..and I previously owned 2 of the 6 on that list (350Z Roadster and Corvette). 370Z is probably decent for comparison sake, but C6 Corvette is an entirelty different animal than Z4. Actually, I owned 4 of the 6, but not sure if the 1976 Mustang (80 something HP) or the 1974 Camaro (v6) would hold up in a comparison test agains a riding lawn mower. I owned both of those back in the early 80's.
"a riding lawn mower"

100 percent in agreement with your comments

Back in the 70's and 80's, such muscle cars were very, very sloppy, with the exception of maybe the '69/'70 Boss 302. The latest Camero isn't much better, but I understand the latest Mustang is making an impression. Still not quite there yet, but not a bad effort for Detroit.
