Hello Team-BHP!

My names athief, I am 29 years old and based out of Bangalore, I have a good track record and experience in pushing cars, yes pushing cars you find out soon what i mean by pushing cars

I am foodie and car enthusiast (by enthusiast i mean i can talk and admire an automobile for hours together, not necessarily know its history).Thanks to my Dad who was a automobile fanatic himself. Apart from a active social life I work at an IT company with a vision to start my own retro restaurant.

My interests circle around Food, friends family and transportation, I soon plan to make my restaurant dream come true.

Well I've owned just 2 cars till date, the rest were owned by my father

1965 Standard herald - 4 (2 green, 1 back and 1 Orange)
OldMobile Cut Class - 1
Austin 7
Morris Minor
Ford A

Honda Accord - 1993

Bikes

My wheels

Hey athief

Thats a mighty impressive list of cars that your father has owned over the years. The Citroen especially caught my eye. There is something for everybody here on Team BHP. Check out the Eating Out threads to interact with our foodies, yours truly included .

It would be nice if you start a thread on your previously owned cars and put some pictures in there as well. While you are at it, do take detour to the rules section to familiarize yourself with the working of the forum.

Welcome to Team BHP.

Wow - a CX. It was one of my favourite cars. My cousin's husband had one and it was amazing.Had the option of buyiing it for peanuts but maintenance costs and high UK labours charges prevented my. You have any pics of it.

Welcome and look forward to some stories of your cars

Well i do not have pictures of all the cars, when we moved one of my attic boxes with had a lot of memorabilia got misplaced, i was not aware of the fact that you do not put all the eggs in one basket.
Expensive lesson considering that we did not have a camera at that time and had to borrow one from someone all the time to get pic taken.
