Hello all, Check out this old Tata Sierra with Elantra headlamps and BMW inspired grill. To further add to the misery is the upkeep of the car.

thanks

Its really sad to see most Sierra owners changing the headlights. Personally, W124 inspired headlights of the Sierra turbo was one of the most beautiful aspects of that car.

Tata Sierra was one wonderful car I always dreamed about. Back seat space is so huge, you can virtually install recliners at back seat in this car. However, engine is quite troublesome and expensive to maintain. Take caution if you are buying it!

In the real world, this is termed as 'Jugaad' and there can't be a better jugaad than this one for our country, where monsoon is a dreaded word !!!
I wouldn't call it as W&W. That is an ingenious no-cost solution to our crazy flooded roads, heck he can even park it and start it up back again in water.

Dear all, Presenting a four wheeled Barbie Doll sorts. Also check the funny looking alloys. Seeing this pic I was reminded of some lines from the new Zanjeer movie's "Pinky song".

thanks

And what on earth is this supposed to be? "1961 model izussu vehicle" from a popular used car site. It's had way too many modifications for one to guess what it might have been originally. The only Isuzu that even comes close from that era is a Unicab, but I always thought that they were made in the late 60s.

Hi all, here is a modified Bolero with a Hummer front. In my view its totally a half hearted attempt which terribly went wrong. I think the best suited modification for a Bolero is the Benz G Class look.

thanks

It looks like a distant and poor cousin of Hummer

Hi guys,

Saw this W&W Sumo Grande in Hotel Sayaji during my official trip to Pune. Hideous looking car. The side profile and rear was also done poorly so did not bother to click.

The car sports a XENON badge.

Have a nice laugh

Wow !! Almost a year back it was reported.

suhaas307's quote was so apt !!

While it's decent, it remains to be seen if the modifications will stand the test of time. Such modifications tend to look cheesy and horrendous a few years down the line, especially if the car isn't cleaned or taken care of.
The car has been thoroughly neglected !! Dent on bumper, untidy. Doesn't look appealing now.

Or may be, may be, it was just the photography skill that impresed our fellow BHPians in the Tastefully Modified thread, a year back !!

Woah, its just a year old and looks undesirable now (never was in the first place). The LED pattern on the taillamp looks good. Since this was parked, I assumed it would be the usual smoked ones.

I feel they could have just pimped up the existing Xenon pickup to a radical looking one and creating a new segment altogether.

TATA will never learn!

P.S: Damn! My 200th post in TBHP was a W&W one.
