Who would want to look stately and slick in an old Cadillac anyway?

Chevy pickup trucks are basically the worst investment you can make.

4. European and Japanese cars are clearly the superior option.

This '67 Chevy Camaro is no fun at all.

5. There's just no love between an American car and its owner.

8. Can we talk about how much better pop culture would be without American cars? More like the DeNOrean.

Universal

FilmDistrict

10. That '66 Ford Thunderbird from Thelma and Louise would've looked so much cooler if it were a Nissan.

Pathé Entertainment

11. Steve McQueen should definitely have been driving a Mini-Coop instead of a Mustang in Bullitt.

Warner Bros

12. And Paul Newman should've gone with a Vespa in Hud.

Paramount

13. Have there been any good American car designs in the past 10 years? I mean, honestly.

Why would anyone be excited over the CTS-V? It's not like Car and Driver gave it 5/5 stars or anything.

14. None of the American companies are innovating at all.

15. There are literally zero environmentally-friendly American cars. Zero.

The Chevy Volt probably burns like a million gallons of gas per mile.

21. Honestly, there are no reasons at all to have an American car. They’re ugly and they suck.
