i dont like the looks at all. it looks like any of the new busses available. it looks like it is for a private tour operator.

Guys i dont see anything wrong in the design.And just to let you all know its an old design which is well appreciated by the customer and also by others who have seen it rolling.Its just because the masses hates him doesnt mean every DC thread has to have some negative notes..Sitting at home and commenting is very easy guys but its he who knows what has he achieved over the years.

No offence meant to anyone...

Cheers,
Niki.

quite a neat piece of work,moreover you may say as a play safe kind of design,nothing too overdone,he could have done the front more good specially the front windshield.

i have seen a similar DC bus in greater noida outside moser baer about 6 months back.
BR (babba raju interiors) has a customised modded mahindra voyager (i think for personal use) equipped with unearthly gizmos.
