Aren't those all truck manufacturers? I'm probably wrong, lol, the only one I'm sure I've heard of are Holden....

The Pontiac GTO was cloned from the Holden Monaro. Holden is Australian, Vauxhall is British, and Opel is German. Those cars belong to GM so you will see cars similar to Chevys in Europe and Australia. However, they arenot imported to the US. I guess It would be a good I dea to put those into the import section for the benefit of members outside the US, but then you would have to include others like Rover, Renault, and Citroen.

It would probably be better to just have a few of the most popular makes from a few countries in europe

Something to consider would be to not "Domestic" or "Import", but "American" or "European", so that it keeps things simple no matter what location somebody is in.

And back on topic, I think that those six should definatly be added.
