Agreed, but doesn't it look dangerous?


And pics of that Scorpio have been posted quite a few times. I wonder if it's gonna be used in some RGV or Ramsay horror movie.

i say "Neccessity is the mother of invention" here! its not dangerous to be honest though. i have seen these lot many times. hardly seen anyone riding those beyond even 20kmph. so i don't really think its a dangerous mod at all. anyways how much can the puny motor of the moped push the trolley.

I must say very well executed doors, but the dashboard colour is really bad.
He should left the interiors untouched.

The Sierra's door mod was very common during those days. I remember, Malayalam comedian Innocent having a blue Sierra with similar mods. One my cousins needed the same and the workshop guys quoted 18k.

The door mod, is not only useful for showing off, but also, its pretty useful to get into those two seats at the back.

Wow! a Tata Sera!

The doors when shut spoil the looks. And what's with the interiors?

i just love the back gull wing doors, but hate the dashboard and bucket seats at the back and meaning less roof.

Nice job on the Tata Sierra rear door, except that one is bound to knock his head on those gas tubes on top, while getting in.

I think the vehicle is used for sightseeing for tourists. it has seats similar to those used in Zoo cabs Nice find nevertheless. it is definitely weird, wacky and dangerous for people who have to travel in such a vehicle.

That is too funky!!!
weird,wacky and definitely built for the purpose!!
i know, i know, all structural integrity, dynamics etc, shot to hell,but who cares?
these are so much fun for tottering around in at 10kmph at the resorts.
is this from one of the south plantations?
I remember similar electric buggies at the windflower in coorg..awesome fun to have your lazy self lugged around to and from the pools and the massages!!

Pics of weird and wacky mod jobs!-03112010104643.jpg

Spotted this whacky mod job in Secunderabad today. I figure it's an Maruti 1000/Esteem. Will try and get a few more photos.
