We had a great time, I'm glad I could make it. Left Pune in my Fiat at 5:30 am, reached Bandra in exactly three hours including two short stops. Visibility was terrible for most of the way!

Wow, looks rather scary! BTW, I presume this is your MRW Fiat?

Nope, this is the green 57 seen in the previous pictures. While she looks shabby, the car is a good runner. Will be taking her to Mahabaleshwar at the end of the month too.

Hello!
Just to thank you historic car owners to have taken along a vintage car tourist too. Sitting in Karl's Fiat 1100 while speeding down an empty Marine Drive has been one of the best Bombay experiences for me, yet!
Grazie!

The Buick looks superb who owns it, has almost the same color combo as Kasli's Packard !

You guys need to have a a weekend gathering each weekend like they do Carz and Coffee in the US and then set off for a drive with whoever is interested !

As the last drive was cancelled. Thinking of another drive this sunday 25th Nov 2012. Meet at the same spot - the Bandra side of the sealink at 8.00 - 8.30 am & head for a cuppa coffee / Tea topped with enthusiasm.

Cheers
