    chevy luv - isuzu p'up
    Chevy Metro - Suzuki Swift

    chevy tracker - suzuki vitara?
    dodge colt - mitsubishi mirage
    dodge colt - mitsubishi colt
    dodge colt - mitsubishi expo
    dodge colt (70's) - Isuzu something
    Dodge Sapporo/Challenger - Mitsubishi Galant Lambda coupe
    dodge stealth - mitsubishi 3000
    eagle talon/plymouth laser - mistubishi eclipse
    ford courier - mazda b series truck
    ford aspire - mazda 121
    geo metro - suzuki swift
    geo storm - isuzu impulse
    geo prizm - toyota corrolla
    geo tracker - suzuki sidekick
    Honda Passport - Isuzu Rodeo

    this doesnt count all of the american cars with japanese engines like omnis, caravans, escorts?, etc etc

    I also read in a car mag several years ago that the chevy cavalier was sold in Japan badged as a toyota!!!!!

    The first car is what it's sold as the second is the car it actually is.

    updates anyone??

      Good job, I updated. I think we'll just do the one brand badged as another theme since the other would be an endless list!

                  Dodge Omni 4 door hatch = VW Rabbit
                  Nash Metropolitan = Austin Metropolitan (but I think it was a Nash design)

                  You thinking of something else?


                  And FWIW, the Chevy LUV never was a Datsun. A lot of people think that, but it's not true. It was always an Isuzu.

                    I did a little searching and while some omnis had vw engines and trans they were still dodge cars. I also researched the luv and you are right the luv was always an isuzu and never a datsun. good job! Interesting to find out this stuff. That's why I started this post.

                          my favorite is the Cadillac Cimaron. It was just a crappy cavalier with some fake wood trim. Cadillac price and cavalier quality.

                            that thing is hilarious. I have an aunt that drove all kinds of caddys from the 60's-90's and man I got a kick out of pointing out the cimarron to her. She didn't like it one bit!
