    Willys Jeep : Romance is so much more romantic.

    Willys Jeep  commonly known as a Jeep or jeep, four-wheel drive utility vehicle that was first manufactured during World War II from 1941 to 1945. It evolved post-war into the civilian Jeep CJ, and inspired both an entire category of recreational 4WDs and several generations of military light utility vehicles like Land Rover defender, .Jeep wrangler.

One of most recognizable car in the whole WORLD, was called many things like Kafer (German, “beetle”), People’s car, the Bug and many more.

  • Back to Future : Evolution of Headlamps

    A vehicle without Headlamps ? A vehicle with oil burning lanterns?   Yes, these were all real times that existed “once upon a time.” . But let me first remove the confusion between  term headlamp and headlight before taking journey to past and back to future. By definition a headlamp is a lamp attached to the front of a vehicle to light the road ahead while headlight properly refers to the beam of light produced and distributed by the device. But in common practice both terms are used interchangeably. Now that we have cleared our doubts about the terms, lets start our journey through time. Our first stop will be 19th century because before that people only used lanterns only. Headlamps of…

    There are and there were great sports cars in the world. But when you ask somebody whether he is a nobody or a superstar about a sports car only Ferrari will be on their lips.
