plan:

1. Reach Carter road latest by 11:30pm tonight. Meeting point http://goo.gl/maps/WBI0H
2. After everybody in and meeting some regulars of Carter road, as the traffic begins to thin out, we should start to roll latest by 12:30am. Carter Road -> Sea link -> Worli sea face.
3. Regroup at worli sea face. Possibly click some snaps.
4. Next stop Nariman point. Hopefully should be there by 1:30AM. Spend an hour there and the start return journey by 2:30am.
5. Return journey - most likely everybody would be on their own. Western suburb folks might wants to return via sea-link. Others might use Eastern Freeway. Depending on the interest and time/rain situation, a subgriup can also go to Dadar Chowpatty/Hinduja.

Midnight zombie meet and drive on 24/25 Aug

The idea of doing a midnight drive in our own island city to experience (relatively) empty roads was floated some 2-3 days back and lot of folks expressed interest.

So Saturday-night/Sunday-early-morning drive was finalized for 24th Aug.

Here's a quick report and pics:

Disclaimer: I am no expert in photography and especially in night photography. The photos have heavy grain. The white-balance is way off. Many photos are shaky. Please excuse.

'Duma' on the prowl. Clicked at 10pm in complete darkness just before Airoli intersection.

10:05pm: Met Pritam at Airoli signal and then we started towards Carter road through Sion.

Bandra does not sleep.

Just before 11pm, we reached Carter road. Some 4-5 cars were already there.

That's SiddarthDeb, Arun, BalenoPower (Abhishek) and YogeshNagpal.

Great pics SDP! It was indeed a fun meet - especially the stoppages at Reclamation and Worli Seaface. Too bad I had to leave early!

was fun, i guess we needed better locations for a proper night shoot and also some generous parking space considering the number of cars that had turned up. Here are a few pics from my end.
