Was that accord black?

The same dude sold the Black V6 Accord and picked up the Silver 'Rex, that's why. Dunno about the wheel deal though...

Yes, it was black. The guy had a "FOR REGN" sticker in place of license plates for almost a year! (Ahh.. Don't remember. But more than 6 months, for sure! )

RX-8: Saw the car and the front and rear wheel combination looks really weird.

Default saw it aswell

I spotted the same mazda yesterday it was parked on langford road near eagle security. Along with two accords (black & white).

Just how long can it run on temp plates?
Coz this one has been running a mighty long time.

IMO, the first time I spotted it it looked good and all exotic
Now it just looks all dated and pretty normal, even with the whole temp appeal.

Default spotted yesterday

As the pani puris loom ahead of me, I spot a jungle beast attemping to conform to the ritual of paralel parking.

I rush forward, navigating around the chaat man, lo and behold an entire S-class was brought to light from behind all those Puris

Nevertheless I continued on my journey and caught the Beast after it had conquered the parking ritual.

Thought I'd get some good pictures and try to sit inside. But the damn driver wanted 1k to look inside. what the F***? The attitude of that twit ruined my attempt...

Anyway here are a few pics, kindly excuse the quality of pics from my mobile.

he probably just wants the 'new car' look to it. temp reg=no insurance=big trouble with auto buggers zipping and zapping across the roads. next time somebody spots the car, pls put a note on his windshield telling him to set right the tyre mismatch. Otherwise, I just love that car. Its a brilliant car for drifting.

a huge black Landcruiser had come yesterday to our shop. No pics though. But it was definitely brand new. Direct import from Japan. It was the 2009 model. Not the Prado. The proper LC. It's the one which is going to be launched soon by TKML.
