I was just experimenting with the new fiat logo in photoshop. The experiment was inspired by the big logo we saw at the last club meet. So I said, how nice would it be to have a club logo which looks like the new fiat logo!

BTW, I had no clue that a logo already existed. Thanks for the info sir. The old logo looks good. Where can I get one?

Would like to hear other members comment on my experiment.

Source: NDTV Website.
The weather office Tuesday sounded a cyclone alert for the coastal regions of south Gujarat and north Maharashtra, where it is expected to make a landfall in the early hours of Thursday.

It's likely to hit the coast of Maharashtra in the next 24 hrs and is now just 550 km away from South-southwest of Mumbai.

While the cyclone is likely to hit Surat in the wee hours of November 12 and right now it's 800 km away from Surat.

Yep. Saw this in the news. Poor Left Hand Drive is getting all wet and cold in the rains outside. :( Have removed the cover to prevent paint damage though.

Back from a short holiday abroad and was going through the pics.

Wow that was one spectacular event and I am sure everyone had a great time! I am looking forward to the 13th December event now. I hope more classic cars turn up then.

Default Fiat Elegant in Ratnagiri !!!!

Spotted this nicely restored Fiat Elegant in a small garage in Ratnagiri.
It is owned by a garage owner Mr. Shrikant Bapat, a 59 yrs old guy who bought the car from a second hand car dealer in Pune in 2002.
The car has many parts from Premier Padmini including wheels, wheel caps, steering & speedometer also.

Hmm, nice car. Original or not, it's heartening to see people using elegants as daily drive cars, in today's day and age. Keep it up, Mr. Bapat !

A reasonably complete car, needs few things to bring it back to full originality.

BTW, note the side-trims- I've seen very few (in fact only 1 other) elegants with these kind of side-trims. The last ones on the rear wings extend right upto the tail-lights, unlike the more common elegant trims.

Shyam, don't you think that these trims are locally adapted later on, very unusually? I strongly feel that these never came originally. Am sure that other gurus here will agree.

Nice car with a good body, though.

Note the small OH REE G NAL headlamps & rims. VOW!

On another note, I purchased a set of tubeless whitewalls for my Rover P5 with the narrow whitewalls from delhi, it seems they may also have the same for Fiats the quality of the tires is pretty good and the price for the 15" ones was Rs 3100/- Compare that with the 20K a piece for the Firestone ones. Ofcourse they are Chinese made brand name Ling Long.
