Think about this

consume what your - our country produces
These cars are meant to be driven so enjoy the hell out of all of it. Not just the look of it when its all cleanCS

A person without a sense of humor is like a wagon without springs.It's jolted by every pebble on the road

True.  Unfortunately, many US made products rely on some foreign part for completion of assembly.

Ironically when the SR-71 Blackbirds were made, the US relied on Russian titanium to build them, unbeknownst to the Russians.  Shell corporations were made overseas to buy the relatively rare metal.  Aluminum and steel skins would not cut it for such a fast plane blasting through the atmosphere.  The heat generated on the fuselage was tremendous.

Small block eight so live she feels
There she's parked beside the curb
Engine revving to disturb
She's the princess from his past
Red paint gold stripes damned she's fast"

I consume Buffalo wings and Bud Light. Neither are imported. Although my weather is often from Canada. Does that count?

That Bud is U.S.brewed U.S. grains with but now owned by InBev of Belgium/Brazil. But, true, it doesn't have to be imported to enjoy.

I guess 1969 Shelby owners will need to take the stock wheels off their cars. They are from Japan.
