I don't think they sell American cars outside of the US.

I have a Porsche that was sold in Kenya in 1983. When I went to get a New York emisions test I foud that the car was manufactured without a catalytic converter and was about 30 times the legal CO2 limit.

Actuallly I have crashed several cars. The crash that "killed" me took place in a Dodge Spirit.

Oh just to clarify, I'm in England.

Yeah, they sell American cars in Europe. To be perfectly honest, I have no idea why. The only people who buy them are super rich jerks. Three reasons why they're jerks:

1. American cars are a lot bigger than European cars. We have loads of roads where two average (european) sized cars can comfortably fit on the road going in opposite directions. Throw a Silverado on that same road and now traffic going the other way is totally blocked. A two way road becomes a one way for the Chevy.

2. A 2.5 litre engine in England is considered a large engine size. The average sized car here runs between a 1.2 - 1.8 litre engine. A Ford Explorer has a whopping 4 litre engine. Consider this, in my area gas costs £1.11 per litre. (There's predictions of us paying £1.50 per litre towards the end of 2008/ first quarter of 2009). Running a 2.5+ litre engine is simply not financially practical. Especially when you consider point no. 1 as well.

3. We have round-abouts! Single, double and even triple sometimes. An average round-about will have two lanes. The inner is used for turning. You change into the outer when you are about to take your exit. I can understand how confusing it must be if you're not used to it. Especially because traffic moves pretty quickly at these sections. They're designed to work perfectly. If your car occupies the inner and half of the outer lane, you obstruct traffic trying to enter and exit the round-about. It's also a lot harder to judge the smaller cars and the smaller roads because:

a) you're a lot higher than everyone else (bear in mind that the roads are smaller and that traffic will be a lot closer to you).

b) you're driving on the left hand side of your car and in England we drive on the left hand side of the road. I don't even want to imagine how awkward that must be.

Yeah, these cars look really cool but it's not practical or considerate to other drivers to have them. Also, not to start a thing but the build quality on most American cars don't stack up against Germany or Japan. There was a Toyota Hilux on Top Gear that was burnt, crashed and even dumped in a lake. After all its abuse, the thing still started up! The average car in England is either from Japan, Germany or France.

Yeah, but at least you guys still have an automotive industry. GMC is huge. I think we have TVR, Lotus and Jag left. My uncle works for Mercedes and was telling me that apparently we won't have Jag for much longer, though. Apparently it takes 1/5 of the work force and 1/8 of the price to make a Jag in China than it does in England. Hence, Jaguar won't be British for much longer. Shame, really.

Properly speaking, I think Ford still has Jag.

Cell phone £20
Internet £16
Food £80
Rent £140
Petrol: £40

My friends all bought really cool new cars like a couple of years ago. If you're young in the UK anybody will give you credit. So my friends all took it and pay their monthlys. I didn't because I really hate having to owe anyone money. So I've been saving all this time and have been driving a Citroen Visa for the past 3 years:



You Better Recognise Bitches!

I've been the joke to my friends with their new cars but whatever, this thing is a badass machine! It reaches speeds of up to 60 mph!! Most people can't even comprehend that kind of speed short of expecting to see a flux capacitor.

Mocking aside, I really like this car. It's like a bad kung-fu movie. You love it because it's so terrible.

edit: Oh, and it cost me £40 at the time. It's value now? I pay the council £120 to take it away. Seriously.
