I thought it's the same stuff seen on the LHS front corner of Innova taxis. But that M800 looks neat. Even neater when parked near that hideous M800

Hey, remember the Zen with cloth hanger that you spotted? I saw it's brother near to my lodge. Didn't take snaps as it was dark. Driver was a youngster with spiked hair and a mush that reminded of a goat...

that wasn't a cloth hanger! it was a shopping cart handle! few pages back someone had posted pictures of two modded WagonR's. they too had similar shopping cart spoilers. whenever i picture them in my mind, dragging them around the supermarket by their spoilers, i burst out laughing!!

Notice the truck style rod attached above left side indicator, it had spring in it too.

The air intake is non functional and so is the spade, it was made of so thin sheet of metal that you can bend it with hands.

Nothing to say about pathetic paint job and poor taste.

Have a look at this HM Ambassador with what the owners probably think as 'Wide Body Kit' NFS style. Not to mention the horrible looking rear bumper with those lights big and fit enough for a truck. I saw this car in Hosur a few months back.

That air intake is also from a truck. Why do people do such atrocities!!! The gypsy's front looks good in the stock form. This imbecile has fitted Bolero headlamps.

He was considering the aerodynamics of his car, that's why the wide-body kind of styling. And the rear lamps - for additional safety

"Pre Catastrophic-crash in-posterior warning-systems", they're called...


That gypsy is probably the go-around vehicle for some party minion.

why do i get this feeling that this car was used for VIP protection. see the running board and that extra piece of metal above the door arches; check out the four squarish thingies on the roof - maybe it had roof rails to hold on to. maybe the car even has armor or maybe the owner just trying to imitate the original

Saw this 'Pink' painted ANHC with a rear spoiler that was more 'Pinkish' with Pink LEDs. I really hope the driver was not a guy.

Some people just do their bit so that we get to post their creations here .....

The cloth hanger.

The auto with a spare wheel, may be it is a 3 x 4.

The ingenious facility to reach the roof top and just in case you need an extra light weight tyre (that can hang onto the rear glass)! I just have a feeling it may even have been a UFO..... one of those transformer kinda thing

^^ Why not advice that blue 800 guy to add couple of fake exhaust pipes? I think thats the only wacky stuff left on that poor 800 to do.

hey the "spade" can be of use. just in case the "wild terrain" gets stuck in mud, the owner can use the spade to dig the car out !!

EDIT : Just noticed there's a "real" spade at the back. I thought you were referring to the ORVM!!

the spade was so thin it can't even dig into sand, forget mud. It was just there as show piece.
