I went through it man. Amazing stuff. The three surviving greats of all time? Maybe the 800 will go out of production before it makes its way on to that list.

I thought the Amby was blessed with 'Eternal Life' (saaga varam, in tamil)

Oh yes! Had a ride on of them a couple of months back - and what a change!! The Amby has the best room - in the front or at the back - and gives a regal ride

Not a big deal, ain't it?
will go on and on till the world ends!
BTW, what about the 2012 facelift?
Nothing talked about since the initial batch of news.

Its really an amazing stuff. Should they add Fiat 1100D to the list again ??
I also think that after around more 20 years, they will be adding Tata Nano to the list.
