About me

Amratya is sometimes just machines with lungs. He breathes cars and talks about them to a bizarre extent. His heart still rumbles at the sound of Optimus Prime saying ‘Autobots assemble!’. His dreams have more cars than girls. An introvert by nature, his secret lies in cars. Talk about them and you’ll promptly get to know who he is. He is dedicated to anything that runs on wheels. Infact, he even celebrates birthdays for his rides, with a cake! Hailing from LA, he has spent his entire childhood around classic muscles. So much so, that he wishes to create one for himself someday. One of his goals is to own a garage dedicatedly for the American muscle cars.
