Interesting comments that everyone made.  I would highly recommend the 
manual transmission Vette over the automatic one.  My daily driver (95 
miles per day) is a 2001 Camaro SS (Vette engine with 10 less 
horsepower) with the 6 speed manual transmission.  I recently drove a C5 
Convertible with an automatic.  The automatic Vette, despite having less 
weight and more horsepower, had nowhere near the "snap" of my Camaro - 
given a choice of those two cars I would pick the Camaro for more 
driving pleasure.  I also work with a guy that traded in his 3 year old 
automatic equipped C5 convertible for a new 6 speed convertible and he 
could believe the difference (for the better) that the manual 
transmission made.  If they equip the manual transmission Vette with the 
stupid 'skip shift' feature (like on my Camaro) its easy to defeat with 
a $25 plug in part.  Plus with the 6-speed you'll be running 28 mpg on 
the highway.  Anyway that was my two cents - have fun!
