Where I grew up and still to this day, foreign (esp. Japanese) cars were very shunned.
If someone has a non-Luxury car in a driveway, like a Honda, it's assumed that they just moved into town or they are having non-family company over.
Seeing TWO or more Hondas or something in ONE driveway is a very rare sight indeed.
I had an excruciating time deciding to buy my M-B 300E a few years back. NOT because I live there any longer, but because I'd have to visit in that car...
