Pre-worshipped: A car that's almost new, but not brand new.
Run very few miles.
Maintained like a vintage/classic car from new.
Always garaged aka Garage queen.
Never abused.
Treated like a baby.
No non-factory modifications.

Get the drift?

Sounds like a local garage jargon if you ask me.
PS : You must know the "local" term for FFE / aftermarket 'loud' muffler , right ?

Pre-worshipped and garage queen terms, I first read on American sites.
Not sure about it, but I think it's the americans who came up with the term.

My assortment
Toyota Fortuner for sure- to be the BOSS on the road- pre worshipped at say 15 lacs maybe
Pre-worshipped Honda Accord, 12lacs or even a new ANHC at 11 lacs.
Left with 3 lacs, will like a i-10 or maybe add 1 more and get a new i-10

Nice Topic. Voted for option C as interestingly i already own the following cocktail of cars:

1. Pre worshipped Octavia vRS (7 lakhs) : mind blowing performance on expressways, not so great in city because of the turbo lag, skoda is a prestigious badge in india, has almost every feature i desire, but catches too much attention which sometimes is unwanted as it's in sporty yellow!

2. Palio Stile 1.6 sports (4.6 lakhs) in black: amazing almost everywhere; though not as fast as vRS, provides better driving experience because of powerful n/a engine, lot more steering feedback and telepathic handling, compact and great in city traffic, can travel very fast but also discreetly.

3. Tata Safari GX 4x4 (12 lakhs): serves for outstation trips on rough roads and off roading. Also, great to be chauffeured around in because of acres of space and supreme comfort.

4. Balance 6-7 lakhs: Already planning to use them on down payment for R1/Blade within next few months!

I'd go buy my self a Harley Fat Boy and a brand new Chevy Cruze or a Honda Civic. Harley makes the ideal crusier bike . Cruze and Civic , as we all know , are two very good family sedans . So either of them will do .

I opt C, so that I can have a mixed set of vehicles suitable for different situations.

1) Chevy CRUZE (White) - 14 L (approx) (Personal use & those special outings with wify and daughter)

2) Scorpio (White) - 10 L (Family outings(mine is a joint family, so a 8 seater) , Long Highway runs & "Mover & packer")

3) Swift - VDi (White) - 6 L (For my wife) [The only car which will give me some good FE out of the 3]

Aaaaaaaaahhhh...Love my garage. All white sparkling beauties...in their own class. Somehow, all of them are dieselites. Nice!!! I did not plan this...it just happened.

Gosh! I will have to spend some bucks on maintaining the WHITE sparkle on all of these.

What say guys!

I almost missed...I will add another 1 L and buy a brand new Karizma R (White obviously). Can't state a reason for this beauty; I just need it.

Another option for me:
1. Pre-worshiped Fortuner in white/black: 16 lacs (offroad and long drives)
2. New Honda Jazz: 8 lacs (Perfect car for wifey with full luxury and enough engine grunt)
3. Pre-worshiped Mitsubishi Cedia Sports:4.5 lacs (for track usage)
4. OHC Vtec: 2.5 lacs (purely for redlining it)
++++
Already existing cars:
1. Skoda vRS (for acceleration bursts and high speed aggressive driving)
2. Chevy Cruze (for highways usage and gobbling long distances)
3. i10 kappa (purely for city usage and heavy traffic)
4. Santro Xing (well sell off this car to add another 1 lac to get OHC vtec)

Wow i want this garage!

Default my choice

MY WISHLIST

1. pre-owned Mitsubishi Lancer OR pre-owned Octavia RS (5 L)
2. new Polo OR new Swift (6 L)
3. new Safari OR pre-owned Fortuner/Endeavour/Captiva (10 L)

That completes the range - Sedan + Hatchback + SUV

Looking at the petrol prices, will invest the remaining 9 L and use the interest income to pay for fuel...
