A "lovely" way to display cars.

Strange bedfellows here:

I found the twosome parked next to each other at the Durga Puja pandal parking lot. The Jaguar 1.5 L is from the 1948 vintage and the Nano a newbie.
Now the Nano's "Maalik" and the Jaguar's "Maalik" are the same. Indeed "Sab Ka Maalik Ek Hai".

A tomato red Santro is perched at the top of a Hyundai showroom.(Sorry for the mobile picture quality)
Now here can be a few meanings:
(1) That the Santro has had the times of its life and is now set for a heavenly abode.
(2) That the Santro has put Hyundai Motors on the top (2nd from top) position.
(3) That the Santro now with a grandmotherly status is watching everything down below!

This one is from 26/04/1999 and displays Merc A Class' bodies one above the other - venue is the then Daimler Chrysler plant near Rio De Janerio, Brazil.

This is what happened on Sunday (27/10/2013) last. The Gypsy was taken as a rescue vehicle for our 50+50 kms Central India Vintage Automotive Association (CIVAA), Run to a farm in Dorli near Nagpur.
The rescue vehicle ends up being towed by an old Ford jeep :

The car faces the highway (NH 6) and the front is OK. Surprisingly, the rear windscreen and the fuel filler cover are missing .

That is one of the worst shops in KB to get your car accessories, rude and impolite people.

I personally would never get anything done on my car from Karol Bagh unless I have a reference there from someone.
I once got cheated, when I got new seat covers done on my Santro. The guy charged me twice the amount saying its a bucket finish, & I stupidly believed him until I got know what exactly a bucket finish is, when i got it done on my Swift from auto-form.
The Karol Bagh guy didn't even remove my seats for putting on the new covers.
These guys can take you for a ride if you don't have the knowledge.

It's been there for ages.
I'll take the second option.

Sipani Motors in India collaborated with Reliant and made the Dolphin and later the Montana.
