Mr. Peter Travasso's 1919 Fiat. His father bought this in 1930 for Rs. 300/- and the car is close to his heart since Peter was born the same year. This car was driven by Peter's son from Bombay and it took them 10 hours of a flawless drive to make it here. The car is still registered in the name of Peter's father.

Peter and his son with the car:



Watch closely:







Accelerator in the center, clutch on the left and brake on the right. Handbrake and gear shifts to the right.


No doors on the RHS.









Numero Uno for the Best car !!!

we flagged peter off from bombay at 10 30am yesterday...he reached khopoli at 5! finally reached pune at 945....they were soaked to the bone, (remember, the car has no weather protection) endured some TERRIBLE weather, but came with enthusiasm missing in some 18yr olds...hats off to our dearest peter, and his fabulously maintained fiat...

No probs buddy. We know how difficult it is to organise an event as big as this. cheers to you and the organizers and to the future of FCCC.

And hats off to Mr. Peter, who is so much of enthusiasm!

@karl
was this Mr badamikar's fiat was snapped up at Mehendale garage/ Manohar mangal karyalay ?? Today, coming back from work, i saw two vintages at the same place - couldnt take any pics as i was driving.
BTW i guess owners of Manohar Karyalay ( or may be Mr. Badamikar ) have a good collection of vintage cars

Karl,
Pics. look gr8! How I wish I cud've seen it all in person! :-(

Glad to see atleast my car took part tho!

Interesting to know abt the sables' '61 fiat..btw, tats from AP (I think APJ is Vizag but not sure)....do they live in pune or did they drive down from south?

And btw, abt Col. Chakravarthy's car- if its a '75 Fiat, how come its got a President grille/badge? I thot those wer made only for a year?

Oh, n forgot to ask- is tat red Beetle Nasir's?? He had one of the same colour...
