Default Neon_Daytona - Who Am I?

Where did my nick come from?
From the first 2 cars (Obviously second hand student cars) which I owned.
95, Plymouth Neon (140bhp, whatever the units I prefer BHP) and 92 Dodge Daytona (3.0V6, the same as in Mitsubishi 3000GT) Not the IROC Daytona.

I am yet to own one in Bangalore. And the 2.5 years stay in US (Kansas Yes, for everything on this world) has made me to decide on an Automatic (most probably will end up with a Santro AT or an used OHC/NHC AT)

What I do for living?
Design Aircarft engines. Thats all I can disclose.

Family?
Have been Married for 15 months now, with the girlfriend whom I have know for 15 years (And I am still in my late 20's).
And the junior is on the way. Probable date May 1st (They have aptly named it Labour Day, just for my wife).

I think this initial dose is enough for now. More to come later.

Best wishes to you and your family for the new kid on the block.

Thanks for the warm welcome Kartik Iyer, Iraghava, Manson.
Being Non-IT Phoren return - well, that was bound to happen when you have someone very special waiting for you.
Profession: Well thats what had always interested me from childhood. Cars (and team-bhp) are recent addiction. Had been browsing team-bhp for long time now, but took a while to register.
The decision to buy a car was postponed until its a necessity. I am still a big fan of Public transport and car pooling. I do bike pooling now.

Will be posting more on the travelogue section, when the Daddyhood calls for Sleepless nights, Best way to tell all the stories to the kid and to team-bhp.
