Re: One year and experiences with 3 cars
Palio 1.6 as a first buy?
Straight into the deep end of things?
If you'd haggled around, eventually a TBHPian would have turned up at your doorstep. Not a lot of examples around, running examples even less so.
Dont worry. If the loans are finished off, and youre only paying for the Civic as of now, I'd say a fruitful one year. You've learned a bit, I'd say.
Enjoy the Civic. Forum's loaded with ownership and mod threads for it.

Re: One year and experiences with 3 cars
You, my friend, are a true petrol-head and more importantly an optimist. While some may call your decisions imprudent or naive, you got a damn good story out of everything. IMHO that is so much better than living a safe, boring existence, especially when you are young. We've all got to make our own mistakes to find our way in life.

However due to very less ground clearance i have scraped my car many times and during one trip to Ooty it got seriously bumped into ground too many times so I am getting the 'Coil Spring Suspension Spacers' and getting a skid plate underside to protect the engine and other vital components.
Thanks Ashwin for your appreciation. I truly enjoyed this process but managing finances is a different game altogether, but thanks for my wife's support who has been with me during my decisions.

The cars/bikes whom we have left but still miss them
Cars are not just a machine for us, they are a part of our family. They are the witness of many of our road trips, daily uses ,our happy moments and sorrow. For some reason we have left/ sold our old cars and have moved ahead. But still they knock at our memory lane and make us nostalgic. So why not a pictorial thread just as a tribute to them.
My 1st car ownership , a used 2011 RITZ VDI with ODO just 22000km.
She was with me from 2013 till 2015 ,total completed around 50000km. I miss the turbocharged DDIS engine.
My 2nd car , bought for my family, a used 2006 Honda city 1.4 exi with ODO at 52000. She was with me from 2013 till 2016 , completed around 88000km.I miss the note of her free flow exhaust ( end can muffler).

Re: Hyundai's touching 20th birthday ad, and a contest for Accent & Santro owners
Very touching ad indeed. Reminds me of both my rides from Fiat stable which were a part of the garage till very recently.
The first one was a 2000 Fiat Uno which was bought before I was born! So I was bought up alongside the very same ride. Years passed by, added another used Uno to our garage which served dad and grandpa well. We've done a whole lot of Road trips of which the biggest road trip of that time (sometime in 2006) was a road trip covering the whole of Karnataka (well, the most important cities) over a period of 7-days and over 4,000+ kms! So, I still have a lot of memories with my machine which is no more a part of my family. It was the memories with these machine which are priceless and I can't believe we sold our memories for a price which couldn't match up to the memories and the bond which we created over the years. The other one was a 2009 Fiat Linea which was also sold very recently. It's yet to be an year of separation. Have a whole lot of memories with this machine as well.
When I remember all those road trips and the memories with the rides, it just brings tears in my eyes. Wish I could revisit those moments of happiness. Here's a pic of the Italian Lady. I'll have to look a bit for the Uno's pic.
