Arre baba, the rains will be here soon, and our Fiats will be sent packing.. Why not squeeze in a couple of drives before that ?
A chilled water bottle and / or a Large Mangola, is the way to go

And here is the Edited one.

@Ravi, we did the Classic Drive last weekend and we were literally burning up at 10am. If you do want to do a drive, Lets drive from dadar to Fountain and eat at Mondegars. Will do?

For the members of the Fiat Club. You should credit a man who has been using the car that I am putting pictures up of for the last 25 odd years. He drives the car everyday. And trust me the car is in better nic than most of mine _ hope I can see the day at his age have my cars at this level . He is 75 and can yet hit the shuttle and drive ...... Some day the club should honor him.
Enjoy the snaps.....of Mannu bhai's car

Amazingly kept car and indeed a very good example being a daily runner fiat. The full black color looks very classy on a fiat.

Have seen this car in Walkeshwar before. This is CCI's parking lot if I am not mistaken.
Kudos to the gentleman who takes care of this car, black is one of the most difficult color to maintain. Surprising well maintained Premier Padminis mostly I have seen are black in colour.
There are still some good Premier Padminis and NEs, in this coastal town.
