Default Desi "Overhaulin and Pimp My Ride"

Couple of days back on Nat Geo channel,i saw a programme,similar to the "Pimp my ride" and "Overhaulin" but... the DESI version..yess this programme was on designer called Leepu from Bangladesh.

This person converts old cars to Italian imitation cars,i guess how many of you have seen this episode..here are some details from the internet:

The Bangladesh Ferraris - Ferrari Owners' Club

Tha Black coupe looks nice frm far in pics, tho ground clearence is too high for it's looks, efforts none the less are worth some appreciation, did not like the red one though.

Leepu, what an eccentric madman! Good ideas, but designs were not to my full taste...his idea of not drawing on paper/computer beforehand, didn't exactly produce the prettiest of results!
