Well most certainly someone tried to make a corvette out of this. Look at the distinct rear and front end.

Probably ran out of money or may be RTO guys never gave approval to be road legal. So it got scrapped.

Hmmmm... Maybe that's a 'puncher' (Puncture repair) shop of wheels.

Well don't know of puncture repair shop on wheels but its a good scratch guard for sure.

Traffic conditions are so bad here in Bhopal (more difficult for me since I am still used to chandigarh traffic which is excellent) that every time I take my Baleno out (to make matter worse its black) some rider on a two wheeler makes it a point to scratch my car or test my bumpers.

In exactly one year, I have changed 2 front bumpers and 3 rear ones (have been rear ended 2 times while waiting for traffic lights to go green and once I found a huge dent on my front bumper when I came back to my car in the parking lot after shopping).


Now I have stopped bothering and go for 'plastic welding/repair jobs' although a repaired bumper is useless in collision.

Maybe I should hang some old tires on my bumpers too.

Add to this the recent damage to you M800, this is sheer bad luck.
The Left ORVM of our Indigo were brushed twice by bikers. Luckily nothing serious happened to them. A biker recently hit its front right fender (not when we were using it), requiring it tinkering work. We had to use a replacement car for 2 days.
Tyres all around can help to some extent but destroy the cars aesthetics.

The Innova looks good though.

spotted this skirted "AUDI" 800 at manglore railway station.It's a Kerala registered vehicle though.


Also spotted this MODDED traveller at pathanamthitta.It was written dual Turbo in the marked area in the pic.That's a new invention. huh?

Please excuse the picture clarity as it was taken from my mob cam while driving.

COMING SOON:-- ASTRA- FIRE FIGHTER EDITION


Regards

Ladies (??) and gentlemen, presenting ASTRA FIRE FIGHTER.


'Fire Stone' decals on no. plates and "FIRE FIGHTER GRAPHICS BY DESIGNER M.D." Also, 'UNISTYLE PERFORMANCE" stickers. Dunno what these mean though.


Also, alto with chrome mirrors and silver highlights.



@Arkin evoisrevo

Yeah but there was a bit of my fault in that 800 incident. I should had steered a little towards right the moment the biker skidded towards the left of my car. But as I was at standstill, could not react fast enough to avoid him completely.




P.S- In one of those Astra's pics, there is a stray dog near the car. I bet he was having a 'pee break' on this piece of crap.

Height of all,saw a Civic today morning with a "rear spoiler" . (Or was it a bar for hanging clothes? )

Was feeling quite sad/bad. Why would one want to jack up a car like Civic?

I really wonder where he/she got this idea from? Some "innovation" I must say

The work doesn't look half as bad as most of the crap modifications on cars we see on the road. Some intelligent foresight along with better planning could've turned it into something good IMO.

The chrome border for tail lamps are becoming quite popular nowadays. The more popular it gets the more wacky its becoming. Personally I don't see how its making anything any better.

The "MUSTANGED" Padmini sure is wacky but there is a charm to it. The mods look kind of neat.

I can't believe that someone spent more money on modification on this car than the cost of car itself. And I might be the only one here in this forum, but I won't be seen within 10 min of this Padmini. This is how you make an ugly car uglier.
