Welcome Dev. Interesting "interests"!

Just wondering what kind of automotive designs would appeal to such a personality? Classic and eternal (W126 etc.) or futuristic (CLS, Bangle etc.)?

Default More info

Hello bhpians,

Thanks for ur responses. Some more updates from my end.

Apart from my interests, am classic myself ( 1988 and not 1998 ).
That was when i left mumbai for engineering. ;-)

My classic vehicles :
LML Vespa NV 1996 ( recently modded engine )

A 1996 Premier 118 NE, my second one that i bought used about 2.5 yrs back.
Earlier one was a 1989 model that i had for about 2.5 yrs prior to this.
Modded the engine (again) recently.

Love overtaking late cars in my NE especially after the mods, i can do it more safely and with confidence. However, miss a 5th gear, especially during my Mumbai - Pune trips. Intend to put in a Toyota T50 Gearbox that i am planning on next, after replacing the timing chain. Quite a bit left to be done still.

Currently happy with my 118NE, but my next car could be any early Merc (well guessed GTO), modded for sure. May be smelling popcorn at the exhaust, yep biodiesel ... .why not. Eager to have a diesel, when i can afford.

Dream Ride - actually a dream assembled vehicle, for offroading.
4WD. Bare bones. May be assembled from aggregates available/useds imports.
Wild dreams. Too many ideas. May be these plans/ideas will evolve
and materialise some day.

More in Next.
- Dev
