Hey folks I’m an ex-hyderabadi from Downunder visiting home after a few years. Its awesome to see all the new cars in India and other ‘all new’ models with a fresh sticker job. I haven’t been following this thread so forgive me if I seem a little daft.
But is there any meets coming up?
I’m particularly keen on 4WDing and thats how I spend most of my days in Australia, with my Pajero. I was wondering if any of you folk new of a 4WD club or anything like that here who I could tag along.
Cheers

Simple, You should have taken a sick leave as I did!
The pics of the Auto show will come up in the thread we already have for it. Since I am busy with the Auto Show, I will be posting the pics after Sunday!

Zen91, Ravvendra, furioussphinsk, Hillram, Suren181 & Pulsar56(me!) were the BHPians present today. There was another guy who claimed to be a BHPian but refused to share his handle! That counts as 7. Expecting more BHPians tomorrow and the regulars have decided to wear the T-BHP Hyd T-Shirts!

PS: Thanks to the D60, I am treated as press these days! LOL!

Suggestion: Keep this thread open in a separate tab all times and refresh every 5 minutes (during off-peak times) or every 10 seconds (peak time) and you will have a clear idea of the confusions we have until the last minute!

I should be there on Sunday, so would Pulsar56 and Hillram, perhaps Absynthguzler too.

Look for us at the Vintage car display by the Deccan Heritage Auto Assn. or by the stall of New Mars Enterprises - the one with a gleaming black 'Bug' Fiat and a Palio in a chequered motif on its side.

Cheers,

Er, sorry if I sound picky Ravveendra, but a *small* correction- that fiat aint a "bug" fiat...its a Fiat 1100, known (only in MH) as the "dukkar" (pig) fiat.

THIS is the "bug" fiat, nicknamed in the home-market as the Topolino (Mickey-mouse):

'had a real blast at the Expo today!!
Especially (or, honestly ONLY, as in my case! ) the Vintage/classic section turned out to be a real TREAT for starved classic gearheads like yours truly!
Just the right appetiser for the bigger event on 15th aug.
'went there with Suren after a um, brief! delay in the afternoon. BTW, who else had come today?
Hillram had already left by the time we reached, but we did meet pulsar56. I left by 5.30pm as I had an eye-checkup at Ramanthapur at 7.30, so was a long drive back.
Prabhu's NEW MARS stall, with suren's '57 fiat 1100 and a freshly done up Matchless bike was a real show-stealer.
'saw a few interesting other stalls as well, which sold car-care products.
planning to go for some tyre clean spray later.

Um...'can't comment much on the newer wheels present at the show though, as I didn't check those out much, sorry!

The others can fill us in on them I'm sure!

'also got quite a number of pics. I'd like to upload....tomorrow, as I'm totally worn-out for now!

Cheers!

It was awesome fun to be there at the show. Even though they were not too many exotics as i thought should have been there to make the show look international in real sense. Nevertheless, it was a reasonably well organized show with most of the regular eye candies present.

My pick of the show in order :-

1. White Rolls at the entrance

2. Indian Chief ( Motorcycle)

3. BMW 650i

4. Merc AMG63

5. Busa'

6. Monster Torque-01

These took my breathe away and some others were also equally good but for me the above were embedded in my mind. Iam planning to drop in for a short while between 11AM to 2PM.

Whooops, sorry Avi! That isn't a Rolls, that's a WOLSELEY, although the front shape can be misleading! Also the board bearing the vehicle details of that car was also in a rather obscure position so wasn't noticed by many.

To start with some teaser pics, here are a couple of them of said car:
