I am kinda itching to compare this holy achievement and passion with the stuff americans showed us about the moon landing in the studio..oh wait, sorry, I mean the real first landing and the moon walk by Armstrong . He sent his words from the moon so did Sam and NC , from highways , rooms , hotels , cities etc

Well done Indian Armstrong+1 ( Sam and NC ) .

Sam, N_C,

What was the Sat Nav you were using, and how was it?

(hope I didn't miss a post on that already)

well, here's another one that sort of explains the travelogue. A videologue, if you will.

Default Bombay-Delhi in a Nano - Reboot!

It is truly incredible what the Gujarat Government has done for the roads in this state.
It makes Gautam and I feel a bit ashamed of the state of roads in our state.

Gautam has monopolized the wheel now and simply refuses to let me drive. I don't blame him. With roads like these..

The Nano itself is behaving like a dream. As we drive longer and longer, the engine definitely feels less noisy and more smooth. We're listening to our iPods, pulling out ice cold drinks from the ice box, munching away on fruit and chips and chocolates.

And of course we spot that.

This dude wasn't standing up for a while. This Mukaddar ka Sikandar insisted on riding continuously like this. Hilarious.

That is common scene in rural Maharashtra.

I get what you are saying, but, people normally seat most of their bodies on the tank for that. Sorry for going OT.

Excellent Pics/Videos Sam&NC,
I was completely glued to this thread from the time it started and have been following it up closely. Superb stuff which only Crazy people can do. I guess not many will dare to do such a long journey on a Nano.
I guess this will be an eyeopener for all the critics of TATA/Nano and will be a slap-on-the face of many REPUTED International Auto journalists who had simply written off worlds cheapest car by India ( I had read quite a few jabs/jokes about Nano). Quodos ot the duo.

Seeing the videos, I observe that the front of the Nano bobs up and down more than other cars. This must be due to the engine in the back and a lighter front. My queries are :

a) Won't this be a bit tiring to be rocking like this on a long journey ?

b) Will the front wheels have the grip like a normal car ? In case of emergency braking will a Nano be skid prone ??

Epic adventure! Boy would I kill to do something crazy like this, I must laud the two of you for not just thinking about this insane trip but also executing it and how!
Unfortunatly for me I caught up with this thread late else you could have expected a welcome banner hanging outside delhi and a Linea as your escort vehicle.

Having said that, I am pretty excited about how the nano is going to turn up after Sam is done with the "pimping". A word of caution, as you have already seen for yourself the nano's electricals are not great, my adivse would be to re-wire he whole car unless you want sparks flying all around.
I am tuned in for all future installments!
Cheers!
