Life is full of dreams and it's your self-confidence which helps you achieve it. I’ve had many such dreams and currently cherishing it and I’m in the progress of making it happen. I never believed in Love is blind until I bought a Fiat Punto without a TD back in May 2010, choose the colour even without seeing the colour in person. I knew that’s the car which is going to satisfy my needs even though naysayers where in plenty questioning about its service and reliability. The car loved me back and I have pampered it with same care. I choose the Punto because I loved the Fiat Palio especially in the Ferrari Red colour, I never had a chance to own one but had visited showroom umpteen times to ogle at Palio and the Adventure. I had entrusted Fiat so much because of the Palio and Adventure that I choose the Punto without a TD – that’s called blind love. Below are some pictures of your truly with a random Palio red colour at ISKON, Bangalore. Thanks to miniscule number of owners then we had several forums where I could interact with fellow owners and be part of several Fiat meets. One such meet was the South India meet which had cars from around 4 states including one state was Mods own country – Kerala. I chanced upon to see 2 S10’s in their full glory completely restored and just looking like they’ve rolled out of the showroom. Hearing the FFE and feeling the fresh paint I was elated and I believe many members who were present in the meet were as well. On the whole meet and during getting back to home we talked about S10 and Palio so much that I wanted to own one and it means my earlier dream could be fulfilled. The mighty S10 roar if anyone wants to loosen your purse strings I started looking for GTX’s and S10, but couldn’t find many which were not in good condition. I had TD’d couple of other cars within Chennai and all of them were not in good condition or the history was very bad that I choose to ignore. During casually browsing TBHP classifieds I found a fern green Palio GTX, second owner for a decent asking price in Bangalore. To my luck it was a TN registered car which means there wouldn’t be any re-registration hassles and additional work involved to make me drive it Chennai. I quickly spoke to the owner and he was selling it as per his parents wish – it seems this car was too fast for him. The car was currently in Bangalore and the pictures posted on TBHP were painting a good story. So I asked the owner to e-mail the interior pictures which also looked fine by me. Here are couple of interior snaps of the GTX which the then owner e-mailed me.
