Team Autocar - An Introduction

Recommended Posts

Hello there everyone,

 

The Autocar Forum is a year old. And, I'd like to thank everyone for their support through the months in helping this forum grow. We have been really happy with the way things have gone till now. Lot of members, lot of posts and a lot of information. We have crossed more than 1,600 members and closing in on 35,000 posts. With this kind of activity, the forum requires active moderation around the clock which is why our support team has grown with the addition of the latest moderator - Cyrus43. The team now comprises of FRG, 325i, Zander and Cyrus43. All the Support team introductions will be made in this thread. Lets start with mine.

 

 

FRG - My real name is Manish Sarser. I currently drive a Tata Safari Dicor 3.0 and Honda City Vtec. Have lived in Bombay most of my life, but originally from Delhi. I joined Autocar in September 2006. Back then, my main job was to handle all the fuel efficiency tests and do research for the articles that were printed. I am also doing the investigative articles for our sister magazine WhatCar? Some of you may have wondered how I came up with my username....well doing fuel efficiency tests was a major part of my job so hence the name. Well thats all for now. Hoping that members go by the rules and regulations so that we don't have to work overtime. Thanks to all members, Its great to be here.

Hello folks. Its been a long association with ACI, thanks to the wonderful atmosphere, thousands of members & top quality content/posts. Interactions with the members on board has been above par & interesting. Not to forget the enormous amount we get to learn.

Have been a fan of Hormazd, admired Shapur & Renuka, it feels great being a part of the same team.

So I've been a die hard Automobile enthusiast, into cars since I was a kid. Presently working in various disciplines with special interest in Medicine. My daily drives include - Corolla, Gypsy & a Swift. My ID is inspired by the "spirit of freedom" & "love for nature".

I hope fellow members stick by the rules & regulations of the forum thus making our job easier. Please feel free to contact us on issues regarding the forum, we are just a PM away or use the contact form.

Thank you all & happy posting,

Bornfree

Hello folks. I am sure most of the old timers are familiar with me. As should be evident from the handle I am with IIT Kanpur. Have been here for almost 33 years. I trained as a Physicist but for the past decade and half my forte is computer interfacing and control.

Obviously I am enthusiastic about cars and motoring - having owned a couple of Ford Escorts in the 70's, and a Peugeot 205GL in the the late 80's when I was in the UK. In India my mounts include, Hindustan 14, Ambys, FIATs incl DX, M800, Zen, NE118, Esteem, Santro, Accent, etc.

During my stay in the UK I have also driven a wide selection of hardware which we rented for our trips to France. My boss is a real car fanatic and his mounts sequentially have been XK120, BMW2800, BMW 3.5L, BMW 735, and now an XKR. I learnt a lot from him in my total of five years in old blighty.

I did most of my own maintenance in the UK and also in India till the late 90's.

You will be seeing far fewer posts by me since I have been muzzled by FRG and party.
