Exclamation Pics : Cadillac Escalade EXT in Mumbai

I always seem to run into these awesome machines when my camera is at home!!!

This time i spotted the awesome Cadillac Escalade EXT....in skyline GTR Blue.....Opposite Thousand Oaks On East Street guarded by 2 Uniformed security guards!!!!!
And as i am crazy about pickup trucks, i absolutely flipped!!!!!

Rushed home picked up my Camera and when i got there it had left already!!!!

Pics of the car from my Motorola V3 at Taj Lands End Bandra yesterday evening. Not very good pics as was pouring like crazy and very gusty winds.




Cheers and Happy Hunting

Why the bull-bar grill!!! Totally ruining the look of the car .... Putting such guards on cars like the Qualis make it look stronger but this one already looks Mighty Strong! Putting that guard is totally ruining the front end looks.

Not a very avid fan of pick up trucks ... ("IF" it were me!!)I would pick the Escalade SUV over this one ... preferably black ... and aah!! 20" chrome spinners to go with it !!

If it had an Arab reg no. it might be brought down here for a short period of time. You can get down cars like that
