Zombie Drive for tonight is primarily on hold.

However, we are meeting tomorrow morning for Breakfast at Candies + Autocar Performance show. Primary motivation for doing this in the morning is we'll be in APS as soon as the gates open, and avoiding a major part of the crowd that turns up in the day.

Dropping out on Breakfast guys! Sorry for the last moment 'taang', but got some work on hands.

Would try to come for the APS, but not sure. Looks like this will be one APS that I would be missing since past 3 years. :(

Pics and report of the Candies breakfast and APS meet:

One word..AWESOME! Don't remember the last time I had so much fun.
Here're the pics:

One difference this time. I was not driving and hitched a ride with Pritam in his Octi. That's Pritam waiting for me (I was late) at Airoli.

One mini fiasco. Most of the food had not arrived at Candies and whatever was available was non-veg. So we waited and browsed through the menu.

We were expecting speedy to join for breakfast, but seems he got tied up with something at the last moment.

We started towards BKC at 10:45am. I shifted to Raghav's Swift, my first time inside his FFE Swift. Was good fun. We missed a turn and did a little bit of loop, so missed the others on our way to BKC.

After the first few stalls belonging to the "do not come close - we are pricey" and "stay clear of the glass-fence" category, we moved ahead to the 'regular cars'. And this is where all the fun started. We checked out practically every car. Sometimes did a 'halla-bol' on specific cars and got 5 of us in a car.

The Hyundai stall had the Grand. We liked the digital display at the back much better.
