    Default 1st long drive in my Vectra

    I took my '03 Opel Vectra for ~900km scenic drive through parts of S. India (Coorg and Kerala) over the past weekend. In some sections the road ceased to exist and the Vectra took quite a beating -- it's chin spoiler took many shots to the chin, one rear shock is leaking, had a flat tire, scraped front bumper as a lorry and the car competed for the same space, and any other damage remains to be seen. But, the upside was some great views, stay in a great resort in the middle of thick jungles, and some upclose encounters with wildlife. Some pics below...

    I thought it was the larger the vechile the more right of way you have.
