I've probably owned more American Sports cars than most of you, and I still own one. I sold my '00 SS after driving a friends GTR at Fuji Raceway. I quickly realised how bad the Camaro handled. I could run a lap a quarter minute faster in his car (one I had no experience) than I could in my own. I felt a bit foolish for spending the money I did on my SS, especially when I learned he had paid only 14k for his. I still have my '67 L79...why would I sell it. I don't race it...it's a classic. With the lone exceptions of the Z06 and Viper (which are both quite expensive), American cars just aren't there in terms of handling. They're built for straight line speed..and unfortunately for them, there are imports that are faster in straight lines AND in the corners. The U.S. auto industry would help itself immensely if it used it's revenue on the materials in the car, instead of paying the greedy unions for sittin on their ass in a coffee break.
