Fast and Furious 1, 2 and 3 and American Musclecars... (spoilers?)

It's just a movie, so no reason to be too serious, but I have to wonder.. why is it that these movies have to pull out an american muscle car for the final battle, to win the day. (Usually a .. uh.. Mustang?) Is it that these cars really are _that_ good and unbeatable.. which would imply we've had no innovation, and advancement in the car industry for the last.. what? 35 years? Since they were made.
Or is it simply that it is an American made movie, and appealing to the biggest market, they use the american pride to their economical benefit? (and hence, the driver is _that good_ that he can beat the bad guy with this car)
There is a lot of personal opinion here, so there might not be an answer. It just seemed odd that a pretty ugly (sorry, but it is '70 design!) 2 tonne car, always beats anything made in the following 35 years... even if they were in my favourite shows as a child.
