If you’re into Nihon steel, it’s hard not to feel like an old geezer these days. The cars we grew up with are now being lauded and collected as classics, and their parts are getting ever scarcer. Many of us probably don’t have the the physical ability or the will to wrench for 48 hours straight on a cold garage floor subsisting on nothing but instant ramen anymore. So, why not live into it by getting the newly released Bride racing seat rocking chair?
The Bride Emperor is the racing seat company’s latest product and actually, it’s just a set of rocking chair legs. The seat isn’t included, but you can bolt a number of different Bride seats (the full list is below) to them. Supposedly, it’s perfectly balanced so that the seat can stand on its own when the racing seat is affixed.
Bride says that because 2020 was such a stressful year, they wanted to create a comfortable and relaxing space where you can sit and unwind. Each set of legs is hand made and thus limited to a run of just 10 per month.
As is the case for these types of products, it ain’t cheap. The legs will cost ¥69,000 ($660 USD), seat not included. But, if you’re planning to put your car back to stock and have an extra seat lying around, this is one use for it.
