Arrey Cyrus, it is millecento, not millicento. And all 1100s are millecentos.

Thanks, Amol now my mom's become a bigger fan of five garden

Sorry was typing in a hurry while talking on the phone. I just gave an example of the body shape. I was inspired by the VJM rally fiat. The engines are not for sale, i would be useing it only, not buying it. I have to return the engine if i do ever want to sell the car. You would get Gypsy engines at Chor Bazaar.

@ Amol no good fiat is going to be used. I would get a body shell and work ground up. Any original meters or other things would be given to who ever needs them. The car would only have an original grill or at that point if i decide to get a wiremesh grill made for it.

Ohh.....thats great! Anyways (more OT! ) it doesnt matter to me where its from, if its a Saree I'd generally appreciate it!
Oh, and coming back to the topic, did Karl show her his own standard 10s? ('dont know anyone else among our crowd who has those, atleast not in Pune/Bbay.)

Yep, Karl showed her both the S10 and the SS10. She really enjoyed it.

Hey Cyrus count me in. I shall try and make it for sure. I have seen four fiats 55 to 67 ever since i got back. Two black, one white, one grey. I have taken pictures of the silver one at the garage but still have to load it from the camera to the comp.

, Granny and Grandpa enjoying the cars and enjoying their drive in the scorpio is great. Granny looks like she is going to spank you for making her stand in the sun. I wish them the best of health and to see them more at the meets.
