Default Pondicherry Collection

Was on vacation in pondicherry this week and wandering around the streets with my camera, came across this sweet treasure trove. Needless to say I left with a grin on my face. Will let the pictures speak...

The paint scheme on that Fiat looks amazing and well suited to that shape. Can you please put up some pics of this from the side and rear too ?

I hope it isn't going to be repainted in the same incorrect colour scheme it is now....but the bumper overriders, being chrome, shouldn't be painted over either!

Aside, good to see these cars also being given attention these days!

I think they are trying to give a new look to the cars with the new colour schemes.
