We in the US miss out on a lot of cool stuff (diesel rangers, hot-rod factory Holdens, Aussie Fords, Brazilian 1 ton Rangers, etc.).
For what we pay in the US for fuel per gallon, those in the UK, British Isles, Scotland, Ireland, Bermuda, Azores, Portugal, etc. pay per liter (just about a quart) so if I am paying $3.00 a gallon here in SC some poor bloke in Mildenhall or London is paying 4X that amount ($12.00 or 6 quid/pounds per gallon).
God Bless the USA but marketing to US consumers leaves a lot to be desired. Believe it or not many Asian vehicles here are USA only and Japanese vehicles elsewhere are worldwide or JDM (Japanese domestic market) so I guess our vehicles could be ADM's/USDM's or USADM's!
