I've been wrenching since the mid 80's and unless you're working on a car made prior to then, you're not really going to find any SAE bolts on them. Most everythings been metric for years.
I recently relegated all of my SAE tools to a small seperate box from my rollaway because I hardly use them anymore. Not ready to get rid of them because occasionally there is some random furniture or wood structure bolt that needs to be tightened, but even most of those are metric nowadays.

Not every nut is attached to a car, modern or otherwise.
