    Lovely sight as always when the fiats line-up like that :)

    I missed being there in person due to unavoidable circumstances, but was always there in spirit.

    Great show, friends!

    Since, Amogh has already mentioned the highlights of the day as spend by the TFI'ians on its anniversary celebration. There is nothing more to add into it but to thank personally once again for making this day BIG. To be honest, a night before I was bit doubtful if the turn out would be even 10 cars from Mumbai. Ratan, like always followed up with everyone by calling everyone around his area to make sure that they are aware of the plan and meeting point.

    Amogh and myself had requested Narendra Sharma (Product Manager - Grande Punto) and Aashish Bharadwaj (Product Manager - Linea) to join us for the meet. Since Aashish was travelling on the same day, so it was not possible for him to join, although he wanted to. I followed up with Narendra a night before the meet and told him about the plan, he was happy to hear about the meet and was pretty excited to meet all of us.

    This time I was one of the late comers and found 7-8 cars already standing there, I was bit relieved. Than comes the Ratan, Andy, Sai...and there after the car number were more than 18 to my count, wow! We left Mumbai at around 9:10, the idea was to take one more halt at Food Court (after the first toll on Expressway) and have breakfast. Amit (VahanPujari) and few more cars were to join us and they joined us at Food court. It was the gr8 sight at the exit of Food Court all cars lined up and had a photo shoot. Every other car passed by was sure J of us ;).

    Well, as we left food court it was decided to drive in line till Lion Point, Lonavala. But the traffic at Lonavala didn't allowed us. However, Mumbai team reached Lion Point and the sight was AWESOME!!!

    Rahul (Director saab) ;), Andy, Ratan...everyone started helping everyone to make cars stand in arch format and it was the brilliant sight to see. (Will upload the pictures soon). Meanwhile I got call from Narendra that he has reached Lonavala and should be reaching Lion Point in sometime. It was the gr8 sight of Yellow Palio 1.6 driven by Narendra himself, coming through the fogs and joined us.

    Well, the rest of the part has been told by Amogh so no point in repeating again. :)

    A BIG BIG THANKS TO EVERYONE, WHO MADE THIS DAY SO MEMORABLE FOR TFI

    Amogh, despite his bad health has gone out of his way to make sure the team and there family get best of the place and food. :clapping

    Can't thank enough to Narendra Sharma and his family for coming all the way to Lonavala and spending whole day with all of us. :p

    Filter coffee at wadeshwar - chandni chowk - express highway to lonavala - go up the hills to Lion Point with all the Punto's in line <<< Man, thats a dream drive.

    Amazing pics, driving alone is fun but it must be real fun to drive as part of a caravan. Hooked to this thread, post more pics please....


    Me to myself >> Make mental note to be part of next meet.:hit

    Excellent. Truly epic participation.

    I'm green with jealousy on seeing the kind of roads you get to drive on!

    And that full sleeve white shirt with the TFI logo looks cool too. Who is the TFIan wearing it?
