Ram Saheb,

Nice video - lots of animated discussion. shrivz looks camera shy , Evo looks lazy as usual, Karlos and Moral (right? ) talking about cops I think..while the gang to the right including Appollo tyre contest winner are pretty quiet.

Videos of the cars driving ? More pics please.

Friends, we had a great Team-BHP fellowship and an early morning 80 km round trip to Lavasa.

The road had some fantastic hairpin bends on the Mutha Ghat, a great view of the Temghar Dam, and a lot of cartalk. A fantastic Sunday.

Here are my unofficial Nokia N73 cameraphone pix.
(the pictures are clickable).

We can look at them, while we await the official digital SLR pix.


Bhushan's sight-for-sore-eyes Audi TT.















moralfibre had arranged for us to visit the B. U. Bhandari garage where some non-everyday cars were being rebuilt.

Among these were a 1956 Dodge Kingsway Deluxe, Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu, a 1969 Chevrolet Impala with a fresh beautiful coat of mist green metallic paint, a Volkswagen Beetle and old Mr. S. L. Kirloskar's 1963 Lincoln Continental with the suicide doors.

There we met an old friend from an early Team-BHP meet: Sameer Asgaonkar. He now works for B. U. Bhandari.

After that we went to the B.U. Bhandari showroom and saw a 1959 Chevrolet Impala and a 1960 Chevrolet Biscayne.





The 1959 Chevrolet Impala has been my all-time favorite.

It was a good drive! I was actually gonna come to the meeting spot to tell the guys that I won't be coming. I had fever in the morning. But the atmosphere was brilliant! So I went anyways...

Received some detailed criticism on my driving from Mr. Shrivz! EVO6 had his usual sudden zhatkas with TT and brilliant tailgating shown by rahulvilas!

I still have 103 degrees fever so don't feel like writing much!

Guys, where are the photos??

No offence meant buddy, and i hope no offence taken, it was just that I got scared when you braked with the clutch pedal pressed through the corners.. its just my personal thing.. sorry about the continuous nagging, "go slow", "aaram se le", etc.. I get scared when I'm passenger..

but thanks a tonne for the ride , the Tucson is indeed a great car.. take rest and get that fever off you..!
