I've never been a muscle car guy. Give me a well balanced, nimble, moderate horsepower car anyday. At least they're trying another approach.

For me, American car companies just don't get it. Pontiac tries to sell their "excitement". Hmmm, FWD with no option for a stick, I can hardly contain my excitement. What would you do with the keys to a Pontiac for a week? Park it in the garage!

I take delivery on a new BMW 325i in a couple days. People ask why I don't buy an American car. After having our first child, I never got to drive my Miata. I want a RWD, 4 door sedan with a manual transmission. To my knowledge, there aren't any American made cars that fit this simple criteria. Only a handful of cars fit two of my three criteria.

Again, American car companies just don't get it. They're too busy trying to cram $40k SUV's down our throat in the name of profits to concentrate on a truly fun to drive sedan.
