Thats actually good work...
At least he knows enough to strengthen the frame when he removed the roof.
But you have GOT to wear your seatbelts even when going for a 2kmph ride.
One slam on the brakes, and bang, rear seat guys loose their teeth....

It's sad that it is lying in that state of neglect. If it is up for sale, I'd be interested in buying it, though I can't afford one.

+1 . Apart from its state, of neglect, the car looks fine.

Handling should have gone for a toss though!.

Is there anyone, who has genuinely driven these 'converted' open-tops?.

Do you really want your dad to call you each time he takes it out on a spin, to straighten it?

Any irregularity on the tarmac, and the body would bend, AFAIK. Lacks structural integrity with an important portion of the monocoque now being non-existent

Isnt this car unsafe and potentially dangerous if it happens to roll over?
There are no rollover bars or even reinforced steel tubes behind the rear seat headrests.

Are you guys kidding me!! That Cielo needs to be SCRAPPED!! it is a certifiable piece of junk and you should be stupid or insane to buy something like it!!

I like the S Class desk though! Looks NEAT!

Now, that's a place where I would love to work (not really, to just keep looking at the S-Class front), it has come out really well.

Saw this Tata Nano yesterday with those big mudflaps which are fit enough for a Tata Safari. Though there is nothing wild or wacky about it, it surely looked weird attracting curious glances from passersby.
