Ladies and gentlemen,

The 3rd of May is the first Sunday of the month, scheduled for our regular Fiat Club meets. MRX 6839 is making her debut, I would love to be there. Besides, next month onwards the rains would start, we would not have a nice drive for a while then.

What is the plan, location, time etc? I shall make my travel plans accordingly.

Gogiji, hope you can join, long time no see. It would be fantastic if you bring your Fiat too, both similar colours side by side would make a great photo opportunity.

Lets make this a large meet and go out with a bang till spring time. Cheers!

Arre I think he meant "time for the Fiats to SPRING back !"
I'm all for Tangy Tomato, guys - missed it the last time. And any place that the foodie recommends is sure to be top of the line !!

Dear all - Cyrus is travelling and so am I but I think I should be back in Mumbai on the 3rd morning, so Darayus and I will come. Looking forward to our meet and seeing all the cars including MRX6839. 3 of my cars are parked outside Mumbai (MRY3112 is in Pune, BLL4919 and MH01YA3238 are in Nasik), MRF6466 is there but as usual it is not ready yet as I am not getting time. I'll try and see if I can get it though.

Best regards,

Behram Dhabhar

Default Mumbai to ....

Came across this group 78mm who organise trips to ladakh. You can drive with them or hire vehicles. Its a 15 day thingy dont have that much time. . Just sent me back to all our bhiwandi, kamshet and other trips.
How about in our Fiats ? I guess too much to expect from our special vehicles.
But we could organise may be a longer drive maybe over night.
But people hang on the weather is here to stay and not without MY CAR.

MILLECENTO FIAT che passione

Friends,
I am not sure if everyone knows about this site. A friend of mine told me about this Italian site with a lot of useful links. It has a section dedicated to the Premier Padmini too.

Ravi,
Don't be shy to show your dirty engine compartment, otherwise how can we appreciate it when it is all nicely done up!
I might suggest you paint the blue vertical rails behind the grill black and the checker board mud flaps seem to distract from the lines of the car.
1. Did you install new shocks on the front and back and if so what type?
2. Has your mechanic done any work on your rear springs requiring him to replace the rubber bushings for the bolt that secures the springs to the frame? If so can you check if he used the original rubber bushings or not. Sanjay couldn't find the originals and what he used i am not sure if they will loosen up.

Thought I would post what might be considered the "Royal Pair" of Fiat 1100s.
Can't wait to see them together!

Question; is my hood fiat chrome trim correct? I don't think so.
Wish I was able to get more history on the car to determine when and how they upgraded it with the deluxe trim. As I recall Karl had mentioned seeing another Fiat with the deluxe trim.

Also I am still hoping to find a set of molded rubber mats and the trunk or boot locking handle. Would suggest that if any quantity were found they should all be scooped up and I for one would be pleased to pay a premium for them. Calcutta is dry for Fiat parts.
