Is it an American car? If you answer yes, then it is a clunker.

Credit where credit is due.. There are certain cars from all countries that are undoubtedly iconic.. The original mustangs, the original corvettes, roadrunners, mopars etc etc.. They definitely have their places in the history books as cars that have molded the way cars were modeled..just the same as there are motorcycles which have changed the face of motoring, and some of these are from Japan..some from America etc etc..to call them clunkers is a bit of a stretch..don't be so narrow minded and vehicularly bigoted Jimmy..)

The 4 door falcon predates the xb coupe that was driven by mad max.. Not sure about the origins of the mullet, first one I saw was by billy Ray Cyrus (definitely NOT Aussie).. And the rear wheel drive gm car was dead until they imported the Aussie commodore for the USA..and the p38 (half the car it was supposed to be) you can have it..and it's. It pop culture...it's iconic..lol..

Americans are good at making pickup trucks and cars that can go fast in a straight line. Other than that they're all junk. British>Swedish>Other European cars>Asian cars>American cars.

I already gave you the Falcon. The Holden crap never stuck, besides they had the Gen 3 engine that came form here. Ill give you one more (Rover Related) The 4.4 from the P76. But then again its just a more highly polished turd of a Rover/Buick V8.

How about you bring a Euro car you own, and I bring an American car I own and we race. Road course, drag strip, your choice.

I appreciate all types (and all makes) of cars, bikes, boats, etc. from my Mustang to my wife's S6.
