Looks like it's been photoshopped. Can't be real, well, I HOPE it's not real!

That is clearly a PS job. I mean, look at that part above the rear wheel. It's a bit blurry there and the blur takes a weird shape, like that of the original cabin.

Land Cruiser for sale in Mumbai. Not masking plates, pictures are from carwale. Ad claims "Lambo" doors! Not sure where the headlight came from, an old Toyota Supra or a coupe?

One should ask the seller, whether it is a Land Cruiser in the first place ?

doubt if it is even a Landcruiser. Those headlights seem to be from an old Accord

Have seen this contraption in flesh and trust me it really isn't an eye sore as such. Its whacky for sure, but a well executed mod job.

That's a Toyota Hilux 4Runner, circa 1990s, that seems to have lost it's identity. Looks like it has been donated new headlights, unfortunately it's not from another Hilux but a 6th Gen (1st Gen in India) Honda Accord.

Must correct all of you guys.

There were 2 Mercedes Benz 600's built as coupe's- until 1981. The two officially built Coupe's, were made by the Mercedes Benz works, at Sindelfingen (aka Stuttgart!), in circa 1965-66. A third was constructed from a 600 SWB (small wheelbase) by Karl Middlehauve and Associates.

The first one, made for Rudolf Ulhenhaut, the most famous executive Mercedes Benz will ever know. The second one- is this:

Of course, the photoshopped version of the car previously mentioned, came up on the Hemming's Blog, thus:

Or how about a fairly straightforward cab-forward version of the one-off Mercedes-Benz 600 two-door that Ronan Glon recently wrote about? - See more at: http://blog.hemmings.com/index.php/t....YafduueC.dpuf
Originally seen on Flickr: http://www.flickr.com/photos/5466415...ol-429803@N24/

Thus, the image is photoshopped. We have four Mercedes Benz 600's in India, one of them was ordered by the Rashtrapati Bhavan. The other- by the Iranian Embassy, and the remaining two I'm not sure. Another blue one was in Hyderabad.

The ex-Indian Presidential Mercedes Benz 600 Pullman (Length is 28 inches greater than the regular 600. As if the 'regular' wasn't enough),now in Pune, photographed thus. She is seen on the old Bombay-Poona Road, gracefully wafting, seemingly floating in the air, on her way to the 'City of Dreams'- aka Bombay. The Poonawalla family paid a fancy sum for it, back in the 'Nineties, I hear:

The Hyderabadi Merc 600 SWB. Compare the length (wheelbase) with the Pune one:

HOWEVER- as we're on the topic of weird and wacky mod job's on the most majestic Benz ever, very sad to say, but 2 of the 600 Small Wheel Base survivors, have been modded in a very silly, and needless manner. I really cannot express the below mod in words, so, this shall suffice:

Still- they survive! Thanks!

A taxidermist's vehicle no doubt. I wonder how it smells during the rains. Maybe it's just road-kill!
