What's happened to this Cadillac ???

Is it just the dust on the car or something else on that Limousine.

It is dust. It was resting there for some time, waiting for some spare part to arrive. It seems like somebody tried to splash some water on the top and left it like that.

Some shots from an automobile expo at Sooryakanthi grounds, Trivandrum. These pics are some years old.

I am not sure the bikes are only modified ones or not.

That cadillac limousine had created much public & media attention in Kerala. Mr. G. A Menon had once told to media that he wanted Keralites to think big and thats why he is using it here. I think Menon was a native of Ernakulam or Thrissur and this limousine had a little brush up in traffic at Aluva bridge (Before the second bridge came up) which became a news.

Later Nawab Rajendran moved a case against Menon citing excise laws since the limousine had a bar. I think that case was dismissed.

I saw a strange big car parked near the Mammiyur temple near Guruvayur. It was a Toyota for sure and I thought I read Alph..... and V8. Now I learn, courtesy Wikipidea, that it could be the Alphard and it comes in V6 too. I was travelling in a bus and missed to notice the regn. It was white in color.

AFAIK there are only two Alphards in the state. one's with a vehicle dealer and the other one's impounded at a police station in malappuram. both white in color
