Having driven a few international cars after moving here, it was a huge revealation to me to see how good the 'rudimentary' car I had in India stood upto the best from North American avaliable cars. We always complain about cars avaliable in India being built to a price or being stripped off features (which is true) but no car that I have driven here has made me feel as special as my Palio S10 made me feel everytime I drove it.

A black Jag XJ Souvreign series or an XK....or a maroon Bentley Continental.

No I'm neither a black rapper nor a Brit.

Talking about having secret and super special rendezvous with your babies behind your girl's back reminds me of this really funny ad I saw of the Mercury Mistress. Here's the link:

[COLOR=#0000ff]http://rapidshare.de/files/13101539/LoveYourCar1.wmv.html[/COLOR]

Think of it as a valentines day 'treat' from me!

Coming back to the topic, for me it would be the diablo any day!

Godspeed.

Alok.

A '68/69 Dodge Charger with the Hemi. Or the Chrysler 300C with Hemi. Or the Dodge Magnum with the Hemi. Or the Dodge Ram with the Hemi. Or the Durango with the Hemi.
But seriously, tomorrow I will try to make up to my neglected old girl, the M800. May even take her to college. Just hope my results dont come out tomorrow itself and then spoil everything.

Hey, for today its gotta be the one I've been doing all things with for the past year and half .. still luv to hear her groan and when she does that it makes me want to push even harder and this probably my last valentines with her so all the more reason to push her hard .. CHILL guys .. I'm not talking dirty , I was referring to my Palio !!

But if I was to start dreaming then I'd have to say the Rally spec Evo-IX or the Hummer !! Puurrfect date .. some day, some where and real soon it will happen for sure ..

Cheers

It has to be the Skoda Octavia RS in India.

Those sexy red looks just dont let my eyes move off. Not that my lancer will do bad at this stuff. Its just that Skoda does it in a better style.


Internationally The Skoda is replaced by a bigger and bolder Mazda speed6 in Red for the same reason.
