If that guy parked next to my fox body I'd have a few words with him.

Solution...go out and buy American! A-hole! It will be a long time before Honda's fan boys get a legitimate car show put together for themselves. Especially in Canada.

Well it depends on what you consider "American".

Honda's and Toyotas are assembled in America and even the engines and transmission are built here according to this article:
http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2...-plants-4.html

You can thank Honda and Toyota for forcing the Big 3 to increase the quality of their product.

Add muscle to your muscle car.

I'm hearing that argument more and more about how "American" Honda and Toyota are...

I'm sure you've heard this argument before too. Honda, Toyota, Hyundai, and Kia may be made here now...but the only profits that are staying here from them are the wages they pay to their domestic workers...all the rest of the money goes overseas. It's true...and it's kinda sad that people don't understand that.

So if I bought a Chevrolet Avalanche which is assembled in Mexico would that be OK?

You can't really argue that the earlier Toyotas and Hondas set the quality bar that the Big 3 are just now catching up to.
