What a waste of such a nice car. Too much of Need for Speed.

Well in case of the trucks I think they don't deserve to be here. It's a trend in Pakistan to have such artwork done. For them it's like getting flame painting done.The work done inside the cabin is really good.
But then again looks are subjective

@Rotorhead: They are Bedford trucks. And yes, it's a WoW!! These trucks are long gone from India, the last one I remember was one lying like a fossil somewhere near NH47 roadside at Kayamkulam, Kerala. Wanted to take an HDR shot of that one.

spot on clevermax, indeed the bedfords. There were quite a few of these as well as dodges and fargo at my hometown ooty probably 15 years back and now there are none of these left. Its such a shame to have lost out on these vintages.

Yes, we have lost all of them. I still remember the Dodge Dakota which was owned the Canadian engineers who lived next door, when we were living in KSEB quarters at Moolamattom, Idukki - the Indo-Canadian Hydro Electric project. This was way back in 1980-81.

I used to go climb and sit inside that vehicle and sometimes underneath(!) for hours together, when I was a small kid.

I personally think these are work of art and not deserved to be in weird and wacky thread. I would love to drive these.

These trucks are really a work of art.

There is a beautiful long article about these trucks.

A day of cross-pollinations:
  • first 2 pics show an auto as a result of bajaj-maruti-Toyota alliance (the front pic has a maruti logo on the yellow panel under the wiper.
  • of course, lots of Ferrari stickers on tavera and indica
  • look closely to the qualis on the next pic, it has a Mercedes logo and "mercedez bens" written under it.
  • a badly modded santro inside a dealership.
