This is directed toward Ford, GM and Dodge fans. Please take the time to read this, even though it's long... American performance cars have a long and proud history. While you're all trashing each other, jap-import fans are trash talking ALL OF US. You seldom see Nissan fans bashing Hondas or Toyotas, and visa versa. They don't know the joy of a pavement shredding V8 that roars like a beast from hell. They don't know the proud history we have created long ago. Mopar Hemi, Shelby Cobra, Yenko Camaro, GT40, the JUDGE, Corvette L88! Countless cars like these make me proud to be American. I don't mind so much if people LIVING in other countries don't appreciate our cars. What I have a BIG problem with is American kids being brainwashed into disliking American cars. Two nights ago some kid asked me about my beater car (a Mitsubishi Lancer OZ). He was actually impressed and asked me about performance mods! I ended up in a conversation with him about japanese cars (for race) vs American cars. He asked me what I suggested, and I gave him some (domestic) ideas in his price range. In the end he admited that domestics aren't "cool" with his friends, and he'll probably buy a Civic and modify it. He didn't say anything bad about Mustangs or Camaros. I even suggested the SVT Focus (since FWD I4 compacts seemed to be his style). Still, no can do. It had to be Japanese to be COOL. Nevermind the fact that not ONE single Honda can beat the SVT Focus without paying a lot more. The jap-import craze is without logic. It's all about being IN with the import crew. Now here's the point to my story (finally). Any reasonable person can see there are strong points to all of the American (big three) car makers. Stop bashing each other and helping the r1ce burners. This only diminishes our proud history, and it diminishes our present/future accomplishments. If you're a Chevy fan and some sushi burner trash talks the Mustang, put him in his place. If you're a Ford fan and someone bashes the Viper... well, you get the idea.
