Looks interesting to say the very least...

but what is it?
I like the concept, but the implementation is not good.

I guess the "swift" owner was fed up with so many swifts on the road, so that he decided to make his the most "unique". And obviously, he is too successful in the attempt.

Where can I post pics of vehicles which come weird fittings straight from the factory?

I have the Tempo travellers in mind. Some come with head lamps from the WagonR. Some use the Tavera lights. Some use the scorpio fittings, and some use what seems like the tata Ace. Do these belong here? :-D

This one is called as the greenish Esteem.

the owner has sticked the Citrozeon Logo on the right side of the boot.

and Benz names at the left hand side.

the sides were full of fire stickers, and unable to capture pictures.

he had a cloth hanger too.

The concept of converting the swift to coupe is great but the execution isn't.

By the way wasn't the organization who commissioned this, worried about its brand image?

Even i've seen this esteem. I saw it on the ridge road and did actually peek in to see if he was drinking but could not see anything.

Looks like this Fiesta was inspired by Sania Mirza's nose ring, it went and got one for itself. I clicked this pic despite the cab driver sitting inside the car. Must have made him feel special.

Is this some kind a religious ritual to hang that "nose ring"?. and how did he manage to pierce through that Ford emblem. Weird!!..

Well, I think that it doesn't pierce the emblem, it is probably fastened to the grill.

I also think that this was meant to be something similar to a horse shoe, they are supposed to bring luck.
