I find the lack of monogram weird, it makes the Viva's front look kinda empty 'And think if the mesh were chrome plated it would look better. Almost had a fatal accident on the Bowenpally highway in this car a couple days back.

Saw this at Koramangla near Baskin Robbins Parking

This is seriously a shame.
We should have a NGO called "Save Cars from Insanity"

Look at the second pic closely. There is a Maser Insignia on the fuel cap compartment cover also. ROFLMAO

At least it doesn't look sick. Just a sticker naa.
Rip it off next time you see the car again.

Does this qualify here ?
Those rims have spinners on them. Totally spoilt the looks on the Lancer IMHO. It also had a clothes hanger behind.

you might be surprised to know, but i guess such things are still in use.
my dad told me that for the construction of the Dubai metro, once the tracks were laid, trucks were retro-fitted with such tyres to transport the materials to complete the work.

@Srocher, except for the spoiler I dont think anything else there spoilt that car. The antenna included.

I'm sure there are whackier mods around us than stuff like that - fog lamps, single antenna;s etc.

@Driv3r & guys, that's a functional mod on that truck. We even have a Sumo pic here on TBHP - modified to run on tracks. IIRC, Konkan railway again.
