Did anyone else noticed that they named the engines wrong? They say the Auto gets the LS3 and the Manual gets the L99. Last I heard, it was the other way around.

Not that it matters too much, but in tests against the GTO (my car) the GT could do 0-60 in 5.1 seconds. That's with the 5-speed manual.

I still think the Camaro would lose.

If that's true, that's a great price. I got quoted over 230 bucks for my GTO at 21. Eventually I got the right insurer and got it down to 150 a month.
