Look at the dust on those awesome bikes. Wouldnt they be wrapped in some cling film during transit? maybe they are gathering dust at the customs office awaiting clearance (and bribes )

Its a Toyota Nadia minivan which was around in the late 90s. But has some other grille, maybe its made in China/Taiwan now.

Surprised that TMC is having this flown in. (I'm assuming all these were flown in because B'lore dosent have a port)

if the owners pay bribes they can get all the paper work done and get the car out in 3 days, its all about money when it comes to importing and its better to consult someone at customs pay him up and he would have looked that the car gets to you pronto...

as i said money...money...its so funny
