My friends and I were having a argument about this. My friend and I are thinking that it is on the decline. Look at all the civics and integras and things of that nature you see all around. IT seems like rice cars are in and american muscle is out. Only think keeping them here is a few v8's. All in all, more 4 cyl cars coming out and 6cyl cars rivaling that of v8 power. What do you think american muscle dead, or not close?
