When the lites turned green, i stomped on the acce and just pulled off. Grinning from ear to ear thinking i have smoked a bmw. forget abt those two chaps on my left. maybe 10 secs and 60 kph later, i heard a whooooooshing sound on my right. quick glance on the right and this bmw is making me look as if i am standing still. Passed me ofcourse. Maybe if there was a chap like one of us behind the wheel of that bmw, i wud never get to write this post. he would have been at the next signal while we were changing into second.
oh yes, those chaps in their accents and esteems passed me too.
no offence meant but i had a nice laugh, the way you presented the whole thing was great. And you actually were thinking for a while that you beat those 3 guys had me in splits for a while. I like the premier padmini, the ones with petrol engines make a great exhaust note. I will own one one day just for the pleasure of hearing it rev.

Me too. Literally. If somebody honks too much I just downshift and floor it. Be it a merc, or a ferrari, they are lost in the actual carbon dust storm created by my trusty indica.
