A locally rebodied Hindustan Trekker taxi is seen here. Quite a rare sight now. Come to think of it, it was a rare sight earlier too!

I again clicked a Tata tow truck in Kolkata a few days ago, when I was there:

This model was phased out by Tata Motors around 1976-77. So it is about 35years old. While that's a tribute to the vehicle's longivity, I wonder how the owner manages to get it passed from RTO authorities. MV Rules don't permit plying of CVs older than 15 years, isn't it?

Here is one for the truck afficionados, the ultimate off roader! Not sure if it has been posted before.

Note the double radiators, how does the rear one get airflow ?

Ever heard of Lafly trucks? They were French, did a lot of military lorries, and their diesel trucks were advertised in Hindi in India. Never heard of them before this. British and American trucks like Albion, Mack were seen, but not French trucks like this.

Incidentally I saw this very truck in Pawana close to Lonavala a few months back, but missed a shot. Thanks for saving me the effort!
