Thanks 350Z. I like using this nickname every where , I first used this on yahoo messenger way back in 1999 the year when I saw my first ever web page on internet (telephone line dial-up days!).
Will definitely seek help from you guys whenever required [:)]

I forgot to introduce to my previous rides. Most of them my family cars which I used to drive.

I will go in line from the year I was born

1978(i was born) HM Ambassador (Mark 3, Owned by my dad) have never driven this car was too young to drive. I only remember the accident which we met in this car. The RH side tyre lost the iron clip and the wheel was loose a large thud and car roated 360 degrees at 50 kmph (thank god nothing happened to any of us)

1988 - Premier Padmini Deluxe BE, Company car given to my dad. Started learning to drive on this vehicle in 1991 in our colony roads(never on the streets was not allowed, ofcourse!)

1994 - Premier Padmini Deluxe BU (Floor gear, Company car given to my dad)

(All were premier padmini's because all these were company cars and they used to replace it every 7 years in we were expecting a car in 1995 but the 1988 padmini had already done 1lac kms and the company was finding it difficult to maintain. Rather they sold it and gave us another padmini for the remaining 1 year, by that time is use to hate this car because M800 was already on roads and I use to question my dad why don't they replace it with this car?)

1995 - Premier Padmini S1 (Bucket seats, A/C , Floor gear, Company car given to my dad)

1997- Hero Puch Shakti 3G (Given by my dad to me for use in Nagpur, I did my engineering from there, I was not allowed for a bike , they said either this or a bicycle [frustration]). By this time I had a permanent license for 4 and 2 wheeler.

2006(got into job) - Maruti Esteem LX(Preowned ,bought it myself, converted it to LPG used until 2009)

2009 Brand New Maruti Ritz VDi

Between 1997 and 2006, I had already left my home for studies this time around my dad's company guy's had a new direction to look on besides the padminis (they were already out of production!). So in the year 2000 they gave esteem vx to my dad and i was very impressed with the ride and drive quality (who will not be after premier padminis [:)]) and in 2008 NHC was replaced by esteem as esteem was going out of production ver soon, which too is fun to drive but I always tell him even your honda does not have the punch of a DDIS engine which I have in ritz!.

So thats all guys about my rides!!

That was an interesting read. Nice knowing that your family shares a very long-term relationship with cars.
