@pip-bip I just now got past the paint job, and noticed the rusty flat tires! So I examined, and have come to the conclusion this is far cooler than any Starsky and Hutch Torino, as it is a mid- late 70's Civic truck! Best internet car so far today!
They do, indeed, have a license. I would guess Jeep can take on Mahindra over design because the Thar DOES look a lot like the Wrangler, I do not dispute that for a second.....but because of that license and their shared history, it's a sort of "well, of course it would" situation....and, I guess because Jeep is a 'bigger' company globally, Mahindra loses on the legal dispute battleground, which is sortof a shame in a way.
