    Default I like gold!

    Everyone should have gold headers at least once!




    Looks more stylish than the gold taps in a cheap and nasty Trump condo.

    I'll bite. What car were these pipes in? RHD Seven? Never been a fan of gold colored cars.

    A bit off to the one side. A good motorcycle mechanic (BMW) once told be that the key to not bluing chrome exhaust pipes was to take it easy until you could build up a layer of carbon inside the pipe, so the exterior did not get too hot. Seems most old (boxer) BMW and Triumph riders failed on that account.

    The first 3 letters of the VIN, 'SDK', in the photo identify it as a Caterham. Its RHD as you correctly saw the steering column going through the middle of the pic.

    I decided to try my first track day of the year on Tuesday at Donington. Maybe a little early....
