The Perfect Car, Made in America

28 Aug


I know that by “perfect American car,” Garance Franke-Ruta meant one that was designed and manufactured by GM, Ford, or Chrysler, but really, how can you beat being one of Car and Driver‘s 10 Best for more than a decade? Not only is the Honda Accord really made in America, but with 244 horsepower and i-VTEC (and some of the best handling in the industry) you can hose kids in the standard Mustang while toting a gaggle of toddlers in the back seat. It’s not all about burning people off the line; anyone can be a hero in the straightaway. I love globalization.
