On the auto vs manual tranny subject....An auto allows anyone to drive the same car with the essentially the same performance numbers, however a manual car will produce differing performance numbers according to the driver....So.....To me the only thing an auto accomplishes is taking the driver out of the equation. Personally, I like being in the equation.

That is why I would get the manual Z28, not because it is faster, since it won't be compared to auto, but because it would be more fun to drive. I have an Auto SS, and no one gives me crap about is being Auto. I drove a manual a few times years ago, so would have to teach myself, no biggie.

This is my opinion only. Just saying most performance cars come in manual and yes they are much more enjoyable to drive. Yes you all are right automatics are quick cars. I did not mean to bash on people with auto's
