Angry

Absolutely hilarious thread this is! but can't really afford to working at client site

Reminds of my early days of driving when I was checking out the woman driving a Wagon R behind me only to realise that the bonnet of my OHC is half inside the rear of a truck and it left a good dent on the bonnet

Now sure how best to use the RVM!

That would be too much. I'd suggest that person to go to a news channel. Some of them will turn him into Breaking News i am sure.

Amit, what car were you driving when you asked for her number?

Hey, that wasn't me. Well it wasn't JUST me, Jay was watching too.

Don't watch live F1 on your car TV while doing high speeds. Every time they show the cars head-on, you'll think LH or KR is approaching you at 330 kmph in your rear view, and swerve dangerously.

One of my relatives was driving with his hyper-active 8 year old boy in the rear seat of his M800. While cruising in 60s, this boy suddenly turns the knob and loosen the driver seat’s back rest !!!

He nearly hit another vehicle,but some how managed to control the car in his “sleeping” position.This was a scary incident, but I couldn’t control my laugh imagining his driving posture

My passengers were also in various states of undress,but all guys unfortunately.
It helps keep cool, increases mileage and also helps in overtaking in an underpowered car, because people in other cars get freaked out/startled.
I miss being in college!

EDIT-Just remembered- Do not try to catch mosquitoes flying around inside the car while driving. Let your passeneger do that(provided he's not drunk)

So which species of the female gender did you attract with your neons ? And how did they rub the effect of amazement displayed by your bling car on you?

wish it was that. I attracted the forest cops who gave me enough trouble and also said it was harmful for the animals and fined me. I was in a different planet then hence the reason for blasting infected mushroom and neons being on at 7pm in the tranquil of bandipur forest.

No buddy. This was in Rajajinagar.

One more.

Do not comb or fiddle around with your hair while driving fast.

PS: Doesnt apply to people without foliage.
