Default I'm finally here!!

Hello all my fellow Motor heads!

My name is prashanth and I am from good ol' chennai. I have been crazy about cars ever since I got a big plastic yellow car as my first toy. What can I say.. Mattel got me hooked. 21 years later, i'm more crazy about cars than ever and I have come to the land of some good cars (not all unfortunately). I am studying in the US, in Oregon. I still love India and will always prefer driving in India to here.. driving here is not fun!

I drive a Honda City 1.5 when I'm at home ( my favourite car in India by the way ) and don't have a car here as yet but am in the ropes for getting myself a black 300ZX . Pray for me please.

I have been very lucky with cars (my dream cars) since i got here. Everytime I go for a vacation to California I get to drive something better. The american dream is being lived by people i know and I can't wait to live it myself.

I will post pictures.. here is a list of what i've been able to get under my right foot..
SL65 AMG
Murcielago
360
575M
Z8

Please don't hate me..

Take care,

Prashanth

I thought I was the only nut whose passion for cars has grown with time....until Team-BHP happened. Now I know that there are atleast 1500 others!

Welcome, and we look forward to hearing about your experiences in the European supercars.

Default Pictures

Hello,

I promised i'd post some pictures so here they are. I posted pictures of the SL65 in another thread, so look at them.

Here are more.
Z8


Murcielago


Murcielago 2




Those are some of the Pictures. I went with someone to a exotic car dealership because he was going to buy either a 575 or the murcielago. we got to test drive all of them, so it was awesome!

I still love my 1.5 Exi.. don't ask me why.. it's still a lovely car and driving in India is a whole different experience.

OH MY GOD !!!!!!!!!!! That is one hell of a list man!!
I need to find someone who wants to buy a supercar as well!!! lol

I totally know what you mean when you say indian roads are way better than the ones here. I would rather be driving a city 1.5 back home than a 360 here.... (well almost..)

So you got to drive ALL those cars on just one day?? dayam!!

Well what can i say, heres to more trips to california!
Welcome aboard!
