Hey Johnson, this is great stuff indeed. To have a plan and to execute it with such precision is amazing. I just love what you have done to the steering and the seats really suit the color scheme of the car.

Originally registered in Bombay. Unknown regn. It then went to Pondicherry, in November 1972. Registered- "PYS/5775"

Throughout the Seventies, it shuttled between Pondicherry, Madras, and Bangalore. It came to Bombay again in 1981.

Reregistered, "MMU/5324". Another few years in Bombay, and Poona. A few months in Kolhapur as well. 4/5 trips to Mahabaleshwar as well. Then on to Nagpore, in 1984. Then to Jaipur, Jodhpur & New Delhi, in the late eighties.

Since 1992, the car has been stationed in Nagpur. Shame, I visit the car once a year. The rest goes in studying, researching about scientific stuff, in Poona.

That, was a rather brief introduction, of Betsie, our much loved 1100D PYS/5775. I shall create a seperate thread on her later.
