These were the only pics I took. Yes, the WV bus seems to be undergoing restoration. The garage was closed (Vijayadashami), so couldnt really get more details.

The extra roof on the NE...I too am not sure. My guess is they just put on top of it temporarily.

Fiat'ians, I have posted my Go Goa experience with my 118 NE on another thread. I ran into a problem on the way back to Bangalore and got it fixed by a mechanic. I have detailed the problem and its fix on the thread and looking for your comments and suggestions on it.

Please refer to posts 67, 68 and 69 on the thread https://www.team-bhp.com/forum/india...ml#post1511312


@ Behram sir: I am yet to post the pictures of the engine compartment of my 118 NE. I will do it without fail today on the other thread.

Attn. Bangalore boys!

Who remembers this outstanding 1100R? It was offered to me for sale a few years back. I think at the time (not sure) he wanted 1.5 lakhs - an absolute steal in todays terms. Where is she now? Catch her to participate in your club.

The same reason that I couldn't buy a mint Herald when I was just a student!

This one looks great! Can some one throw light on which year it was manufactured and what are the things different in this model compared to the others?

Karthik, are you planning to buy a 1100R now? Having acquired the last model of Padmini, now i guess you should buy this last model of 1100.

@Arun: No no.....the passion for these car's have already left a big hole in my pocket. I was just interested to know more details as it looks very different and I hadnt seen one like this

It appears to have some other carb altered. The original would be a Weber DCOE I think.

Couldn't buy it as I had no money. Simple. At the time it was a high price for a Fiat. The scenario has changed drastically today.

The details were forwarded to me by an acquaintance in South India who I haven't been in touch with for a while.
