Wowie what an interesting thread !!
The first car I drove was dear dad's white 1959 Fiat 1100 "Select" MRW 5248.
The first car I owned was a 1987 red Maruti 800 BLB 2032. She was beautiful. Bought used, but she had leather seats, a sony deck, A/C the works. Got her in 1994.
She was followed by MH 04 AC 2185 a white Maruti 800 in 1997.
Then came MH 01 CA 5344, my silver Wagon R, in 2000.
Then my current babe, the 2007 white Swift MH 01 AC 4579.
And finally my 'newest' - MRX 6839 my black 1962 Fiat "Super Select".
