We;ve been holding organized drifting events in Hawaii since 2001. So far, we only have two people who drift domestics, and they both happen to be 3rd generation Chevy Camaro's. Here are some pics of Domestic Drifting action from Hawaii:

Thats cool that there are domestics drifting. It makes some amount of sense, cheap cars, cheap parts, and easy to get big horsepower. I was drifting a crown vic at the drivers search, and it got pretty good responses. I think for the sport to thrive in the states we need to get the american muscle heads into the mix. I know this will upset some of the drift community, but you need the domestics. If the domestics get invovled there will be alot more events and it will become a huge sport. Although I will be drifting a 350Z at hyperfest I think all makes and cars desreve to drift, euro, domestic, and JDM. It will make the sport that mauch more interesting...

Cool you see it that way! The only thing about domestics is they are heavy, so to build a good domestic drift car you really need to concentrate on weight reduction (just like how the guys in the D1 with heavy cars concentrate on weight reduction). The initial reactions of people when we go drifting is always interesting. I dont think we've met anyone yet that got upset, usually the reactions are either 'WOW!!! THAT WAS CRAZY!!' or *Scratch head* LOL. In fact, when the Signal team came down last year they thought it was really cool we had 2 domestics out there drifting. In Japan the domestics here are imports and very rare (like how Japan only cars are rare here). They liked it!!
