Arre nahi yaar, these pictures have also been taken by a colleague. We'll go there this weekend. I see a Merc around too. What say?

Btw, did you notice your logo on the windscreen frame (LHS of the car)

Hehe, all the nonsense on this car has been painted Yellow to show it indeed is nonsense.

Here are hi-res images for a clearer view of the crap that sticks on this car :

maybe if the yellow is replaced with white and the original wheels are fitted it would look good(if not original atleast the mahindra ones),alloy wheels take the chram away from this machine

Willy's Jeep.....hmm, brings pleasant memories of my childhood,when I hitched many a ride on my uncle's Govt jeep in Orissa. I clearly remember all such vehicles had 'Left Hand Drive' painted boldly on the rear---perhaps a legal requirement. I also remember the driver saying it is a pain to overtake with it, as the driver, sitting on the left, often did not have a good view of the traffic coming in the opposite direction. In those days, even highways were single lane, but with sparse traffic.

Yeah, I cross it everyday on my way to college. Rather, I take a detour to cross it everyday The Savoy is a really neat original car, though abandoned by the owner for the last few years, and looks terrible now. Its parked in the corner of this same garage, with a landmaster amongst other junk. Theres even a "Tarzan"!

If I'm right,the Jeeps used to carry guns that could blow up tanks and other artillery vehicles.
Click on the link below to see an anti-tank gun.

They used to be mounted towards the back of the Jeep,and 2 personnel standing beside the gun would handle the firing.
