I think this very same Bus was photographed and posted elsewhere while being painted. If I remember correctly it was GDO registered.

Any other interesting sights and sounds? Goa never dissappoints.

Reminds me of the Fiat 600's we once owned. We had 3. 2 600's and a 600D (750cc engine).

Would you have any familiy photos with the car? Do you recall the regn numbers? Perhaps you could share them here

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/vintag...ly-s-cars.html

Also do you have any more pictures of the black Fiat 1100R you posted elsewhere?

There are some old photos in our family album. Still have to scan them.
The Fiat 1100R is in Panjim. I click some more snaps whenever I see it again. AFAIK there's also a grey one in margao.

Where to find the 1100R:

Opposite Don Bosco High School infront of the gate on the Market side. The owner of that FIAT owns a smal spares parts shop.

Or

Near the Fire Brigade Station Panaji, on the lane that goes towards Taleigao on the left hand side. The owner stays in that area. You cant miss it he parks on the road.

Hi.

There were about 5 to 6 1100R's in Mumbai. There was a white one which belonged to a family friend.
This car was originally imported by a foreign company which had their representative, an ex-pat living in Mumbai. He selected this car and not a Merc, because he was wrongly advised by a business assiciate to buy this car to ensure spares and maintainance. Actually, later it turned out that the assiciate himself had an old Merc and did not want this person to have a newer one. This really happened, the next car he got after 5 years was a 115.
This car went to this family friend. During a riot in Fountain the windshield was smashed. The Indian 1100 windshield was not a 1:1 replacement. Ultimately he sold the car, do not remember if he got the glass or not.
But this car was never really exciting.

That's exactly where I clicked the snaps. Maybe some of the Panjim BHPians can click some more snaps with the owners permission.

A pretty-in-pink Chevy is spotted here in Goa.

If I am correct this car belongs to a distant relative of mine who runs a hotel in Goa. It used to be lemon yellow in colour, I had seen it as a kid, and was featured in an Anil Kapoor movie 2-3 years back. Car has been in the family for donkeys years, possibly from new.

Absolutely right. I saw this car in Anjuna, Goa just a week ago and had the pleasure of meeting the owner - Faroukh - as well. The car is in immaculate condition.

A late 40s Chevy Fleetmaster is spotted in Goa. I think she has been featured earlier as well.
