This must be some VIP's car. That parking place is reserved for them to display such thing.

Well, speaking about the quality of work alone, it looks pretty decent in these pics. Especially the paint job which looks good. As far as the actual look goes....erm....

Yes you see that right. Brigade road is an automated parking zone. So any car stays back without parking fee renewal...lands up in local police station.

Yes itís a tow truck.
Normally their modus operandi is like this. The traffic cop sits on the front cabin, and a bunch of thugs stands on the rear open area of that truck. And they go around the mg road. Once they find a bike parked of an unmarked area, they cop gives sign and these thugs just jump and drag the thing and load it on the truck and goes away. You got to see the kind of achievement these guys wear on their face after grabbing a bike this way. The whole episode doesnít looks like itís done for enforcement of law. Intentions are clearly some thing else.
I am yet to see a car towed away in that thing. Donno how they do that...

Hmm, I actually like this car. But the only thing that puts me off is that the owner has tried to copy the front of the lancer. But it looks really good in the 2nd pic, IMO. BTW, is that a tow truck in front of the car in the 2nd pic? ..lol

Thats how it works here too. Just that they manage to pick up cars as efficiently as bikes too. And manage to inflict quite a bit of damage too in the process. As always, the owners can do jack about it.

There's no parking on airport road. But lots on Brigade road...Probably that's why you haven't seen any. I do see that. Atleast twice a week.
