Oh yeah this is the shot I screwed up and was not able to take my car in formation in time for the shot. But a lovely shot shows the evolution of the 1100. Cyrus must say your becoming a pro at photography.

I happen to also own a fiat (1980) and a morris minor 2 door. Just that my father doesn't let me touch them.

And I never leave a chance to meet die hard car aficionados.

The event was a great success. We had the perfect ingredients - nice cars, great company, good weather, and the perfect opportunity for the cars to stretch their legs on the expressway. Sameer Kadam and family were the perfect hosts, taking plenty of trouble to make us comfortable.

It was an honour to meet Mr. Merchant and here his tales of his Fiat 500 which he bought new. In 2006 he has undertaken a peace drive throughout India for three and a half months - the feat is truly incredible considering their combined age

It was especially nice of Fali Dhondhy to come from Lonavala to Bombay only to turn around back to Lonavala - just to give the Bombay boys company.

And lastly I got the perfect chance to test my Premier Padmini Special after shes had some mechanical work done. She moved well with no complaints.

Thanks again to all that made this possible - Rony, Cyrus, Sameer, Subhash and everyone else.

This is an unusual post, a blank with my watermark.
Actually, this is the back of a photo which says "First Fiat 1899". The interesting part is the stamp at the bottom, Publicity Dept. Premier Automobiles. This could mean that they have thrown out all their automobilia. The 1899 Fiat should be visible when one googles for it, but this stamp is priceless. What say, Fiat-ians?

Cheers harit

Nice pics guys. Great to know you had fun.
The ML looks like the elder brother of all these cars. You mess with them, you mess with me.

Dear Cartman- You are absolutely right, the ML is there for most fiat & the recent vintage rally event. Truly is the big brother support. Have seen it in action. You need to wait till you see the Big Daddy.

Yes, the ML is a wonderful 'escort car' for our babies..
In fact, the whole gang - Danny in his modded OHC, Speedy - ML, Gogi - modded Skoda were a great source of support and confidence throughout the trip - thanks guys, really appreciate !!
