Car-achi # 18

Car toh achi hai per aik haftey ke liye hai sirf “was what my friend had to say when I was taking this pic. “Shukar hai aik haftay ke liye hee hai, purzay nikalney ka time nahi milayga “was my reply.

You can spot this one these days, thanks to IDEAS episode. Good car. Our police must have felt differently driving it. Unlike their normal 19th century antique mobile type vehicles this one does seem to belong to a Modern police force car. Traffic police or otherwise. Even for few days but its good one. So this week’s achi car is this Toyota corolla. Can easily be seen near Expo or Shahra-e-Faisal.

    If you go to Dreamworld , on the way , there is the National highway Police office with a bunch of Prados , Corollas and even Sportages standing outside covered in dust and catching rust what a waste

    All good things come to an end, i never thought i would see the truth behind this quote but IDEAS presents us with a perfect example.Even if only for a few days lets enjoy it,it is out attempt those countries with whom we can never be at par with.

    NHP has excellent resources, i have seen them in action once, they were very efficient however seeing their resourced rot is a pity.

    I don’t think that police cars are metro cabs on rent, however i could be wrong.From what i heard they were newly imported cars painted for ideas which will be repainted and sold again as 0 meter cars.

    We will be at par with just any… just a matter of time…i have not doubt in it. its the time of asia and asian tigers..
    oh and by the way… in islamabad these police cars are a norm.

    first thing first THESE ARE NOT METROS ON RENTAL.
    seriously what do you think our govt have no money ?
    and it does’nt like to spend all that? those are all new squad cars… if you ever visit Jinnah bridge by chance then you’ll find dozens of new imported squad cars(yea i noticed this one is local made) all these are being imported by our rich government…

    btw todays main event of IDEAS 2006 was to be held at PAF Base masoor and the route of layri expressway was also artificially beautified (with flower pots) and there were heavy contingents of army,rangers,Naval Police and elite force… some of the roads on the route were however pathatic and i can just imagine those blazing fast motorcades to have a bumpy ride….

    @MB btw nice pic , which camera,mobile was used to take this snap?

  8. MB (unregistered) on November 24th, 2006 @ 11:28 pm

    DOCTOR :
    Frankly, personally i wont rate this a good pic. It could have been a lot better if i had set correct settings but anyhow, so far so good. Camera was DXG 568, 5.1 MP.

    how can they just vanish after expo? It is just a toyota, its not like Hummer or anything. Why r we getting to excited. A little toyota like that should be the least the gov. should do for Karachi. The image is very blurry and of low quality.

    how much dough did the organisers of ideas2006 throw at the for such royal treatment on the record and under the table….not just for educational purpose…iam thinking about my birthday bash next year…:-p

    Have you guys read this Employer keeps child in confinement. She hired a boy just for 9k which is much lower than the going rate and I bet no one will able to harm her for keeping that boy in confinement.

  14. mansoor (unregistered) on November 25th, 2006 @ 10:26 am

    yea.. the car’s are on rent, not exactly metrocabs, but from other rental agencies around the city.

  15. KINGDOM (unregistered) on November 25th, 2006 @ 1:43 pm

    Police cars have a different number plate … Metro Cabs/Rent-a-cars have same yellow number plates … check the number plate .. it should tell the real story

  18. naved (unregistered) on November 25th, 2006 @ 7:02 pm

    looks lik a cop car from need for speed series..LMAO

  19. K.A. (unregistered) on November 25th, 2006 @ 8:10 pm

    Metros or not, but this also happened on IDEAS 2004. These toyotas in police livery were around for a week and now they’ve been seen after two years. I wonder if they’re the same or new ones.

  20. Rick Shaw (unregistered) on November 26th, 2006 @ 12:29 am

    why dont someone go & ask the cop? I would have if i was in Karachi.

  21. Ahsan (unregistered) on November 26th, 2006 @ 6:48 pm


    No use of these things except for escort … if they try actually CHASING some car, they are going to either lag behind or flip.E

    Street racers are a whole different story … :)

  22. Hasan (unregistered) on November 26th, 2006 @ 10:25 pm

    Our friend Saqib is right

    … all the vehicles were hired on rent (or may be by force) from Karachi Radio Cab service … and number plates were specially issued for the event (thats why the number plates only stated SP-17 (as in Sindh Police 17).
