What is your definition of awesome?

Fast? Sure

High Quality? Not so much

Fast as hell, and for the early 90's the quality was decent.

Debatable. American cars have never been known for their quality.

I do like Ford, though, especially the newer models.

They are decent, and the 90's wasn't really chalked full of super luxurious cars

I especially like the one's with the engines that catch fire and explode

My dad has an '86 and that things breaks all of the damn time. Makes me hate American cars even more, although I would still love to get a newer Challenger.

He takes really good care of it. He bought it new and kept it garaged for most of its life. Only has 60K original miles. Never tracked and only drives it locally. For its age things are breaking and just needs to replace the original parts. I just wish he bought something else that is actually valuable. I don't think many people care about the C4s...

Japanese cars are better than American cars

American trucks are better than Japanese trucks

Find a grad student tutor from Cal, hire them for an hour and have them do the test for you.

No clue, I remember him talking about it, but no final answer.
