We will appreciate if you contribute to the vintage and technical threads. Also, for logistical help on your car (or anything else automotive) dont hesitate to get in touch with me or any of the other Kolkata TBHP members.

Where in Kolkata do you stay?
Thanks predatorwheelz, for the welcome, compliments and the offer to help me out in car owning. I would certainly encash the cheque soon. I would PM you about my whereabouts.
I am mostly reading the posts, the huge goldmine of knowledge. Started contributing in the "Technical" subforum/thread. But I have a long way to go before I can add perceptible value to the body knowledge of TBHP.
I would love to get to watch TBHPians who are enthusiasts about vintage car restoration at work.
Cheers and cya.

I almost had my intro ready on Notepad. But after your intro and selection process write-up, I do not wish to subject fellow BHPians to a bland piece of non-literary work.That I need to go back to the drawing board , or not being an engineer, Notepad, is pretty obvious. Since spreadsheet formulas will tax my grey matter and then suggest that I switch from my NHC to a Nano, I am not even going to try.
Thanx pragmites. I reciprocate your welcome.
I guess the intro is about breaking the ice. Now that you have broken it already, go ahead and spill your bins. Sooner the better.
By the way, hope you know that contributions to this thread does not count for being considered for a full membership.
All the reasons to post more, to show the world that we do not look for "profit" in everything we do.
Please PM me as soon as you post your intro. I do not want to miss it.
Cheers.

eagerly waiting to read the next chapter
Thanks StarVegabond for the encouragements. Without your prompting, the story would have never written and we ourselves would have forgotten it in a few months time.
I have already posted my first 500 km ownership experience in the appropriate thread.
Cheers.

Typos, Typos
I meant "spill your beans" and "would have never been written".
Sorry mates.

Default Welcome Sir

Welcom Sir,

Good to have a Professor in our team.
We will definietly gain a lot from your experiences. As correctly mentioned by you the modern automobiles have evovled a lot since 1970's but the basics always remain the same. The Science facts remains same but how we apply them in practice is matter of continuous improvement.
I have a NEWS for you. Knowing you owned (& liked ) Bettle some time, VW is soon expected to launch New Beetle in INDIA (1.5-2 yrs).

Wish you a great association with us.

Well said about the automotive technology. I am trying to catch up, real hard. Just by the way,can you suggest some concise book on modern ECU's? I have a book from Bosch, borrowed from IIT-Kh.
It gives a rather cursory treatment.

Real great news about Beetle. But from the experience of reincarnated "Zen", who knows whether we would recognize the "Beetle-II".
Cheers.

@Profold
Don't worry about the typos. We are in "horn ok please" country. So I will spill the bins/beans as soon as I can stop procrastinating and will PM you.

Not really worried about the full membership. So intend posting wherever it's interesting

That was a very interesting read - the intro by Profold and the subsequent responses too. I feel a bit like Pragmites, in that having joined Team-BHP later than Profold and not having posted an Introduction, do I have a say in welcoming him? If nothing else, it inspires me to take up the arduous task of composing an introduction as interesting as his! Good to meet you on Team-BHP.
