They’re Loud and Proud
When a car designed and made in the US is on the road, you know it. From the silhouette to the sound of it roaring past, they are very loud and proud about it. Mustangs, Corvettes and even Dodge Rams, you know they’re there. Fortunately, these aren’t restricted to the US anymore, either. There are plenty of Ford F150s, Chevy Silverados and Dodge Rams for sale across the UK and Europe. All you need is a reputable dealer or even an importer to get you going.
The Lower Entry Price
Although they are very well made and built to last, American vehicles are also cheaper than their European counterparts. There are many reasons for this, and some include economics, the fact that they are made within the US and foregoing luxury for practicality and what the consumer wants. And if you take a car like a Mustang, with all its features and power, and compare it to an equivalent BMW or Audi, there is a substantial price difference well into the thousands.
American Cars and Restoration
It might be something of a cliché. But cars from the US are great for restoration. We’ve all seen the movies where father and son work for years on restoring a classic muscle car from the glory days of US car manufacture. Modern SUVs are great. But even today, American vehicle restoration is a big hobby and big business. Although you really need to know what you are doing. The time alone requires thousands of hours, including looking for the rare parts needed.
Max Comfort and Space
If there’s one thing US vehicles do well, it’s space. They’re huge compared to European cars, and you know you are in one when you are. Even the small, family cars are built with space and comfort in mind. And many of the features you pay extra for in Europe, such as drink holders, come as standard in US cars. They simply wouldn’t have it any other way. An American vehicle embodies the freedoms and spirit of the country. With an open road ahead, anything is possible.
Muscle Cars are Just Cool
American imports or sales you can find vary wildly, just like any other country. You have sleek sports cars, family vehicles and pickups. But then there are the muscle cars. American muscle cars are in a class of their own, and nothing, absolutely nothing, compares to the looks, the sounds and the feel. From the classic Oldsmobile Rocket 88 to the new Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, the passionate manufacture of these cars has never waned over the years.
You know a loud and proud American car when you see one, from muscle cars to pickups. They’re also in a class of their own for restoration projects, and muscle cars, well, forget about it.
