Smile Granted Intellectual Property!

Hello Esteemed members!

First I would thank the moderators for approving me.

I have been reading the forum since 2009. Have gained immense knowledge over the years. Tried getting myself in a few times but failed. Thus the communication was only one way.

As for me, I am from Kolkata. I have started working about 1.5-2 years back. I am self-employed.

As for my interest in cars.

I first learned to drive, had a license. Then about 1-2 years later learned to ride a cycle and a bike! Do I need to say more.

We always had a car. First it was a Landmaster, then Omni, Santro, City, Eon and now Zest.

I learned in Omni just before turning legal age to have a license right on attaining the required age!

Though that is not my first drive.
The first drive was the Landmaster in the garage!

Let me narrate briefly:

I remember when I was in class 4, I had the intense urge to drive `just a little`. We have a closed garage in our home. There is an inside access to the garage. I went and sat inside the car. Planned my moves.
The moves were:
a. Press the clutch, check the gear. Must be in neutral.
b. Start the engine.
c. Let it get heated a bit.
d. First will move back a bit then front.
e. Press the clutch `give back gear`.
f. Leave the clutch.
g. Now as I will `press the accelerator it will move slowly back`.

Cant go on any further as I guess you all have identified the mis-step!
The car vibrated vigorously and bang. The garage door was twisted.

We regularly go on highways. I have a few incidents to share. These are not travelogues. I will try and compile a post and share soon.

I will also share our Zest buying and peripheral experiences.

Thank you for reading.

A warm welcome to the team Techani! Hope you have a nice stay here. Don't forget to go through the rules section. Do share your experiences with the Zest as well as the pictures of your Land master.(if there's any)

Keep revving!
Regards

Thank you Aakarsh. I will definitely go through the rules and regulations.
Zest experience has been very good as of today. I will try and make a detailed post about it.

Sorry dont have any pictures of the Land master.

First and foremost, here's wishing you a warm welcome.

Ah well, straight to the point. The Landmaster -which year was yours? Did she still have the OE side valve engine running? The OE headlights were Lucas 700's- Made in England. Our '72 FIAT has a pair of those.

You being in Calcutta, I presume your car was registered WBE something? Incidentally, WBE 1362 is a very *special* 1955/56 Dodge Kingsway- with a family connection. Car in question still survives in Calcutta.

P.S: To the uninitiated, the Hindustan Landmaster was the precursor to the Ambassador. Was in production from 1954 to 1957ish. Pretty rare nowadays.

@Fintail, I am sorry for the late reply.
I am again sorry that I dont know much details about the parts of the car. I was too young. The car was sold quickly in the early 2000s, when the govt. planned to ban cars older than 15 years for the first time. There was a lot of confusion then, if I remember right.

But I can only confirm the registration part. Yes it was WBE.... .

Thank you.

Ha ha ha. welcome to the forum. Your thread reminded me of a mistake i did 15 years ago on my mom's car with near-similar results except it was an open parking and I got away with only a small impression on the bumper from a nearby stone!

PS: Whats the intellectual property reference? Can't get that really.

@Phamilyman,

The IP is the access right to this comminity. The user ID in this case.

BTW the stone saved your day.
