There is another theory... nothing happened.
You can track statistics of almost anything in the world and there is usually a fluctuation above or below a median (I think that’s the right term).
Some people get too hung up on it, especially if it involves money.
You can then often spend too much effort trying to apply a reason to something when it may not even be linked to it.

Not saying that is the case here, but it could just be a natural lull in car registrations.

Clearly the only logical explanation is the Soviet Union collapsed ending the Cold war, as a result people didn't feel the need to support capitalism anymore.

Bare statistics are often misleading. Did you know that over 99% of people have more than the average number of legs.
