I wanted to touch it and feel what it is, but the owner was sitting inside.

Sorry for the bad quality, picture taken from iPhone with sun facing directly.

@ N_C and Cyrus43- Thats a FAKE car Cyrus. Yes a fake. There is nor ever was any such thing as a VW Tempo.
There was a similar car called only Tempo. It featured dual, twin cylinder two stroke engines, one fitted on either end of the car. I know of one surviving example in Goa which I have featured in some post.
Apparently the owner of this car must have got hold of a shell somewhere and ingeniously has put in a Beetle or a Microbus engine, VW rims and drive-train and is laughing all the way.
He even got a few prizes for the most unique car etc etc . My foot unique. Someone should call his bluff. I mean it is appreciated that he has made a car out of mixing and matching parts but taking credit for a car that never was.....thats not right!!

sumit,
this indica is owned by a resort situated near kufri, shimla.
the grass on the car is high quality artificial turf, usually used
for flooring. i must say it has been executed very neatly, though
at a considerable cost
cheers

Cyrus, you sound confident in the above 2 posts and after V16 posts about the fake VW tempo you say this below,

I am confused. If you knew it was a fake - why did you confidently say it was a VW tempo ?
