SA Mod scene Vs the world

20 February 2011 2 Comments

Just before we get into this I want to state that I am not putting our modification community down, I am purely asking a question.
As routine, I was browsing around the web looking at the type of calibre cars that we have in South Africa. This got me thinking, we have pretty much the exact same model cars and manufactures that of the USA and Europe, but yet we seldom see the type of modifying that they have in either the US or around Europe. I asked myself why this is. We have engineers that are far more capable than those in America we have fabricators and all at our disposal. So why don’t we see many of the insanely modified cars like they have in the UK or California?

All this has just got me thinking you know.. Take a look at most Americans, ok I’m not saying we should be more like Americans..! But as an example most petrol heads from the states do their own modifying, just have a look at all the build threads that you find.. Most of them are from guys in the States.
Does this all come down to budget or am I missing the bigger picture here?
I would like to know what you guys think about this.
