Plate masked or not, that car will be instantly recognisable. People...please destroy it.

The (fake?) rear tail light is not all. Check out stickers on the bumper and the entire rear windscreen. It's hideous. Pitiful way to spoil the glorious 3.0 V6.

Trying to emulate the new accord may be acceptable. But what are those orange reflector kinda stickers on the bumper, side and roof of the car?!

But this way, to emulate the new accord, one would start at the panels then the declid the bumper and the lights it will require investment. Besides, why at all take the pain?

Salunke Vihar Residents of Pune should know this car and its owner too. What a waste. Do not miss the roof with a tail lamp in the front half of the roof

I thought I would post this in modded padmini thread but as soon as I went there I saw the last few posts talking of exactly this hence decided this would be a better place.

I dunno if i need to blank out the dudes face as I gave him a thumbs up while taking the pic and he drove next to me to let me take a few more.

It is a little weird since it's just chopped off. Also I thought of posting in the other thread on modded padminis but if you see the last few posts there it's about chopped padminis being posted on this thread. Also I think he just chopped it cause it was short on headroom for the tall chap.

I guess if many others like it, this can be moved into modded padminis thread.

Don't know whether they qualify as wierd, but wacky they definitely are:

1. Ford with a inferiority complex? (Bangalore)


2. Double-cab half-bed Scorpio pick-up? (Bangalore)


3. Rolls in desperate times? (Erode, TN) It was too large to be a modified Tata Estate, and had all the internal trimmings of a Rolls - so it must be someone's wacky idea to use a Rolls as an advertising vehicle


It even has genuine Rolls 20" rims!
