    besides that so many domestic companies are making import-esque cars now to bank off the tf&tf craze.
    i mean christ, next year you can buy a cavalier with stock turbo. srt4 anyone? the gto is being made just to compete (more like own) the current sport compact scene. there is no distinction between import and domestic anymore.
    all that argument ever was to me was a 4cyl vs v8 argument. kids in there hondas and old guys with mullets in there hotrods.

    A domestic honda isn't blessed by a monk as it comes off the assembly line in NC like the ones in Japan are... :p

    So was mine.

    How about defining "import" and "domestic" as just the origin of the parent company? That's about all it really means these days, if you're going to break it down to parts content and assembly location. Hell, the Accord that we know now is only available to the States. The Accord everywhere else in the world is what we know as the TSX.
