Yep.

Speaking of stories, Ithink I should resume my auto writing, Its been months since I wrote any articles. maybe I can start again with a story on your Fiat restoration Gogi?

I'll try and put up a scan of my Lancia article too or better still show you the issue.

In an old Dilip Kumar film "Dastaan" which I was watching on telly a few days ago, they actually threw a 47 buick down the mountain side for an accident shot. Im sure the car must've been put together again fo rsome action shot for another movie later
bhai i said his brilliance involved in engineeering in the sense of giveing the car life not about it being original. i appriciate the car not what it has inside after all it was a mustang. nothing on it is original like you too have pointed out.
the car was intact when it came to him and he has chopped the hood and the fenders to give it the more sporty hot roddish look.
if you have seen shaan the movie and i am sure you must have. in that two mustangs were destroyed in an action sceene.

Ive seen the car closely at Juhu Bandh and noticed that even the upholstery is more of a custom job. Why I say this is because ive seen other cars being restored there too and those jobs are pretty detailed so he must have chosen to modify this Mustang. IMHO one should not do any bling on a Mustang. Please tell him to loose that horrid muffler tough and the ugly wheels too
words outta my mouth buddy.
I think it was better to leave it as the junk that it was than to scandalize a classic into something thats even difficult to recognize from the original now. Extreme opinion here? Extreme car dude...!

Whether the car is restored to its original condition or not, but its a job worth appreciating because its not really that easy to bring this mustang back to life.

Been seeing this baby over the past few weeks baby converted to RHD and in a wet look glossy black deep and rich. Had chrome wheel rims shouting out bling. Perfect for a old school Rockstar. Neat and ageless piece. Its got a formidable persona/character to it now.
