No Beemers, Merc, Ferrari, Lombargini/Super car owners in Pune? Not even one Audi?

Ok. Here are some pics from the previous tapri meet. Now looking forward to this pawana one. Hope the list grows even bigger. Where are all the usual suspects?

That's KPBhatt's Indigo.
Next Tapri Meet - Lonavala lunch anyone? 11th June Sunday-kpb.jpg

Here's Swanand's (?) Skoda - Look at the shine he's worked up on the body!
Next Tapri Meet - Lonavala lunch anyone? 11th June Sunday-swanand1.jpg

Here's the interiors! And one can see MX6's Ikon in the rvm!

Is there a McDonalds enroute where we can catch breakfast from??
With the past knowledge of road conditions its better to get a workhorse rather than the City or Civic.

Check this thread (Tata Nano : Test Drive & Review) out to know the road conditions. Quoting from the thread --

Quote:
Admittedly, I was very excited in the days leading up to the Nano drive. Coincidentally, around the same time, there was a trip planned to Pawna (15 kms from Lonavla, a hill station in Maharashtra). The Pawna country roads are suspension murderers and that, combined with the highway + expressway + ghat conditions, seemed to provide the perfect testing ground for the 2012 Nano. Thus, while everyone else chose their SUVs & MUVs for the trip, I picked the Nano. When I arrived at the designated starting point @ 10 p.m. on Friday night, the others looked at me in utter disbelief. People were rather vocal about their doubts on whether the li'l car could manage the nonexistent roads leading to the house. Well, our test Nano left the gang pleasantly surprised.
Hope that helps.

And Racer_X, there is no McDonalds enroute to Pavana dam.

A couple more threads detailing a ride to Pavana:

Thread 1. (A ride: Lonavla - Lion's Point - Pavana Dam)

Thread 2.

I won't be able to make it. Even to the tentative list. Enjoy all of you.

^^ on the Nano ,Honda & bad roads issue --

there is a reason why long wheel base vehicles scrp their bellies often compared to the short wheel based ones -- assuming both have similar gc .

btw I dont have any problems with the roads with my 31" tyres

I think I am going to stick to the work horse, had a torrid time on the Anmod road to Goa and not going to inflict any pain on my sweetheart City.

Worst case will jump into one of the SUV's at the last moment (get the hint )

Completely OT
@ RacerX -- all SUVs in Pune and PCMC are booked for election duty; jumping into them would definitely take you elsewhere instead of the meet

Yes. I do have high resolution pics of the same. Will mail you.

This time since the Landy is coming over, I'm going to take some exclusive pics of the same (if I do make it from tentative to confirmed list of attendees). I lost the pics that I took last time of the Landy (or may be am unable to search them out in my computer).

Nice one sir! Surely will not want to go to some "Mahasabha". Heard that they are paying 100 bucks per person in some regions

Aah, this tapri meet was next door to my place. of course, I wasnt living there then. But good to know its one of the options.
I intend to PM a few people out and get their confirmations either way. By early next week

I think and I think Amey has a Beemer.
We would have had a Jag but I am informed no one gives a second glance, so better that I bought a Nano. I am being repetitive. And digressing.

Aaila! 100 bucks per head. Or 3 smilies in a post.

Why are we seeing guardian in the tentative list? Please add yourself in the confirmed list. Admiral need to straighten some bends out of these winding roads. On the other hand, this has become a very long list after a very long time. Good to see so many people showing interest.
