@Umang - thanks mate! Yes I am still planning for Punto. Just waiting for that hard to come by raise to take the final step
@350Z - Thanks. It has been great reading all those informative articles from you.
WRT cars, my first driving experience was on the strong tank Ambassador, which my father owned. He used to keep it parked and me and my brother used to take it out drive it and come back and park it exactly in the same spot. We always though our dad never got to know, but well Dads are always dads.
Anyway my first car was a M800, white, which I drove for around 2 years during college years.
Moved on Matiz, gifted to me by dad, Red color. It was a solidly build car for those times. The driving pleasure was immense over the other options like M800 or M1000. Santro had not come till then or probably I am not sure. Mileage was great, power was good, steering was nice with okish feedback. Gears were a little short, and had a peculiar problem to slot in to 2nd from 1st. So I had developed this habit of going to 3rd from 1st straight, and my dad always used to scold me. I kept that for a long time. Ran with it on various highways like Delhi-Jaipur, Chandigarh, Bombay-Pune, Delhi-Agra etc., but never got tired of it. Finally gave it my dad for a second use car in the family before I moved to Swift.
Swift was totally different in the league when it came out and I will write about it in a separate section
Now as I said just yearning to get my hands on GP !!
