What about exhaust restriction?? Will that not effect the engine. Or is it that at the end this small piece really dosen't have any effect on the engine.

more like a case of survival before performance or looks...
with the rains the way they are here right now, there's hundreds of pockets(especially alongside the GGN metro) where you may suddenly run into potholes filled with water/lakes deep enough to get into the exhaust.

i think its really innovative on the owners part. better than getting stuck in the flooded streets with water in your exhaust. IMHO, this doesn't belong here.

Actually, this is not something weird/wacky because these fans used to around on the Ambys and Fiats earlier.

Lots of people used to fit them for ventilation within the car as ACs were quite expensive, fuel consumption with AC was a bit on the higher side, maintenance, etc., not to forget our old rules of using hand signals on cars, which meant that the windows had to be down.

This Santro had green alloys too(same shade, as in hood), and a cloth hanger. Wonder what he would do after blackening the blinkers to that extent.

One of the biggest cloth hangers I have seen till date.
Somehow, these spoilers seems to be favorite amongst Lancer owners.

it looks more like a table than a cloth hanger. if it were wide enough, at least three people could have food on that!

Spotted this blazing accent:

The present owner (a young blood) bought this car second hand, with these graphics. Must have got it real cheap
