i favour Edmund's m800.....1000bhp,bigger turbos,ported heads etc etc is no match for even an ounce of passion that Edmund had for his m800.
and i agree with faithless,abix's swift deserves a mention here.not to forget eklavya's barracuda.

I will choose Rudy's Amby, Edmund's M800, Psycho's Esteem, Farhan's Mivec Lancer from the given list.

I would personally choose Quicksilver's OHC 1.5 just because of the love and care he has for that car. Nobody can hardly match him when it comes to this point.
Steeroid's Safari is worth a mention in this department but in a different way.

Rahul, why are you being girlish again? You could've added your Baleno in the list. Or did you want somebody else to speak for you? No wonder you're called as JLo!

For me it would be Jitu's Hybrid Honda City..Too stock from outside, but too wild under the hood..Just love it..

There is one 800 I saw in the Noida meets. Perhaps Noidaboy's?
Though its just the humble 800, the kind of attention and pampering including the ICE that car got is amazing.
I think its probably the only heavily modded 800 on this forum?

Was'nt this Barracuda/Skoda of Eklavya featured in Autopsyche's TBHP Gallery?? Was it the same Skoda and was it first owned by Autopsyche and then sold to Eklavya, because I dont see the car featured in his garage pics anymore when I checked now?!

Thank you Rahul for reminding us about the genius of Mr. A.D. Jayram a Zoology student who also was an accomplished motor racer. He worked at the H.A.L. where he learned how to fly and got to be a Ground Engineer. Originally the Jayaram GT was conceptualised to use a Herald engine which eventually gave way to a 1600 cc triumph engine. The car was completely hand built, having all round discs and independent suspension. The radiator had three water caps and filled up automatically as soon as the water level dropped. In fact it was way advanced in its time. It took five years of painstaking effort to finally arrive at a built product in 1982.
A very large component of the car was completely hand built and fabricated in house including the complete body, the electrical fittings, lamps, and even the windscreen. It has four carburettors and quad exhausts, two on each side through which a deep growl emanates when the car is turned on. This car has won scores of trophys in varios races and track events.
It does 110 miles an hour, easily on seven, all electrically operated gears.
It is truly a unique car and a labour o flove. My greatest respects to MR. A.D. Jayaram. I would love to meet him on my next visit and hear from him first hand his story on how he built the Jayaram GT. Anyone know him??!!

Mr. A.D. Jayaram in his mid seventies today, with The Jayaram GT. His masterpiece.



Front looks inspired by an E Type

*sniff* thanks for remembering the zen guys.

But my vote would of course go to Psycho's TC Esteem. Can never forget the take off feeling with me looking at the sky as he dumped the clutch, first time he took the turbo out to test...

I have a feeling that a particular Lancer will raise from the ashes like a phoenix and join the hall of fame. But we will have to wait and see..
