Default Just parking...

Just thought I'd drop by for a quite introductory note and then zip on out again. I'm Sanjeev, which is a pretty ordinary name, I know. I'm a 32 year old consultant who loves number crunching, cars and horses. I love things that I can take apart and put together again, like a calculus problem or a V8 engine. And I love anything mechanical with a bit of a kick to is, which I guess explains why I worship jets and fast cars. I currently own a Toyota Innova (perfect for the Indian roads and traffic situation) and I have a long list of previously owned automobiles. And I want - no NEED - to take the SLS AMG for a spin as soon as it comes to India in August-September. Don't know whether that's going to happen but I've got my fingers crossed.

Have you checked out one of those tuning boxes for the Innova? (i'm assuming its diesel). They sure can add some kick.
I believe V-16 has one in his Innova. You'll notice the difference immediately.

Hmmm. Thats one car that didn't quite impress me much. That "tunnel" short film impressed me even less.

Funny story - got a chance to see the SLS at the Auto Expo 2010.
Outside the display stall i met a Merc employee whom i knew. Jokingly i asked him, "So, have you driven the SLS yet?" .

He replied "Yes. I drove it here." - and he wasn't kidding!
