Hm, I might as well do a less of a "dream garage" listing with more easily attainable cars, but still not in beater condition: these would all be in very decent shape from the rarer condition percentage from all the available examples, but not too perfect/low-mileage to be used. Couple new cars in there too.

France: Talbot Tagora (silver, probably 2.2-liter petrol)
Germany: Porsche 986 Boxster (silver)
Italy: Fiat Panda 1000 i.e. (basically like mine, but in nicer shape, could have the canvas roof)
Japan: new Suzuki Jimny (army green, delivery miles)
UK: Jaguar X300 (carry-over from the earlier list, they are not very expensive)
USA: Chrysler Neon 2.0 LX 5-spd (Strawberry red, unpainted bumpers, two-tone hubcaps with dark centers)

South Korea: Hyundai i30 N (underwear blue, delivery miles)
Soviet Union/Russia: Lada 2104 wagon, 1.7-liter engine
Sweden: Volvo 480ES 2.0

Japan: uhh... hard pass
UK: same
USA: FUCKING SAME
Skyline? Supra? NSX? RX7? Miata? Hachiroku? Silvia? S2000? Beat? AZ1?

Elise/Exige? Evora? Esprit? Caterham? Atom? Any Aston? Bentley? Rolls Royce? Range Rover? Defender? Morgan?

Viper? Shelby Cobra? Corvette? Classic Mustang/Camaro/Charger/Challenger/etc? Saleen S7?

How can anyone who is even remotely interested in cars not be able to pick a single car from those countries? Mind. Blown.

Interesting choice....I approve!
Going solely off ease of access in the US. There was an HSV Maloo around here a while ago, but I think that probably started life as a totaled Chevy SS, which while also Australian, I am not counting for the purposes of this exercise. I have seen a few other imported utes on Craigslist, but none as cool as this particular Falcon.
