I saw a blue fiat (millicento i guess) in mint condition roaring down Kilpauk Garden Road on sunday morning. Was it there on the show ?

anyways, the red and white dodge looks superb and the fiat 125 looks stunning. any interior pictures??
Yes I had plans of converting it back to a wooden body but the first owner had no photographs of it and also had to drop the idea because of the cost involved.

Just asking, where there not some more fine cars like an Alfa, Chevy Impala convertible? I do not think that all cars present have been shown. Please show the remaining cars

That is right. When the owner told me he was there, I assumed that the cars were too. But was there not another run in Chennai? Too bad two clubs. The better cars of Chennai are noted by their absense!
