american cars.

i've hated new american cars for while, i thought they are ugly and not much hp for its body...
don't get it wrong, i love muscle cars, not just the cars from 1980-2000.
but i'm starting to liking the 2005 model american cars such as mustang, camaro, and gto, they have body like japanese cars and shit load of hp. and mostly, the interior looks very fency.
what do you think??

I like grand nationals and monte carlos ss(88). i dont like how american car fans diss on imports yet adds for cavaliers (which they no longer will make) say stuff like includes rear spoiler and fog lamps, and cheaper then the civic. lol it cracks me up. i understand thats where the market is, but how can they say imports are trash yet want to be just like them. for newer cars i love the new chrysler cross fire, and the 300 (love the bentley look for hundreds of thousands less) the new mustangs and corvette bodystyles that are coming out look sweet and with the stock vette having over 400 hp how bout the zo6. i have always loved the viper so no change there. how about trucks? i think america owns that market. the new ssr and srt10 kick major ass. and the new hemi's too. ford lighting and 5.9 rt can both smoke the track stock.

I'm never going back - had a Ford Probe before my celi. I'd much rather stick with Toyota - even compared with the new model domestics coming out...

The only american car I'd buy would be a Corvette. I love the old 50's models, and I really like the C5 and new C6. Even if they aren't as reliable as our cars, they would be fun to wrench on.

american cars are pretty impressive now. they look awesome and hopefully they perform well. i mean the 300 chrysler is something awesome for 20-30Gs. i dont like the way bmw is heading now. but im guessing every car company is changing their look alot, so domestics are gonna have more competition they ever thought of. did they think japanese or gonna make their cars look like 70s? whatever happens, domestics are gonna get better at reliability, but imports are even gonna get better.

They are releasing a Camaro for '05? That wasnt' a very long death of the vehicle, lol.

I'm not much of one for American cars, though I kind of like the 60's 'stang and Camaro, the old Shelby Cobras (replicas are cool too,) Stingray Corvette, and the newer Corvettes especially the Z06,and obviously the Vipers and I don't think much else off the top of my head.

For the most part, American engines suck @$$. the only reliable engines are the crate engines. My dad has a small block 350 crate engine in his truck & it already has 150K miles & it's still running strong. sure it's not perfect, but it's not falling apart like the stock engine that the truck came with.

yea they are bringing back a lot of the old power stuff. The hemi's and GTO. Alot of cars have higher HP. They realize that people want power not just a nice seat anymore in their cars.
