I kind of like the matte black finish! At least its looking good in the photograph. But I am not too sure if I like the idea of a DC modification to a LandCruiser.

where is this ? doesn't look like India, all the cars in the background are foreign cars, and it says Dubai or Qatar on the front number plate.

Does DC sell the crap in Dubai too??

UM

Default Another ugly

Just Saw this 10 min ago. I was on my way to my get some eggs while on the way i happens to see this baleno. It was hard to click the pics from the front but it looks as ugly from the front the way it looks from the back to be honest. Moreover he was driving like a snaky trail as if its nissan skyline or something.I hope you will all agree to me and will dislike this the way i like.

may be you should have flung the eggs at this guy. Wot color choice, atleast he could have the bumper painted in the same color.

Damn right my friend i had eggs in my car and i really felt like throwing some on him but then i thought it wont make much of a difference since so many people has flung the eggs on this car that it use to be brown all over but now the colour of yolk is all over the car.so no point wasting an egg but the front portion was worth to be seen.Cant believe he paid to make his car look like this.

Post Swift Dzire of the 90's

So now you know where does the Swift Dzire Design comes from...

heres a Maruti 800+ Maruti 1000.

and to top it all, check the licence plate.. only UGY... why did they miss 'L' which would make it UGLY.

This is an old weird and wacky job done on the 1972 Amby. The rear door glass, the glass between the C and D pillars, the rear tailgate and even the tail lights are all Maruti Omni compliant.This car should be a 1972 model going by its registration number. The dash has been messed up too!

@Sid, what's wrong with purple ? Maruti even has a production color close to that - if not worse.

@Anjan, this car & anything like this is NOT a wierd or whacky mod job. These are mod's that the owners have done possibly for their business etc. Poorly done ? Yes. But not Weird / Whacky. W&W are ones that one can have a laugh at or a .. or .

Bro, Let these go by.

I certainly agree with you Condor.
The Amby is neatly done considered the time, facilities and resources it had in those years. It does not deserve to be called Weird and Wacky. May be I'm just beacause its an Amby thats the reason we're saying this but, still give a it a thought guys. 15 years back what could one do better than this? and even if this was done 10 years back still its a great job i would say.

Miss The "L" HAHAHA

I think you misread the Sticky there, It looks like the Honda CBR 'Fireblade' logo rather than a 'Fireplate'.

Sorry to disagree with you both. In fact much better body options were available for doing up the Amby even in the 1970's and 1980's (this is a 1980's work).The rear glasses between the B and C and C and D pillars were available for Amby specifications- the owner has tried to get it done like an Omni ( it was a Maruti Van then and not Omni).And that is what makes me laugh at it!
For instance have a look at this one which has a simple body line of the times!
