That car belonged to a Parsee traffic warden in Secunderabad. He sold it last year. He did have a lovely 123 Mercedes at the time.

It is a show car at best, main purpose to drive away with loads of trophy from car meets... there are a few unofficial ones in UAE.

And there are quite a few H2s and H2 SUTs that run on lift kits/hydraulics, custom rims and low profile tyres. Some are very well executed. Another nice looking truck on lifts is the F150 from Ford, have seen a few around... will try to get some pictures.

Dude! Why i have the notion that you have the notion all Indians have tons of money.

For most of us here cars are toys and fiddling them a hobby but its not that way always.
