Guys, One more motor Club Started in Bangalore yesterday. Yamaha Enticer Club as there are huge fans for Yamaha Enticer and unfortunately Yamaha Stopped the production of this beautiful piece in India. it was in production in India for Just 2 and half years(2002-2005 mid) and touched many hearts many bought this pocket cruiser and still many wants to buy it. i have found a new space in T-BHP to write more about the bike and the club On behalf of my friend Arvind, Who took the initiative to form the Club. its in Motorbikes, Around the Corner, Team-BHP Forum.

Vintage Fiat cars

Some Fiat cars seen in Manjusha Car Museum in Dharmasthala. All these cars now belong to Dr. D. Veerendra Heggade, Dharmadhikari of Dharmasthala.

Soon FCB stickers will go on these Fiats.

Yes I have but I don't remember the number of times I have visited the museum.

During my last visit, I also visited their workshop. Its a huge shed just behind the Museum. Around four Vintage cars were being worked upon.

Nice to see these scans - if you have more of the other cars, do share.

The Topolino appears to be a choptop - and should be earlier than 1956.

I think what you saw was a Peugeot 202, which had this feature, the grille having a similar appearance to the topolino:

Oldtimer gallery. Cars. Peugeot 202.

Arun helped me get a Fiat Sunshade. Since, it doesnt need any modifications on the car to install it, I plan to use it on my S1 after getting it painted.

What is your opinion guys? Should I or should I not?

Ask MB to make a rendering of your car with the sunshade. According to me it may look a bit strange because S1 comes with the Air intake vents which make it look bold n sporty. So the sunshade may spoil the look of the car. Sunshade will surely suit the Padmini models prior to S1.

My opinion rest is upto you. Just be careful with my car.

It may sound but what I understand by sunshare is the one which is put above front windshild. (like spoiler in front ) . but Sujit what do you mean by Air intake vents in S1? Can you please explain.

Thanks,
Pradip.

Okay. My belief is it helps a lot to cut down sun rays entering the car. This could cut down the heat a bit. I am looking at practical advantages.

Moreover, YOUR car is being taken care too well dear. It stays indoor most of the times. Its a special car to me and use it only ocassionally.

This is unique in S1 and 137D's. Check attached picture. And yes, Sunshade is the one that appears over the windshield and will cut down on lot of sun rays entering the car from front.
