Danny will also join us. (in my car) We might not stay there for long time as we both have some (Different) work, but we will come.

With the current recession in scrap metal prices, coupled with the influx of cabs being scrapped (almost 15-20 everyday only at chor bazaar, CST rd and others extra), prices for these cars have dropped after touching a high of around 35k a couple of months back to a petty 15-17k. Keep your eyes open for some very nice original cabs being broken, either to rescue or salvage.

Default FCCCI Drive 7th Dec 08 to Bhiwandi (Schedule)

The response so far, for the drive/rally to Bhiwandi is really encouraging and this one may turn out to be another FCCCI MEGA DRIVE after the one we had at Flora Fountain.
And, now that we have this positive confirmation from majority of the members already, can we start a re-confirmation list for Anil Jain to make provisions for the FIAT crazy members participating.
The plan is to meet up at the end of the Dadar - Sion flyover (before Priyadarshani) between 1015 - 1030 am and depart for Bhiwandi soon, thereafter. We may have to pick up Adheesh after the Mulund Toll Naka enroute and further proceed towards Thane Toll Naka (after the three Flyovers) where we meet up with Anil who will take us to the destination which is 10 minutes from there.
So guys, please start tuning up and polishing all your beauties and
re-confirm your attendance for this wonderful event.

1. Rony, Rohan and (Karl - Tentative) - 2 FIATS
2.

Rupesh, we should be there between 1100 to 1115 am. See if you can co-ordinate with Thane guys (incl. Adheesh) and be ready with them after the Mulund Toll Naka.
We should pit stop there for some time to check radiator water levels in our babies(ancient style!) and until everyones gathered for the last run to Bhiwandi thereafter.

@Subhash, Kiran and Pune guys: We need your confirmations please.
@Karl. Could you please check with Harit as well, if he is joining?
@Cyrus and Ravi: Please try to get in touch with ALL your contacts and re-confirm. And Cyrus how can we forget Anil Jain's name on your confirmation list?

I will be simultaneously checking with Feroze Mehta, Hormusji Cama, Marespand, Jimmy Marker, Mr Naik, Solanki's and Fali Dhondi.

Looks like we're going to have a blast all over again !
Guys, what happens when a taxi gets cancelled ? Can one convert it to a private vehicle ? How easy / difficult is that ? Does one get a new number ?!?
More importantly, how advisable is all this ?
Advice needed urgently, as a sweet looking Delight taxi is waiting in the wings.

Its difficult converting a taxi into a private car. But, it can be done. Also, please salvage as many parts as possible from this Delite. Also, Pics please.
