Saw this armoured vehicle carrying dynamite sticks, stuck in the traffic jam along with us due to Land slides near Joshimath.
It was carrying explosives for the blasting to be done to huge stones lying on the road.
It wanted to say NON OTHER THEN AUTHORIZED PERSONS, but painted AN AUTHORIZED PERSON,NOT ALLOWED TO OPEN THE DOOR .

Reminds me of an incident a couple of years back. A client from US came visiting. While we took him around Bangalore, he commented in a very surprised tone, "India is much more developed than we give credit for. Look at all the gay couples strolling without a care in the world!" He was referring to the common Indian trait of guys (unconsciously) holding hands in India <wide grin>.

Coution!

What's the point in writing 'Power Brake - Caution' anyway?

Cosworth sells replacement filters, endcans, adjustable cam gear, crank pulley, flywheel for Fords, Maruti Suzuki... May be the owner has a replacement Filter / endcan running in the Figo.

Quote:

Cosworth has launched its first range of air filters for Indian cars. The filters boast of a meshed polyester non woven synthetic medium that makes it robust and provides superior filtration. Designed to fit into the air box, they have exceptional dust retention capacity. The enhanced surface area increases the rate of air intake that boosts the performance of the car. They are oil-free and can be easily washed using soap-water solution.

I like the Sticker though

He wants to tell the whole world that "dont be under impression that Amby is a sluggish car and will not STOP instantly when brakes applied"
Take Care It will stop suddenly as it is having P O W E R B R A K E S.

Look at what we have here:

From the stickers, i've understood a few things:

- He loves the Thar, but finds it impractical. So gets the sticker instead.

- He is a huge fan and staunch Fashion TV.

There are Cosworth airfilters available in the market for the Figo and like the K&N sticker they give those chrome decal when you buy those filters. So its not an uncommon thing!

And those sunblinders are actually perforated one's which usually doesnt affect visibility

I see nothing wrong about this car except for the "Finger" note!

There is indeed nothing 'wrong'. But it still is wacky. Not the Cossie sticker, but the other stickers on the boot-lid. And it's wacky because you don't find it on cars on a regular basis.

It's great to see someone in Bangalore who loves to laugh, despite the traffic!
