Looks to me like a 1983-87 fifth generation Toyota Corolla.


Pitiful tastes.

I have already mentioned before, this is the seventh generation Toyota Corolla (1991-1996), check out countless interior spics on US auto portals. Honda's have different steering layout.

Now, here comes some new stuff...I went to maruti workshop in Okhla (Delhi) to get my swift serviced and there wat I see, an alto just having exhaust and the car is running on CNG. I was surprised to see a person running the car just with exhaust and not filter. And that also CNG....Exhaust with CNG!! Does it Makes any sense?? Which modifier can do this thing? Any IDEA? Just one thing I liked in the car was the Custom hood, when i opened the hood to see the filter, it was stock..

Carlover, no idea what you mean. but your right the exhaust in the pic looks weird. almost like an auto's exhaust. lol.


But car's running on CNG/LPG still need exhausts. Only fuel cell, hydrogen, or electric vehicles will not have a exhaust.

Vid, ur absolutely right that a car with CNG/LPG will need an exhaust but I dont understand what powergain will he get if the car is allready running on CNG!!! And secondaly without installing an air filter, will there be any use of exhaust??? I dont know if Iam wrong but as per my knowledge, how will free flow exhaust work better if the engine is running on stock filter....If Iam wrong then correct me plz.....

The car owner has got an exhaust (end can) simply for the sound He does not HAVE TO have a filter swap.

Cheers

There are two kinds of modders who need to disappear - ones who take really cheap cars and try to make them look way to funky, and ones who try to get the biggest spoilers they can. Subtle but well thought out modifications in the car can go a long way to improving a car's looks... it doesn't always have to look like you are going to be cast as an extra in the next 2 fast 2 furious movie.....
