I do not own a car (or a two-wheeler or any other type of four-wheeler) and neither do I see myself owning one. For one, I am a great fan of public transport, and living in a city like Mumbai, I have never had to worry about transport. Second, I do not want to contribute to the existing traffic chaos and pollution by adding my vehicle to it. And third, I can’t drive. Yes, I have been told it is shocking that I can’t drive, but hey, that’s one skill I’m quite comfortable not having. But all this has not stopped me from liking cars. In fact, I consider vintage cars as works of art, and seeing a Volkswagen Beetle on the road gives me a high.
I realised only lately that I didn’t just like cars. I loved them. I discovered 94 photos of cars (I counted, honest!) during yet another attempt to bring some order to my ever-growing, unmanageable, digital photos. Surprisingly, there were no photographs of Volkswagen Beetles—though there were lots of photos of vintage cars as well as photographs of strange-looking and quirky cars.
Presenting some of them the cars from “my car collection” 😀
Now while I
like love cars, I have absolutely no interest in their specifications or make or year or mileage or whatever else it is that true car lovers get themselves all excited about. In fact, I can’t even differentiate between a Mercedes and BMW or any other car for that matter—the exception being a Beetle. All that matters to me is whether it appeals to my senses or not. And thanks to my camera, I can record these works of art for posterity. 🙂
So, tell me, which one of these cars did you like?
