Question Which is your fav. car from U.S?

U.S has been making awesome looking cars with superb noises. Which would be your favourite and why?
I love the noise and the performance given out by the Shelby GT500....it is a pleasure to listen to hear that engine roar.
It comes into contention with other cars from there also...the Corvettes, Vipers,Cobras all performance cars with a handling so good that it can almost be compared with the European car manufacturers.

I am not big on american cars ..

however .. of all the american cars that i have driven...
i like the '05 Pontiac Grand Prix GT the most...i put a lot of miles on it...completely fell in love with the car ..

it pushes better than the base model mustang ... a straight 0-100k dash is possible in 8 secs (auto) and the traction control works better than that of the mustang .. drawback ? just one Front wheel drive..

anyways ...anyone heard of the Pontiac - Solstice ?
check it out ..http://www.fast-autos.net/pontiac/pontiacsolstice.html

cheers
