I like toys, and because of that I like paddle shifters! My company sells paddle shifters for classic cars, your fingers are MUCH faster than a whole arm movement. Either way you go you're going to get a great car, it just depends on what toys you need. But one thing to keep in mind is resale value. Quick story, I watch true 1967 Camaro RS models go for $55,000+, but base model 67 Camaros for about $25,000, and that was only a few hundred dollar option back in 67. Do you think when you go to sell it, you'll get more out of a fully loaded, or limited option model? That's rhetorical, obviously the fully loaded model. If you're ever planning on selling it, resale value should always be a consideration.
