Dear Shrijit, it is interesting and humbling to know such a young automotive enthusiast is among us. It is good to nurture your passion and hobbies with right resources from beginning itself. I wish you have a good and learning experience in The Automotive India. Do devote equal time in your studies as it is equally important to build a sound and bright future dear. All the very best!

Regards

Akash

Thanks Akash,this is what my parents are telling me-Studies first as I most of the time I am Investing time during afternoon in DIYs on the Omni and Jazz.Father told that he will hide the car keys. [cry]A achievement is that I convinced my parents not to sell the Omni though grandfather-the owner was skeptical about it and got it repainted by MASS.[thumbsup]When the car came back sparkling new in febraury this year,it was the day before my maths exams and I had got a nice beating for not being able to solve a single sum.After saying awake till midnight,I finally scored 70/80!Yes- Time for DIYs is less than Time for studies.Thanks for encouraging me.
A Story before buying the OMNI
My grandfather had ordered aVespa back in the early 70sand paid 500RS booking charge.After a long time,the salesmen told that the scooter was ready.However, he did not collect it as he thouught that ,"no,one day I earn a lot of money and buy a large car".This dream came true on Febraury 94 when he ordered the Omni and did collect it on 29TH December 1994.
