Memories from the past – a similar Car used by my travel group of four PII students in 1981 in Eindhoven (PII) Toyota Corolla 1974 2 Door Black color

Toyota Corolla 74 2Door Black used to be our car after white Fiat (which was donated to a scrap yard due to safety issues) in use by Myself, MAR, Ramesh and Weera for the year 1981. We used this car to travel across Europe and Netherlands during long weekends and summer, only once it required a service call to a workshop during one of the trips. Very reliable and trouble free.

Car used to be ready for travel anytime with camping gear such as a tent, gas cylinder with a burner top to make a small stove from it, some tools, maps and guide books from ANWB Eindhoven etc.

Institute was still known as PII not as EII in 1981.

names key:

1) myself == KHALID MAHMOOD (1981 Student from Karachi Pakistan)

2) MAR == Miguel Arjun Ramirez (1981 Student from Brazil)

3) Ramesh == Ramesh Bharadwaj (1981 Student from India, was resident in the same house as me)

4) Weera == Weera Singhe (1981 Student from Sri Lanka, was resident in the same house as me)

(Peter Wolf 1981 Student from Australia also lived in the same house in 1981 after Ramesh moved out to live in the neighbourhood but was not a member of our travel group of four. Ramesh occupied this attic unit on the top floor after I got upgraded to road side unit with a view which was on the middle floor by mother J. Iding).
