The concept is confusing but exectuion is top notch. Design is sharp at some places but gets smoother (and curvier) at some. In the side profile picture, especially due the position and shape of cabin, it looks like some "Bob The Builder" series car. This guy could have got a Gypsy instead, modified it similarly (alloys and wrap) and it would have looked 10 times better. So much for being different!

Rear lights are from the Fortuner.

Came across this chap a couple of weeks back on the NH-8 here while I was returning back from work. It was dusk and the road ahead was lit up like crazy! It looked butch on the road though.

I saw this "modified" vehicle on Kanakapura Road in Bangalore. Please try to guess the original car.

I have a photo of the front also. It is equally weird, but I will post it after people have taken a stab at guessing the car.

Is that a Santro? The head restraints and the rear windshield design suggests so.

It's a Santro for sure. The width, rear wind shield, window shape and headrest says it all. Waiting for more pics!

You guys are correct. That started out as a Santro (not quite sure what is is now). Posting pics of the front.

While the rear lights seemed to be from a i20 Elite, the headlights seem to be from the Tata Indica/go stable.

The rear was still acceptable to me, but the front. This looks like a dual-tone job, front and rear (to-be-repaired areas after a crash) are painted in brown shade whereas the sides (non-damaged area) are black. The owner must have taken the "Why settle for stock, when you can have custom" tagline very seriously.

Talking about the execution, look at the way the bonnet extends forward over the headlights. The IndigoCS headlight is visible in the fender-bonnet gap. Wonder what would happen when one slams shut the bonnet!?

I really don't know where to put this. Mods, I guess you have to move it to an appropriate thread.

This is a wedding car decoration from my hometown.
Shared by my friend on his FB wall.
He quotes, where people don't get one meal a day, some people have the money to decorate a car with fruits !

Emotions apart, this is just

Well, most decorated cars take care of only the "phool" part. He's truer to tradition by having "phalo" too.
Plus, you know how marriages go on till 6 am. Good snacks. Or even car-o-b@@r the healthy way!

Found this in one of the resorts in Bangalore, permanently parked.
It got to be old Zen as a donor.
Check the H/L. I think itís worth more than the car.
