I was in two minds whether to post this or not but before things go worse... I am sorry to have not controlled a situation which has encouraged some not so pleasant (in my perspective) comments in Person and in the Forum. I would appreciate if these comments could be kept out.

My word, this will not happen again !!

What situation? What comments? Who are the protagonists? And what will not happen again? Looks like I am actually quite the mushroom that I always thought I was - kept in the dark and fed with a lot of bull's excreta and generally knows nothing about what's going on !!
By the way, Abhishek - I think some of your pics are simply superb and award winning quality. Like the red and white one and the inverted glasses one. Please PM the link to your website. Looks like I have lost it.

Whatever happened to the group pics that were taken towards the end of the meet? Wasn't it taken on Planet's camera? Looking forward to it. Please post it up - whoever has it.

Dada, y the "cheap Guest"

anyways, we had a micro mini meet with Shivd, Fatal Error and myself at Someplace Else at the Park. Thanks guys for coming over and making this an enjoyable evening!

the highlight of the evening (even better than the booze!) was the insane drive in Shuvd's mad mad Octi petrol turbo- Stage 2 mods, 225 BHP- man! that baby moves..... pity about the Kolkat atraffic and roads though. this baby needs the mean streets of delhi to really show its mettle.

thanks guys for this wonderful evening.....appreciate it!

It belongs to Avanish. I presume I spelled that correctly. Fatalerror can throw some error message if I didnt.

We both had a good time on Belghoria Expressway. Man that road and the drive was awesome. Hope the roads stay like that for a long long time.

sorry about the really early reply... it was an amazing meet.. Thanks Daktar babu and all those who took part in organizing it!!! We all had a very nice and relaxed sunday thanks to your untiring efforts!!
Couple of the best moments of the picnic for me, were proably the sight of 12-15 cars lined up on the highway, brilliant conversations with superbly experienced and knowledgable people, the FOOD, beer&baganbari, shuvd's innate ability to entertain once tanked up, ..... and the list goes on!!
Looking forward to the next meet...


P.S. New alipore meet should be planned soon enough!!!

@ Bonobashi & Tuhin Sir : Yes the "Gullwing" was indeed a 1954 but then who cares if it was a 1934 or 1954 as it was one damn fine car and I'am sure everyone will admit it's one of the most beautiful Mercs ever made.

My question was about cars before 1930. So the Gullwing didn't qualify. Lovely car, though. Back to topic before Daktar Babu gets annoyed.

I think it's said in jest and basically to mock the soft Bengali pronunciation of the word "chief". I don't think planet meant any serious insult. Just a joke I guess.

Who cares? There was a war in the intervening period. There was a distinct shift betwee cars ahead of the war from the cars post-war. Anyway, I am commenting without knowing the context of the discussion.
