Are you talking about paddle shifters? I don't really like those much. I perfer a 6 speed that has the old four on the floor feel.

yep, alot of the sporty cars have gone with the stupid paddles instead of a real manual(that one on the tv was not auto at all a real std trans), those paddle ones are an auto, still too slow, still have to ask the computer if it wants to let you put it in that gear, its no fun, etc.. all i was saying is chrysler knows how to make and sell an enthusiast type vehicle, if they knew how to make the electrical and other things reliable and cheaper to fix(no dealer) i would be in line to buy one. ive had to work on too many things on my inlaws, and the one at work ended up being sold on earlier than the normal cycle because it was in the shop more than being able to be used.

I like a tiptronic trans over paddle shifters. At least you can select what gear you want. You can also down shift when you want, but it still doesn't beat a manual trans.

I think the Camaro does. Chevy did a very good job at doing a reto design on the new camaro. At least in my opinion.

The charger would be a great reto design if it were a coupe.

Loved the auto show. Went up yesterday with a coworker. Still wish they had a silver Audi R8 that I could have sat in though. They had the R8 that was there roped off :(

Working on my pics now then uploading. Got 332 after sorting through 700+ (took doubles of everything)

I was too concentrated on the cars and my camera to even notice anyone else lol. Just look at my pics when they're uploaded, a few have me in it maybe you'll recognize me (or be in one of them in the background XD)
