doing that to an SS80 is a horrible idea.

Guys, a request : Sticker jobs aren't really weird modifications, are they? Please maintain the focus of this thread on modifications only!

Have a look at this Matiz.
There are two silencers (only 1 working though).
4 Fog Lamps on the top and two on the Bumper (could not take front picture of the car)
On the bonet there is a exhaust (like you find on the Scorpio)
Look at the Spare tyre on the Boot.
On the roof, above the boot, if you watch closely, he's fitted a BMW type unit which comes with 5 & 7 series (not sure what it is called).
Ofcouse, you cant miss the color conbinations.

I liked the Alloys, the only thing looking good in the entire Modification.

Seems that either the person thinks the car is an SUV or he is too short a person to make the Matiz an SUV for him.

The bigest point you missed is that "Is this a Chevrolet?"

The alloys look good though and regarding the spare tyre @ the rear a few threads before benny (benbsb29) posted a similar looking zen having a suv type replica of the spare wheel @ the rear. A matiz SUV is here in the offering

Note how he has the 'LT 2.5' badging from the Tavera on his left front fender. So its a 2.5 litre Chevrolet Matiz?

Default Indian Hummer / Indian Punk

See these pictures. The Safari was loaded with grisly accessories. It had the maximum number of brake lights for any car in India. I got a headache as I was stuck behind it in a traffic jam near Mumbai airport. The projections on it's top reminded me of the hairstyle of Punks. The "hummer" had zero pickup. It just would not move. So sad to see such treatment meted out to cars.

Best regards,

Behram Dhabhar

Best part being that the guy has actually spent quite some money to make it look like hummer. Check out the broad tyres and the alloys.

Those stretch Traxs were made in Pune at Autobody or Natasha, I forget which. I think they made 3 or 4 as prototypes, and were also (ambitiously) badged Town and Country. Till about a couple of years back I would regularly see one plying Pune's roads. Since they cram about 20 people into a regular long wheelbase trax anyways, I shudder to think how many people would be squeezed into this one!

Edit - Correction, I thought that Trax was a 6 door but isnt. I am reffering to the 6 door Traxs made in Pune.
