Cyrus, looks like I now have to change my Team-BHP id from "PRESIDENT" to something else. Off late, everyone seems to be associating it irrelevantly.

Roni bhai's coaching has worked wonders on me

Shyam has already posted a pic of the PRESIDENTs meter.
Now you run down to your LHD and check out the meter on it which is an identical DELIGHT meter.

You want the President speedo ? But Roni said the temp gauge in it is not original. Of course the dealer said he can get an original fitted. Tell me if you really want it, I can get it !!

Cyrus, Behrambhai must be bashing you up (i hope he does not spare you) for asking the difference between a President and a Delite meter.
Behrambhai after you have finished with him can all members of the FCCCI have a go at him too? Please

Arre, i thought the President meters were round too. One always learns you know!! I honestly didnt know about the President's console.

Edit:Nice awatar.

Seeing these blue dialled 64-65 speedos and meters of the Fiat 1100D after a long long time. look at that guy. The plasticky steering is a disaster!
These blue dials very soon became black(Yenkay) by 1966 as shown in the picture below the President's white dial.The steering in the black dial meters' car bears the PAL logo whereas it was originally Fiat and only Fiat till the President in 1972!

cyrus, saw your 1100 at the AUTOCAR show. HORMADZ SORABJEE had some uninspiring words to say though. but the car looked great.
