Picture of my mates 1986 Honda City Convertible outside his home in Soest, Germany.
It has Russian plates from Sachalin, the islands north of Japan. It is there where the Honda was bought and brought from. Via the Trans Siberian Railway from Vladivostok and it's own wheels from Moscow:
It is ultra rare with it's factory-fitted air-conditioning (even one of the compartments in the dash-board is cooled via air-con), the centre console out of the City Turbo "Bulldog", the Nardi steering wheel and the scarce alloy wheels from a Mitsuoka of all cars (look smart on the City I think)
Distance from Jushno-Sachalinsk to Soest: 11,536 kms
I bet this car could be one of the Top 20 vehicles in Europe with the most distant license plate. I sometimes see cars from Russia usually with the 77 (Moscow) or 78 (St. Petersburg) i have NEVER seen cars from Russia that far east.
It's funny that in Russia's far east, 90% of the vehicles are right hand drive when in Russia, you drive on the right and the steering wheel is on the left. I bet is cheaper to import Japanese cars than bringing Lada cars from Samara. If Russia was in the EU, all Japanese cars that are NOT brought yo Europe, could be imported to Russia and then transported to Germany and from there, they could be sold unofficially to many European countries. Since this is not possible, Anybody in Spain that wants to buy a Skyline, Supra, Special edition of the EVO or Imprezza, goes to the UK and tries to find one.
Saw a Toyota Hillux the other day with Equatorial Guinea license plate. The car had been modified to off road in harsh terrains. Sadly though, i was driving and Couldn't take a picture, but the car was like this:
and the license plate was this one:
