As a "enthusiast"
(you use that term loosely) you are not looking at the big picture of your life and retirement. That additional 16k difference from a Chevrolet in a 401 will make you several thousands by the time you retire in 20 years. With no SS waiting for you the prudent person would buy the Chevy.
BTW: look at my garage about choice of wheels. Also there is a 57 Bel Air and a 47 Chevy Sport Master Coupe in that same garage.
