It looks like a Renault R-8, but that's French.

dude that is the new Ford F-150 isn't it sweet
I think it's a pinto.
PS: For the morons that can't detect sarcasm, I used it in this reply.
I'd guess it was a modded Trabant
Pretty much like Win98 is modded DOS

Yup...Salem got it right....it is a Trabant. A pretty popular car from the late 60's to the late 80's in East Germany and Eastern Europe.
Yes, that's a Trabant P601, also called a Trabbi.
601 was the type number, but quickly became a joke about communist economy... 600 people waiting, one car available. When you ordered one, it could take up to ten ( 10! ) years to actually get it. And it was not like there where any alternatives.
It's indeed a "verrücktes kundenspezifisches Auto" ( weird customized car ). Many versions were built, you can have a look here (google).
Trabbants were also called "Rennpappe" which means "racing cardboard" because Trabbis were made of some type of plastic, with very little metal involved.
After the reunion, a classmate bought one for 30$. Nowadays they are more costly as none have been produced in the last 15 years plus they probably are a tax nightmare because they don't fit into any still existing pollution category.
Here's my first car, although I had the saloon version. This is the only picture I could find anywhere on the web! Can you identify it?
It leaked like a canoe. I was forever putting bathroom sealent around the front windscreen to stop the rain pouring in.
Nope. Not Japanese I'm afraid.
