Nice find Sajands. That is a Mercedes SLK 200 I presume. I don't know if it falls under the 'hair-dressers' category!

And that's a 3rd generation GMC Suburban and also known as the Chevrolet Veraneio in the Brazilian market. It was made between the early '70s to the early '90s. This one looks like an '85 Suburban

spotted this TLC on my way to Airport. Sorry for poor photo, the airport Volvo was quicker than the TLC which was very slow!

@ Scorcher, preetam_KORG, Car-e-ok and suhaas307,

Thanks a lot guys, i know guys triple riding on a scooter next to the SLK looks like they are on the SLK.

Guess what, the Chevy had 2 old men inside and I guess they were learing to get in terms with this beast. Could not get a front pic of this beauty. If this could have been well maintained then it would have been awsome.

Oh if it was well maintained it would've been amazing to the say the least!

Nothing like 'em good ol' American 'Trucks' eh? hey're such beauties I tell you! Muscle cars and 'Trucks'! The best part of the American auto market!

Agree to Disagree dude, a bit off topic but I must say that that is all that is part of the american auto industry.
Absolutely nothing called handling and big rumbling V8's.

OT: Yup! Old fashioned rumbling big-block V8s up front, mated to automatic 'boxes that drive only the rear wheels. Aim straight and shoot! They're nice in their own way. The way they deliver raw torque and power is astonishing! But somehow I'd still prefer precision, scalpel-based, German/Italian thoroughbred!

+1 to that!
The graphics are totally ruining the look of the car.

I too feel the same. Body graphics make that 1 crore car look ugly.

@RagingBull : That 2000th post is long overdue. We are all eagerly waiting.

Bangalore be ready for a spanking new golden Z4 on our streets maybe in a week's time.

Oh and one more thing, spotted a Gunmetal Grey Rangie Vogue and a huge white Toyota Alphard at he opening of the elevated highway project inauguration, very heavy security, so didn't risk taking pictures. The cars were lined up for a pre-inauguration run on the flyover. Spotted around 1:30 PM

Saw a silver Bentley FS, can't say speed or not. Looked amazing on the road. Somehow I suppose it was not the speed. Sadly no pics, as their was heavy traffic and I was on a bike ,the car was coming on the other side of the road.
