      Also from North Korea, the Mercedes 190 rebadged as a Kaengsaeng 88 or a Pyongyang 4.10. Could be an "unauthorized" rebadge though.<p><IMG SRC="http://lh4.ggpht.com/_Bihgg3aiQRE/SS8RBC_UySI/AAAAAAAAEec/zGFSZTiQtFM/pyongyang%204.10%20herkansing.jpg" BORDER="0">

      My first car was a hand-me-down 83 Nissan Pulsar hatch. Timing chain went and when I dropped it off at the mechanic, he said that I had an Alfa engine in there. I thought he was pulling my leg......and now I see he was not wrong.<p><TABLE WIDTH="90%" CELLSPACING=0 CELLPADDING=0 ALIGN=CENTER><TR><TD><i>Quote, originally posted by <b>Garbus</b> &raquo;</i></TD></TR><TR><TD CLASS="quote">Alfa Romeo ARNA.

      That Honda Crossroad is truly weird, I thought that the Rover-Honda collaboration only produced rebadged Hondas. For instance, here's a Rover 416i, more well known as a Honda Integra:<br><IMG SRC="http://i49.tinypic.com/16760ra.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>This is also something that most people have forgotten - a VW Taro (Toyota Hilux):<br><IMG SRC="http://i50.tinypic.com/10elx7p.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>Saab 600 (Lancia Delta) was also quite the oddball, since it was sold exclusively in Sweden.<br><IMG SRC="http://i49.tinypic.com/wkffv7.jpg" BORDER="0">

      Toyota was looking for a partner in Europe to have the Hilux manufactured in Europe. VW got the contract, and got to sell it's own version in return.
