i'm sure you have brother i would have too if i had the car to permit me to do that. not allowed to take my friends brothers car out for wild spins just round the block while he waits in the porch of the blding. so no chance of exceeding 80kmph. ask someone to stand midway and take a video of the car comming and going. would be fun

Rishi, please post pics in 800x600 size only, these large pics are a pain to scroll through & take a lot of time to load. Thanks.

And is that an 800 chop job next to the Jeep?

Maybe the owner a had dream of owning a Lexus GS300,Honda crx,BMW and a celica but because he coulden't afford he punished a poor helpless Cielo in frustration

BTW is there a white Mercedes benz 190 in the background

Yup, seems like a Cielo & they seem to be pretty popular for chop jobs, already seen a few around!! But you gotta applaud the guts of the chap, BMW badge, Matiz headlights, four fog lamps on the roof (or what's left of it!), spoiler et al!! And above all "Stylish Boy" written on the windshield!!!

Waise, the garage says "Bareillevi", wonder why the mechanic ran away from Bareilly to open a shop there! Maybe he did some similarly nice jobs there too!!

If I remember well, Jodhpur also had a Delahaye 135 MS with the famed Figoni et Falaschi coachwork and Cotal electric pre select gearbox. Looked similar to this, but in solid red bearing plates "Jodhpur 34", and partly exposed headlights.
