How about a HM Trekker grille on a Tatamobile?? Just the grille and bonnet - the sides are original Tatamobile. It is not a trekker converted to look like a tatamobile - I checked. The vehicle seems to be a cash van belonging to some security agency - no hint of the owner though. Have seen it several times on Banerji road in ekm; unfortunately, I do not carry a phone with me.

The Ikon looks odd with one wheel cap and one hub cap but doesn't look as wierd as any of the other car pics posted here.

Guess 1 of the hub caps got lost,and was replaced with something totally different. Looks almost like the Astra's alloys.

Maybe he just wanted to maintain the fiat-pal connection.

I am not calling it wacky, but weird for sure. It causes loss of symmetry, and thats probably the case with many other mod jobs, they cause that.

I would however give it a low rating for weirdness.

I guess symmetry makes all the difference. Some cars look good in terms of mods,but if something somewhere isn't matched, it can sure look rather wierd. Same story with the Ikon.

I happened to see one HYUNDAI GETZ with CITYROVER written all over. It was in Borivali west area and see if someone can capture it. Unfortunately my cell is just 1.3 mpx and it was of no use then...
