I like this car, but not a big fan of red. Personally, I like the 396 better than the 454. I had a 1970 LS6 with an M-22, and bias ply tires that I drove for a year. It was literally a white knuckle experience driving that thing. Almost un-driveable with that combination:https://plus.google.com/photos/116320690035754081108/albums/5794559033013521473
The 396 is more fun on a day in and day out basis to drive. But the LS6 is something every muscle car fan should get a chance to drive at least once.
