Few days back, I had spotted this RED car in the back lanes of Mazgaon. The mechanic did mention that this car belongs to some shooting people. On very same day I has spotted a yellow SWIFT convertible W&W model & had posted it in the respective thread.
I think the engine on this RED car is not original.

Raab rakha.

Had seen the blue car earlier with an MMH registration, which was probably the correct one.

Picnik with Fiat and Amby. Note the record player, must have surely been a novelty, like the cars

A 1955 Fiat Pick Up was for sale in prewarcar.com. It was sold so fast that decent size picture was no longer visible. Why not someone create one from a wreck?

Default FCCCI - Mumbai meet/drive to Cafe Mondegar, Sun - 29th April 2012 Pics

Another wonderfully spent FIATful Sunday.
All the 5 F's complied. (Fiats, Friends, Food, Fun & Fotos)

Sonu's 55 Millecento freshly out of restoration was welcomed and he was receiving a lot of appreciation and positive comments too from one and all around. That must have made his day, I'm sure!
We had a nice and pleasant drive followed by the usual FIATful interaction and the Food at Mondegars that was something to get us back there, more often.

Behram, Karl, Gogi, Adheesh, Srini, Feroze, Rutwij and the others who couldn't make it, were missed.
Our babies are now going to slip off into hibernation mode and we shall be meeting up for the monsoon drive next in our daily runners for a change.

Have been trying to post the pictures here but Google Chrome keeps crashing on uploading, so I will post them at the next oppurtunity after fixing the problem or from another computer.
Sorry for the anxious wait but am working on it.
Will request other members to post from their cams, in the meanwhile.

Nice pictures, Rony - keep 'em coming, guys !!

Had a nice meet - probably the last one with our Fiats, before the monsoon sets in. Though the weather Gods were unkind - today was probably one of the hottest days - we still had a great drive. I guess when you're driving your favourite car, the weather seems a few degrees cooler

Sonu - Brownie rocks ! We'll wait to see her with all the embellishments in place.
Gogi - we missed seeing Greenie !!

Meanwhile, here are a couple of pics.. All I managed.

Looks like you guys had a blast, sorry I missed it, but rest assured I was doing my bit in Pune Watch this space.

Ravi, you must explain to all the significance of the last picture - not everyone would remember 'BCMA', and how significant a place it is for us.

Yes Karl - You noticed it !!

"For those who came in late" - as the popular line goes.. BCMA aka "Bombay Cycle and Motor Agency" is literally the 'Maternity home' from where all our Fiats were delivered
The sole selling agents for Fiats / Premiers for a long time, this place is an epic landmark location for Fiat fans.
I can just imagine MRX 6839 freshly minted, driving down the ramp right here, all of fifty years ago. Sigh..

Meanwhile, here's another picture for nostalgia lovers:
