I had spoken to jayD earlier today and questioned the wisdom of letting nikki's craaazy surgical skills deliver the baby.

Coimbatore Ahoy! We've reached coimby, finished dinner, now moving on. We've bid farewell to the support car a while,back, and must've reached half way back already!

Steer, there's reason to celebrate, we've got a mileage of 18kmpl, and that too in full free flow mode!

@abi, the pix will follow soon! Just need a proper net access!

Guys

Get me a working car in the garage - please dont combine Speed and Mileage runs in one trip!

Still, I must admit thats pretty impressive progress you're making.

We can set records later. Lets get a working car down first!

So the stunning Fiat is already made it to a right destination.

Steer you lucky man, enjoy the car, its one hell of a performer.

This car does not require a restoration for another 100 years.

NOTE: pls paint this at the back. "buri nazar wale, tera muh kala"
