No offense, but tbhp meets are way more fun, whether one comes in mercs or a local train
I am sure that the points will be taken into consideration when planning events in future. This was the first time that there were so many participants with cars, in the past the numbers were smaller. So some degree of being over whelmed did happen. I am sure that suggestions and criticisms will help to improve. For me the good part was that the food was good, the company enjoyable, and no car broke down.

I would strongly suggest that those present introduce each other, the organisers should make that a part of the program. I knew a lot of people and got around, but I did not know Vikram, that he was present and so we could not get to know each other and talk. Maybe others observed the same.

Cheers harit

A suggestion here.

What the guys in charge should do. Mail the route to all participants in advance, ensure secure parking space, and for dinner, lunch or whatever, book a small private room so that everyone can relax and chat with fellow enthusiasts.

When Aniruddh can co ordinate with the group and seamlessly organize our long distance drives, the members of this club should be able to do the same? Next time , please collect payment in advance. Along with confirmation, cheques should be enclosed.

If my posts are easier to read, being split into paragraphs, Rehaan is to be thanked and given credit for teaching me.

Recently I saw a W 115 being restored. This car was parked at the seashore and virtually split into two.
Now the body is in one piece, but there is still a long way to go. This project is different in the sense that someone would have got another car and replaced the body, here the original body is being rebuilt.
Flooring has been coated with fibreglass, helps against corrosion.

Cheers harit

This piece about the Club appeared in 2002, and shows a pair of 170Vs. The car in the foreground was subsequently painted maroon and black like the car in the back ground. The car in the background, however, is now cream and brown.
