Cars are material possessions that most of us love and appreciate. I say "most," because not all share the same passion. To some, they prefer motorbikes, trucks or other form of transportations. But to most men who love cars, these babies are not only something for transportation, but a "chick-magnet" as well.
Speaking about cars, did you know that some of the most popular cars in the U.S. are made in Mexico? Well, here is the list of those cars you probably own or would like to have some day:
