      The catch can, Chris. Not the Chromeo treatment!

        Not so sure the placement is a great idea. There's nothing like oil and oil lines running directly above and next to an exhaust system..

        It looks similar to a greddy catch can: http://www.roadraceengineering.com/i...dycatchcan.htm

          It may not be an issue; the car looks too clean to have ever been driven!

            No, he definitely drives it a lot. I believe he is retired and in his 70s. His must be the most eccentric 7 I've ever seen, with lots of add-ons. A real character, it would seem.

            In the rain:




            Earlier shot of the car (different doors, catch can, bonnet configuration of "gun" and giant tach):

            I haven't met this guy, but if I ever get back to Yokohama soon, I think I'll try to look him up.

              This looks like a Japanese version of Gert, only worse.

              What is the Bazooka on the bonnet for?

                Funny, I was thinking this might be what Gert's car would look like if he retired and had more time to monkey with his car, and also if maybe he started dropping acid on a daily basis. Just because these add-ons seem a bit far-fetched if they were coming from a German guy.

                I think the bazooka is just a replica bazooka, keeping with the theme established by the large Smith & Wesson decal and the artillery shells. But maybe it has a function? Maybe for blasting gaijin (foreigners)?

                    Perhaps that fella should consider this

                    Only 10 to be made for the Japanese market.

                      Nice looking but suicidal roll bar

                      It will rip straight out of its rear mount and fold if the car flips. That is why we have the strut down to the foot well.

                        I don't think that is possible.

                        Not that likely but who knows.

                        Hey, all my add-ons are purely practical for touring. Oh, well. Maybe some are just for the heck of it (head and tail lights come to mind).
                        But one thing has changed. My car used to be nice and polished and nowadays it just looks like crap.

                          That may be true but it is actually true for probably 90% of all Sevens, including mine. I am not aware that many people have that strut. Some have it for the track but whoever takes it seriously might have a cage anyway.

                            Yes, all of your additions to your car have been practical, and all of the Japanese man's have been more theatrical. But as I see it, the common thread is that his theatrical additions have been as well thought out and executed as your practical ones have been.

                              The one thing they have in common is weight.

                              As for being well thought out, well, see the post above about the proximity of oil lines to a hot exhaust. And the wing is just plain dumb. I'll buy into well fabricated but that's about as far as I can go.

                              Uber alles, though, to each his own sez I. If the dude digs it that's all that matters. Every Super 7 is an eccentricity, his is just a little (ok, a lot) more so.
