Good point, but only SOME of our cars sucked, many didn't.

yeah but tell that to the public who bought the foriegn cars. By the time we got out of the 80's and early 90's people did'nt care if domestics were getting better they were already swayed by the crappy cars they drove.

There's a good reason there's so many of them. Consistent quality/reliability and good marketing. Not to say our cars are a total pile, but the japanese market has had a better track record. I'd take a late 70's - early 90's japanese import over a domestic of similar time frame for reliability any day. The domestic market has done a decent job of catching up in the last 10 years or so, but I still think a majority of japanese imports have better style and package deals than most of the domestic companies.
