Get used to it! Most TBHPians I would think are the "What car?" gurus of their respective workplaces and family/friends circle. Which is as it should be!

THanks for the dedication, esteem_lover. I am going to play that song in my office, right after submitting this post.

Our first ever press article was in Autocarindia, shortly after launch in 2004. Hormazd and Shapur were nice enough to include a small (back then) and relatively unknown forum in their news section.

The movie was just great. Had us all in splits of laughter all the way. Not a typical John Travolta, but good enough in all other ways. Would give it a 7.5/10. And believe me solomon the radio city rj is now a member of team-bhp.

i too remembered that team bhp had beenmentioned by my husband when i had been called by malini of radio one, then it was called go 92.5 fm.

they had called my husband and asked him some details abt me.

when asked what i do at my office, he just replied that i browse tbhp. so malini asked him, what work i do at my office but all he remembered at that time was that i browse tbhp.

even i had got two tickets for some movie then. but i couldnt go as i was tied up with some work.

this thread brought back those memories.

Yeah, benny boy, i just wish you guys were here in chennai to listen to me boasting about Team-bhp.

Happened again tonight. This time my dedication went out to my son caleb & to my good friend nitrous & last but not the least to all the wonderful folks in Team-BHP. Solomon (the RJ) was ecstatic to talk about this forum (which i did quite a lot).
