I don't think they understand what an "American Car" is.

I scrolled through the page a bit...looks like a page for millennials, by millennials (present company excluded). I feel dumber now.
You can do better, Jake.

Perhaps it should be titled '20 American Cars No Man Should Let their Parents Buy For Them"

That is right, men should never own them!
Only exception: Real men!
Reminds me of the sticker I saw on an old Volvo driving in front of me, saying:
"No airbags, we die like real men!"

Never cared about stigmas, I always declared what is cool

Absolutely clickbait. I wonder what country they are in? Ford Ka? Not American and never available in America. In fact, I don't think any of them were designed in America eiher.

Ford Ka is a european ford, and i agree no one should own one of those they look dangerous, very cheap entry level transport. Different co worker has one of those too, barely rates transportation rating.

Do they actually get paid to produce this bull ****************? Sad! They seem to hate anything that's under about $30k, except for the Boxster, which they hate just because.


BTW, I own a car that they could add to the list. It's an 02 Prius. About as user friendly as a car can be. It's my daily driver.

In their “20 Things About the Back to the Future DeLorean” article they mistakenly use a picture of a Bricklin instead of a DeLorean about halfway through the article

Flat 6 Boxsters are girly, but the 4-banger Subaru 718 is manly? Riiiiight...
