Alright. That explains it.

Just Curious , he is a collector right, but does he sell any of these cars ? any info on that? Or he keeps everything that he buys ?

I think he keeps them. Another interesting fact is that he doesn't like travelling by many of them either. He has a soft corner for SUVs.(people who have seen the family would know why). I remember earlier he used to mostly prefer to travel in his Ford Endeavor, even when there were mercs and beamers lying waiting.

You must be talking about someone else. This family never had a Ford-END.

They use each and every car that they own , thats the difference between them and others. From Thar to Innova or Figo to Manza, they have no qualms about being seen in a sub 10 Lakh car.

His very close friend owns an Endeavor, and they often travel together.

Now that is one mean looking car! Makes the A7 notchback so outdated. Any idea who owns this? The red would have been more matching I think.

This car is on display at Calicut BMW showroom. This must be a demo car owned by Platino Classic folks.

I guess Autotranny meant the endeavor of his friends' as revintup said. Thanks guys for the info. Great to hear that they treat every car equally and use all of 'em regularly .

Where is this ? Those first two pictures, with that transformer somehow looks like a familiar place to me. But, I guess its simply the 'Hi Lite' board that is making this place familiar to me.

I think this belongs to a guy from Chengannur, and was the same one which was driven by his little son for some show at the College of Engineering Chengannur. The details of that event is in this same thread some pages back.
