Better in what way? Fuel economy? Handling? Reliability? Better to modify for racing? If that, what kind of racing? Better looking? There are SOOOO many things that could constitute better. Specifics help.

This is really hard to answer. I can't even give you a good idea of what is an import and a domestic anymore.

Kind of a dead issue in 2003. My civic and my celica were both made in the US by the way. And saying that it's still an import is like saying the Americans who built it didn't matter, and I feel the people who built it played an important part in it's quality.

Umm -- they aren't. Don't be a stupid ricer.
true, they arent necessarily better..more hp/litre but they also have displacement and torque...its a toss up, what ever floats your boat man.
pick a topic about imports to shed some light on the muscle car guys...explain vtec, turbo v. supercharging, boxer v. interferance v. rotary(wankle), the big developments made between the early imports brought over and the ones now, explain JDM...talk about stuff that most people here dont know about...i can thin kof tons of ****

Okay I'm game.

-It's alot easier to get layed if your car starts with: BMW, Ferrari, Mercedes, Lamborghini, Lotus, Porshe...
-German engineering is among the best and most luxurious
-If you don't care to be fast, instead be fuel efficient, japanese imports rule
-A Chevy 350 has too much power
-No one cares to have car that runs 13's stock
-You can't put giant spoilers on American cars
-Domestics depreciate quicker
-Imports are great, thats why they're stolen more
-Smoke comes from the front instead of the back
-Its easier to replace front ends instead of just buying a 12" rear
-Domestics don't have JDM counterparts which make them cool
-Asian girls don't like domestics
-Domestics don't have Hot Import Nights
-Integra's are WWaaaayyy Cooler then Corvettes, I mean, Vettes are so big which makes them slow right?

Persuasive speeches are rather easy to write. I always enjoyed them because you can take any side and still write a persuasive speech. All you need are 3 points where one thing is better than the other and argue/support those.

I think the easiest 3 points would be...

1. Fuel economy

2. Weight

3. Price

That would be the easiest way to go but I think it would make for a boring speech. When I was 15 I argued that loud car stereo systems should be legal. It was a rather retarded speech but I got an A just because I used the correct format and had support. Now I laugh when I see guys rolling down the street with their stereos blaring.

those are honestly the worst reasons i've ever heard. i'd like to help you out, but i dont think imports are better than domestics. sure, in some cases, but you can't just make general statements like that.

one word..Porche ...of course the USA has its Vipers, Vette s and the infamous SRT..throw in a few mustang s and concept cars spooling out 500+ hp and uve got a real war out there

think reliablity comes in there somewhere along with aftermarket support

never once think that Imports have better reliability over domestics after modifacations.

This is a lame HS subject.

I would go with the fast and the furious instead.
