The finish looks great on the Cielo convertible, along with the matte black & the T-top. The canvas roof could do with some work though. All in all, quite a decent job.

That Cielo was done up by Kurian of Kottayam. He is a very good quality modifier. His jobs are of excellent finish.

But this mod was quiet wacky due to the fact that the concept was not very good for this car.

This Ambassador is one of the famous wacky cars in our city. Finish is good though.


Please count all the different car manufacturers involved. I like the front. It is far far better than what DC did to it. That Yellow mirrors??? Sorry!!



It was co-developed by TATA too. The rear is very ugly and doesn't suit the car's overall character.

hahahahaha...look at that...its awesome. The mod job is very neat in the front and the only reason it is in this thread is because of the yellow side mirors..Its got a OHC type II spoiler too..

Yep. I keep seeing this car (Amby) too. I think the front is actually pretty good. But the rest is definitely BAD! Maybe dripping the roof a-la hot-rod ishtyle and modding the back along the lines of the front may have looked much better.

Checklist of the whacky modifier:
1) Side-window tack-on shades
2) Roof rails
3) As many fake vents as possible
4) As many stickers of paint splotches, plunging daggers and glass-breaking ***** as possible.
5) Out-of-place exhortations on huge stickers (in the biggest possible font) such as "Demon", "Negotiator" (yes, I've seen quite a few) and the one that takes the cake -- "Defendant" (yep. seen this on a Scorpio. Maybe he was thinking of fooling people into thinking his ride was a Land Rover Defender [ha!]).
6) In Kerala, some people also tack-on their family names or the rhyming names of kids like "Rony-Sony", "Sinu-Binu" etc as stickers on the windshield or rear window.
7) As many parts from as many different cars as possible.
8) As many antennae as possible.
9) A spoiler is a must, and the bigger the better. And as above, if more spoilers can be introduced in multiple positions, great!

Anything else, folks?

The humvee scorpio looks like the face would fall off any minute...
The Innova BOSS... less said the better.. totally ruined the vehicle...

The Cielo mod by Kurien was fine save for the faulty nose job it recieved.

As for the amby posted by speedzak... it looked fine from the front, but a total disaster from the rear.
