    Default This old lady at the Smithsonian Museum.A tribute.

    The Hindustan Ambassador, India's iconic car turns 50 next year!!.Continously in production since 1957, her 50th year is rumored to be her last!!. She is treated as any family member by millions of Indians who either love her or loathe her as we do our own family , at times!!.She will be missed by all , when she's finally laid to rest next year!.

    The Ambassador at the Smithsonian Museum in Washington D.C. as part of the "Indian Experience" pavilion.She is the first car from Asia to be showcased permanently there!.

    How true Mustang. I've often heard my father and grandfather appreciate them for this.

    Three cheers for the car!

Never argue with an idiot, they will bring you down to their level & beat you with experience, 5. Growing old beats the alternative -- dying young! 6. انّا للہ و انّا الیہ راجعون
