"Bajaj Sunny, quite funny" resembles like T.Rajender (a tamil actor/ director) dialgoues way back in 1997 we used to make fun with one of the Bajaj Sunny our friend had. whenever she is about to leave, we hold the rear grab rail and ask her to give the throttle, the poor moped keeps growling and doesnt move at all

Looks like an NRI's car who returned from the US after several years and still finds it difficult to drive a RHD vehicle because he drove a car for the first time in US?

EDIT: Oh no... it is not India... all other guys actually drive a true LHD. Seems this guy took his car along from India or some RHD countries.

For the cost of changing the RHD to LHD and the amount of labour put in, this guy could have got an LHD easily, but my assumption might be wrong, whatever, this guy succesfully made it to the wacky thread

If i drive that Toyota, i need to invest in a dedicated co-passenger who's job would be to continously look at the instrument cluster and tell me rev information ( it's not there in this car though) to change gear and inform me of what speeds i am doing to keep a check on myself.

No really, just look at the attention to details in this mod, didn't you notice that the instrument cluster is still very much functional!

I see EL ALTO and AVE MANCO KAPAC. Looks like some Spanish speaking speaking african country to me.
This is common in Pakistan, but the other way around. Take LHDs from the Middle East, drive all the way or ship to Pakistan and modify to RHDs...
Great find...

Yup, agree with you. I did notice the instrument cluster and was amazed to see everything functional. Lets give the credit to the mech who kept these things in the working condition rather than scraping it.
