Everything was with clock work precision.The cars were finally flagged off by a senior army official and split in different directions to avoid disruptions to normal traffic from a big convoy and prevent inconvenience to other road users. Again a very thoughtful gesture by CCI.

One of the special note in the Contessa Club India is that there is no book of accounts - means "no money involved" in anything related to running the CCI as of now. Hats off Miyer.

Happy Diwali CCI!

But sadly, a Conty has landed today in Gujiri for breaking. Its time for you guys to befriend some guys in gujiri so that they too stock up some parts of Conty. Anybody looking for old parts can walk in to gujiri tomorrow morning at 6!

The Contessa Club meets at Bangalore-spm_a0340.jpg

Till around 2 months back, we Fiat Club Founders used to visit Gujiri daily at around 8pm to see if any Fiats there have some valuable parts. This helped us a lot as many in gujiri started to stock up many parts to cater to all Fiat Club guys. Even today if any of us(founders) walk in to gujiri, all those gujiri guys walk up to us offering parts!! Currently we have stopped temporarily going daily as they stock up enough parts without us going there regularly. We have actually educated them as to what parts we regularly need from gujiri.

Hello CCI. I was expecting the Founders of CCI to be present at the Fiat Club Meet. Only Sudhindra and Sudhir participated. Those guys had fun!

Hi,

Looks like you have taken my reply the other way round. Sorry if that was not in the right spirits.

My liking towards the Contessa goes back way back to 1998, when i wanted to own one, since i was just a student and could not afford one. Once i started earning (i.e., 1999), i always wanted to buy a ORIGINAL Contessa and keep it in Best of its shape, or i wanted to buy one in a Real Bad condition and do it up as a Ford Mustang, i had even gone and shopped online for loads of Mustang parts on the Ford website (spares almost costing a lac).

Just when i was about to realise that dream, i almost struck a deal on a Mustang Pony at a reasonable price, but eventually i got BUGGED

But deep inside me i still want to own the old school Conty, and who knows when its time, its Time......!

Default Workshop

Guys,
On Jan 26th Republic day, Conty Club India is conducting a technical workshop on Servo Braking System for Contessa cars.

Most contessa owners have experienced Spongy braking or brake failure in their cars. With brake parts getting rare to source, the workshop covers topics on how to maintain or replace the braking system.

My car had a leaking brake booster. Once this is fixed, it had a cascading effect on the engine too. Now my car runs smoother than earlier. To understand why and to know more please drop in to the session. This is followed by a Q&A session to understand your car better.

Please note that the attendees are not required to bring their contessa cars.

Regards,
Krishna.

Wow. Nice set of cars. I have always been a fan of the Contessa. More because it reminds me of Indias version of a Charger, GTO, Challenger or so on, with good mod potential to give it the muscle car look

The black one is my favourite

This is a nice idea Krishna and will help owners understand better the concepts.
Over here in FCCH,Shiva keeps giving us technical lessons in every meet and shares all his knowledge.This is what the clubs should do exactly....
