Default Excited to be onboard. Pappu Paas Hua!

Hey Guys,

So, if this post gets accepted and displayed, its the feeling of passing an exam!!

It took a while for Team BHP to authenticate me as a bonafide car lover. Jokes apart, glad to be in, to absorb and share whatever little I know about cars.

My name is Aditya Prabhu (yup, just what my handle says) and needless to say like all members I am a self confessed speeding enthusiast.

My prized possession is my inheritance of a 1965 Ford Corsair V4, which is also my current restoration project. My favourite car to drive for city conditions is an i10 Automatic (yes, you can park the damn thing anywhere).

For those office days I end up using my BMW F10 and for those weekends where i have to unwind after a week of slogging is where my C63 AMG comes to the rescue.

Yup, she is a beast , all of 6.3L V8, 450 HP (Un-tuned) and 0-60 in Less than 4.5 Sec.

Having said that, I am looking out for a 1965-70 Ford Mustang in just about any condition and would like to restore that from nuts to bolts all the way down till the final product.

Cheers and have a nice one!!

Welcome on board, Aditya!

Please go through the FAQs at the below link to familiarize yourself with the etiquette of posting on Team BHP:

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/faq.php

And please do post your reviews on each of the cars you own - as Girimajiananth rightly said, you do have a collection there!

And don't forget to post about your restoration project - I am sure there will be many eager eyes watching it once you start posting it!

Hey Girimajiananth,

Surely buddy. Will keep posting stuff as regularly as possible.

Hi Honeybee,

Etiquettes well noted.

My ford corsair is currently at 4s Auto in Tardeo awaiting parts that are being imported from UK. Will be starting to post the complete phase wise photos and document them. Will keep posting once we start stripping her down.

Welcome to the Team-BHP community Aditya. Good to have you on board.

Just out of curiosity, you mentioned the power figure of your C63 with "un-tuned" in brackets. Does that means some mods are in the pipeline? Will keep an eye on that thread whenever it goes live.

Lastly, good luck with your Ford Mustang hunt. Recently, I spotted this (Pics: Shelby GT500 Ford Mustang Cobra in Mumbai) in town and just couldn't believe my eyes!!! Thought you'd be interested

Hey S2, was it a Red one? If so, it belongs to a popular Bollywood actor.

No no. It looked exactly like the one from the 'Gone in 60 seconds' movie. This car belonged to BHPian insideman or to some of his acquaintance (if I'm not wrong). I'm not even talking about SAK's car.
