WOW thats a lotta money to do what most 40s and 50s jeeps can do anyway. I know Im gonna get belted for saying this but I fail to see the real reason behind such extravagant mods!!!

P.S: No offense to anyone, its purely my personal opinion/perception which is in no way indicative of demeaning anyone else's way of doing things or likes.

@wolf - there is thread somewhere here on team bhp, which talks about how much people have spent on thier 40s ,50s jeeps ... just to get them to run and look decent. take a look at it.



OT- awesome... giri uncle is here.... nice to see "newbie" under his name ,lol!

Fortunately, he is not on team-BHP, so he won't see your message or take offense. But, it is a personal preference, I don't think we have a right to tell him how much he should spend. It is his money.

Sir, guess you are in the wrong place

As siddhu mentioned, check the other threads. Infact, there are multiple thread that talks the history from the they jeep was bought [including the one from scraps] to the day it came out in glory.

That's why these are done with passions and not just because one has money, and not worth to discuss the worthiness. Because "worth" is different for different people

All,
Thanks for the supportive words by most of you we will surely try to deliver a better event in the coming years both in terms of hospitality and trail...
and ARka calling this the best OTR i India has really given the Organising team the Good feel.

Deepak,
The tyre carrier was the first prototype made by Swastik viji for my vehicle, get in touch with him when you decide to have one made.

Prithvi
