  1. Initially that’s what I considered it to be but the vast majority of plates are black and not numbered and the cars that bear those are made in different plants. I did wonder if maybe they were cars who assembly was done outside of Nissan plants? I read somewhere that other manufacturers (I think Daihatsu may have been one) assembled some Nissans at some point as they had spare capacity.

  2. just a guess, but perhaps the different colors designate different factories?

    datsun or nissan? that’s one of the three great mysteries along with 2) how prince survived as an autonomous entity up until the ghosn era and 3) bizarre domestic dealership structure
