    Did you see the photos of the 22 carat gold car unveiled in India today? Looks like a variation of a quilt.

    Obviously someone has too much money and too little sense!! What a waste!! It's not the too much money, it's how you use it that counts.

    I do not like it. Just think how many people could have something to eat or a warm quilt to cover up with at night.

    I read the article. They are basing the "value" of the car ONLY on the current price of bullion and the gem stones. In other words - the car itself has no value. No big surprise as currently they can't give the Nano away if they wanted to.

    BTW - for those of you who don't know, the automobile manufacturer Tata also owns Jaguar and Land Rover.

    So sad.

    Hope it is prettier in person than in picture. Since I couldn't afford it anyways guess my opinion wouldn't count. What a waste of a good car though.

    Now that was smart, use a "smart car" so they didn't have to use as much gold. :lol:
