Have you ever owned a Japan car? I had a few, and after seeing at those pictures I wonder if my car also looked like this when it was travelling across the ocean to the dealer.
These are actual photos of Japan cars arriving from their travel from Japan to a port of delievery.
The reason is that winters in Japan is that when a ship leaves a port in Japan in winter the temperatures are pretty low, and together with the wind and plenty of waves, especially during storms, cars that are on the upper decks of the ships carrying them are being turned in something like this.
Probably if customers knew about such a condition of their cars while on their way to a dealer they might refuse on buying such a car, after all nobody wants to buy a car after a flood for example.
They look amazing on photo, and the most how do they manage to take all this ice without damaging the paint? They probably use the warm water, but I am not sure is it really safe for the paint. I’ve heard that people in Russia complain for the quality of paint on some new Japan cars, probably these are the cars that were transported during the winter and looked like those above.
