Ford MustangYeah, we know. The Mustang.
Just how the most American of American cars ended up on this list should be the subject of a Congressional Hearing, but then – Congress is the institution that enacted the silly American Automobile Labeling Act. According to the Act, cars must be made of 75 percent US parts, and the Mustang registers at a paltry 65 percent, Canada included.
Perhaps we should call it Le Mustang.
At least it’s still assembled in Michigan. Consider, though, that if you want to buy a more American car than the Mustang – the Mustang -- try the Camry, the Accord, the Avalon, the Corolla…
Yikes. When something as iconic as the Mustang is unable to claim All-American status, it’s time to build a bomb shelter in the backyard. Redesigned for the 2005 model year, the Mustang has been a red, white and blue smash for around 40 years. And now, it’s an import. Please – keep it a secret from your Moms and Dads. It’s cruel to make old people cry.
