What'* wrong with the GTO being an automatic? With a converter, TM dialed down, and higher shift points, that silly automatic will run consistent high 12'* all day.

This from a 6 speed guy. I don't understand the negative commentary because it'* solely an auto!

Didn't mean for it to sound that negative.... If i had a 6.0L GTO i just think it would be more fun to have a manual transmission. (I realize the automatic 6.0 would still run circles around me all day BTW )

True, very true. Which is why I have an M6.

But some of the quickest ET GTO'* out there are A4'*.
