Finally the Gypsy come’s home
I bought the vehicle (if it could be called a vehicle, as the state it was in) in the 1st week of December 2010. This was exactly 6 months after I sold my 2006 MPFI Gypsy last June. When I sold the gypsy in June I thought that I wouldn’t buy another one, Ever. And this is when I remember being told by a friend “Bappe, Whatever you do, I know that you would buy a Gypsy in the next 6 months”. Its believed that predictions don’t come true, but in my case, it surely did. Now 6 months after I bought this vehicle, which WAS, as friends termed it, “A RUST BUCKET” now stands totally transformed.

It was a very long and tedious job and I am very sure that no one else could have pulled it off. I whole heartedly salute AA of AA for AA. Let me explain Aman Ahluwalia of Auto Attitudes for Amazingly Awesome work. Also I would like to thank the team of workers at the workshop who have toiled and worked hard in the peak of the summer months to bring the vehicle in the current state. I salute you guys.
Finally the D-day was this Saturday June 4, 2011. I couldn’t believe it that I was standing there taking the delivery of my old but new vehicle.
Now I leave you with some pictures that we took at the workshop. Will try to take better quality pictures in a couple of day and post it too.
Another aspect that many would like to know is how much did I spend on the vehicle. Well, the answer to that is, this vehicle is priceless, but by the time I am finished with the rebuild I believe that the total cost would be an approximately 15-20% less than the price of a brand new gypsy. yes, this should be the range. In this range I have included the complete rebuild cost, cost of the vehicle, goodies that I plan to put in the vehicle like front off-road bumper, air-conditioning, in car entertainment, fog lamps, etc etc etc. However I think if I stop the buck now, that is as is where is, the price should be considerably less, though I haven’t calculated.
