Lets take a look at the list:

Corvette Most American's can't afford the base model, but it has been an American icon since it's inception, I'll give them this one.

Mustang Again, an American icon, but there were a lot of MYs that the Mustang was just a badge of a crappy car. But if Chevy can have the 'Vette, I'll give Ford the Mustang.

300 It's an OK car, but I don't see people offing themselves if Chrysler stopped making them. I don't think most people would even notice it.

F-150 America needs it's trucks, so, I'll give them this one.

Ram America needs it's trucks, so, I'll give them this one.

Challenger Wait, up until last year, when was the last time Dodge put out the Challenger? We lived without it all of that time, why wouldn't we be able to live without it now?

Camaro I didn't see people offing themselves when Chevy discontinued it so I think we've already proven that America can live without it.

Sky Seriously, how often do you have to tell people what you drive? I meet people all of the time that say they've never even seen the car before. Apparently a good part of the American population doesn't even know they are living with it to begin with. But it's nice to see it mentioned anyway.

CTS I don't know anyone who lives with this car, so I think everyone would be OK living without it.

Hummer Yeah, GM had a hard time finding anyone to buy the company because no one is buying Hummers anymore. Besides, there are many male enhancement products out there they cost way less than a Hummer. Indispensable to the military, but as a passenger car I think we've already decided to live without them. I wouldn't be surprised it Sichuan Tengzhong just targets it toward the military and maybe commercial buyers.



Now, I'm not one to buy an SUV, but does anyone find it odd that there is not one SUV on this list? American's are known throughout the world for driving SUVs. Where are the Trailblazers and Grand Cherokees on this list? Is the author even American? Has he ever been to America? Is he even old enough to have a drivers license?

I don't own one , but I think the Jeep Wrangler should replace the Hummer on the list. Not really sure about the Chrysler 300 being on the list of cars we can't live without.

I think that list is pretty dead on, especially since I own 2 out of ten.
