Default Muscle cars in Europe

I found this video on YouTube and I'm assuming it's in Europe somewhere (Netherlands?). I can't help but notice the number of American muscle cars, are they really that common over there?

Lol nah, american muscle cars aren't very common here in Europe. It's probably because it's some sort of enthusiast club or something. You do occasionally see the odd one here and there though and it's great when you do because they're beautiful.

Germans, Swedes and Norwegians absolutely love classic American cars. Cadillacs are very popular collectibles in Germany.

Gas prices are so high in Europe so most people that do have one dont drive it as much as they would like.

Here's another one of his videos, I do see an old Caddy in it, and notice the Chevy Conversion van.

I've heard of some American muscle in Europe, but quite frankly I always figured they turned their noses up at us/hating American iron.

If I did see an American musclecar in Europe, my first thought would be it belonged to someone who was formerly from the United States.
