American cars have always had crap handling characteristics, a Morris Minor would never have done that, mainly on account that it wouldn't reach half the required speed...

"American cars have always had crap handling characteristics". I just assumed that they pretended that they handled badly for the benefit of the US film/TV industry; clearly, I was wrong.

and not one of them has had "crap handling characteristics", in fact they've all been a pleasure to drive.

well when they are twenty feet up in the air though.

In a straight line perhaps (unless they've changed significantly in the last 30 yrs!).

Thirty years is a long time. The cars I've driven have been good - both on the straight and on twisting roads through the mountains.

The real problem is all those piles of boxes that get in the way of American cars when they want to go somewhere in a hurry...

The bridge that got in the way of that American car when it wanted to go somewhere in a hurry...nearly took the driver to the Pearly Gates. He would have rammed them as well the way he was going.
