nice cars Detroit, but what's up with U.S. cars.  You could find some domestic performance vehicles

which don't cost as much, are cheaper to maintain, and are comparable; if not better in performance

that those chosen in picts.

American car companies know where the profit is ! BIG MONSTER trucks and SUVS that SUKKKK gas !  Guess what, - - -  it's Americans that want them !  A few token sports cars are around as marketing  fluff !  The Vette is a serious sports car but look at the sales, not exactly exciting the last 10 years !

All these high preforamce cars that are being built today are not match for the high preformance and muscle of the 60;s 70's and 80's. These cars that were built are faster and better than the high preformance cars today. Becauxe the in the 60;s 70's and 80's didn't have all the crap that the goernment requires the new cars to have. I will match a 1966 Shelby GT 500 Mustang aganist any of the new Shelby's built today. All the engines in the cars of the 60's 70's and 80's were all stock engines, not like today. I have said this before and I will say it again if the 3 auto makers were to buidt the same orginal cars from the 60's 70's and 80's with all the crap the government requires the 3 auto makers to put in all the cars that are manufactured these cars would sell like "hot cakes" becauxe every baby boomer would by the car they always wanted. The same goes for everyone else.  This is when Detroit was king. The cars of the baby boomer area didn't shatter like the cars built today. Today's cars are know as "Throw away cars".

If these are Sports Cars, I'm the Pope!  A Sports Car is fast, fun, affordable, and, in manhy cases, economical.  These cars all have oversized engines, automatic transmissions, are oversized period, and overpriced!  The Toyobarus bring some hope.; so does the Mini Cooper and even the Fiat 500.  The Mazda Miata represents the only 2-door that Mazda sells.  
So what's this about the automotive industry having sporty fun cars?

Nice of the pathetic American car companies to keep pushing "performance" cars, "gas guzzlers" on us.  We never learn a damn thing, never under estimate the stupidity of the American public.  GM PAY US back the 46 billion you still owe us, and stop lying that you have, you have NOT!!!
