Manual is old school. Auto is new...I always lean towards the old school. Auto cars used to be slower but now that's changed so it's just personal preference now.

That might be true, but in the 5th Gen the difference between auto and manual is also the difference between the LS3 and L99.
Pretty good difference between them.

I prefer manual, but we purchased an auto.
Wife's daily driver, although she can drive a manual (she drives my Vette just fine).
For her every day driving, the auto is just easier.

Manual here, had the LS3 been offered with an automatic, I would have gotten that instead.

Wouldn't have it any other way (manual) in a sports car. We have automatics for the DD and kiddie haulers.

What's the difference between the LS3 and the L99 ..... 26HP? No big deal if you ask me. An auto will blow the doors off any manual, any day.

Besides, the auto has remote start, the manual doesn't. And with the "tap-shift" controls, you can drive an auto like a manual. That's what sold me on the auto trans.

No clutch pedal = not even remotely close to driving a manual.
It's an automatic gearbox with a torque converter.

I'm in the sports cars should have a stick club. The only times I wish I had an auto is if I get stuck in traffic and since gm won't sell me the blue tooth module I don't like when I get a phone call and I don't have it already connected to the aux jack.
