The Select either doesn't have any stickers that we could refer to, however, I am attaching an unrestored picture of the engine bay (as is where is) here for your reference.

And Yes Manish, you are right. These cars are preserved with immense care, but at the end of the day, it is all well worth it.

When everything is completed, I shall post pictures for your viewing pleasure.
And, sorry, but there are no stickers left here, on any of the fittings that can be pictured or referrred.
Believe me, every night is sleepless till restoration of this baby is completed and all this is going really slow as I can spare very little time once or twice a week amongst other daily routines.
Hello Mr. President,

Is the item circle in RED the original FIAT Tool box?

Hi! Is there a pun on the word "seems"?
Yes, many had fun, but almost all complained about the heat. And we all had a bit of luck as the sky was cloudy in the morning, delaying the heat.
There were some nice cars, but remove the organisers cars, the cars which did not come and those which really had no business to be there, like a 7 series, or the Copiana (please do NOT ask what that is, tooooooo embarassing), the list gets smaller. And the list of bikes was pathetic.
The other fun we had was the dinner, all of us cramped in a room, and the food where the bones in the non-veg dishes were larger than the meat.
I believe in a principle, when you host a party, do not offer what you would not like to have. When ordering food, I always ask for boneless, spend a few rupees more and offer that.
There were speeches by some WIAA guys, they will make Mumbai a major event, increase participation, that is certainly possible once the game of playing politics stops.
And the prizes. How and why can you give prizes to cars that do not run the entire route? Am I missing something here?
Yes, we had fun, a lot of us met up and bonded, enjoying car talk and gossip. At the end of the day, we can sum up the event as follows, we met like minded folks, we had a drive, we entertained public, we had dinner together, and we all got 2 bottles of Vedica water.
We look forward to the next event, again in April in 2011?

Cheers harit

Well i havn't heard much but by seing pics it "seemed" that you guys had fun.

Politics is something that is present in all spheres of life so we either have to take a stand or we just learn to live with it. Honestly speaking it really doesn't matter so long as you enjoyed it and did it for the fun of it and not for the prizes.

Good luck for the events coming up.

By the way what cars did you enter this year ? Kindly let us know.
