i was taking one of my friends out and i was driving them home. i was in from of those cadillac escalade look-a-likes so it had bad handling (typical for american cars). anyhoo i tryed to powerslide round the corner and i hit a street vendor; causing the stand to explode, killing me and the passanger. this has happened to me a few times. WTF is going on.

has this happened to anyone. if so, do u know what is causing this to happen? or do they spontaniously combust on impact

Probably due to the gas bottle located under the cart, how else do you think they cook their food? Take a look and you'll notice the bottle, just don't stand too close when you shoot it.

This happened to me too. and BTW not all American cars handle bad. The Toyota Prius isn't exactly the best handling car in the world.

Toyota is an american car now... believe it or not.. it is. I really dont want them to be but they couldnt be in nascar if they weren't an american vehicle.

most american cars handle badly but they make up for it in acceleration and style. except from cadillac and lincoln they are just awful cars only pimps and david beckham drive them. i like mustangs new and old (mostly old), pontiacs and dodge viper/old charger are cool. ford GT handles well even Jeremy clarkson(watch this vid to see how much he hates america and its cars) loves the ford gt. the vid is a lol aswell.

Jeremy Clarkson loved the Ford GT until it broke down constantly and he sold it.

Thats right, prove him wrong by giving an example of a bad car thats not made in the US. Way to go.


Overall, theres only been about 10% of US cars in the past 10 years that have been any good. I think its down to the fact the US car market is completely different from the rest of the world so they single themselves out to much and make cars that will only do well in the US.

Toyota are more American than any Dodge or Ford. Just because Toyota is Japanese based doesnt make their cars Japanese. Toyotas are made with a MUCH higer % of North American content than the other "American" car companies.
