But the mag. article had claimed that he owns the safety car version. Was the SLK200 also used as a safety car?
I guess that was a newspaper article. And we very well know the kind of stuff they write. They could even go to the extent of writing he owns a "Formula One" version of the SLK.

I guess he's just got an AMG kit on his car, which co-incidentally the safety car has (cos its an actual AMG). Thats where the comparision ends.

The owner of this car is an industrialist/ex-airline owner and a bawaji. He uses this car Alot. He had also come in the fuel conservation rally with this car last year!! Didnt actually take part though, was just there for the press!!

Ok, has the car been sold to someone in Bangalore. This is the same car that had participated in the Moto-Extreme drive from Mumbai-Pune. Since this has featured in ACI, I guess its ok to divulge that this car belongs (or belonged) to Parvez Damania.

Unless you are 15 or something, you coudnt have. Parvez is a young felow. And i am sure his daughters (if he has any) are young too.

Parvez has two children elder being the daughter she must be 8 or 9 now and younger son aged 4 or 5 now. i know him since his daughter was 4 and son 1 year old. i know he has a brother called Wispi but i dont know if he has a sister. so going to school with his children is out of the question for you,and with his sister if Parvez has any is also out.

Im not talking about Parvez. I went to school in Bangalore with a girl whose last name was Damania, and whose dad was the co-owner in an airline company. And again, im talking about the Bangalore extended Damania family, not the Mumbai one.

As far as i know there are only two brothers and Parvez was the only owner of the airline company no partners till he sold out. i dont think he has any extended family in Bangalore. Maybe the girl you went to school with only had the same surname but no relation and only claiming to have one. i have met and know most of his family and bangalore has never been mentioned. He used to work for me at one time.

Ok, all I know is that this girl is a Damania too, and in school, heard that her dad co-owned an airline company. Dont know how far that goes, considering i dont even know who Parvez is. Will clarify if i do hear the full story.
