Speedzak - The pictures don't give you much clues due to the new bodywork/no logos etc. Could you tell us what car it is since only the interior can be recognised & I made a guess based on that.

Guys!!! It's not very easy to guess this car from these pics.
Only one person could guess it right by just looking at the pics. And that ever hungry monster is known as V1P3R!!!! GRRRRRRR!!!!!

The car is a Rover Montego. It was a heavily used one. Did more than 1.5Lakhs kms within 3 years. Then it ended up in crash and this is the rebuild you see.

Here's another Sierra fitted with gullwing doors. First Tata launched a Merc copied car and then the Janta copied some more... That's all.

@Speedzak: The GReddy/RReddy was priceless. Truly.

Also, saw the modded Rover Montego & had a feeling it was that way before I saw your reply. Mainly because of the wheelcaps & the taillamp lamp cut-out design on the original boot.

@Speedzak: I quite liked the quality of the work & finish on the gullwing Sierra. What was wrong with that one dude?

Am still laughing on the Hyderabadi Tuner (RReddy) joke!!!

....it sounds ridiculous that you drove this contraption in coorg. can you elaborate on this drive and what roads you took this 'thing' on !?

...btw...Dakshin Kannada aint Coorg...they are completely different districts and geographies with no similarity between them whatsoever.

R Reddy and Greddy might be totally unrelated. For all you know, it could be the poor chap's name... Rajendhar Reddy or something.

He must have got the idea from another Reddy pal of his... "G(ajendar) Reddy"!



Godspeed,


Alok

Ooooops!!!!!! Sorry for the goof up!!!

The road was from Puthur to some were near Coorg! I drove only 50-60 kms. It was a beautiful hilly terrain with some hairpin kinda bends. The 'thingy' was very hard to control and it gave out a rather unusual roar from the side exhausts!!!!

But that open air feeling was worth taking the pain!!!!

Here is the most Busted 800 I have ever seen, the quality of metal paste work is worse than that of an average monkey can perform.
I could not take pics of the interior as the owner was there and wondering why I was staring at his car, but believe me the interior was like the car was used for 2nd world war or something, mangled beyond recognition fitted with scraps of different parts from cars, buses, trucks, cycles, trams, trains, tanks, aircrafts..............lol just kidding
And I found this on JC Road, our Bengaluru boys will know what I mean
