The DODGE CHALLENGER IS THE ONLY ONE ON THIS LIST I WOULD WANT !
OTHERWISE THE 2002 BMW Z3 3.0 beats them ALL !!!!!
A STUTZ BEARCAT WOULD ALSO BE A GOOD CHOICE !!!!

Nice to see a couple of "American" cars in the bunch, and a couple "affordable" ones too. Nice to see the Vette is still haning in there!
