Funny thread, but truly, subway rings are a bosozoku thing. In japan, members of bosozoku gangs steal real subway rings and put them on their cars (usually the towe hook) to show how "badass" they are, having stolen a subway ring. Everyone else in the world seems to be buying them recently, which basically defeats the purpose.

The anti-pervert rings are a real product btw, but that's not the reason people hang them on their cars. Bosozoku have been hanging subway rings on their cars for years.

just goes to show how out of touch I am with all the new fads. I really jsut thought it was a limp ass tow hook when I saw one the other day. I didnt get it, I complained to my wife about the kids and thier stupid trends and non funtional parts and then recalled the good ole days when we made shit out of metal and fibergalss and when it broke, we fixed it and other such old car guy ramblings. All this at about 10:00 in the am when i was in line at Starbucks driving my 08 xB with 18" TSW's ( :td: ) but stock ride height because I dont like the bumps on long trips.

i hate getting older.

Haha. None of the ones I ever see, in America, online etc., are on cars that are boso at all anyway... Probably due to the fact that I've never seen a truly "boso" car in the US, let alone anyone with the pretense of being a Boso, poseur or not lol.

Ehh, it's an aesthetic, and at least things like the ring and the mis-applied koreisha and shoshinsha are indicators that you drive an old Japanese car becaues you want to, and enjoy the culture, rather than merely being a welfare receipient, as is the presumption by most people :lol:

I'd have one, but it'd probably be more attention than it's worth. Prefer rolling stealth, most of the time, with my AOPA sticker 8)

Regular Japanese police have the reputation of being rather negligent, sleeping in their little police boxes or refusing to respond to any situation which might involve violence. But, apparently, the transit police are the elite unit, theft of a subway ring is a capitol offense, and the transit police are authorized to use deadly force to prevent the theft of subway rings. Train groping, on the other hand, is not seen as a serious issue, and laws against that go unenforced while the complete resources of the elite transit police are devoted to the prevention of the theft of subway rings. (笑)

There's liking Japanese cars, and then there's trying to copy Japanese cultural cues which are most likely about as embarrassing to the Japanese, as Japanese Elvis impersonators are to anyone else.

The idea is about as low brow as stealing road cones or blowing up letterboxes, in my opinion.

Copying it for the sake of enjoying Japanese culture seems absurd and embarrassing.

Making your own subway hook or buying one, or hell, even having one in a country/area which doesnt even have a friggen subway seems about as awesome and rebellious as wearing a che guevara T shirt.

I did my own take on this on my old Triumph 2000. I used the coils I cut off the rear springs, looped an old snakeskin belt around them and riveted it together for a similar effect.

Poser style?
