At local cars & coffee this weekend. Guy wearing vet hat and pins asks who owns this Porsche? Starts asking all kinds of engine build technical questions. Then says he has a real love hate feeling about these cars. Asks me if I know why? Then gets weird/angry and says the guy who designed it was hitlers boy. He designed the tiger tank and a GREAT BUG. Then walks off mumbling some bs. This ever happen to any of you? Then he gets in his vintage Datsun Z and drives off. Btw anyone see the hypocrisy? Lol

Did the guy look like this person?...

This thread got me thinking about the origin of all of the cars I have ever owned over the past 45 years.

In order;
Ford Capri II (Germany)
VW Rabbit GTI (Germany)
Porsche 911SC (Germany - still owned)
Jeep GC (US - my station car)
Audi A4 (Germany)
Audi A6 (Germany)
Audi A6 (Germany)
Audi RS6 (Germany)
MB GL550 (Germany)

I think I sense a theme there ....

Wow - that guy would DESPISE me!

I've owned 45+ cars in my life, very few of them American.

95% German and Japanese.

America won WWII, go figure.
