Naveen Nallappan, Hi. I am Naveen, a very simple person with few needs and greats aspirations hoping to make a dent in the world I came to be in. I have always been extremely passionate about anything with wheels and wings and I seem to have a good appreciation of how cars work technically and how the car business works. As far as my love for cars go, more than power, speed and acceleration, I love how perfectly cars have come to fit into our lives and how beautiful moments in life are spent in cars. That's my brief introduction. Stay tuned to IAB! Drive safe, advocate safe driving!
