Maybe we can get him to reveal his cave he visits when trekking. We could hold a FCCCI meet there

Counting Ronnies, Karlji's yours and my cars, that would make it 10 minimum. Dont tell me there are not 10 more??

Plus these makes for minimum 20 Amol.

nahi yaar too much effort to climb up to caves, besides there can be no buffet there right? unless you organize one

WOW now just imagine all these cars and then all of Ronnies, Karls mine and yours plus all the spiders, 600's, Mr Mhetre's 500, Harit's Rudolph etc that came for the first big meet.

Boss we have one big blockbuster event on our charts.

We had 13 Cars when we had our meet at Fountain remember. But many cars never turned up there. What I would like will be single pictures. Not Group pictures. If someone could oblige....

@Cyrus, why don't you get into the galleries of the FCCCI team-bhpians and download the required pictures of our lovely and exclusive FIATS.

@Amol. AFAIK, we proudly have at least 45-50 very unique cars in FCCCI mumbai, so far, on record. VOW! Isn't that great?

How many ever members and cars there are, they are all the most beautiful, unique and best. We would like to avoid unnecessary competition and its consequesnces at FCCCI, that is, after all, the reason we started this wonderful movement.

As for pictures of our cars, this very thread is full of just that.

Very very well said.

We are all unique by ourselves in the club, with our own unique talents which instead need to be highlighted more than mere competition.
LONG LIVE FCCCI...........

On a recent trip in the south I saw this Fiat 1100R. They do not seem to be getting rare.

Cheers harit

Looks lovely ! I love the 'R", with its Italiano looks. The front particularly, looks like Alfa Romeos of yore.

That seems to be another OH REE G NAL 1100R that you have spotted.

That just goes to show how many more there could be, which we are not aware of.

Very nice car! Thanks for the pic, Harit.

I smell a rat are you trying to peddle off all our cars to some collector in Italy apparently there is a great demand for pre 64 Fiats there. Like that Hollywood movie gone in 60 seconds. HMMM!

This lovely and fully original blue and white select used to rest in a lane off grant road for several years. I tried and tried to buy it, but the obstinate old man didn't budge. After giving me the runaround for two whole years, he sold it off to someone else. He also had a Padmini, and a superb cream coloured Fiat 1500, all of which he sold to the same guy. Waiting for those cars to resurface someday..
I eventually bought MRX 6839, whose colour scheme was obviously inspired by this one !

Yes, that's the one, O encyclopedia !!
In retrospect I'm glad I didn't buy it. Quite a rust bucket, no ? The 1500 looks yummy, though !
