I promise I would never sell my safari ever.

My vote would go to the Ford Escort 1300L which I owned in the UK from 1974 to 1976. Lovely gearbox, excellent handling, most forgiving.

My favorite vehicle I have owned in the past is Zen. I drove it like a man possessed and it never failed me anywhere.
My current favorite is ohc vtec. Gives you the adrenalin rush everytime you get it to its 7100 rpm. Also for sedate driving experince, I prefer contessa.

It has to be my 1996 Yezdi Classic.

Have done some crazy stuff with it. Nothing can beat the expirience of riding 250 cc of raw power.

The newly acquired Safari is good, but don't feel anything even when you are doing 120-130 withour helmets or glasses.

I love my current ride, Maruti Esteem '07 for all that we've been through. Be it driving in the city, highways, winding mountain roads, tall snow covered passes and water crossings. It's never let me down, but once I've let it down.

Next in line is my Indica V2 '02, for it's sheer road presence in city conditions. It's always been a pleasure bossing pesky autos/rickshaws and moronic car drivers. Also the fact that it's still going strong after 1.3 Lac Kms having been through some tough stretches. A real VFM vehicle.

Of course who can forget about the sweet M800 '98. Sweetest thing to drive in city IMHO. It felt so weird while giving it away in an exchange offer for the Estilo we bought. Still miss it big time.
