hey GTO,

i've experienced a fraction of ur feeling...my dad has a 750 mahindra...one with a longer wheelbase.

the way i look in the open jeep with my physique(6'3", 100 kg weight,...) i get glimpses at the traffic signal that is very much envied upon!!!!

i've got an aim to buy two automobile in life

1. Classic, OF COURSE
2. Yamaha VMAX 1200

(the latter i've ridden it....and one of the very few to be able to engage the main stand)!!!

Hey Rudra, when was this pic taken, seems pretty recently when the work for the IFFI was underway.

BTW, Not too many Classics in Goa. I've not seen too many in my entire life that I've spent there.

You're right. This was taken ten days before IFFI. I was there for six days and saw atleast a dozen of Classics. Some in good condition and some not. Reason enough to say 'Goa is full of Classic'. Especially when you don't get to see them nowadays.

one thing is agreed nothing can match the mahindra classic off the road,the peugeot engine may be noisy and unrefined but climbs up the steep gradient without a murmur,i once had the oppurtunity to drive thru sand i cunt beleive the classic kept on going had it been a scorpio or safari they wud have sank in the sand,.......neway great review gto.........classic is a real classic,gto why dont u try putting a rope and pulley (chromeplated)on the front bumper they look cool and are sometime useful too(originals,not the fake ones available at street corner acc shops)

Dude, I strongly suggest you take a walk down the Sinqerim - Calangute Road. I lost count of the Classics that I saw there. Here's one that I photographed in Candolim last week.







Apart from that, I knew a British diving instructor, based in Bogmalo had a black Classic. That was 3 years ago.

Hey GTO.. awesome car and splendid review.. have you ever tried the Rajmachi fort offroad.. if not then I feel you have missed out a lot... the route is good only pre-monsoon... I have done this route a couple of times on bikes but never in a car as I dont have an off-roader at all...
