I agree. It's just a matter of preference (and affordability. I wish I had a Viper, but can only afford a Camaro for now )

My first car was a (beater) 1971 Chevelle, then I owned a 1975 Camaro. I was in college when I owned those, there were 30 years old when I got them (I was born in the 80's).

I now own a 2016 Camaro RS

My dream car is a 1979 Trans Am/Firebird, but I love most American sports cars. I grew up with a Dodge Viper GTS poster on my wall and hundreds of Hot Wheels everywhere.
I had a 1970 Chevelle SS ragtop. Candy apple red, white stripes n top. Totally awesome dream car! And let’s just say it wasn't thirty years old when I got it! Lol.

I love cars from the fifties and sixties. Some from the seventies. Other than the Chevelle my thing was hatchbacks. Had the Pinto (cute), Hornet (more power) and a Vega (totally cool body). And doing upholstery I got to play with a LOT of fifty six n seven chevys. Rebuilt a thirty two sport coupe and even made a trundle seat for it. Ahhh, those were the days. Oh! Can’t forget hubby’s El Camino SS. That car could fly!

I have a white and black 51' chevy 3100 that I've been restoring for the last year.
Once my dad and I finish the bed it'll be ready.

Not really a car guy, but I do want to say this: Luxury > Muscle.

My F150 is the first American vehicle I've ever bought. I've looked before but they all seemed to have fisher price controls and plastic everywhere (mostly not well fitted). I got the FX4 over the Lariat because it was mostly to haul bikes, either in the bed or with a trailer, and needed off road ability more than luxury. I got it pretty much loaded and it's the most luxurious vehicle I've ever owned too. Better than my M3 in features and that was loaded too. I had a 4runner that I used to haul bikes but it was a pain to pull out my trailer to haul 1 or 2 dirt bikes so that was the main reason to get a pickup.

We have a mustang from the the 1967 , yeah I hate it that when we drive it , everyone around the sidewalks and everywhere all stare over at the car and I don't like to much attention!
That's like marrying a supermodel and complaining about her being oogled.

It's in the shop getting the engine tuned right now. If my dad got it today while I was at school I'll upload some pics.

I’ve had my share of American cars 72 chevelle with a 396, 67 Mustang and a 66 cutlass as classics. All great cars but they couldn’t turn. 74 Camaro that allways needed work a 2001 Monte Carlo ss that drove like a champ . That car did everything right just a well made car I took care of. Went to trade it in and the dealer offered me 2k more for my son 99 Camry. Go figure?? I went foreign after that. New toy

Love my Camaros and the 2014+ corvettes. Don’t have a specific year in mind, I like a couple of the various years. The new ‘vettes I drool over and it’s pretty obvious. Never owed a “fancy” car but my current love interest is my behemoth 1979 Lincoln Continental Towncar. Your fancy ones may out run it but mine would win in a fight. that thing is a pig. I love that car to death. It’s a work in progress and unfortunately I know almost nothing about cars that I would be able to do any of the work myself. Ugh. My current every day car is a Chevy cruise (standard) but I’m waiting to pay it off cause I’m DYING to get my hands on a pick up truck again.

If I had my Pinto I’d play chicken with your Lincoln! Lol
We had a Lincoln rag top with suicide doors. Just didn’t have enough money to restore it. And today, my idea of a fancy luxury car is called my king size bed.

I can’t see it but I remember this car! Is it the green and black or yellow and black. I’m hoping the yellow. I love that car! Pretty.

It's yellow and black.
I don't understand why you can't see it.

This is my '03 Mustang 2+2 Commemorative

Cool!
I had a Saturn Sky too, but it was base, not Redline. Loved it a lot though. Fun car. It was grey, I made a custom stripe and it had 20" rims.
