is this the ultimate r.a.r.e. accessory?

Postby eddypeck » Wed Feb 12, 2020 1:38 pm

There seems to be an ongoing trend of one-upmanship for the show scene kids to get the most uncommon parts and accessories.

Often the case with aftermarket parts, they're r.a.r.e. because they were rubbish in the 80/90s so not many got saved from land fill. I myself chucked a zender spoiler in a skip way back in 1998.

Anyway, I think I've stumbled across the ultimate. Thanks to 'Friends' on a German fb page I follow today I was shown this:

Intrigued?



Well by all accounts it's a machine gun case. Hung on the inside of the door.

In the iconic Polizei mk2

Speculation suggests the gun in question would have been Heckler & Koch MP5 (MP = the German Maschinenpistole).

Developed in the 60s with over a 100 variants now, it would have no doubt been in use by German law enforcement at the time and is still in favored today. It's appearance and size/shape matches the box so no reason to doubt this.

and as a little bonus extra:

A reading lamp, no doubt so the supporting officer can do the paperwork and look through police reports without distracting the driver.

Blow me away. Nice but is it really that bad in your part of the world or is it for getting around the M32/4/5 junctions?

I could, but...

1. The door opens outwards and 2. there's another guy here that's also a biker, he parks his bike just to the right of the door so I left room. Does look like you'd get another car in there doesn't it? :lol:
