Wow very nice bro, she looks awesome with a fresh coat of paint. Can you put more detail pictures of the Italian bits. And also the roof lining which is original 50's stuff.

Haha! Easier would be for you to get one and plan a similar paint job

Such a strikingly pretty car! It is such a pleasure to see such a beautifully restored machine up and about on the roads. I do hope you can figure out the whitewalls on the tyres, they go so well with that white roof.

The blue lady had an extended drive last Sunday with a fellow BHP'ians in Coimbatore. We took to some roads less driven and it was a beautiful wet morning!

Let the pictures do the talking!

The first 2 weeks in December 2018 was my annual leave and I had decided to make proper use of my vacation. It started off with a trip to Ooty and Kotagiri in the blue lady.

It was a solo drive to Ooty and spent a couple of days there and then off to Kotagiri where my Parents joined in and it was another 3 days in there.

Was little skeptikal on how she would behave on the hills in regard to the engine temperature, but post the radiator cleaning after Mysore drive, it was a breeze!

Though not as peppy as my Super Select would be on the ghats, the Select was good in her own 'sober' style.

Just before the climb!

Fantabulous. Drool worthy as M00M so aptly puts it. Point your antennae to 28 degrees N, 77 degrees E to pick up my waves of envy and admiration. 'Neighbours envy, Owners pride' - the old Onida advt. :-)

Compliments to you for both maintaining it so well and for driving her regularly.

Thanks a ton V.Narayan.

In a few days after the return from Kotagiri, it was time for Karaikudi for the Vintage car show! This was the second year and was conducted very well this time too! Would love to go back again for the 2019 edition.

Waiting for the others to start the journey:

1960 Fiat 1100 Select: Ownership Log-1.jpg

Lunch stop at Dindigul Venu. The only relief we had by taking this route was the lunch in here! This route better be avoided due to the road conditions.

Some random pictures enroute

Reached the destination city well before sunset. Blue was definitely outnumbered in the hotel parking!

Some random shots from the event

Certificates and trophies for all the participants

We visited the Pilliyarpatti temple the next morning

Followed by a photo stop at the Raja palace in Kanaadukaathan

Started off from there around 1:30 PM and took the route via Trichy and reached Coimbatore around midnight!

All in all another fantastic trip of 750 odd kilometers in 3 days!

Spotted you this morning around 7.15 driving on Coimbatore -Salem highway. I was in a red Aspire heading back to Bangalore.
That's a nice section of 6 lane highway to do a lazy Sunday morning drive.
Fiat is looking neat
