Do the other Ambys in the background also look yellow? I thought this one was just painted a little different.

The Amby in the background is a taxi in Calcutta.

This one is not (a taxi), WMD is a private registration. Just being OT WMD 309 was a relatives car and was a 1976 model mark 3 (My favourite).

This one has the Grande's tail lamps and the wheels from all post-Nova cars.

The Taxis in calcutta are mostly yellow ambys.

I have seen this car around mostly in central calcutta.

Guess the owner was trying to copy the 2 tone design of the Mitsubishi Pajero !

With the colors it is painted with, it definitely is a weapon of mass destruction... brain cells and retina's specifically.

Cool Cool Honda City with Hella Lights

Here's my contribution to all NHC haters:

Notice the Hella lights for added dazzle to the eyes of people who are already amused at the paint job at night.

Notice the dual coloured rims and further details can be noticed if you see the lower part of the bumper to reveal how detailed the paint job is Not the scratches but the ending strip of maroon.

Arrow Killer, dealer offered SX4's.

Also, if you have read my earlier post, i had talked of SX4 given a "different" paintjob by maruti dealers but couldnt get the pictures. Till i do, the paintjob is exactly like this NHC but without the coloured rims though.

Imagine, a SX4 with this paintjob that too offered by the dealers and people have bought it. Have already seen one in my area.

Perhaps they got their inspiration from this NHC only as this NHC has been spotted by me some 2 yrs ago. It dint have the Hellas at that time though.

Except the painted rims and fuel lid, NHC looks good. There is nothing wacky about it.

The fuel lid, door handles and other bits and pieces were painted red on the white as well. Perhaps it looks better in the pictures. You should have seen it in real life. Looks like a clowns car.

Perhaps if it was all white and red without the bits and pieces of red in it (like the door handles, fuel lid, dual coloured alloys, two colours on the back bumper, etc.) it might just have looked good.

Clown's Car. Oh boy!! I really enjoy coming to this thread. Is that a fog light infront of the grill of NHC?
