Default Pics of weird and wacky mod jobs!

I went to get my Pioneer DEH-P8450MP today (yeah, I finally got it ) and I saw these hideous things on the road...

1. Tatamobile (or Tata 20x whatever) converted into a saloon car with Lancer tail lights! Silver color. Versova.

2. Mitsubishi FTO .. weird looking in BRIGHT ORANGE color .. right opposite Milan subway.

3. New 04 City with crappy Tiger and other rubbish "vinyl" all over the car that belonged to some motor training school.

Yuck.

I couldn't get any pics as I was driving and jesal was too busy talking on both his phones (don't ask). But even if i could take the pics, would you really want to see them? :--)

About the Tata saloon u talking about....there are many of them with Mercedes 190E series tail lights..they are mostly bulletproof vehicles used by ministers.!!

About the Mitsubishi FTO...many magzines say..its one of the good looking coupes around...and that car isnt bad at all!!!

and i thought i have a bad car day every sunday
like every sunday these people come from suburbs in qualises that have wierd decals all over them and are like fully loaded with some occupants puking out the window
earlier it was the same scenario but with the car being sumo but now seeing base qualises doing that duty scared me ...
im sure some of you guys know what i am talking about if u dont imagin -
a red or white sumo/qualis , with graphics,stickers all round an a carrier .
the vehicle is loaded to the grills with about 12 people some car sick and puking all round and spitting paan
man, cmon the road is no place to puke or spit, give it some respect,

really makes u feel sorry for the people who clean the cars and especially the tyres

Usually it takes only one car to ruin your day. In my case it had to be a Tata Indigo. Picture this, huge rear spoiler, 5 exhausts, decals from every possible tuner firm in the world, vents and scoops where you'd least expect them, at the same time WRC stickers on the front and rear windscreens. The interiors not spared either, the usual chrome and dhinchaak stuff, the eye catcher though was a 1:24 Mclaren SLR model above the dials. There is only as much i can take, before i gasp for breath.

I didnt mean to say that the cars themselves were bad, but only what their stupid owners turned them into. I mean a Tatamobile/20x or even an Estate is OK for what it is, however, when you turn it into a salon and put some other car's tail lights to it, what the hell do you get? A pukey pair of wheels. The Mitsu FTO is a great car, but it SUCKS IN ORANGE GRR.

I don't hate the new City as much as I used to before, but I don't care how many of you TB guys have these vinyls - but im sorry to say that I HATE the stupid tiger or running leopard or stupid football or cricket ball vinyls that you put on your cars! GROW UP!

I need some sleep!

WOAH! where did you see this car? I mostly see it parked close to my area...its really too much, looks like he bought the whole extra-accessories shop and put it in his car! the car is full of stickers, bullet holes, and crappy stuff. I don't even wanna talk about the interiors. Also seen a Esteem or 1000 [didn't notice much coz there was so many other things to notice] with soooooooooooooooo many nonsense stuff in the interiors i doubt if anyone would be comfortable inside, far less survive in a crash!

P.S. I'll try getting photos of the TATA Mobile and the Indigo

The Tatamobile is parked at Versova .. i'm not going there EVER again .. so would someone else help out here? Jesal perhaps?

Btw those Indigo pics I posted were at the Bandra Talkies junction (opposite the main petrol pump where the road splits into Linking and SV and Turner and the other road that leads to the station. I know everyone knows Bandra Talkies Junction, but I just felt like typing a lot).

I guessed as much it was Bandra Talkies, but wanted to be sure. Anyways, the pics are here!

The Modded Tata Mobile!

As this topic has led members to post pictures of modified cars, this topic is shifted to Modifications & Accessories

This is spoiler? Or a clothes hanging rack for lack of place at home?
