There are so many accident cars that are totalled. From the front they look pristine, but from the back they are smashed up. They can be picked up for scrap rates and used for such purposes. Guess people didn't actually chop up cars in running condition.

In pune itself, on JM road, there is similar 800 used for same purpose. I think it is a accessory shop.

i love the conti so much!! hate to see it die like that if it was for real.... I guess we are too busy restoring foreign cars rather than our very own indian cars... a few like 'Edmund - restored first gen 800' i am not sure of the evolution of the design of conti on weather it was copied or purchased from someone but i cant still understand why our conti failed...:( .. i would buy it anyday..

Chopped cars,aircrafts embedded into restauratns is a big craze all over the world.
Hard Rock Cafes have lot of cars jutting out of the ceiling or hung to roofs.

Definitely an eye-catcher (and thus, purpose served).

I have seen the face of a truck being used in front of a restaurant to give a 'dhaba' feeling. Dont remember the name, it is in Ahmedabad.

If cars can be cut, why not trucks?
