The Maruti 800 Pick-up

Car modification is a craze for many and a booming business for some. I have seen some vehicles transmogrify into altogether something else. But here's one that I really liked. Not much done, only a little sawing and adding the beams. The erstwhile bestseller on Indian roads - the Maruti 800 (recently overtaken by its much younger sibling Alto) is also a pick-up van.

Saw it parked outside the office yesterday and took a few quick snaps. It seemed to be modified from an older variant of the 800. Interestingly it didn't have any number plate.
