    What car has the proportionately longer hood?

    Proportional to its length of course.

    Jaguar E type? Chevrolet Cheetah?
    Of course I mean roadcars. Otherwise a Top Fuel dragster nose would win.

    Everyone who has watched Knight & Day knows that the car with the longest bonnet is the Model G Pontiac Grand Prix.

    Which is not what you are asking.

    Any of the Bugatti Type 41 Royale variants.
    I'm dropping out to create a company that starts with motorcycles, then cars, and forty years later signs a legendary Brazilian driver who has a public and expensive feud with his French teammate.

    It was on the telly and I had nothing better to do.

    It has one very annoying feature, confusing Spanish traditions (San Fermines in Sevilla, WTF?) which is also present in other Cruise films...

    I didn't think you cared about Spain.

    I also kinda find it a piss off all of you continentals speak write/speak English Britishly. Telly? Come on! I suppose you don't want to sound American and are taught British English, but it'd be best if Canadian English was taught internationally. We are known for being friendly and peaceful. Then you could say something like: Let's head down to the soccer stadium to see what that's all aboot, eh?

    Much better than: "I say sir, t'would be capital if we were to head to the local football stadium and perchance catch a match, no?"

    I ask the UCP international community: are Canadians the most liked people?

    Well I think that's TG's fault.

    And I do care about Spain (and its culture), just wish they would stop interfering with our (political/economical) decisions and developments.

    I propose Mongolains to be the most liked people. You can't hate on a modern Mongol.

    It's true, everyone loves an Aussie. Apparently it's the accent, at least in some parts.

    Though yes, as usual, the bogans ruin it for the rest of us.

    Proportionally longer, at least that's what they loudly and obnoxiously claim.
