+1 to that. I love the body kit and the wheels of the RR. I would have preferred it fully brown, instead of that colour combo though.

Here's something I spotted a few weeks back at Oberon Mall, Cochin. Excuse the poor quality - low light + lowly phone cam.

I don't think this is Whacky per se,

But I had read earlier about 'cloth hangers' so that was precisely my thought when I saw this.
And hence here it is.

Also note those blackened out tail lamps with DISTINCT markings for indicators, the 'H'onda etc.

So no offence, not whacky but a tad weird. Just sharing:

This car has been featured here before. It is driven by a young guy from the Parel area who thinks it is cool to roam around playing loud hindi music. He once got royally taken by me from parel to dadar. And I was in a Fiat!! The stickering on the tail lights is recent though!

Oh!

Obviously I have not been through all the 900 odd pages.

But still - I am sure you could instantly re-collect owing to your unforgettable experience.

Wow.

Its a small world after all!

Let funky_car see this.
Kerela seems to have a higher percentage of reportage of these hideous cares compared to the rest.

Too lazy to go through the thread and check whether this has been posted before, but this Scorpio stretch limo on Mahindra Scorpio's Facebook page caught my eye.

Saw this picture in today's paper. The front wheel is from the CJ Series Mahindras/Jeeps while the rear wheel is borrowed from a tractor. It has a stepney too well located on its underside and OVRM too.
The added attraction is the stoic cow atop on its ride of a lifetime !

These are called Juggad in north india. They usually use greaves or kirloskar engines usually used for water pumps.

If I remember it right, there is an LML vespa with its rear wheel as a pulley, serving as a cement lift in a construction site.

Talking Re: Pics of weird and wacky mod jobs!

Saw this modified Maruti 800 on the flyover near Matunga (Western) Railway station yesterday.

The paint scheme seemed good to me (except that the owner should have painted the rear hatch green as well till the rear glass and then the car would have looked better.) But the spoiler fitted on top of the car looked like a skateboard with a dent in the middle and the antenna on top it looked like it had been plucked off some remote controlled toy car and was pointing in the wrong direction!

P.S: Please excuse the picture quality as it was taken from my cell phone and from top of a bridge.

Bell? Suzuki Logo? Maruti Omni hatch door? Sticker of the same auto on the glass?
