    Today I got behind a car, and I didn't recognize the logo or the car itself. The only badge on it was the logo, which can best be described as resembling the Lexus logo if the bottom part of the L had a curve in it. Or perhaps like the Mazda badge if you rotated it 90 degrees clockwise. It appeared to be pretty new, maybe a year old max. It didn't look luxurious or expensive, it seemed to resemble an Elantra or Corolla or something of that sort. Wasn't a terrible looking car either. Wish I would've taken a picture.

    My first thought is it's one of those Chinese car companies, who are known for ripping off logos and designs, but are those cars actually being sold in the US? And who would actually buy them?

    So help me out, WTF did I just see because I have no idea....

    In Japan a lot of Japanese cards don't have the Honda "H" on them or the "T" Toyota symbol. They they have strange badges (at least to me) on them. Maybe it was just regular Honda or something with a badge from Japan. Should have snapped a pic.

    EDIT: A few Toyota's in Japan.

    Kinda, except it was flipped the other way around.
