First Love is seldom forgotten.....and for car lovers it's even better, as we can re-live those moments often. .

1. Tata Seirra ( 1st baby 2nd hand ) - 06/06/1995
2. Tata Indica DLX ( 2nd baby 1st hand ) - 09/10/1999
2. Nissan Laurel ( 3rd baby 2nd hand ) - 10/09/2000
3. Mahindra Scorpio ( 4th baby 1st hand )- 03/03/2003
4. Tata Indica Turbo DLG ( 5th baby 1st hand ) - 09/09/2007

The fresh intoxication of leather is all-ways exciting.

Cheers

June 2001 - My first car - Indica DLS. Bought it after a lot of opposition from family members as they had heard horror stories about Tata Indica. Drove it for 4 years 80,000 kms and never did I face any major issues.

The first car that I bought with my own money was the Indica V2 (Black) in Oct 2001. Never had any problems with it. Sturdy yet sluggish being a diesel but then didnt mind that too much... more car per car

My Indica will be turning Six on 7th January 2008. Our pet (a Black Lab) also turned Six (albeit, months) on 13th December. As if to celebrate these two events, we made a trip to Goa last weekend with both our dears - Indica and Simba.

Tell you what, it was a smooth ride with both of them.

Before this thread completely goes out of hand, please remember that the thread is about your FIRST NEW CAR.

Kindly refrain from listing all cars or first used car. Just your first NEW CAR would do. Thank You - Mod Team.

I never owned a car until Aug 2007 when i bought my new Bolero SLE and became an OWNER. All these years i've always been a DRIVER which had its own advantages. People knew that I LOVE DRIVING and used to take my help for long distance driving. God only knows how many kms i have driven.
