I didn't. Mainly because I stashed my second key someplace in the house and it promptly fell into whatever black hole that orphaned socks and good batteries go.

Then may I offer you the Aston Martin V8 Vantage? Same engine, yet it comes with the stick!

(I got to try the Aston once myself with the autobox. It was a lot of fun, but I hardly ever think back on it.)

I drove the old version and was actually looking for a used manual 4.7 coupe before I picked up the 1LE. The new one is nice but the headlights look strange in my opinion.

Maybe they hold onto the 2nd key until the financing is done? Seems like a tactic that the "Tote-A-Note" places would do, or a engine control that disables the vehicle if a payment is late. I guess anything to make sure that the borrower is paying.

But I brought my own financing!

I had a 2016 Amg Gt s for almost two years and replaced it in june with a 2020 Zl1 which i sold for a profit due to crazy used car prices. I now have a 2022 Zl1 10 speed auto. How do you even compare a Camaro ss to an Amg Gts .Seriously? The Amg is on a whole other level. Not the same price point either. The Gt s definitely has a special feel to it . Driver /car connection that very few cars can provide. Not knocking the Camaro but it is not in the same league. Zl1 is a big step up but still.

I guess the simple answer is you ignore the prices and evaluate how the cars make you feel! It's not fair, but it's fun!

Update: Ah, I think misunderstood. You mean the experience is of the AMG is on a whole other level, not just the price. I agree with you that the sense of driver connection to the car is amazing in the AMG. I'll add that some of my best drives of my life have been in the Camaro SS. So, although some of the connection/feedback is missing in the Camaro, the excitement is still 100% there.
