Was driving to work today after a week of being in Delhi on work...and I spot this Smart car at Marine Drive. Driven by a woman in her 30's, she was briefly stopped by a "pandu" for blocking the U-turn lane at a signal!

The pandu let her off though, guess he couldn't make out what the heck she was doing driving a multicoloured rickshaw!

These are the only pics i could take though, as I was driving, and had to take a left for work, while she went straight!

Very SMART RTech.. Though I didnt like the colours on that one.
I'd seen another "BRABUS" Smart at Sanghi a few days back, when I went to pick up my car. And that looked BABE! (this too looks sweet, but WHY YELLOW AND BLACK)..
Thanks for the Pics brah..

Damn...I know I don't have the best digicam in the world...but these are not cam phone quality! lol.. They have just been resized so it loads easily here.

And no Rehaan, same old Samsung digimax 240...a leftover from my dad. Scouting the market for a new one, in the 10-13,000 range. Probably the new Canon A75.

love the car
hate the colours
any ways
looks like people have started obeying traffic rules .
well at least some of them except for the guy in the camry in front of the zen.
if only people will obey rules when traffic is scarce.
on marin drive its very tough to overtakes with idiots doing 40 on the overtaking lane etc.

cheers

If this the car which was at Autobahn its the same one which was lyin at Choksis. It was red in colour before and now I guess they must have changed it.. Choksis is famous for changing colours of the cars he keeps

I've seen this one.... once at Hill Road and another time at Siddhivinayak Temple. Man, you should see the astonishment on people's faces after they see this!
