Nahi boss I'm looking for one for quite sometime & will be buying one very soon in the near future. When I do buy it, it'll be restored in the garage which is doing the Pink Cadillac/Pontiac/Impala hence the comment by me & vcash.

No idea sir, will find out & tell you. Some Caddie's belonging to Tikka are on sale but he's asking for a lot of money. You interested?

Here is a '51 Merc that has been chopped to convert it into a Coupe.

















And here is the garage owner's personal ride (one of many, I must add!!)


Mods: Owner has no issues with the plates.

The Buick Roadmaster. 3 such cars are up for sale in Delhi, if anybody wants them.


A rotting S-Class, bought as a donor/parts car.




The Wolseley again.






The owner's own Pontiac


The Pontiac shown earlier is in this state currently & nearing completion.




However, it does have one of the weirdest engines ever according to the expert! And I agree completely! Have a look yourselves!








It's a bloody V-8 cut into half to make it a inline-4 BUT the angle of the V-8 has been retained! Now isn't that unique or what!!

Note the Swing-Arm rear suspension (That's the correct type I believe)

oh lovely...you must be having a ball out there...

at first I thought i quite liked the merc chop job...on second thought im not so sure...I can understand why it was done, a 2 door is more desirable in some cases, but on a vehicle such as this, it just doesnt serve the purpose...the car still looks equally fuddy duddy, and just that bit out of place...the modern spokes, fat tyres and modern lights dont help either...

An better candidate for a job like this would be a later 110 or a 115 series merc perhaps...but then again, to each his own!

cheers

and yes, that pontiac engine is something i havent seen before...very strange...and dipping the whole damn thing in signal red, and monogrming it as your own design doesnt add to it in any way!
