Pickup: Ford F-250, Dodge Ram 1500.
Minivan: Who here likes minivans? Honda Odyssey I guess.
Sport Coupe: BMW 645Ci, G-35
luxury Sedan: Mercedes Benz E-55, BMW M-5
Convertible: Mercedes CLK-55, BMW-M3 convertible
Compact: 2007 Honda Civic, Volkswagen Golf.
Mid Sized mid priced sedan: Volkswagen Jetta.
Those are some of my favorites what about yours? Im sure there are other categories I could add.

SUV: Tahoe - seats 5 in comfort but GM recognizes with this model that I don't need to transport a kindergarten class on a daily basis. If you ever need to work on it you can practically stand in the engine bay.

Pickup: GM diesel

Minivan: I'd rather stick my dick in an oven.

Sport Coupe: M3 - and if you disagree you're wrong  Smile

luxury Sedan: Old style BMW 7 series (E38 chassis)

Convertible: Mazda Miata - brilliant execution of a concept

Compact: Mazda 3 - actually handles well and doesn't look like a dust buster

Mid Sized mid priced sedan: Camry - I don't like any cars in this class so it might as well be reliable! I guess it depends on what we mean by mid priced though.

My favorites, if I was to walk in with a blank check to a car dealer:

Sports Car: 2005/6 Pontiac GTO
Small Car: Mini Cooper S

The only cars I'd trade my Grand Prix in on...

Now if I had a really big blank check, there were at least a few cars I would have gone after at this year's Barrett-Jackson auto auction in Scottsdale:

1977 Olds 442 (big NASCAR fan, love this car)
1970 Chevy Chevelle Copo
1970 Pontiac GTO Judge Convertible
1964 Pontiac Banshee

Ah, dreams...

my friends dad is a car dealer and imports American cars. He has a Corvette, an Escalade, and also some other cars. They change them frequently, but I got to try the Escalade, and I thought it was awesome. Especially in black with tinted windows, it looks like an FBI car Big grin

That's cool. The Corvette is an awesome sports car. The Escalade is an embarrassment. Shame on General Motors for making such garish trash.
If you want an American mobster, VIP car, go for a black Lincoln Town Car.

That one's nice too if you like that kind of suspension. I have noticed that American cars are generally much softer in the suspension than European cars

 checkmark 

...and that is what one should look for in a practical everyday driver/luxury car. German cars are great if you're driving around cones all day. Daily traffic, potholes, passing people up quick, nothing beats an American V8.

European cars, especially German cars, are designed for European roads. That means either driving on the Autobahn in excess of 120 MPH, or driving at small roads. Therefore suspension is harder.

It really depends on what you want, but if you only drive tons of miles on highways, a softer suspension might make sense, even though I never found the suspension of German cars to be too hard.
