BTW, i stay near Guruvayur, and will be driving to COK via: Guruvayur-Triprayar-Kodungaloor-COK. I think roads are better here than the NH. (dont know if NH 47 has been reapired as of now, but had bad experience some timme back.)

Don't get fooled by all those airbuses.
This is a strict Fiat nation. Buses, trucks, vans, cars etc used in the airport seems to be from Fiat.
I hope the belly shakers will compensate for that.

Sorry for going OT.
Turkey seems to be very far from Kuttanad at the moment.
Don't feel like committing now.

Have a blasting meet, guys!

No suspense- where are these surprise cars?
and in case you're wondering why I'm hoping drpull brings his palio, it's because I was sweeper in the D R I V E before the last, and the indica never went above 80, while the rest of the convoy disappeared down the horizon.

so as a general appeal- please make sure all cars in the convoy can travel comfortably at decent speeds(I'm not quoting any numbers here)

And I hope we remain as disciplined as we have always been, in convoy.

Your appeal is rejected. The D R I V E will feature two 1954 cars and one 1984. Dr. Pull can bring his Indica along - perhaps he will now forgive me for having bought a Tata vehicle.

In that case, I'm glad most of the day is being spent on the water and not on the road.
and what are you worried about- I have been hearing good things about the landmaster's power delivery in a straight line. or are we talking about another car?

Hi folks,

I was coordinating with my friend to track me while was driving around town with my GPS. It was a roaring success. I used that opportunity to check out the Finishing point. The place has enough parking space for about 20 - 25 cars and it was almost full.

The road leading to the place (before the 90 degree left turn) has space where you can park.

There was fairly good tourist activity!
