I remember visiting a mechanic in Hyderabad with my dad.. i was around 8-10 years of age. My dad pointed to a car in garage and said should we buy that... I said let me check. It was 1970's Oldsmobile.
The cars engine had some problems else everything was perfect from body to seats cushion and interior. The interior had reading lights as well which you see in air crafts. It had automatic gear on steering. Seats were like big sofas.. and it had every luxury which I could dream of in those days plus it was LHD.
After checking out the car for few minutes I came out and ask dad how much it is for... he said its for 170,000Rs.
The only thing that kept us not buying was LHD. We already had Fiat 125(3-speed automatic) in those days.
And till date I have yet to see any car meeting the standard offered by Oldsmobile even in 1970's.
Forgot to add power windows and power steering :D.
