After almost two years I finally had the chance of meeting the owner of this Suzuki Alto SS40 in person!
Apart from its styling it is already quite a rare one: it is one of the first SS40s in the Netherlands and therefore it also has the metal bumpers instead of the later plastic ones.
A new addition is this takeyari tail pipe:
The car itself would draw enough attention of oom Agent (as we call cops in the Netherlands) and as the takeyari is most probably very illegal in the Netherlands (no objects are allowed to stick out of the bodywork) it is made detachable.
And as you can see on the rear window: I handed out a bosozoku style sticker which the owner immediately applied to the car. Thanks!
On this inside I found this neat little scale model of the car sitting on the dash:
To prevent this car creating a black hole through recursion the scale model doesn’t have a small scale model on its dash.
In the back of the car there was this low tech inboard entertainment system, talk about periodically correctness!
Also coil-overs were supposed to be mounted before the meeting but there was not enough time to do so.
I think this car is one of the best builds I’ve seen so far to create a kaido racer outside Japan and if the coil-overs are mounted it will undoubtedly make it even closer to the top!This entry was posted in car feature and tagged Bosozoku Kei cars, car feature, kei car, oil cooler, ss40, suzuki alto, takeyari by banpei with 7 comments
