Whenever I look at this picture I can’t help but smile. Although I’m critical about how a lot of cars are put together (it is after all my business to analyze such things), sometimes it’s nice to just get a good laugh out of it and not think to deeply into it.
I took this picture while driving to work one day. I particularly enjoyed thinking about the scenario of the owner contemplating the decision as to whether to give the Accord a dual exhaust or install a bumper which does not fit a custom dual exhaust. Clearly there would be no money left over to paint the bumper regardless of the decision, but this guy wanted it all. So rather than trim the bumper to accommodate the dual exhaust he sort of just “made it all work” and let the second exhaust dangle wherever it may. As a result it made my morning considerably more enjoyable.
When I think of SEMA somehow I can’t help but think of cars like this.
With that being said, I can’t wait for Tokyo Auto Salon.
