Father's
1968 Vespa - bought new, sold in 1975
1970 Fiat 1100 - bought in 1973, sold 1980 (held and learned steering the first time in this car)
1969 Amby M2 - bought in 1983, sold in 1985

In the family, my grandfather and uncles used to have Herald, Peugeot, FIATs and Ambys. My uncles used to be big time bikers, I recall getting a reverse hit from one of the bullets. A diesel conversion on the bullet used to be a big thing in Kerala then. There was an early 80's Honda 173cc 4 stroke bike as well.

Mine
1998 Splendour - bought new, sold in 2000
1993 Maruti 800 DX - bought in 2000, sold in 2001
2000 Ford Ikon 1.6 RallySport - bought in 2000, sold in 2001
1997 Gypsy King 413W Softtop - bought in 2001, sold in 2003
1996 Esteem 1.3 VX - bought in 2002, sold in 2006
2003 FIAT Plaio 1.6 GTX - bought new, sold in 2007
2006 FIAT 1.6 Adventure - bought new, my daily drive

In mid-90's I used a Yamaha RX100 for an year, though I was only safe keeping for a friend. They dont make friends like that anymore :-)

premier padmini 138D
MM540 DP 2WD

Maruti 800 MPFI 40BHP(before maruti detuned it to make way for the alto)
Zen Diesel- this girl was quick!! and easy on the wallet
