Yes,its called the 'International Auto Expo'. I've been invited. Why not we all decide on a time ,day and check it out? The best time would be the afternoon on saturday(since friday is out of the question). It might be too crowded on sunday.
How about after lunch,fellas?

Somehow I have become an addict of shows at the Chennai Trade Centre.

I predict that there will be massage chairs and bean bags; there will be people who attack you with hand-held, red vacuum cleaners; there will be tupperware, tandoori cookers and things to cook chapatis. There will be Bosch pressure washers.

They may pay lip service to the name of the exhibition by including a car, however I find that the copy writing for the ads for these dos is done long before the space is sold, and is optimistic to say the least!

Hey, I talk like this, and yet I still go? Yep! Sad, eh?

And I do intend to go to this one, hoping to see more than a few cars, and more than a few things related to the automobile world. Not sure when though.

If anyone sees a fair-haired westerner wearing kurta and vesti, especially if he is getting out of a filthy Swift, say hello!

Sir, If a C-TBHP meet is without a drive, then its pointless. Whats the fun if one cant prove "mine is bigger and better than yours" ??

If you wanna get to know someone intimately, then PM him / her and carry on. We dont..well atleast I dont know many people intimately at C-TBHP



and all of us meet just for the sake of a drive!

I met the Sir that made the above statement last weekend - for the fourth time - he couldnt remember me , my name or my nick on TBHP - but he could remember my car when I mentioned it. Thats how the past meets/drives have been.

Well Sushil, I do apologise for that



But some things [read cars] kept immaculate remain in one's memory. Your RED Swift is one of them!
