Once again, I'm seeing the old American myth about our cars not being able to handle. Sounds a bit xenophobic. What do you think American cars do? Fly across the road in a 60 degree turn? There are some excellent handling cars in the U.S. Even the ones that don't handle well, so what? Not all of us get our thrills from being able to change direction really fast, I know I don't.

I drive American cars not for patriotism, but because over all they are my favorite cars on the planet. I like a high powered V8, no refinement, and tough styling. Basically, I like race cars for the street.

As for your line about charisma, what could be more charismatic than a '71 Plymouth Hemi Cuda? A Dodge Viper Venom? A '59 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz? Speed alone does not give a car charisma? Hell, even a Mini Cooper is charismatic by my standards...
