    Americans vs. Imports ...Why there are such? My guess because of where they're made.

    How can we help? Need a map?

    You don't want any stickers do ya?
    It all has to do with some American thinking it's okay to buy Japanese cars because the Japanese hire a few Americans to assemble them. What they don't mention is how American people throw their own people under the bus when they buy these cars. Without getting too political, I'll just say drive through Detroit and see how some of them feel about imports.
     
  8. Big Blocks !!
    There's no replacement for cubic displacement!
    There is no feeling that compares to floating down the highway in a big 50's or 60's car, or frying the tires for two blocks in a TRUE hotrod.
    I have owned turbo fed imports, and they are fun to beat on, but the lack style, they lack character, they lack soul.
    Jump into an old piece of american steel and you will know what I mean.
    Oh, and what fordrat31 said.

    I'll just recommend that you go back to your 11th grade class (English/Composition I presume) and learn something about punctuation, spelling and capitalization.

    Then, rephrase the question so that it's in complete, coherent, intelligible sentences. Also, note that americans vs. imports is a great big, wide open subject. It could be cars and it could be tools. For that matter, it could be just about any finished goods or something like steel or even as basic as raw materials.

    :)

    Imports are only good for the gas mileage .

    There is NO replacement for the brute force and the torque from the Detroit Muscle ! Unless you have ever driven or owned a big block car pulling 425hp from the factory you will never understand what I am talking about . There is nothing better than slamming a 4 speed , smoking the tires and having your back jambed to the back of the seat ! If you do get the change , do it and you will never ask that question again ! There is no other way of putting it .
    You will never get that from any import , NEVER ! Plus we all knew what our cars looked like in a parking lot , unlike the import cookie cutter cars that are sold today !
    You just had to be there !

  14. Be sure to add some photos of what has become of Detroit. Or the mill towns in the South East. Talk about the economic impact of Walmart's almost total imported inventory. Ask why this is.

    But, if you don't work on your spelling and punctuation it will detract from what you want to say. Writing is a tool. The HAMB usually sees the proper use of tools as important.

    All of these left their mark on American Racing/ Customising/ Hot Rodding.

    And they are all partly or completely Imported Cars.

    Based upon your question, or lack of one, I'd be really interested if you would take the time to post a copy of your paper on this thread.

    I would like to see how one of todays 11th graders view domestic/import cars in whatever form of comparison you are going to use.

    Personally, I don't care about the correctness of language, in fact in english there are really no rules or laws, just a few guidelines that most people follow when writing. The guidelines tend to help communicate ideas, and so long as the meaning is conveyed, I don't see a reason to nit pick about any rules that may or may not have been broken.

    Skilled writers might tend to dispense with certain rules in order to better convey the meaning in their writing. They take this license and we, as readers, allow it because we assume they have done so for good reason.

    Unskilled writers oughta to stick to the rules, with things like spelling, grammar, punctuation, sentence structure, noun verb interaction and the like. Try this: 1.Think of a coherent thought. 2. Form letters into words and words into sentences and then type them into the box on the screen of your interweb machine. <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>

    I for one would never consider buying/purchasing/being in a foreign car. For every American auto worker there are 7 unauto related jobs created.

    Yes the foreign people seen this and there are now many foreign manufacture car plants here on our soil. What the public doesn't understand is that the $$$$$$ being made from cars isn't staying here. Keep building those foreign cars so "other" people will soon have control over our economy. Unfortunately too many of us don't want to be bothered by the "big picture" also if it's not happening in my back yard then it isn't a problem. F'n wake the F up society!

    That's my take on foreign cars......

    WE didn't mind the european imports. But we did mind the asian imports. maybe because of ww2. the japs were lying sacks of shit. So we didn't need thar rice burning shit boxes on our land. I think you should remind everyone that ww2 had a lot to do with our dislike for asian import. Many of our fathers were killed by the japs. So how can we accept there cars. Google burl harbor and see what I mean. and the Bertan death march. Study ww2
