Yes, though we havent done a real bombay drive in quite a while.
Keep an eye on the "Meets" section (within Shifting Gears), we are hoping to have a nice drive early Jan.

Oh my Gawd! That Dark Chocolate Cabriolet looks something. I especially love the way the roof and body have a subtle contrast going. A true thing of beauty this.

Where are the greens when you need them most

Thanks Samyak!


And Salty, a salut to your efforts on the 993. God Speed towards mint. She's a fast car, deserves to get there quick!

It was a good event, had fun, really liked amby valley as well. I was there the first day. When were you there?

Infact i see a sadarji in the picture who shared the same group as me. Too bad something went wrong with the turbo when we got to that portion of the event. I had gone with the intention of driving the turbo as I am looking for a car when i get back to india sometime end of next year, but in all after all this i am going to pass, i have something else totally wild in mind instead.

Default duhh

just realised.
Had I known that so many tbhpians were coming down for the pwrs, would have made a thread earlier so that we could have turned up on the same days. Would have been a good g2g.

Maybe the next time for any other roadshow we should try organise a get together.
