    • Steel, that’s all those American cars were worth talking about.

      I have a ’67 Benz for a daily driver, the last year of a model from the 50’s and that thing is decades ahead of what Americans had. The closest thing Americans had was the Corvette and even a friend who’s looking to spend around 250K on a ’67 Corvette admits there’s not that much to talk about compared to my car.

    • Yes, nothing as stone-age as good ol’ american steel. The corvette Stingray looks good at least but all american cars from all eras have been utterly rubbish. They are still catching up to the rest of the world but will never make a decent car, there is always some major flaw with them, like decades old chassis or terrible rear axle/suspension setups.

  1. Yes, the U.S. made good automobiles, but you should note they were built by unionized workers of the 1950s and 60s. Now, the non-unionized workers are building Japanese and Korean autos and the steel is not from the U.S. And today’s managers are like today’s politicians: ignorant, bloated, and only interested in their own wealth.

  3. What an amazing collection of vehicles
    Sure you might expect a Chevrolet Corvette or two
    Mercedes etc
    Yet a Ford Galaxie ? a 65 or 66 Chevrolet and even a vintage 59 Cadillac with fins
    Interesting – no Japanese models and no trucks which are now the biggest thing in the US

  4. Just a bit curious what will happened if i parked my old Volvo 240 beside that 1800S…

    However, why is the American versions different from the nordic versions (as i know they are made at the same factory)? I hawe not seen the American editions in my contry so far or? Just curious…
