yeah freaking right.
#1 hands down.
i dunno who made that list.
and about the first cars.
my mom did us right! i had a 92 explorer 4.0 and my little brother got an f150 5.4L (and lariat!!!)...
for the most part we always buy american. (yes, i know not all parts are made/assembled in america, but american companies)...
my dad has owned some range rovers, but they are a ford company now. porsche is german. chrysler is sort of american. it's supposed to be, at least. bmw is german. merceds, german. so, i guess my dad isn't really loyal to american only. he's about 50/50 american/european as i can tell. i don't think we've ever owned an asian car. once, i think we had a 626, when i was little. mazda is kinda ford. oh wait. we had an isuzu trooper for a little while. and all of our atv's, for the most part, have been kawasaki's. is polaris american?
but my mom is. she's had, i think, a lincoln, jeep, explorer, oldsmobile. stepdad is. he used to have a jeep, then explorer, then 300.
my grandparents only buy lincoln/cadillac.
i think my first kid(if a boy), will have a good old pickup truck. if i have a daughter, i'll put her in whatever is the safest. something with airbags all over, and not too fast. but you have to put your son in something cool, like an early 90s f150 4x4. maybe an old ranger 4x4. at least, i will. something he can take out with his buddies, drive it where he wants to take it. but he'll be responsible for his screw ups. needs to be responsible, at least...
anyway, enough of my rambling.
