Sorry for being late in posting as my Net was not working.

Firstly sorry from both our side for making everyone wait for the Big Daddy and myself.

It was a fun event as usual even though most of the people had left, and the ones left behind were not dissapointed by The Gentle Giant.

@ Ravi 25th is the classic car drive and everyone is most welcome. We 35 invites out of which i assume 25 would turn up.

@ Amole quite agree we have some time before the monsoon so one more drive can be held.

@ Cyrus waiting to see the picture you and Ronni took of the Big Daddy with your car.

I guess you put it in overdrive taking pictures of both kinds of beauties .

Before i forget there is a 50's or 60's fiat similar to the Super Selcect or the Millicento at the scrap guy at Bandra Kurla corner. I dont know the exact road but it is when you turn in from BKC toward Shaman Mercedes. It is black and is standing on the right side of the road. There were three or four other fiats too but the Padmani kind. Hope this helps.

Thanks Danny / wife, Tejas, Immy, and Darayus for being an excellent support team.

Thanks Cyrus for the delicious sandwiches.

Thanks speedy, for a ride in the "Big Daddy" V-12 Merc. I mean, WOW !!

"The Mask" was truly scary .

The "Swift-Drift Girl" incident had us rattled for a while, but nevertheless !

Finally, Adheesh - the star of the day was your Baby - 4979. Never seen a Padmini like this one buddy - I could have driven her till the end of the earth !! Lovely !

Nice show guys.
Thankyou all of you for your generous compliments on my car. Believe me, this is not the end, 4979 has a lot of scope for improvement and this process is eternal.

Here is an extract from the Irani Chai blog.

Quote:
My father used to have his Italian Fiat 1959 model which he used to get in and come back to Leopold’s in. Sometimes if his car was spoilt I might come with him and we would get a bus ride, early in the morning, on the BEST as we call them and I’d come with him, spend the day. Since my house was close – just 1, 2 kilometres from Leopold’s I could walk back home but no I would wait for my father , until he had finished, and then leave with him.


Is this the same black Fiat that is almost always standing outside Leopold ?(sometimes replaced by a silver Prado)

You are right Speedy. I have seen this many months back in the scrap yard at CST road (thats what they call it). I had enquired, but the guy wasnt interested in selling it.

An ocean of Fiats. All in pristine condition. Looks like you guys had lot of fun. A Goa/Belgaum meet would get all the beauties together. Hope it happens soon. FCB and its cars would be happy to meet you all and your Fiats

Thats a shame he wont sell it but scrap it. What a jerk, cause the car looks savable to me. Somebody be me for a change and save the car. I would have done it as i wanted to get a fiat in a similar shape but i only like putting my attention to one baby at a time and the Big Daddy takes up more than i can chew for now. Will talk to the guys there and see, what can be done.

Sir,
The dates should obviously be before or after monsoon. What about May? I think it should be ideal for most of us. If you agree for May, I am sure all will follow you.

P.S: The thread created for this meet has been deleted by Mods as they don't allow specific car threads.
