    Hey guys,

    Here is the thread to discuss and post pictures of any kind of American car that doesn't fall into the muscle car or hot rod category. There isn't really a place on GTPlanet to post these types of cars. Trucks, race cars, and modified cars ARE allowed to be posted.

    American badged foreign cars, like an Eagle Talon or Ford Capri, are not allowed to be posted.

    Here are some examples of cars that are allowed to be posted

    Here are some examples of cars that are not allowed to be posted
    (post them in the hot rod/muscle thread)

    We already have enough threads to cover this category. This thread isn't really needed.

    These cars are not allowed to be posted. It specifically says that in the OP. I only put the those pictures as an example.

    It's a shame they discontinued the Avenger R/T.

    Looking at that makes me want to put a supercharger in there and light up the street.

    I really like the new GMC Canyon. Better than the Colorado in my opinion.

    The design is pretty good, but they are a bit overpriced. I would go for a Sierra.

    Trucks have gotten way too big. That truck is bigger than a full size K1500 back in the 90s.

    I wish Ford would bring back the old Rangers. Those were the perfect small trucks. Small 4 cyl turbocharged diesels and gassers.

    I love the old Rangers. It'd be fun to go off roading with one of those.

    I'd love to have one setup for going fast. They look really cool with fat tires poking out and the butt up.

    Gonna have to agree with you on the Eurpean van thing. Ewwww. I'd much rather have a Murican van.



    Off topic but I really need those hubcaps on the Econoline I only have one left and they are hard to find in good shape, they came on dads truck stock

    I guess this one counts as an American car.

    Yeah those are hideous. I'm talking about these:

    Finding ones for 16" wheels with center holes cut for 4WD hubs are ridiculously hard to find in good shape. Hell, even standard ones are tough.

    They might have at some point.

    Edit: another thing you could do is refurbish some.

    Not that I know of. Refurbishing costs a lot of money though.

    Oh that extended cab is gorgeous!!!
