Yes, I missed it totally! It had a fancy sounding music system and a spoiler which looked out of the place. Sorry for the image quality, the spoiler isn't visible (took this pic on the move from phone camera).
OT: Am no more a newbie. Will be a bhpian now on.

Combine everything. Now, the "Hulkuti Altoyota" is born

Also, there's this "Scorpion" written on it in a weird text and with your (or some other car's) headlight beam blocking out the "S", it looks as if "Corp On" is written on it, indicating he's a Corporate King of sorts. I also noticed the rear bumper where Johnnie Walker is on the right side and is that a Red Colored PAC-MAN on the left chasing Johnnie Walker?

Love your attitude, streetracer!. Bring on more of these DIY mods! Once the gora boys popularize the look, we desis will be drooling all over them!! Think up a good Italian name and sign it - "fatta da corsa su strada Studios". Impressive, no?

Interestingly Ankit, That ride used to be my ride back in 2009 and I quite liked what it used to look like. Its unfortunate though that our planet is over-populated with critics and thats one reason there is so much hate and unpleasantness everywhere. There is no harm in appreciating something, specially an instance like this where our country India have people who drive cars without a clue of why some people modify cars. Statistically 95% of every car owner in India, looks at how much mileage he's getting from his ride & not what his/her car looks like. So why not positively acknowledge the work of the remaining 5%.

As appalling as you might have made it sound 5.5yrs ago and I did notice this post back then, I held myself back, anyway just for the record, it was'nt hanging by the bolt, in 5.5yrs of my having it, I did trips to practically every mountain retreat many times over, and inspite of its low ground clearance, I was able to do Rohtang twice and turn back mid-way the third time due to the Yoko ES100-treads not making it through the iced incline. Yes, i know, no-body uses v-treads on ice-covered tarmac. But there's no harm giving it a shot !! exactly the same way there's no harm appreciating someone's efforts in getting a car to look like they want it to look. To add to your inaccurate assumptions, the machine plugged through effortless straight runs to Agra, Lucknow, Jaipur and a final 1500km stretch back to CCU sometime in 2012. Anyway, a few final words, criticism is toxic, but if that makes you happy, so be it. Hardly matters to me !!

BTW : Not sure you have that 1.5exi Honda City, coz I too have quite the same piece a 2000yr version - Rolling the streets of Gurgaon in a Blue Angels color theme !!

While you took the pains to write so much about the hill station and straight line trips that the car has done, let me remind you, all that this thread talks about is the physical aspect of a car which one may find 'weird' or 'wacky'. It may just be a super car that sells for crores but some cosmetic changes make things look plain simple weird, that's all.
Also, it may never have been hanging by a bolt but it clearly "LOOKED" that way, construction wise, huge gaps et all, there is a difference - who said anything about hate or unpleasantness? Perhaps you came across too many critics and you've taken it too much to heart!?

Not wanting to make anything sound appalling even now but pushing back on a 5.5 year old post won't make a difference, but if that makes you happy, so be it. Hardly matters to me too!!

Yes, I still have the 1.5Exi. Do share a picture of your OHC in Blue Angels colour scheme - promise I will like it

Doff of the hat to you sir!
Or maybe modifying a rick is too mainstream?

Also weird is that someone thought it fit to park it on what looks like a garbage heap :-(

Looks like one of those vehicles that used to be churned out of DC's mod shop back in the day. I remember that they'd used stacked rectangle headlights as a variation to the same type of monstrosity.

Back then, it was either that or strange car-like custom body (with mixed and matched parts) plonked on a Gypsy chassis. Remember the car that SRK drove in Dil to Pagal Hai?

Whoever did it couldn't even spare the wheel hub caps. Had to have the yellow dot on those otherwise good looking black wheels! Work seems neat but choice of mods and colour is as if it was done for some movie. Totally over done.
