Yeah, they sold like 14 cars in Japan back in 1995, nobody bought the rest so they sold them to post offices in the US. *Note: I'm not sure how much of that sentence is true. GM did try to sell Saturns in Japan, it didn't go over well.

Japanese market Saturns and I'm pretty sure a few were kept in the states for mail carriers to use.


Exactly. I see more than a few mail carriers driving RHD vehicles, various manufacturers and models. It definitely grabs your attention when you first notice it. One of my mail carriers drives an old RHD Chrysler K-car wagon.

I've seen a few old Subaru wagons, which really makes sense. They're already produced RHD, so there is no extra R&D costs, they already have cars coming over here, so shipping them was no biggie and they have AWD and a ton of room, both really helpful to mail carriers in crappy weather/road areas.
