I dont think so ... coz when i saw it in the initial stages it was a pile of junk ( almost ) !! These alloys were imported and then put on .. they have spokes like the bikes but trust me u'll need one guy 2 just keep cleaning them with a lil tooth brush !!! And im sure this car will only get driven very rarely so he can afford to mantain the alloys but a dirt freak like me on myterrain .... NO BLOODY WAY !! I'd rather drive than spend time cleaning my alloys ...

cheers

Just enlarged and figured it out. Its the genius tutu dhawans website. (www.tutudhawan.com).

Hes the absolute best India has got in terms of:

1. Dieselisation of petrol cars
2. Restoration of rare vintage cars.

it surely is undoubtedly smart. im sure it would be simply great for sunday afternoon drives for the owner man(lucky chap). . by the ways guys for those really interested in vintage cars theres this really smart one which has been restored, its silver in colour but is always under covers. you can check it out at the petrol pump when you go down peddar road twards babulnath. i didnt know much about vintages then but it surely was very smart.the rear wheels were half covered. if someone can try to get hold of thie pics. its always parked at the petrol pump.

hey x, no not that one that pump is opposite to the sophia's lane right? this one is further down the road just around the corner before the turn for babulnath(opp RTI) and its on the left(opposite side of the road). he has just this one vintage(though its not really old but old enough). its always under covers as i said.
