It's going to be my girl.

With her by my side, I can conquer the whole world.

Love first dream car later. Until then, i'll just enjoy the Vtec, it should entertain me for another zillion years.

If the competition gets faster, i'll make the Vtec faster than that. Don't think thats gonna happen anytime soon, though.

Regards....

well guys
i voted for the girl..... coz in times of trouble a car cant give that much emotinal support that a *life patner can give! heck people r gonna start bad mouthing abt you if in times of trouble you zoom around the town in your dream car

heck , who knows? may be along with the girl even your dream car might arrive (in many ways, she might be a car freak, her parents might gift her one, or may she might just win it in an lottery!)

one things for sure guys (even those who voted for the car!) deep down inside we need a lot of pampering and laad-pyar, which after your mom only ur gf/wife can give (more of it) when compared to a car


and some of you(think it was addy?!) were saying the the girl's parents will ask what do you earn, you have your own house?? and then abt the car
heck even if u have a ferrari and want your future would-be to live in a jhoppad patti, no girl's parent's in their right mind will give *you the girl

and v12 bhaya, life always not what they show in those college flicks
some guys and girls r genrally very serious, i know many girls who when they go out with thier guys they share the bill, in serious relationship there is nothing that only the guy should bear *the brunt, even your going to be life patner helps you out
and honestly tell me didnt you buy the elim coz it was a chik magnet?

and gto , i am sure that u just didnt say that coz your would be too comes to this site!

and mr 316 wait till you fall in love, leave her and go for the car, then in your old life nor will you have the car(coz when u r 80 plus u cannot drive your dream car) nor her, if you had her the days would go by like minutes

and i really thx dippy for this topic coz it made me think deeply the whole day
and come up with this(dont laugh guys, this is one of the most serious moments in my life!!!)

will add more in time to come
now where's mr rudra when u need him

and guys dont get angry on me if this post is too long

Exploration to the max is wot i believe in.

Keep Rockin!

Yep that was me alright. I think you got slightly confused by what I meant. Read my first post properly. If you are rich enough to own a Ferrari, it's obvious that you will have a great house in a good locality. The girl and her parents are gonna see you financial position and car first and then decide whether you are worth their time. If you don't have any of these possessions, will the girl still marry you? Where's her love for you gone? If a girl is gonna look at your property and marry you, why don't you consider your money and cars before your girl?
Money is almost everything in today's world. It's your car that's gonna get you your woman. It's easy for us guys to say love comes before cars. Our parents have ensured that we get good cars to travel in right from the time we were born. Just for a minute, think that you are from a middle class family with a tattered old Ambassador or something like that. Would any girl of a similar financial standing as you want to go out with you? This simple answer is no. She wants to marry some guy with a Lancer or a City. To move up in life, financially and socially, is something every girl, or for that matter every man wants. You buy a car to impress a girl, not the other way round.
Just to prove that I'm not a sexist, I wanna know how many guys here have fallen in love with a woman who's substantially down the financial status ladder? If there are any, and your parents didn't agree to this relationship, would you be able to leave all your cars and money for your lady?
While we are about it, I wonder how many guys here have gone to meet their "loves or prospective loves" by public transport (bus / train). I haven't. Ever!

So guys, follow the golden rule: D the B and B the C!

Hey guys,trust me,girls aint worth it man,well u can compare them to monkeys,jumpin from 1 tree 2 another,never happy with what they have,no matter what.But ur cars never gonna leave u,dun blame it,if she gets towed away,due to ur failure in reading sign boards.
For e.g. my uncle in Kuwait during the late 90's owned a Celica which he love more than his wife,& his wife wld always tell my mom bout his relationship with his car,well at times he even stared at it from his window when nthin to do.
A year or so later he was drivin down a highway at about 110-120km/hr,God only knows how & why,the rear right tyre gave way to disaster & his car went sideways onto the inverted cone shaped dividers & toppled bout 3-4times.This is no fiction guys but later when he was dragged out of the car,he himself was surprised that he managed to survive that accident without a scratch.When he came down to Bombay,he narrated the incident to me n later came to a conclusion-"My car saved me cause i loved it like it was my own son"
