The Vette gets much better gas mileage, if you care about that. Tall 6th gear FTW.

I think you should drive them both, they are radically different cars and your preference will probably make itself clear after you've experienced the differences between them.

As far as price goes, Z06 is the winner hands down. You can get an 08 for around $59k with the base options. Loaded out closer to $70k.
I do not mind shifting at all. Rough roads are common in Texas in most every area I have traveled so ride quality is an issue. I already have a car that beats me up.
