4-Door Wide Track SIERRA from Chennai
Spotted this in Ashok Nagar area of Chennai where I was staying during my last trip there for the FISSME race. The car was spotless and looked like it had just come out of the paintshop. Waited around for a bit so that I could talk to the owner but it was already kinda late in the night.
A real treat for a Sierra lover like me. Something Telco should have done long ago.
I think the car was done by Color World in central Kerala - they specialized in adding these pseudo-gull-wing doors to Sierras and had a long list of clients from various parts of the south. They've also done wide-tracks + modified front and rear ends to the Sierra.
Did you check carefully whether it was 3-door or 4-door? The Color World Sierras featured only ONE additional door on the LHS (too risky to open the door UPWARDS on the right on a busy road, according to them). EDIT: Yes your second pic shows a door on the right too.
That rear door's insanely huge! I'd love to see the right side one open up in traffic! lol:
@Mpower: Any chance of getting some snaps with the door open?
lol i know. Imagine a biker who just cut you real bad and you want to get back at him.
the wwf term clothesline comes to mind. hehehehe.
I was looking for the cut on the door and then realised...Damn, the entire side glass opens with the door.
There was a better, more proportinate, job done on a Sierra. It was a proper 4 door.
