Red face continuing my introduction

current career status -i am working towards the completion of my bachelors degree in mechanical engineering in mysore and i am hoping to get into a good university in uk for my masters degree in automotive technology or race car vehicle dynamics

vehicles that i have had a pleasure of owning - the very first is a blue
colour petrol ambassador and then a german red omni.
then it is the vehicle that i built ground up with one of my close friends who is also a mechanic. it is a mahindra 540. the story behind this is that i bought a body for about 9k about two years back then took about six months to get each part from the gujari(the local automotive junkyard is called so in mysore) and assemble the vehicle till it was a good 4x4 vehicle.
the next vehicle in the line up is my current vehicle. this is a 1955 willys CJ3B. the build is not completed yet but the latest addition on my vehicle would be power steering and power brakes. i am planning to convert my current international mahindra engine into a DI if everything goes as planned.

vehicles that i would love to own - 1954 fiat millicento, morris minor, volkswagen beetle, landmaster, my old amby,fiat 500,Lancia Appia series 1(dream car), and the list seems endless to me so i shall stop right here

Ninan that's one hell of an intro!! Welcome to the forum buddy!

And please, you're more than worthy, a lot of us would really love to hear your experience of rebuilding the 540 & the Willy's! Seems like a very nice adventure!

The fact that you self analyzed yourself for so long concludes that you are more than worthy to be on an automobile forum..not to mention with your educational skills, you'd have more info on things than alot others around here...so stay on track and thank you for your introduction...
