      Well, I would say Allies.
      Built in America under a partnership between the Chrysler Corporation and Mitsubishi Motors.
      Hence the Diamond(Mitsubishi) Star(Chrysler) Motors moniker.
      Initially Diamond-Star Motors was a 50-50 joint venture between Chrysler and Mitsubishi. However, in 1991 the Japanese company purchased its partner's equity stake, and thereafter the manufacture of Chrysler vehicles was on a contractual basis. Chrysler sold its equity stake to Mitsubishi in 1993, and Diamond-Star Motors was renamed to Mitsubishi Motors Manufacturing America (MMMA) on July 1, 1995. Despite the departure, the two companies have maintained various co-operative manufacturing agreements since.
      So it might go both ways. Maybe neutral due to joint axis/allies venture.

      Wow what a cool thread idea.



      Saab 900 turbo vert: 0
      Saab 900 SPG: 0
      Saab 9000 Aero: 0 (not counting this as a GM era Saab. Come at me bro)

      Saab 9-3 Viggen: +1
      Pontiac GTO: +1

      Mazda B2200: -1
      BMW M3: -1
      BMW 318i: -1


      Ended up with a -1 which doesn't seem right - with FOUR Swedish cars under my belt I should be counted as Neutral.

      Well, it would be -24 for me, if you count my wife's Saturns. Yes, there are plenty of domestic cars I'd like to have, but my early years were a little, ahem, skewed.

      22 VWs (mostly air-cooled)
      1 BMW 2002
      1 Fit
      1 Accord
      1 Datsun Fairlady Z (yes, a Fairlady RHD 2 liter)
      1 Toyota Sienna
      2 different Saturns

      That's all I can think of right now. I'd bet that there are more that I've forgotten.

      If nobody beats that as a negative, do I win anything?

      Reading fail. I thought it was a "based on cars produced, who wins the war?" kind of thing. Germany, Italy, Japan -- good enough, Axis wins.

      As for actual ownership, I'm Allies +7. I've owned 9 American cars and 2 foreign ones -- a 1983 Corolla SR5 and this-here German one.

      In the "who wins" scenario, I get rolled faster than Polish horse cavalry.
