    When I came to Office today I was in for a Surprise.
    Saw a 1951 Red Fiat 500 "Topolino" in all its gleaming beauty. Let the pictures speak for themselves.

    The Door was open and did not seem to have a lock.


    The interiors were very clean.

    There was a backseat, however it was only suitable for kids below 5 years of age.

    The doors were suicidal and this was a convertible model.

    naah.! It was my boss who discovered that the door is unlocked and his idea (The guy in the third picture) to open the door and take a look at the interiors. :evilsmile

    Was going through this month's Autocar India and spotted this on pg 131.

    The article is about the classic and vintage car show Cartier Concurs d'Elegance. The car in this picture looks strikingly similar to the one in the above pics.

    So Adil of Zigwheels visited that building? You would have met him to ask why his team is not ready to give scores to Fiat cars in their site even though he is a die hard fiat fan. :evilsmile:

    Yes, the car belongs to Mr. Adil who is the head of Zigwheels which is a part of the Times group. I work at the Pune branch - Times Group. Zigwheels is on the top floor so dont really have much of an interaction. moreover, this is the First time he got his Fiat to office.
