How about after lunch,fellas?

Now you mock at our very successful MMMM meet? You are so in trouble,dude!
Hey Nitrous, no offence dude !! It was just my personal opinion. And no - I did not mock at the MMMM meet. It was the 1st TBHP meet for me and I did like it, though it could have been better - one thing was being forced to park my Cielo at Mayajaal and the other was the lunch screw up at Moonrakers. Otherwise it was nice.

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?
I like your nickname on the forum - Thad E Ginathom - unique really !! And yes, whatever you've mentioned about these so called expos / shows / fairs at Chennai Trade Centre is quite true.

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!
Vikram, apologies, but no offence meant in what I had said earlier. It was just my personal opinion. And I certainly don't believe in "proving mine is bigger and better than yours" !! After all, we all like our vehicles for our own reasons - comfort / space / emotional or sentimental attachment or whatever

Ha ha true Nitrous. I agree with you on that !!

As for the meet on Sat afternoon at Chennai Trade Center, I shall confirm shortly after checking with folks at home for any other programme. Since my dad's fractured wrist is not 100% ok yet (and he's started driving the Santro very recently), my assistance might be required if they wanna go out somewhere. So I shall check and post back shortly.

Warm regards,
Venkat

I believe everyone's going for the Munnar offroad to Kerala during those dates.

Isnt that what adds to the fun? It would be too boring if everything went like clockwork.

I will be there by 4.00pm.

@VSG.... Please do come for more meets before serving up -ve opinions. We do need some drawbacks and @#$ups. A drive is a big part of almost every meet. Most of us enjoy driving or being driven in a friend's car. I am sure you must too.

Speaking of drives, we need to do another pondy drive, this time with 4x4s and Arka, maybe before Feb end.
