Well, I got dragged into the Clickbait Matrix the other day, and ended up at 30 Greatest American Sports Cars. I know a great deal about sports cars — especially those of yesteryear, and as I’ve written before, I love them.
But honestly, I know close to diddly about American sports cars. I mean, sure, there’s the ’67 Ford Mustang, the various Thunderbirds and Corvettes and so on, but to be frank, on the above list (and to nobody’s surprise, probably), the only two models I would consider owning would be the Duesenberg and the Stutz Bearcat — and of the two, I’d only consider the Bearcat as a true sports car (the Doozy’s a touring car, and if I were to dump the Doozy as a non-sports car, I’d go with the AC Cobra, reluctantly). And among the others, they’re akin to muscle cars* or even supercars (e.g. the Vector).
So, O My Readers: enlighten me about this so-called “Top 30” list. Is it a valid one, or just a load of crap? Are there other “real” American sports cars which have been missed? The floor (via Comments) is yours.
