    Sorry if I cannot express myself correctly, but I don't know English as good as I want, so my answers will probably be the same in many cases.

    The original Ford GT40 was almost completely American...
    Well, the engine was anyway.

    So that. Probably.

    Good choice.

    I can narrow it down to two...
    - 1969 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham:
    Big (19 ft or 228.5"), comfortable, lots of chrome, roomy interior and trunk (20-cu-ft), strong, powerful and reliable engine, don't see many around so they are definitely a head-turner, 375 hp; 525 ft/lbs torque, leather seats, rear footrests and even a hint of fins.

    - 1969 Dodge Coronet R/T:
    5-6 passenger capacity, good-sized trunk (17-cu-ft), a big, strong (375 hp/480 ft/lbs) dependable 440 engine. Even though it is a high-performance, the tuning is still mild enough for it to last years and years (decades and decades in some cases). Good muscle car looks, its 117" wheelbase and 206.6" keeps it out of the "small compact" class (but I do like the "compact" 340 Dart GTS). I prefer an R/T with the 3.55:1 rear axle ratio- that would put the 3,800-lb car in the high-13s for the 1/4 mile, yet can still be a daily driver and last a long time.
    '76 Cadillac Fleetwood Seventy-Five Limousine, '95 Lincoln Town Car.
