This is a Splitscreen VW Microbus which used to be an Ambulance. She was misused at a party in Pune, a bar was set up inside. Lovely chilled nectar was flowing. The bar counter was put up in place of the stretcher.

Cheers!!!

As we continue to go off topic, here is a most endearing specimen of a survivor on Bombays mean streets. 95% m-seal, 5% sheetmetal.

This Ambulance requires a mercy killing. And you hardly see them anymore. The doors were always falling off, the panels always fit badly. Actually, shame on the manufacturer for such poor quality.

Again no cheers, for bad quality
