A thing well travelled

I passed by a used car dealer today and saw a Golf for sale. This one.

There’s something odd about it. It has a foreign looking square rear plate.

That would be because it’s from a place unexpected. It’s a Japanese market Golf, made in Germany (or wherever,) sent to Japan ten years ago and then taken half way back across the world to here.


Don’t believe me? Here we go. First sold by VW Fukuoka Airport.

Advanced readers will be able to identify the two identical blue cars in front of it, which despite being JDM have conventional plates because they fit.
