I think that was Manish Arora's fiat and used for a Show. He had also got an Ambassador done up similarly from Autophsche for the Delhi fashion week.

BTW, one of my friend sent me this pic of Premier Padmini, any guesses from where it is or whether it is still on display somewhere ??
We have a threat on "HOT RODS", now we need a threat on "CUSTOMS".

Well even as far as sculptures go its ugly, jarring and amatuerish. Sorry but I have seen better.

Besides, henceforth the car is impractical as far as usage is concerned!!
Where are the door knobs?
And is it just me or do the wheels really look photoshopped in pic#2 ?

Eoooughhh... ! This is the pits man. Besides, it's sacrilege. Absolutely no offence intended to the artist in question, but.. umm, is this art ?

A long time back, while driving thru rural areas, i remember seeing dung being dried on scrapped fiats and ambys. This car reminds me of those things! Sad that a dukkar underwent this fate!
