It was a lot of fun, made many new friends. My first time ever at observing an event of such magnitude so closely.Makes other events look like ants!
Sam, thanks for the JBL hospitality ! and congrats on flawless planning and execution of the event.
TBHPians - it was great fun hanging out with you guys, post event dinner sessions were a blast.

So he just decided to carry it instead! Now the new Bass King is on his way to his throne and his beauties, accompanied by me.

And backstage : AARRRRR. I'm the angry looking thing on the Bass King's shirt. AARRRRR. (Bass King : Damn belt doesn't fit. AAARRRR).

And thus, a tribute to Shrivz, the Bass King.

Amazing pictures. Seeing those along with the videos just bring back sweet memories. It just sucks when it all ends. These are the times where you leave all your worries behind and let loose. Perfect stress buster the JBL Orange Party.

Fantastic show to say the least.Had a blast all the four day's.Was great to have the Lambo right next to our booth.Everyday in the morning i would pay her a visit before entering our booth.

However i guess the best moment was on the last day,when all the car's were leaving the enclosed area.It was a sight to behold.The GTR,TT,Bentley,Gallardo,C 63... all in one line through the narrow passage way inside.God that was surely the best sight i've ever seen,with all the car revving loud.It was really nasty.

Loved everytime i would rev the C 63 and the Lambo guys would follow!

@diesel hardrock: It was really nice to meet you in person too. The C63 was awesome and it surely overshadowed the M Class. It was fun chatting up with you and I will definately see you soon.

And here is the real monster of the trip for me:
The Autocar Show 2008 - Meet Thread report and pictures-dsc05128-large.jpg

The brave men with cojones of Carbonfibre who tamed the beast!

The Autocar Show 2008 - Meet Thread report and pictures-dsc05129-large.jpg

The Autocar Show 2008 - Meet Thread report and pictures-dsc05130-large.jpg

The beast

The Autocar Show 2008 - Meet Thread report and pictures-dsc05135-large.jpg

The Autocar Show 2008 - Meet Thread report and pictures-dsc05138-large.jpg

And the man himself!

The Autocar Show 2008 - Meet Thread report and pictures-dsc05149-large.jpg

Me & Iceman drove the car & trust me it was nothing but savage! The acceleration was brutal & the sound of the engine+wastegate+bov addictive!! She looks awesome after the paint job & moves like nothing else!

Sure there are a few niggles to sort out but from what we experienced in our brief drives, it's going to be a monster for sure! Good work Jitu!

We have a couple of videos of the car too. I'll post them up tomorrow after editing since during the drive quite a few flowery words were used to describe the car & its performance!

And for more experiences, ask the Pune boys! Amey was overheard telling one of the drivers to drive carefully since he had not even gotten married yet!!

And, this is what happens when you get stuck between two heavyweights!!

The best part of the show were the cars showcased by the engineering colleges. Tosee young people so active and enthusiastic in automobile engineering was a thrill.

There were many after Party events in different places every night.
Many had clicked pictures. Where're those?

Saturday night rocked like hell with us hopping from one place to the other. B&T as usual spilled his drinks and Ishan didn't know what on earth was going around him.
