My Dad fought in WWII against the Germans. Got really pissed when he saw my BMW motorcycle and my VW beetle.
My Uncle was a B29 crew chief in the Pacific during WWII.
He also got really pissed when he saw my Datsun 280Z (Nisson)....but as a gearhead he did admire German technology.
Told them both, my money, my choice in quality transportation.
