the list i just gave starts from late 1960's till date and my family still owns that very rear victoria ford and the mahindra 540dp for sentiment reasons...
the otheres suevived for me to drive till they died or were sold off...

well my uncles allowed me to drive from five-six years of age ofcourse with their supervision... by the time i was 9-10 years old i sould drive the vehicles all by myself.

and then on the affair just dint stop...
i even drove the later lorries not the steam powered and the mag wheeled one except those i drove all the other vehicles.....

cheers...

Wink My few ones

Well, looking at these long lists here, mine has been very short as the first car we bought was in 1999...

1) 1996 Zen LX [A used car bought and gifted to me by my brother on my birthday in 1999]

2) 2005 Indica DLS [My First car]

3] 2005 Exteem LXi [car for my wife]

4] 2007 Holden Barina [same as Indian Chevrolet Aveo]

Out of all of these, we disposed off the zen just before buying the Esteem in 2005. Indica and Esteem are still up and running fantastic in Gurgaon.

As in two wheelers...

1) 1993 Hero Hawk White&Red Combo {dont laugh pls - This was my first set of wheels and is still parked at my house in gurgaon}

2) 1997 Yezdi 250 DLX CII [sold off in 2002 for Rs 6k done 23000 kms]

3) 2002 Bullet 500 [sold off in 2007 on Ebay for Rs 39.5k done 12,000 kms]

Cedia is my current car.
