Smile I made it!

Hello BHPians,

I am Navtej from Kolkata and am 25 years old. Like you guys I am also a car enthusiast and was overwhelmed today on reading the mail subjected "Team-BHP Membership APPROVED!". After my share of trying to be a privileged member I finally made it. I am not sure if it is just me with the excitement but I bought the Team-BHP car stickers (Yes, I know that non members can buy them too) as a reward to become a member.

I am a Mechanical Engineer and a Master in Software Systems by qualification and work with an IT firm.

I currently live with my parents and these are the vehicles I have had in my life till date
>Fiat Premier Padmini - Sold around 1994
>Contessa Classic - Sold around 1996 (owned for 3 years)
>Maruti 800 - Sold in 2011 - Learnt to drive in this one
>Maruti WagonR VXI - Sold in Feb 2015 (Had this for 10 years) - This was my first daily mover - Absolutely loved it
>Toyota Etios - Bought in 2011 and is Dad's daily drive vehicle
>Ford Ikon 1.6 EXI - Bought this from by Uncle in January 2015 and now use this instead of the WagonR. The only reason to sell the WagonR was the "1.6" bit in the Ikon - Sheer power

I have ridden a number of bikes during college and thereafter but since my parents do not like the idea of owning a bike we do not have one.

I guess this is about it for my very first post. Hope to keep posting. Cheers.

Congratulations and welcome on board the best Indian automotive forum! A splendid intro to make your presence felt here.
Remember to read the rules and regulations before proceeding.

Oh, and about the Team bhp membership APPROVED email, it isn't for the faint hearted. I'm lucky not to have been hospitalised for having gone mad at seeing my membership approved.

Nice set of cars you have there. You must have that silly smile plastered on your face often, pushing the Ikon to its limits, right?

Have a pleasant stay!

that is so correct. Planning a trip around Kolkata within a couple of weeks, hope to put it to the test yet again.

Hi Navtej,

Welcome to Team-BHP. Good to have you here. That's a pretty decent list of cars you've got there. I've owned a few of them myself.

Trust you have gone through our posting rules.

See you on the forum.

Thanks Aditya. Your gallery looks great. I wish we had retained the contessa.

This has been mentioned by Turbo_asd as well. Yes, I have read the posting rules and the repeated reminder is scaring me. I hope I did not make a mistake yet.

Hello Navtej - I'll let you in on a secret: It's a real rush the first time you come to terms that you are a member here ! As you have surmised, this is without doubt the best forum of its kind in the country - and recently I saw that there is an international member too (Scuba from Serbia with a Tata Safari), so you are in august company!

Have a blast - the mods are great lot and do a commendable job in maintaining the quality of the forum. Yes, we all lose sleep occasionally, wondering if we are going to be cited for an infringement! But, all in all,
a fabulous forum for like-minded souls.
Regards,
Shashanka
