I don't think so. It doesn't look that old. Plus, no one would do something like this to a 9lakh truck.

you never know. we've seen many examples on this thread where people have totally screwed their vehicles just because they had lots of money to throw around

on second thoughts, it could also be a jacked up Tata Mobile 207 DI

Gr8 post people. Had a good laugh seeing all the photos posted, thanks. People with such bad taste should'n be allowed to modify cars. There should be a rule brought out by every car manufacturing company and make it against law to mod cars. better everyone run a stock car than see such odd jobs.

That to me looks more like a 4runner or something similar.

I also thought it's a Sierra, looking at the front doors.

Sorry for the late reply (my wife got operated at the Fortis this Thursday).

Anyway, that shark fin that we see generally with on most cars these days (even with accessories like led lights, etc.) is the radio antenna these days unlike the pull the stick or antenna popping up when you fire the engine.

I say it first on a BMW (3 series) probably over a year back & was confused until checked the forum & with a car accessory dealer.

Regarding the direction, it should be like a shark-fin is attached to the beast's body, i.e. the lower portion forward & higher portion facing the traffic.

@Driv3r: God save that person who put up that cloth hanger. Wonder what he was thinking. On top of it, looks like it doesnt even work.

May be it was still lying around in his house and he decided to try it out. BIG MISTAKE

none of these clothes hangers actually work unless the car they're fitted on are doing anything above 120-140kmph. also, many of these clothes hangers are just for show and are not actually aerodynamically engineered. hence, even if the driver of the car fitted with these "show pieces" ever did hit the above mentioned speeds, it might do more harm than provide downforce!

That contraption could end up overheating the engine if the bike has run for long.

Yes, that will overheat the engine due to lack of air flow. Guess what, my friend got his pulsar 150's engine fried during a trip of 100kms.

The reason - His choice of a 'stylish' after market engine guard.
