We took the road are are on nh79. Its peaceful, smooth and good. We're 125 clicks from jaipur according to the navi. However this road is unmapped.

I believe this NH79 is the Makhupura rd going from Ajmer to Nasirabad, Bilwara, Chittaurgarh. From Nasirabad to near Kishangarh where it meets up with the NH8 it's called the NH79 A.

From Udaipur to Chittaurgarh it's the NH76 one drives on. I believe these are part of the GQ. Hence it was so good.

Surprising it isn't on the map of the navigator you have. It is present on the mapmyindia mireo black edition

P.S. the video was way too kool.

Saw the car parked at the JBL store(opp. my house) in Kalkaji, New Delhi. Spoke to one of the guys at the store and he confirmed that it'll be transformed into a SOUND MACHINE, to be unveiled at the 2010 Auto Expo.
Looking forward to that!

cheers

Not sure if you guys already know, but one of the videos from this drive made it into an article in nytimes.com - an article on the classic car collection that Sam and NC ran into during the drive.

Classic Car Encounters in India - Wheels Blog - NYTimes.com

I wonder if Sam and NC know this
