Late arrival into Team BHP, Well, Better Late!
I am Samarth, a retired Merchant marine Captain, a long time engine head, and a brand new arrival into the Team BHP family.
The first car I ever bought/ owned was an army disposal Willys that I picked up by my own money on my 20th B'day. Kept it for a year, broke the chassis and sold it little realizing what it could have meant later.
Next cars were an M800 also sold now, A 1996 Sumo DX, a 2004 Honda City V-tech now turbocharged, a 2006 Optra 1.8 LT, a 2009 Tata Safari 2.2 VTT, and now a 2003 Gypsy.
Always interested in engines, I've worked on my own cars making friends and enemies alike in several workshops.
Hope to post pics of the garage soon
with warm regards to all.

Welcome to an obvious gearhead! I presume you've already parked yourself somewhere in our Technical section? Do visit the Commercial Vehicles forum too; there's some great discussions on ships (including a test drive report ).
Great to have you with us, Captain!

Welcome aboard Captain. If my knowledge holds true then you're Captain Samarth from Autopoint (ProAutoMods), correct? If yes, then it's great to have such a erudite person on TBHP.
