Bootleggers Choice: Mahindra Pickups!


Last week Indian police caught two individuals attempting to illegally transport IMFL (Indian Made Foreign Liquor) from Haryana to Jaipur (around 150 miles) after a police chase involving officers from three police stations.

The two suspects taken into custody were driving a Maruti (Indian Suzuki) while another two individuals got away after escaping the chase and abandoning their Mahindra pickup.

The suspects avoided police barricades and attempted to create their own road blocks by tossing the illicit booze onto the roadway in hopes of stopping traffic. Needless to say the Mahindra was the better vehicle for evading police, not that Mahindra Planet condones such behavior.

It does leave one to wonder if Mahindra’s original working name for the TR20 and TR40 pickups, Appalachian, was intended to appeal to American moonshiners or bootleggers of the southeastern United States.

Some times we ignore the promotion freebies that come with the motor oil that we buy.. Recently i bought a Castrol promotion pack for car but wasn't informed by the dealer that the scratch card offer to enter the lucky draw to go to South Africa World cup games and the dealer has assured gifts that we can collect at the time of purchase. Make sure you ask your service dealers for the contest details if you buy one in the near future and collect your assured gift :)
