Finally TheDoors opens up to Team-BHP
I belong to one of those breeds who have been lurking around in this forum for a long time, enthusiastically reading most of the posts in detail, but always procrastinated in posting one. Today accidentally as I was going through my membership details and I noticed that I had joined Team-Bhp on 22 Aug 2005 and today being 22 Aug 2009, I decided to post my introduction.
I am currently based in Bangalore working for the IT industry but my family, parents & in-laws are all based in Hyderabad. So I consider my self a Hyderabadi with a Non-Resident-Banglorean status. I try to spend most of my time in Hyderabad, almost all my weekends are in Hyderabad and all my cars are parked there. I work from Hyderabad many a times when possible and I am hoping to permanently move to Hyderabad soon. I rely on my office cab and public transport for getting around while in Bangalore.
I am in my mid 30's, married with a son who is close to 3 years. Wife is least interested in cars. My son seems to have been already influenced by cars. He currently owns over a 100 of those hotwheels and matchbox miniature car models.
Cars have been a passion since the day my dad got his first car, the 1987 Premier Padmini. Currently my stable consists of a 2001 Zen VXi, 2008 Civic 1.8V M/T and 2009 i10 Sportz. Between the Zen and the Civic, I have owned a Toyota Corolla 1.8E (2005-08).
My next purchase in the horizon is to replace the Zen with a big family mover (family+parents+in-laws), the Innova seems to be a perfect fit, but the heart longs a SUV. The Toyota FrontRunner is tempting but I like the Ford Endeavor simply for its size.
Many thanks to the forum members who post here regularly. Their reviews heavily influenced my last 2 buys. I have also been closely following the Hyderabad Team-BHP meets. I wish to catch up with them soon and also look forward to some regular postings now on.
As for the handle "TheDoors"; well, when I was first introduced to this site by my friend and started the registration process, I was listening to The Doors (Jim Morrison, An American Prayer) and just decided to use "TheDoors". I am a rock freak and swear by Pink Floyd and also love long distance drives.
Here is a picture of my stable. My Zen sports the Team-Bhp sticker on the rear glass. The Civic and the i10 will be sporting the stickers soon.

Hey TheDoors, welcome to this forum! Going by your tastes (rock music, long drives, et al) you are a perfect fit!
You just missed a get together we had yesterday at Ella Suites, Gachibowli. We look forward to your active participation in future.
How about a review of your cars, to start with?

Yes, I was following the Hyd meet planned at Gachiblowli, but unfortunately I go into town at 9:00 pm in the night on Friday. Will make all attempts to be there when ever the next one is planned.
Sure, I do intend to post a write up on the babies that I own.
