Auto or manual?

Manual is nice but the autos today are as fast if not faster than you are. Which way are you folks going?

I heard from Scott Settlemyer at the Frederick,Md. Camaro nationals that the automatic is the way to go.

Being as I want to go fast, and I'm not a pretentious red-neck Joe Dirt type, I gotta go with the auto.

If I was getting a ZL1 I would opt for the auto, but the SS I would opt for a manual because of the engine it comes with.

Manual.

I like driving a manual, it makes me feel I am driving the car, not just steering it. I will take my ZL1 to the track, but I am NOT buying it for that. I know the auto is faster in a straight line (0.1 in a 1/4 from a rolling start according to GM), but it was the manual that turned the head-spinning Nurburgring time.

It is a matter of preference or a matter of speed, and I am glad GM gave us the option. When I ordered my Boxster in 1996 as a concept vehicle I ordered the auto. But then the dealer got a manual to test drive, and I could not imagine getting an automatic sports car, so I went with manual. Same opinion for me still.

I know times change, but on this one I am still old school.
