    I must agree this picture is NOT Karachi. but nevertheless lets investigate it through.

    These tractors appear to be brand new, and since we see a few lined up it could very well be the warehouse of tractors awaiting to be sold. I can only assume these are all awaiting to be sold and the brand name is Marathon Tractors (if there is such a brand). Another wild guess could be that these are all lined up inside the Karachi Port awaiting clearance.

    Jony – you have to provide us some additional hints to helping us solve this mystery.

    I hope other WIK ppl don’t pick up this trend from Jonybr, otherwise for next one we’ll be seeing a close up of a bunch of fruits in here :P

    These are road cleaners. They must be staged near the KMC office area.

  9. Zag (unregistered) on September 28th, 2005 @ 8:00 pm

    There actually are road cleaners in Karachi??!?!?!?

    love the picture..
    looks like they are waiting for the green sign so they can race with each other

    @Zag – As a joke I was almost going to post an image of my SHOE – and would have let you guys guess where in Karachi this shoe came from ;) that would have been fun ;)

    @Saroosh – green light to Go straight into all those garages in front ;) but I do like the shiny new look to them ;)

    @JonyBr – Area? – well yeah that might help – but don’t disclose the location lets us all ponder over it, I might agree a hint of the location might help and maybe force a few into a drive around the area to land the correct answer. DONT SPILL THE BEANS YET – hold out for a little bit more –

    @Anathema – whoohooo – where are you need your expertise

  12. JonyBr (unregistered) on September 28th, 2005 @ 11:26 pm

    Okay here is some info if that helps.

    This pic was taken when we went shopping, parked the car lil far bcos of no parking available and when walking i saw these. I have no idea what these vehicles r for, maybe these run along with marathon runners :p but there were like dozen of these.

    So its (1) a place near somewhere where u can go for shopping. (2) It is busy part of the city where u hardly find parking etc etc.

    Any ideas now?

    teeth maestro sayeen mere ko jawab nahin maaloom sayeen.

    but according to Johny’s hints, id have said Gulfway considering the underpass construction. i do know the Governor has said some raod cleaners have been ordered for the city but didnt expect delivery so soon, besides that would have made Dawn Metro headlines.

    but gulf does not have such shutters if im correct. so i’ll say tariq road. not saddar at all.. too spacious for that. im sorry but iver never been to hyderi to know what that market is like (yes, if u want me to lose WIK then u can take pictures of he northern parts of karachi. i woukldnt know them).

  14. Hasan Mubarak (unregistered) on September 29th, 2005 @ 12:08 am

    These may be mobile Generators.
    I’m still sticked to my first answer; these surely are road cleaners…

  15. Rooster (unregistered) on September 29th, 2005 @ 12:28 am

    these are ice cream machines parked in the back of forum.

  16. abbas halai (unregistered) on September 29th, 2005 @ 12:30 am

    electronics market on abdullah haroon road.

  17. hafsa (unregistered) on September 29th, 2005 @ 12:47 am

    gulf shopping mall

  18. umar (unregistered) on September 29th, 2005 @ 1:38 am

    this is what prime minister will use on his next visit to karachi in order to prevent the traffic congestion caused by his huge convoy. it must have been parked at the airport.

  19. Fahad Fateh (unregistered) on September 29th, 2005 @ 7:02 am

    Well JONYBR was the guy who posted that pic of the clifton underpass, my guess is that this pic is somewhere near that underpass.

    “So its (1) a place near somewhere where u can go for shopping. (2) It is busy part of the city where u hardly find parking etc etc.”

    I am 90% sure its somewhere around the underpass.

  20. ACE (unregistered) on September 29th, 2005 @ 8:56 am

    ah its so simple ask JOHYBR in it … where is it then …. well neways it look lieks to me YUP road cleaners … but in karachi … wow! must have fallen from some cargo plane … neways i think i’ll go with Fahad Fateh … or must be near tarique road

  21. Anathema (unregistered) on September 29th, 2005 @ 10:43 am

    ok JonyBr: 24 hours up. kill our suspense already please?

  22. JonyBr (unregistered) on September 29th, 2005 @ 10:53 am

    This is near Zainab Market. From that caltex pump we turn left for zainab, but if u dont turn & go straight (the road will go towards avari) u will find these just around 30 feet away.

  23. Anathema (unregistered) on September 29th, 2005 @ 1:05 pm

    maybe the picture could have had a bigger backgroud to give hints. the shoe idea was good :P. komtasu cleaners i think. ot road cleaners then, but industrial floor cleaners.

  24. JonyBr (unregistered) on September 29th, 2005 @ 1:14 pm
