    They make some the of sexiest cars I've ever seen. I would buy almost any car they offered if it was available in the US. I like the GTO kind of, but the pontiac styling turns me off alot. lots of powerful V8 cars in austrailia :hs:
    this concept is fucking sweet, 4 door muscle cars win:

    Gas Prices + Anything with a V8 = No Holden in the U.S.

    All the manufacturers HATE the US. We may be "the most important market" but they screw us on cars.

    I'd love to see the El Camino/Ranchero come back, especially if it ment they were rebadged Aussie UTE's.

    Locally SUV's with the biggest v8's still seem to be selling quite nicely.

    I dont think they delibrately screw them, I just think they try and give the US market what they think they want. Apparently yank's like big heavy and sloppy cars, or so a lot of manufacturers think so. Just look at the evolution from the 240z.

    I wouldn't have a clue.

    Especially the FPVs.. FPV > *

    The only Fords the US gets are built and designed in the US, except for the Focus, which if I'm not mistaken is a Ford of England car, and some badge-engineered mazda's.
