Glad to see that people do agree. If you feel like puking after looking at this Prado, just like Hydra did a little while ago looking at a Palio, this guy might open the boot for you:





I'll post this Camry XL (Like Indigo XL) before the mods blame me for posting too many pictures, have a look, its worth it.





Do let me know if you want to see more bad installs by DC, I've got quite a few of them. Otherwise, I think I've already posted enough pictures.

The point is, most people are not hardcore car fans like us.

DC is out to make money. afterall, that is the ultimate goal of everyone. If he caters to the enthusiasts, how will he make money? The number of true enthusiasts is not enough.

It is the same logic carand bike companies use. Why doesnt Yamaha release the R1 (well, they are releasing it soon, but, that is not my argument :P) ? simply because they cant justify the numbers with the cost.

Most of your enthusiasts would not choose an MRF tyre. But in the end, if I have to open an exclusive showroom, I would go for MRF because they are still the overall market leaders. (of course, when it comes to radials, Bridgestone are now leading).

Very very true. Bose is not all marketing hype. They did have some amazing products earlier.

On the other hand, I think DC would have HAD to have built a few good cars earlier :P

i think his 'karma' the jeep used in the pepsi advt was really nice.
also this tata used in the SRK film was commendable.

and yes i do think we are purists and are really harsh on him. he has done a fantastic job for Aston.

i agree some of this jbos are . . .really bad, but i second GTO . . his fit and finish are second to none.

cheers.

Personally i like simple designs.
I don't like people who "OVERDO" anything.
Pictures posted by Rocksterraghu should be proof enough why i don't like DC designs.

Design for the sake of it? Not me.

Forgive me for sounding naive, but can you tell me what's wrong with the stretch Prado and stretch camry? They do not have any external modifications other than the stretch body (and that dome thingy on prado).

That dome thingy on the Prado, if my guess is right, is for the DTH..

that was dc trends if it was the swift you were talking about.
the other weird car was a swift which was made into a two seater which someone was going to gift to his daughter.

I liked DC's model based on fiesta.Forgot the name of the model.I also liked the volvo he modified!.Rest everything are just plain ugly.

I do wonder where he sources his alloys from.
