Dear Subhash (Chakradhar) - I will be there with my 1964 Fiat MRY3112. I have already started getting the car ready (out of hibernation) and look forward to seeing many other Fiats as well (including yours)!

Last year also on 15 August, we were in Nivara. It is a wonderfully unique place. It has remained in my memory because it feels so peaceful to be there on a public holiday. Hats off to the wonderful and selfless work done by Nivara. I also look forward to meeting Mr.R.K.Laxman Sir!

Best regards,

Behram Dhabhar

Default FIAT Classic Car Club of India family completes 10 years of Cherishing Bonds

FIAT Classic Car Club of India family's journey in time for 10 years!!!

What a Pleasure... it just couldn't have been better...

Formed on 15th August 2004, its Truly been a dream turn true for all...

What started as an idea is a wonderful reality.... thanks to whole hearted participation from all FCCCI member families... From Doctors, Cost Accountants, Housewives, Bankers, Vintage Car Collectors, Rally and Moto Sport Experts, Armed Forces, Young Students, Businessmen, Engineers, Professionals FCCCI its true culmination of Anekataa mein Ekataa and blended excellence from Punjab to Bangaluru, from Kolkatta to Mumbai...

Ever since the First FIAT that came to India in 1905, there has been a long connect with the automobile and the families for generations together... Especially those born prior to 1980s have had a close iconic connection with FIATs... FIAT - First In All Times...

With a view to cherish the legacy and all the emotional attachments of the families with these charms on wheels, and also bring forth subtly the humane values preserved in our nation, FCCCI was born.

This is not a conventional club at all...

There is no President, No committee, No Structure... But a pure family of Like minded men and women with passion and values...

It began in Pune in 2004 and the movement has beautifully blossomed all around our nation with approximate 650+ hearts linked together closely...

FIAT, the company that began in 1899 is truly a very prestigious brand... FIAT indicating zest for pure quality ... No wonder the cars have been adored by many Royal Families and Choicest Owners over more than a century.

The motto of FIAT Classic Car Club of India family...Do accept the good things from present but also, don't consider old as obsolete... instead respect the past, take care of the legacy, try to learn the best from yester generations & have foundation for building your future...

Its such a wonderful thing that an inanimate Car has brought people together... And more so, in the last 10 years of our experience with FCCCI family all around India, each person connected has been a gem... bringing along with vision and affection of togetherness... age group 19 to 92 years young people...

The last 10 years have been an amazing oasis of experience for all of us... enriched our lives and bonds for lifetime...

Especially the unique Rallies organized by us citizen members honoring dedicated fraternities serving for our nation's well-being... including Armed Forces Family, Police Force family of India, Fire Fighters family, In respect of Dedicated Teachers of the Nation, Gratitude to Dignity of Labour, In honor of tall members of Judiciary of our country and many more...

Also very glad to have association of our family including very inspiring organizations including Pune Blind School, Armed Forces Paraplegic Rehabilitation Center, Empress Garden, David Sassoon Infirm Asylum for the Aged - Niwara family, BJ Medical Sassoon Hospital, Ruby Hall Hospital, Military Hospital Kirkee...

We gladly also shared our appreciation with the tall organizations for their consistent values shared and contribution to the field of Automobiles :
FIAT, TATA Group family, Mercedes Benz... the experiences have been Big cheers to each and every member of FCCCI family....

Big thanks to one and all connected with FCCCI family... and now, with the newer and newer members joining in... steering the club to tall future...

Our sincere thanks to all who made this journey possible.

And warm gratitude to elders - for the legacy shared that we all are so proud of... Very heartening to receive personal words of greetings from our Very own Respected President of India's office and Respected Governor of Maharashtra for this citizens initiative...

And of course, for our very own TEAM-BHP family, for fueling the Excellence in Auto Enthusiasts through your passion...


Cheers and God bless!

FIAT Classic Car Club of India family is truly Glad to have organized the wonderful cherishing moments of Independence Day 2014

FIAT Classic Car Club of India Citizens family celebrates Independence Day 2014 - A tribute to all the dedicated members from Journalist Fraternity of our nation - From Past to Present - who have put in their best contributions for our nation's well-being..

Flag Hoisting with Journalist fraternity at renowned Pune Shramik Patrakar Sangh family... Sharing our gratitude from citizens for the positive contributions in well being of our country ...

Sharing greetings with Niwara - David Sassoon Infirm Asylum family - Sharing Independence Day Greetings with Grand Fathers and Grand Mothers staying there... Presenting Flowers and Balloons... rekindling childhood... taking the blessings for FCCCI as it completes 10 years...

Pay our floral tribute at Kesari Wada - Lokmanya Bal Gangadhar Tilak ji's statue... Salutes to all the Pre-Independence national leaders and Journalists.... for their courage and setting up the strongest base for positive powerful Journalism of our nation... Walk back in time to connect with our proud rich past - witnessing the treasure of our nation building heritage at Kesari Museum - the printing machine that Tilak ji purchased from London in late 19th century on which he himself composed the newspapers Kesari and Mharatta... Pleasure to share our respect shared with Mr Rohit Tilak ji of Kesari Mharatta trust pariwaar.

Celebrate Independence Day Celebration Ride via Ranade Institute of Journalism grooming value based Journalism education inducted by University of Pune... finally to reach

Saluting dedicated membesr of Post Independence Journalism - The very loved and respected, Icon of Post Independence Journalism having shared his unparalleled contribution to our nation's Democracy, Our very own RK Laxman ji .... RK Laxman uncle, the power of creative journalism, probably the only one of his caliber in Modern Global Journalism, who through his sheer genius and wit, protected and strengthened our nation's democracy so subtly... every person working in Polity, Administrative or Responsible positions kept on their toes to perform right... or else with his Wit and master strokes of Cartoons... Laxman ji's fine sense would catch those on the wrong foot - highlighting it for the whole nation... We are indeed humbled to share affection from all our nation's citizens family with RK Laxman uncle and Kamla aunty...

Special remembered our very own Homai Vyaarwala Aunty with whom FCCCI family shared personal bonds and blessings ... her passion for her FAMILY FIAT... unparalleled... Thanks to our very own Karl Bhote for carrying the legacy of passion ahead... the car in his caring hands...

Big thanks to our very own Behram Dhabar and Amol Nayak for specially coming from Mumbai to share the cherishing moments...!!!

The cherishing moments of last 10 years have indeed been truly memorable for our FIAT Classic Car Club of India family.

As you know every year right from inception of FCCCI in 2004, we are delighted to have celebrated the biggest festive days INDEPENDENCE DAY and REPUBLIC DAY in honor of dedicated members of fraternities that selflessly serve our nation.

An absolute pleasure to share a film on Independence Day Celebration by FCCCI for all our FCCCI family when we all citizen members of FCCCI from Pune, Mumbai, New Delhi, Aurangabad joined together to share our humble salutes to dedicated members of POLICE FORCE family of Bhaarat for their supreme contributions to our nation, to humanity.
