Lovely pics and write-up, guys. Made for good viewing and reading as well.

@Mansidea : I have said it earlier, and i repeat.. your Scorpio looks really good. I just love that two-tone paint job on it, and the wheels. Amazing. I still feel the older Scorps look way better than the new design they came up with, specially the rear. Time for you to launch your Gallery perhaps?

Hi,

> There goes TRRK and his beloved Indigo Marina (with some unusually
> upsized and downsized tyres).

Just to clear the thing, the front ones are downsized tyres whereas the rear ones are OEM spec, but Apollo Aceleres instead of the original Bridgestone tyres.

It's long over-due. Esp with the kind of photos he shoots. Have you checked the photo of his Scorp that he has posted in the "Official Auto Image" Thread ?

@mansidea, the Verna photos are beautiful.

Thank you so much benbsb29.

@docpull : Thanks for those words. This forum has helped me a lot in learning the basics of this art. Both the image threads are good text books. The best part is Rudra had agreed to work on one of those pictures of Ram's Car & i sent him the original file. You can expect a magic, when it comes back.

@govigov: yes a bit. Just the tone & contrast adjustments.

The meat, pictures and reports - all great. Fellows..many thanks for a wonderful time...now when and where is the next one..?!

Zak and myself spotted this at the Vella Kotta just before we had dinner. Rather enterprising fellow...possibly bitten by the oil bug.







Any guesses for the driver's name? Here is mine: Shake Moosakutty Bin Vadakeveetil Al-Boom.

Ho! Ho! Ho!
I fell off from my chair as I saw that Innova again. A true blue fan of the oil revolution and Gelf.

Looks like he's much more than a Gelf-return - He's trying to return with the Gelf itself !!

DEFINITELY bitten by the oil bug - Abu Dhabi man if he's carrying pictures of Shk. Zayed.

You get these window prints here with rulers pictures - usually used by Arab boys on their cars. The Innova is also sold here so he probably bought readymade stickers here and took them home. However, side window stickers are illegal here - no such issues in Nobody's Own (and hence God's Own) Country,I suppose.

Perhaps we will soon see our own Mallu Mullah featured in similar stickers soon.

MaserQ, this Innova pic qulaifies for the 'Pics of wierd & wacky mod jobs' thread.

The last one, is it an 8 picture stitch job? Looks good except for the colour changes between the frames.

Talking Huh!!! More!


Dr Pull, MaserQ and Govigov watch from a distance as some of us decides to play scrabble with our cars.


The scrabble is yet to begin!
But after all the effort and patience, it paid back with some good shots!

Like this lineup! Yes, there were better pictures posted here already.

In total there were 13 cars out of which 10 is present here!


Another nice picture I liked!


Yes, KP! We understand. Sometimes you need to shout and cry out loud that you miss God's own country a lot.


Dr Pullockaran walks back to his car. He was a good sport but had to remain quiet most of the time due to some of his students being present amongst the crowd!
Doc, Next time we will make sure none of your students are around anywhere in our vicinity!


A beautiful small temple built after the Tsunami.


Sun was soon ready to vanish and we started our drive back!
