    This is just a brief introduction. I got my Punto 1.3 MJD Emo Pk in Dec last year. This is my fourth car. The others were: Premier Padmini (It is essentially a Fiat 1100 after all!), Toyota Corolla (used for three years in Thailand. I have driven all over Thailand - excellent roads), WagonR, and the Punto. I have sold the first two. The WagonR is currently used by my wife.
    I drove my first car (Ambassador) in 1969, and my first two wheeler a year later (Lambretta). This should give you all an idea about my 'vintage'. However, my heart is young, and I still enjoy driving - I collected my Punto from Aspi motors Ahmadabad, and drove it to Delhi where I got it registered.
    I had a great job - flying fighter aircraft - MiG-21s (great aircraft notwithstanding all the bad press), Mirage-2000 (still very hi-tech after all these years. I have picked the cockpit display as my avatar), etc. I am now enjoying my retired life at Greater NOIDA. My other interests include Open source software - I am posting this from my computer which runs Ubuntu Linux in addition to some more Linux OSs. I look forward to interacting with all you "Fiateers".

    PS:- My Punto is Medium Grey. I think that it is a really great colour.

    Welcome Johnny.

    I hope you don't drive your Punto like you fly the Mirage 2000! Enjoy your stay on the forum buddy.

    Thanks Amit. I assure you that I am a very careful driver. Incidentally, fighter flying was all about self discipline. 'Mavericks' are from Hollywood - very far removed from reality.

    Welcome aboard, John

    Curious to know why not to buy the car from Delhi itself instead of buying from Aspi, Ahmedabad & driving down to Delhi

    BTW, what an enviable job of flying Mig's

    Thanks Amit.I bought the car through the CSD. The price in Gujarat was nearly 30,000/- less than Haryana, Punjab. So it was worth flying to Ahmadbad, and driving down. Aspi turned out to be a good dealer and he threw in a lot of freebies including extended warranty, RSA etc. The drive itself was great. Ahmadabad till Jaipur via Chitaurgarh is out of this world; Jaipur Delhi is OK. Yeah, the job was really great - enjoyed every minute of it.
