Im freaking done with imports! Eye candy enclosed!

Well IVE HAD IT! The Honda Element that my wife drives is getting traded off on Monday! These things are tin cans! They dent WAYYYY to easy and ive replaced 3 windshields in this S.O.B. not too mention the damn steering wheel clicks, the wipers suck, you name it. IM JUST SICK OF IT! Plus 19mpg out of a Honda is not very appetizing either. What did we trade it for??????? A REAL CAR, AN AMERICAN CAR, ANOTHER MUSTANG!!!!!!!! (We traded a stang for the element) We learned our lesson the hard way and i will only be buying FORDS from now on. Here she is, a 2008 Mustang GT Premium, auto, torch red metallic. She should be here by Monday, possibly Saturday (Dealer Trade). Ahhhh so glad to have TWO great Fords in the driveway.

Another example of Mazda taking over the world...

If the Ford Mustang being produced by a Mazda-Ford joint venture doesn't validate Mazda being truly a legitimate part of Ford, I don't know what does.

For those of you who don't know, the current Ford Mustang is produced by AutoAlliance International, not Ford Motor Company...same plant and same alliance that built the Ford Probe/Mazda MX-6

Very pretty lady you go there.

I'm also kind of done with imports. Well yes and no. My last sports car was a 1993 Mazda RX7. I really want a 2006 Pontiac GTO now. Technically speaking it is an import though.

GTOs were made in Australia. They were shipped overseas to the US in ships.
