Great stuff moral!

Since he has done the honours, heres a few of the ones i liked.


Giovanni ko topi pehnaya!







The most unique vehicle at the event was this 1939 Fiat Balila 7 seater. Note the signature door handles, quite similar to semaphore indicators.



A few of us proceeded to a members farm along the way. He had the most interesting stories! The farm has been in the family for well over 100 years, and is one of the first to have mechanised farming. So old american iron dots the landscape, including this 1936 McCormack Deering Tractor. It had the most quaint engine setup...runs on both petrol, and diesel! he engine has a lever to switch between the two, so has seperate injectors for diesel and sparkplugs for petrol! Fascinating.

Interesting picture of the Fiat engine. It seems to have integrated headers. Also, the Catcon is placed vertically just like the Civic's.

Correct. IIRC I had posted pictures of the cat-con assembly taken off somewhere on the forum. Will find them soon.

I have a picture of the entire assembly removed from one of my friends car. Will hunt it down for you. What is it that you see different on the 1.6?

Hehe, what can I say. That particular car fit me like a glove! Was actually giving a thumbs up, but shrivz was too slow to keep up with my 90kmph speed...at least thats what Kiran tells me.

Looking forward to next event in the Special. 15th August by the way. Atleast promise us you'll be there on 26th Jan. In blue and white!

Cheers
