Ouch. Not only do I own a Nissan Cedric, a Nissan Laurel, and a Nissan Galue, but I also own a Toyota Raum. Now granted the Raum may be an unusual looking machine, but it's eminently practical, very well built, and has a massive amount of room for a vehicle 8" shorter than a Corolla. It also has a massive rear hatch that will take 8 wheels and tires, and 2 auto transmissions. I've imported 6, and 5 went like hot cakes, the new owners reporting zero (!) problems. Keeping the last. (Raum in German means Room, or Chamber, hence the name.) How a car may look doesn't bother me, as I also own a 1962 Dodge Dart, and THAT is an acquired taste.
Legendarily, the Mitsubishi Starion (built to compete with the Ford Mustang, and with a horse as it’s mascot), was a misunderstanding by a marketing exec of a Japanese chaps pronunciation of “Stallion”.
