Why couldn't he have used a Tata 407's instead - lol , was that a serious question?

Yeah! (even If that was a sierra) The 407/207's headlights would surely have suited it better.

You sure? Because it has the rear door of a sierra.
If yes, good news, because it pains me to think of/see a sierra wasted!

Its definitely once messed up Sierra. I am not really sure of its state of mind though!

Many are left in their original and OE condition. First to change on these is non standard headlights.

But not all may intend to do so. In the case of accident/vandalism, they have no choice.

I am not too sure if this has been posted earlier or not so please excuse me if it's a dual posting,

Spotted this Accent on Food Court on Mumbai-Pune Express Highway

Since I own Accent watching this car made my heart cry... why in the world you would like to paint your car in this way and this color ...

Few mins later the owner came and after looking at him (Yes a GUY) I was more disappointed - He was wearing a Red T-shirt with denims and yellow sport shoes along with white frame sunglasses

I was going to say - Paris Hilton's car. But it seems that Paris Hilton has a brother with similar tastes.

So we can expect the same car in different wacky coloured body wraps once he gets bored of the pink colour.

presenting the baap of all mod jobs.

source carscoop and ebay.

This hodgepodge of automotive parts of all sorts and sizes fused onto the welded bodies of two Mercedes-Benz 300TD estates of the early 1980s, is up for auction at eBay. The asking price is probably even more ridiculous than the 'Thing's' looks: just under a million US dollars - $950,000 or about €770,000 at today's exchange rates, to be exact.
The extra-terrestrial Mercedes diesel model is the work of one Antti Rahko. The 10-seater model measures a whopping 29 feet in length (or close to 8.9 meters) and tips the scales at a scary 7,500 lbs or about 3,402 kilograms, featuring parts from more than 40 cars including 86 lights and 36 mirrors.
The eBay seller notes that the car has won 1st place two times in the Houston Texas Art Car fest while it's also a two-time winner of the "People's Choice Award" Art Car in Florida. More photos and videos after the jump.
eBay Seller's Description:
Houston Texas Art Car winner 1st place 2 times 2007 and 2009. The worlds largest and oldest Art Car Event.
Also 2 time winner "
Up for sale is this Mercedes 300 Turbodiesel Limousine. It is custom welded together with another Limousine Mercedes and has 3 axel's and 8 wheels. It has 4-wheelsteering which the rear is linked with the front wheels. The driveshaft is connected with the centeraxel with dual wheels at both sides.
The car is 29 feet long, weighs 7500 lb. There is seats for 10 persons in this car.
It has parts from over 40 cars, 86 lights, 36 mirrors and 3 batteries. Included is 4 spare wheels and a navigator. Build time was approximately 10 years.
I have been driving this car to Canada every summer from Florida. It is a very reliable car. It consumes 25 mpg Diesel.
Last year i changed the engine and transmission which had under 100.000 in mileage.
The car has been on several TV-shows, magazines, newspapers, internet articles.
You are bidding on:
Art Car 1st price winner Mercedes 300 Turbo Diesel.
The car is located in Lake Worth Florida, 33461 (10 minutes from Palm Beach airport).
Those, who want to inspect the Mercedes, i can pick you up from Palm Beach International Airport, Amtrack or Greyhound. Also i can help you with worldwide shipping at your expense.
