    Which vehicles did you like the most?

    I did not have luxury or even get to see any vehicle other than an ambassador on road at times. I’m from a remote place. 

    I remember travelling twice in ambassador at the age of 9 years. Most of the time it is matador for public tranport. 

    So no favouritism, everything is luxury toungueout

    Oh btw we did own a TVS 50 until I’m 12 years, and later TVS XL super until 17 years, and after that Honda activa
