Hey! Thats my elder brother's closest friend driving the car!!!!
Kee haal chaal Harman bhai - if you ever read this

That beast is an american muscle car for sure. I'll reconfirm from my brother's friend about model/make. Will surely try and get some better and HQ pics as well.

Oh and lest i forget, whenever Harman drives in to our high-rise apartment block, the ground beneath starts rumbling. THAT's american muscle to the core!!!!!


Pics coming up as soon as possible

Hi,

These two pics have certainly brought back a lot of memories

And i'm sorry but i forgot to mention, He also had a deep purple tanked bullet with a 700cc (350cc twin)engine. He styled it on the lines of a roadster harley and it was a very well executed design.

Knowing him, and i can confirm that he too is a car/bike freak, he might still have it.yeyeye

pics of that beauty too if i'm able to catch him by this weekend!

cheers
