Unfortunately, I can't argue with any of this, except for the food. You guys only know of our fast food and most health concious Americans don't touch that stuff. What is good?
Texas or Tennessee Bar-b-que, Pacific nowthwest salmon and other seafood, Kansas City Steak (nothing like growth hormones to make a juicy steak), Creole/cajun cooking from New Orleans, Chicago style pizza, soul food from the deep south, Tex-Mex and/or indian/mex from the southern border states, Maine lobster.......I could do this all day. Just know that some of us are well traveled, and understand/respect how the rest of the world thinks of the USA.
Now I know that nobody needs 350ci under the (bonnet), hood, whatever, to get from point a to point b. However some of these lumps are producing 1 hp/cubic inch, with the capability of doing up to 1.5 hp/ci and more. Super chargers and hemi heads available from the factory. You can't tell me that doesn't get your pecker hard having access to over 500 hp in a 2 ton vehicle.
