    Here's a pic of a F50 I saw back in October. I can't figure out why the owner would put a Plymouth badge on their car.

    The owner is probably displaying his humous side. I am sure it was tounge & cheek. I always wanted to see a Chevy Truck sticker on a high-end ski boat.....get it?

    Maybe the wing reminds him of a 70 plymouth superbird.

    License plate looks like it'd fit a US wouldn't it?

    For sure a US car because it has the brake light infront of the Ferrari badge.

    maybe it's to trick guys into racing him. i mean, what can't beat a plymouth? why not put one of those colored acura symbols on there while your at it? it could signify the "kills" he's racked up at the track.

    we kid my father-in law because he is a bit of a poser. He recently had an Infiniti Q45 and then later they came out with the Q45 T. Well, my brother-in-law and I had a good laugh when we saw my father in law's same old Q45 in the garage but somehow it now suspiciously had a "T" next to the Q45 lettering! ROTFLMAO!

    haha, that's very funny. My theory is that they put the 575M designation on the back because owners wanted their newer cars distinguished from 550s.

    I never thought of that - but it makes sense now that you mention it :)

    I dont like it - I dont think Ferrari's need it. If you are into the marque, you cant tell the difference between a 550 and a 575 anyway. If you aren't, you wont even know that there is a 550 and a 575. There are very few of these cars (relatively speaking) and most people dont know what they are.

    Hey, I think the "Plymouth" badge is funny as hell. I've been considering removing the "355 Spider" from the back of my car and putting "Mustang GT" in its place. You have no idea how many girls ask if the car is a Mustang after seeing the horse emblem on the back!

    I think the guy with the F50 has a great sense of humor. It shows he's got a few screws loose, and which one of us doesn't???

    That's too funny... Every other car around here is a "Type R"; Beetles, Passats, Accords, Trans Ams... It's ridiculous... That's pretty damn funny with the Plymouth plaque on the back of an F50... He should really get something that says "Type R"... i would soil myself... LOL...

    LMAO, I have to agree with you. Like you were saying the best is when you see stickers or badges on a car that don't even match the make of the car.
