Sorry guys had to miss the meet as wanted to get a glimse of the cars before all and sundry started hounding the place. You know how difficult it gets to see cars in a crowd, leave alone get a decent pic of it without some poser in the background.
Lovely new inductees. Welcome aboard Sam Ghoda and Speedy.
Imi i always miss seeing your Spyder man!! Maybe next time. Lets make the next one a good biggie.

Karl, believe me.......my eyes popped out before yours when I saw this rare PRESIDENT grille wrongly on the Delight. But, Savin says he is going to take it off and fix the other original aluminium one that he has in spare.
AND.....NO.......NO....he does not want to part with this one at any cost.
However, I must mention here that he has got a wonderful Delight with a really Delighted Body and paint job.

Ravi, he is a Parsi gentleman from DPC with his single owned Super Select. A friend of Behram and I think his name is Mr. Okhla or something like that.
@Behram: Please correct me if I am wrong.

Aw man!! That is one defaced car!! Sad, very sad indeed!! 'wonder what kind of tail-lights he's going to fit.
If he doesnt want the original meter on btw, I know someone here who badly does!

BTW pavan anna, 12:45 pm sure seems a tad too early for midnight to arrive?

Porsche inspired MRF 7921 looks quite interesting.

Is it a Delite or a Padmini? Any engine-related tweaks on that car?

Hey guys,
I am typing this from the middle of Shimla where it is freezing cold..Maybe 5 degrees or so. But i was dying to see the rally pictures so managed to get hold of an internet connection. /the meet looks superb and looks like everyone had alot of fun. Cant wait to get behind the wheel again. BTW, i think i have found the BEST driving roads in india. Just to add, I found a Pontiac Silver Streak in Shimla and will post pictures of it in the other threads soon.

cya all when i come back, heading to manali tomorrow where it is -2 or something!! Maybe we can have a FCCCI meet there...

Kavesh - you don't have to ask, you are always welcome.

Rony - the gentleman who owns MRY3128 (mine is MRY3112) is Mr.Ruksha Kobla, he stays 3 buildings away from me and I have seen him using this car for as long as I can remember.

Best regards,

Behram Dhabhar

Default MRF6466 next steps

Dear all - as you know I acquired MRF6466 in September. The car is now transferred to my personal name and all papers have come from the RTO. This leads me to think - "should I start all over again?". What do you think? Do revert with your ideas / suggestions. Photographs are attached. The grille and steering wheel are already changed (originals are fitted). As this photograph was taken on the day I brought the car home, please ignore the grille and steering wheel.

Best regards,

Behram Dhabhar

Arre wah!! Gogi bhai, you seem to have even keener eyes than I do with noticing standard parts lately! Is this a hint of your interest steering towards them?

Pavan, could you try and get that off for me the next time, puh-lease??

Just found this lying around in my picture collection. Previously belonged to my friend Vinay, who is into restoring vintage & classic cars. In the last 15 years, he has owned/restored more than 20 beetles. The red convertible posted elsewhere in the forum was also restored by him.

This is a 1968 124, twin cam with webber. This photograph is from 2000/2001. The car is in the same condition with another friend.
