Thumbs down japanese cars with euro plates

lately I have seen Japanese cars (especially Honda) with Europlates WTF what's wrong with this people is not a euro car why they are so stupid? 3 days ago I saw a modded TC and he have a Japanese front plate it makes sense, it looks good

Last weak I saw a accord with a Europlate WTF?? I was launching my ass off

and today I saw a Civic Si with a front body kit and a Europlate again WTF?


Euro plates are for Euro cars I don't see why they don't get it

well, those although BMWs are made (and designed) in the USA. Hondas are also made in Canada ind Alabama. Fords are also made (and designed) in Europe... Would it be weird to have the Euro plate on Ford?

Yup - the Porsche-VAG relationship is detailed here: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedi...G_Alliance.svg

I'm surprised to see in the OP's diagram -- Renault owns a big portion of Nissan? I had no idea.

lotus is owned by a Malaysian state owned car company called Proton, not sure it owns 100% of lotus or not, i am guessing it does

yea, acura isn't listed with honda, and infiniti isn't listed with nissan.

audi is part of vag (as it is listed).

proton is supposedly in two separate discussions with vag and gm.

i think it's because they were from European decent.

I'm Portuguese and I'd say over 50% of the people in my town are Portuguese too. I see non-European cars with European plates all the time. I guess it's a sense of pride.
