Back in the eighties, when I was in Denmark a lot, there were a bunch of
South African ex-pats in Copenhagen, all of whom seemed to have US "muscle
cars."  Mustangs, Camaros, even a couple of "Screaming Chicken" Pontiacs.
Given the motoring millieu in Denmark then (high fuel costs, monstrous
luxury tax on cars, etc.), the cars on the road there were modest and small.
Those guys were pretty noticeable.  I expect they were pretty noticeable
back in SA, with those cars, too.
