Owais Mughal

I saw following photo in Raja Islam‘s collection and remained stuck at it. He took this photo in Khewra on October 6, 2008. Looking at it we can safely say that Salt Mines of Khewra are not the only tourist attraction there. But what is this thing? One can run their imagination wild. I would say it is a mixture of indigenous mechanical engineering and art. The front is devoid of any bumper, head lights or number plates. For number plates, we can argue the department of motor vehicle must be debating on how to classify this vehicle. What other details do you observe here?

    I remember seeing it for the first time in late 80’s.
    Its local name as called in Pakistan is “Dong Fong Tractor”
    Actually imported from china.

    what is hidden in the picture is the two headlights placed towards the top front of the engine. A very versitile machine
