Default Japanese products good for only seven years

Product support of Jap goods evaporates after seven years.
Minolta is a perfect example. It was beautifully made, but when
my 20 year old SLR needed a small part, the factory service
center told me I was SOL. Not so with Mercedes Benz. Need a
replacement interocetor, kranzafarber or krockenzoom for your
'47 MB Gull Wing, they have it in stock! My advice is to buy
Kraut.

Most cars are only stocked on parts for 7 years. I'm still able to get
parts for my 23 year old Supra OK.

My Minolta SRT-101 is still in excellent shape and still taking pictures.

Product support for lots of thing ends after 7 years.

How much do you think a part for a 1947 MG costs? Probably cheaper to
by a new Lexus...

If you have enough money, you can get a part for anything - just have
one made from scratch.

When one has collector cars, that is often the case.
