Even if they dont, I dont plan to change the number. Will try to work with AA and transfer the registration without changing the number. I think karlos the devil has a few ideas as well.
Else I always have my grandmother's KGF address with a birth certificate that proves that I was born in that part of the state.
I spent about 20 minutes on the phone convincing JayD that this is not going to be a retro-modern conversion like the Landy. The boy was pleading with me not to do anything to it, and I agree wholeheartedly.
Touching anything on this car will be sacrilege. Even if there are a couple of things that arent entirely original like the meters or the boot handle or the horn button, I will NOT be changing any of them. If it aint broke, dont fix it.
The Landy was different. It was bought with those modifications in mind, it was meant to be a daily drive. This one will be preserved and driven around very occassionally (in dry weather only) just to keep it in running shape.

Congrats Steeroid, upon becoming a fiat owner. I had checked the thread in the afternoon and then now, got blown away. Hopefully this one will put the smile back on your dad's face.
Don't tell him the price though. These old gentlemen can't fathom our craze, I still remember the look on my dad's face when he found out price of GV.

There are days when, amidst things going in different directions than intended, something comes up to bring up a smile on your face. Things that give a person hope, to go out there and take face the other stuff. Thanks, guys.
Steer, CONGRATS !

Congrats man! that's a great acquisition thank god you only had to pay and not fight a war to get her (i don't mean the ones we still have on the dining tables )
Neat, pro Fiat dudes will jus have
As far as the price goes, the discussion is only when you are thinking of buying not after. So ENJOY!

Rudra posted @ 14:08 and Steer finalises the deal by 14:22 . I don't know of anyone, except for a Team-BHPian, who'd buy a car this way. Congratulations Steer : I am sure that Fiat fanboys are ready to welcome you with open arms!
Butttttttttttttttttttttt there is YET ANOTHER not-so-easy-to-maintain car in your garage. A Tata Safari, an RD350, a WIP Landmaster, Jaguar S-Type and more!! Here's a certified glutton for punishment if I ever knew one.
