i dont think its real.all the articles and all make it seem real but i doubt it really happens.when we (car enthusiasts) own a car we get attached to it and theres no way a person would do that to his car unless he changes cars like clothes !!

Interesting . . . . . very interesting.

But tell me guys, why can't it be real ? Such things r happening all the time.
And this is obviously not meant for the car u're attached to but rather for the car u want to detach yourself from and make some money at the same time
People abroad always have such spare cars lying around and hogging valuable garage space.

I think it is an enterprise started by a few Dharavi guys who probably migrated down under !!

hey dude this is definitly fake but there could be other organisations like this doing a similar thing.dude firstly this is against the law. advertiseing in such a way will bring huge publicity and when ever you are doing something against the law we stay away from publicity so if it were real they wouldnt want all the extra attention they would just want the people who are intesrested in it to know and would definitly advertise in a differnt wway

I feel this site is owned jointly by the insurance companies where they try to track owners who opt for this concept and try to extract money from them. This could be a trap, not very sure but this is my opinion...

even if it is a fake thing im sure the person who set it up can still be tracked down right
thats if any insurance company wants to./
