But Jack, they were "Lakes Pipes," not "Laker Pipes," weren't they?

Great little clip which brought back fond memories. Thanks for pointing us to it.

We called them Lakers.

His horn went beep, beep, beep. How do you get this car out of second gear? HMB

We used to take our flat-trackers and TT bikes out to the dry lakes north of San Bernardino on the desert where the hot rodders all took their "caps" off, made a lot of noise and went slower, or so everyone said. They then burned their fingers putting the caps back on. I heard "lakers" but "laker pipes" seems out of place. After all, if you know what "lakers" were, you didn't need to add "pipes."

Now I'm sure it's different. I doubt you can go a hundred or so among four-wheelers and picnickers without attracting trouble, and few there have ever seen functional ones, so you have to add "pipes" to set the context.

I guess I'll add "laker pipes" to my vocabulary, but grudgingly.
