What is the silliest / dumbest thing you have heard regarding cars and JNCs where somebody is just wrong.
I was looking up cars and my brother walked in. He said "Are you looking for a car?". I said yes and he suggested a hilux and wondered why i was looking at a Datsun 720. I showed him the 720 and he said "that looks like a Rodeo [Holden rodeo/Isuzu Faster]" I said he was wrong and showwed him a pic of a rodeo. He refused to listen to reason and stated that "nissan is the same as holden". We argued and eventually he said to look at other cars of the time [mid 80's]. He proceded to say that all of these [mazda b series and toyota hilux] were the same as the 720 and rodeo. Later there was the "they all come from the same factory" retort and "they would change the front end, they just rebadged them".
Hes done similar for quite a few Jap cars after he found out about badge engineering. Even when no similarities are present.
