Hehe Cyrus, FCCCI has postponed the meet, the Classic car drive was in keeping with a two weeks break from the FCCCI meets. So technically the third Sunday belongs to the classic cars . Ok enough of pulling your leg and i mean no offense to anyone.

I am interested in driveing the car just like Amol has mentioned . I get to drive the cars and thats more important. So 18th is with the FCCCI and the following Sunday is also with some Fiats .

HEHE. YEs, precisely. But this is only for this month as most of us are really tied up this weekend. So for this month, we shall have the meet on the 18th and then the Classic drive the week after.

As decided in the classic car drive thread we shall have the classic car drives on the 2nd and 4th sunday of every month. The first sunday shall be a limited no of classics with the Fiat club (mainly mine).

Awright. But why I made the post on the last page was that I wanted to keep the Identity of the FCCCI alive as an independent club and entity.

Spotted this Fiat Select in Devrukh, near Ratnagiri. This has been fitted with a 137D Diesel engine & the owner of car i.e. a garage owner is saying that its an original engine !!!
I don't know exactly that its a Select or Super Select but as there are no quarter glasses, I am saying that its a Select.

What year is it ? Select or SS would depend on that. Nice number plates.

Steering wheel is from a Maruti! I doubt if this one can even be scavenged for parts.

Arre no man ! Many Selects had their boots modified to have internal hinges a la SuperSelect !
Only the year of manufacture on the RC book will reveal all..

A great original 72 now joins the fleet, saved literally at the last minute from the scrappers. Original paint (mostly) and upholstry, unpatched body, long term ownership, most original fittings in place. It even has the ultra rare grooveless window rubbers and flat style door window channels in place, alongwith a period sunshade.

This is the rare late model Delight with one piece black faced meter and President style wheelcaps with FIAT script on them (I need a set, if anyone can help me).

The colour is the trademark and quaintly named Sardine Nimbus, a lovely period shade.

Ahhaaa!! So you've done it again!! I've even stopped bothering to count your cars (nee fiats!!)

Anyways, just before I saw the pics. I was wondering why another delight?? That too, a '72 model, but when I saw the pics. I really felt all admiration for the car! Congrats!

You sure did a good job in saving it from the scrappies! And it's remarkably OHH REE GEE NAL!! And let me guess- you're going to keep the paint! Hehe!

It's indeed a nice colour, you may remember that President I keep seeing in Sec'bad (AP 10 regn.) in the same colour. Incidentally, I remember someone in our old colony used to have a delight bought in the same year I think (they said it was in last quota) in the same colour, although they called it "sea-light green" Sold in 1997.
