I don't agree with Jayabusa

Zen is ok,
Lancer a bit over the top.
I like the Gypsy.

Anyway its not "wacky" by any means IMO.

Hopefully he will not charge customers more for the "lexus" ride.

I remember one funny incident happened to me some time in 2003-2004.
I went to charter a bus for my sisterís marriage in Kerala; the round trip would be around 400 Kms. There is a place near Thalassery stadium, where the tourist buses park. Walked over to a guy and asked about the rates. He told normal bus 20 rs per km, Volvo 25 rs per km.(Approx fare, donít remember exact figures but the difference was rs 5) Since the difference is just 5 rs, I opted for Volvo bus and went home happily, dreaming about the long journey in Volvo.

On the marriage day morning , I was shocked to see a Leyland bus, which is taller than normal buses with Volvo stickers all around (Notably big one on the wind shield) parked near my house. I argued with the driver why not a Volvo is sent. he said that that this is the Volvo bus they have. I didnít want to create much scene on that day , we all left.That poor chap doesnít know what Volvo is and how it is different from the normal bus. he thinks tall body and stickers makes a Leyland a Volvo.

During settlement, I brought up the same issue with the owner. That guy also told the same thing, this is what they call as Volvo. He was not sure whether Volvo is another type of bus.

This whle incident happened when Vovlo was just introduced, people in small cities haven't seen a Volvl.

This bus was comfortable than the normal bus, so I paid him 3 rs per km more than the normal bus !!!

@jayabusa - the Zen, lancer n Gypsy you posted are actually modified cars, both outside and inside (dunno about the 2 door 800 though ) and i know that they'll live up to their looks. I don't think there is anything wrong except that they may be a bit over done. still that jus my opion.
I was specificly talking about the Horror movie Mr Indigo-
Mr Indigo- is not wacky or weird- its Murder, Scary and Expensive Insanity
and the airplay it received what was blew me away, it got posted repeatedly - amost like the return from the dead.

IF the owner of the car were to see this thread... he will be able to bear all the taunts and comments.. but Brabus, you have put the final nail... I dont think he will recover from the comparison you made!!!

Thanks for the comments guys.. I wish the owner has a look at this thread!

I wouldn't want a Hedgehog to look at this though..as I am sure he would have a heart attack knowing there are giant hedgehogs from the Pre-Historic Dinosaur age still alive!!

Yesterday while i was returning from office , close to barista jayanagar 3rd block, i saw this real whacky convertible version of M800. I suppose orange and black combo, couldnt be sure since it was dark. It looked even more whackier since it was drizzling slightly and this car had the canvas top on. Has anyone else seen this car?.
