Re: Fiat 1100 Club - Bangalore [FCB]

What a lovely sight to see all these gleaming cars with shiny chrome embellishments and owners with beaming smiles.
I had a question, I have seen 1100Ds and Padminis with all sorts of wing mirrors, but havenít been able to figure out the actual design that came from the factory. Did these cars even have ORVMs from the factory?

Re: Fiat 1100 Club - Bangalore [FCB]

Seeing so many Fiats is a fantastic sight. Their owners and mechanics deserve kudos!!!

Fiat is at its finest with white walled tyres. In the 1990s, I was a huge Fiat enthusiast who would follow the car till it vanished from view on any route.

I'm always reminded that Fiats have better braking (big brake drums) and more steering play than Ambassadors.

Can anyone on the forum please help contact the owner of the Green 118NE? It seems the vehicle is shod with 175/70R13 tires. I am keen to know how the steering response and crispiness is with the wider width.

Re: Fiat 1100 Club - Bangalore [FCB]

OMG.

Became so nostalgic to see so many 1100 s, Padmini,118NE s.

My dad used to own 1962 model Fiat upto 1983. Then Premier padmini till 1996.Taking care of them like his children sometimes ignoring me & my sister ��.

Really loved to see all pics & felt immensely proud about fellow bhpians who kept these beautiful cars roadworthy.

Thanks आ ton for sharing.

Re: Fiat 1100 Club - Bangalore [FCB]

Fiat1100Club - Bangalore's 14th anniversary meet today, held in Lalbagh, Bangalore. Around 30 Padminis, including Millecento, 118NE, and 137D turned out, apart from guest cars like the Ambassador Mark 1 and MM540. As usual, a couple of kids who were present did the cake cutting and also celebrated a fellow Fiatian's birthday. We headed to Eshanya Restaurant for lunch in a convoy. The food was too good. A day well spent with like-minded Fiatians.

Re: Fiat 1100 Club - Bangalore [FCB]

First of all, congratulations to everyone who owned these vehicles. This post evokes a strong sense of nostalgia within me. I fondly recall the great times spent with Padmini during my childhood. These vehicles appear to be in impeccable condition, and I admire those who have taken good care of them instead of disposing of them.

Re: Fiat 1100 Club - Bangalore [FCB]

My congratulations to the FCB members. They were endearing and very durable cars and virtually indestructible. My bua(paternal aunt) owned an 1100D from 1966 right upto the early nineties and we spent many summer vacations gallivanting about in it in Kolkata, including daily visits to the Anderson Club.

Wonderful days, wonderful era!
