Mr. Siler just dropped a load of seeming anti-American sentiment in the midst of our week-long Amerigasm, commenting on the lack of desire to buy American cars. Though the piece was reasoned, it's time for those of us who believe the U.S. of A. is the greatest and the best to explain why we're going to overcome this short-term market correction. Remember the 2009 Corvette ZR1? Remember the Ford F-350? Remember the 2009 Cadillac CTS-V? America makes some extreme, and extremely awesome, vehicles. Are there any cars Toyota makes right now that you slow down to look at as they drive by? We didn't think so.
Not to mention, American cars are unpretentious, affordable and come with at least 15,000 cupholders per car. You can live in an American car. And not to get all jingoistic, but American cars are also American. Who else can say that? The big three aren't always the brightest three, but there's no substitute for American ingenuity. What makes you proud to buy American cars, assuming that you are proud? And if you're not proud, we guess you can go play soccer and drink tea with milk in it or some crap.
