Everyone wants to make a small car these days. Amongst the hopefuls is Bajaj whose autorickshaw extortion racket is obviously threatened by the Nano:

I love this SX4. The spoiler really spoils the look though.

Hey Steeroid,

Once again, Thanks a lot for the great pics and review of the auto expo. even the bike pics are too good. Truck pics of M.A.N and engine pics are just awsome

Regards,
Sajan.

Swift X-over is fine but what ever happened to the the cross over to sedan version? thats seems to be missing.

Our last visit was to the Vintage section. The original plan was to skip this as we were running out of time (for Excess & Surplus!) and Ishaan was bombarding us with calls and SMSs to get out.

Glad we went in because we saw stuff we wouldnt see elsewhere. Special thanks to Speedy who recognized Speedzak, came over and introduced himself before taking us on a personalized tour.

Lighting in this section was PATHETIC. Most of the cars were in the shadow and whatever light were there were pointed AT the spectators from behind the cars. You were always shooting against the light and Speedzak became my lightboy, using the Expo Guide to block out light against the lens. There were shadows on all the vehicles on display.

And then the man he steps right up to the microphone
And says at last just as the time bell rings
thank you goodnight now its time to go home
And he makes it fast with one more thing -
We are the sultans...
We are the sultans of swing!














Thank you, Delhi - for two wonderful days!
