I wish I could take all of the backwards hat illest VeeDub crowd in America and show them how much actual Europeans like shitty American cars we all take for granted.
Bad press in America couldn't kill it. The fall of the Soviet Union couldn't kill it. The NATO bombing the factory to the ground couldn't kill it. And guess what, the Yugos are still kicking in one Eastern Europe country.
