That makes the two of them wedding brokers???? Or is it, in the words of the Yeti, "Dilwale Braut Le Jaayenge?"

Back to the point - Nikki and JayD thank you for what you did!

I hope you were able to put the Bazooka to some use during the trip?

Thanks for everything STEER! hmm... We took few snaps with the new bazooooka.. but our priority was to get out of bangy and cover most of the distance before natural light falls off... so....don't expect much stuffs with the NEW one!! We are in the process of putting a detailed pictorial report now....

She looks too good! Can not believe that this is such an old car! Hats off to the previous owner for maintaining it like this.

I do not think so.

This car was spotted by Rudhra ( http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/post-1...ternoon-2.html).

And when he had mentioned that this one was up for sale, Steer jumped at it (http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/post-1...-steeroid.html ) all the way from Dubai!!!

It was all a hushed up deal, Bhai style!

Cool a speciality DEAL! YES... 'bhai' ishtyle!!

Can't find such a deal anywhere else in this world that happened & finished in seconds... http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/post-1...ml#post1064295
I truely appreciate Steeroid's love towards cars. But this deal was above all.. a clean team effort of real automobile enthusiasts! Jai Jai TEAMBHP!

Few days passed away... kochi tbhp-ians started talking each other to layout plans to bring this doll home... but everytime the plans were juz skidding away due to many reasons. Thatz when JayD told me that Vijay(prabhuav) is getting this babe till coimby to handover the same to him and then he is going to bring it home. We started making plans for a coimby trip and once in a chat session, I discussed our plans with Steer and took permission to take the Safari to coimby as a support vechicle! But then Safari didn't turnup in time.. its doing someother duty and is on its job!
So he made alternative plans and told us to go bangalore and get the babe as soon as possible.. Talked to Vijay and he said everything is ready including his scorpio as support car! huh!! Immediately got into the web and booked W/L 3A train tickets for three of us.. me, JayD & A S V I N. Learned that getting the tickets confirmed is doubtfull! Zakko came to rescue at this point of time and passed on his friend's number to me for any and all helps with Indian Railways! Spoke to him, the next day he rang me back saying the tickets are confirmed!! Now... another issue.. A S H V I N is backing out as he has some important isssues to sort out at home...
Anyways... me and jayD set off to catch the train and the rest is what you have already seen/read!!

Bit by bit report follows... stay tuned!!!

01/01/09 7:55PM, I was sitting in my house, casually watching TV, thinking i've got one more hour for the train, when suddenly my mom asks, don't u have a train to catch at 9:15??, That's when i realize, that the time is actually 9, and not 8!! My watch was wrong!!

Somehow make it to the station in ten minutes, and jump into the train. That's when i realized that i did not have a ticket with me, and nikki had booked a Ticket only from Alwaye!!. Anyways, left with no option but pray that the TTE comes after alwaye, But as luck would haave it, my compartment was the first one which he started to check!!

To be continued.....

Smile An eventfull day in Bangalore!

Train reached Cantonment station sharp at 10am and as directed by Vijay, we got down and settled down in a place waiting for the TRUCKO to come! JayD's cell phone battery was about to drain off due to the extensive usage inside the train for updates and GPS to find the location!
Indian Railways have been advanced so much that we got a power point soon to charge the battery of his cell.


Meantime Vijay called me to say that the day is no so good for him. He managed to break one of the ORVM of his neibhour's car as he wanted to remove that car to takeout the 'baby'. Anyways.. he proceeded to the garage with baby for a full checkup!
Had plans to fixup a reservoir for cooling system and change the H/L assemblies to another powerfull set. Mr.Gopal of rejected the request saying the job cannot be completed before the end of the day! ugh..!!!! hmm... things seemed tough at this moment...
still we were optimistic and trucko man Kumar gave a ring saying he has reached the station!! Now straight to the garage were the 'baby' is.!

Default Bangy saga continues..

The TRUCKO man took us to the GYM where Vijay goes for 'service'!! heh.. but by the time we reached the place, the guy was waiting for us revving the fiat!!! JayD got excited seeing the babe and hoped into it to give company for Vijay till garage.
We all drove straight to the garage to leave the babe for complete checkup!
