Re: Best American Car ever made??? The saleen, hands down, is the best american SUPERCAR ever made. The categories range too far for it to be absolute. I doubt very much that the ford gt will beat steve saleen's brainchild. And, since it's a local exotic, it won't be as costly as the million dollar street monsters. As for the other great cars that span over the other categories, pseudo-nostalgia for the classics has clouded my vision. Mr. President, it's nuclear, not nucular.
