No no nothing like that yaar. Arm candy toh nahin mili so eye candy se hee kaam chala raha hoon!! Reached NY and the weather man got crazy. Its been raining everyday and the celcius has dipped drastically. Its touching 8-10 degrees average with a wind chill factor. 8-10 degrees is as cold as delhi but the winds here make the weather unbearable,especially if ure planned for a summer holiday. Regards my posts, have been busy and the hotel has no free internet so have been saving the posts. Will do so as soon as i reach canada. Am planning to drive from NY to Canada(toronto) on monday. then a week in toronto and then finally back...hopefully in time to attend the meet
Have a lot of pics for u guys and will post them from canada where im gonna be chilling for a week and hve ample free time.

Ishan i posted your package today. Will go in tomorrow or monday's mail. as this is a weekend. When recieved in RI pl let me know. Ill speak to him too

Hi Guys, Two days before I arrive back Ive been contemplating when to reveal all this to you guys. Ive attained Nirvana, ive seen many cars (pics of which I will post later) and ridden in what could be the dream of most people who dream eat and drink cars.
Let me tell u what happened. I met these bunch of friends who get kicks out of modifying cars. They are regular guys with regular businesses who after work get into their overalls and follow their passion..cars.
A white Cadillac Escalade with a Header and a freeflow ( Gives a different definition to the otherwise boring SUV) came by to pick me up one day. Two pleasant and friendly young fellows (names withheld on request) took me to their garage. What I saw there had me awestruck.
The Garage contained Amongst other cars, a souped up Hemi 300C and a Super souped up Corvette Z06. A vette on steeroids or for me it was a Vette1. I feel like kicking myself for not having charged my Digicam. A few moments of charging helped me get this video of our friend flooring the corvette which was idling like a racerboy's dream. Check the links below. ou can see the Escalade and if you hear correctly he says in the first link that "It might not seem so but we just did 190 kmph" and that was in 3rd gear. You can see the Escalade in the same link too.

The Vette1 or should I say Vette on steroids The G forces in action



Watch the torque go ballistic



This is the Vette




Yes thats the other car:



More pics later...its late.......
I love the suspense!! Dont you. G'nite for now, more tomorrow!!

Thats the shift light. Straight out of Fast and the Furious and thats how i can describe the Vette.
The vette has a huge turbo, racing heavy duty cam, performance headers, exhaust and some serious tinkering on the block. I believe it now churns out close to 700 BHP. Hes still at it and then it'll make like an astounding 1000 BHP and believe me guys hes not kidding
