Great looking mod except the poorly executed air scoop(?) thing below the bumper. Noobish Question: Wont the tire catch the wheel arches with such an upsized tire and low stance?

A tastefully done up Ambassador. Guess HM could have continued selling cars had they launched a version like this for tasteful, upmarket buyers.

Looks good. Except those Alto ORVMs and the 'sporty' steering wheel..

That amby looks amazing. Wish someone had bought the rights to produce this car from HM and then launched a new generation version of it. The Mini is a hot favorite the world over and this could have been our Cult vehicle of choice.

The side mirrors are the only sore point on this rather fine "Ambossador".

Compare it to this "Embarrassador" from the weird and wacky thread!

Wow. Now that is one heck of a good looking Ambassador. The head on shot looks class. Guess its the wide tires with just the right amount of protrusion from the body. Another one from Keralafonication I guess.

That Amby is looking good, sans the weird side mirrors.
This is one car which commands a lot of respect on our roads.
All it needed was a modern engine, safety features and better reliability from this beast to make it a cult classic.

The side skirts for the honda city looks overdone. Liked the alloys though.
