Bob got delivery of his first red coloured SS80 shortly after it was launched in 1983. A couple of modifications were made on it almost immediately. A front spoiler was fabricated and the lower half was painted in silver giving this SS80 a distinct identity. Bob also drove it successfully in some hill-climbs and Autocross events.
The other white SS80 was purchased in 1985, and underwent more extensive modifications. It got made to order front spoiler, side skirts and a rear spoiler. Alloy wheels were also fitted and the seats were upholstered in Recaro seat fabric. This SS80 took Bob on many long journeys all across India.
