10 car things to do before you become a typical Indian ‘uncle’

Fortuner Steps Featured

Every automotive enthusiast has a lot of things up in mind related to cars and bikes which they want to do. However, a lot of such wishes remain undone as the person ages and turns into a typical Indian ‘Uncle’. Since ageing for humans is unavoidable and is accompanied by serious responsibilities in life, here is a list of things that you should do before you turn into an “uncle”.

Cross-country drive

India has one of the biggest road networks in the world. Several roads in our country pass through breathtakingly beautiful and unexplored places. Therefore, a cross-country trip is something that would give you a sense of accomplishment and sate your thirst for exploration. Moreover, long-distance driving throws several challenges at you and successfully completing them will put you on the top of the world. Kashmir to Kanyakumari can be a pretty great first cross-country trip

Adding a spoiler

Adding a spoiler to your car definitely takes up its aesthetic appeal by a few notches. However, doing so will also add a crazy tag to you if that is the perception you’re trying to achieve. While there will be no aero gains, your carl will certainly look cooler. Make sure you don’t go for a very big or flashy one though as that will not be good for your auto enthusiasts image.

Go to a track day!

Trust us when we say this, track days are fun. It is a feeling that you will never get to know on public roads as race tracks allow one to go crazy in a controlled environment. There are many tracks around the country that offer quite affordable track days and it is strongly recommended that you spend some time with your car on it.

To the top of the world

A trip to the Himalayas may be one of the best things that have ever happened to you. The mighty Himalayans attract thousands of tourists from around the world every month. The Himalayan mountain range consists of some of the highest mountain passes in India and climbing them is extremely challenging.

Learn basic maintenance

Now cars need regular maintenance and love from their owners. One should not wait for a mechanic to replace the tyre with a spare wheel and check the wiper fluid. Some of the basic things that every guy should know are maintenance skill, such as replacing fluids, checking the tyres and, heck, even replacing filters.

Get a CV licence

Honestly speaking, getting a license for private cars is quite easy in India. However, the same can not be said for a heavy vehicle’s license as that requires great driving skills. Since a CV license is also not very common, it is the perfect showoff item during a beer party.

Go off-roading, or at least climb down stairs in a 4×4 SUV

Off-roading is something that needs patience and skill. Going off the tarmac needs attention and knowledge of the position of the wheels. If you own a low-slung car that will kiss the first bump off the tarmac, try hiring SUVs. There are a few such academies, such as the Mahindra Adventure Academy, where you can get in and get dirty.

Drive a high-end car

Most car owners in India stick to regular car brands that serve the mass segment. Cars, such as the BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Audi and Jaguar remain a distant dream for such people. However, you can always hire such cars for driving and take it away on your favourite roads.

Arrive in a stretch limousine

Arriving in a stretched limousine is the thing! Partying hard on a big day in a stretched limousine is something that should be on your bucket list and get struck off before you become an “uncle”. Limousines are extremely luxurious and come with various creature comforts like a sofa, TV and even a mini-bar.

Buy a classic

Spending money on a classic is a serious decision. Go back in time with vintage cars, such as the Contessa or even a first-generation Maruti 800. It can be your project car that can be taken out during the weekends to meet your friends for a coffee or even drive around the city.
