    Good to see you on TFI and you are welcome on TFI. I paid around half a lakh for my S10 and expecting 60k expenses on restoration.

    It kind of blows the mind, how FIAT was so bold 12 yrs back with such cars. GTX/S10 were nothing less of Sports cars compared to other offerings in the market at that time, those 50-60 Bhps Honda & bla bla:D. It really gives a terrible feeling to see today's offerings.

    I am sure, It will be as fast as any other modern car on the road, congrats!!

    You got it Shri. The S10 disappeared from there and appeared in my parking.

    Late to reply. But Congratulations Kedar. You are really living your dream. Though the time and money spent for restoration will be huge. But then anything can be given away to fulfill our dreams.

    Kedar good going, keep it up. Just make sure you spend wisely and concentrate on the mechanical bits first. Exteriors should be your least priority at the moment. Please keep us posted about the development of your restoration. Very eager to see it in full glory.

    Update:

    Ravi, Pragal & myself had a detailed discussion about the restoration project and we decided that instead of spending money to repair/service the existing engine we will order a brand new engine which will cost around Rs. 55,000. :dance

    We worked on estimated expenses to service existing engine of my S10 (92,000 on odo) and it is around Rs. 30,000.

    So it is wise decision to get the brand new engine and not to worry for next 5-10 years. :up

    Now the Project is on hold and will start saving for new engine and few other things of the car.
