Too bad the Trans Am is gone...

I have a reason for asking, but not because of possibly purchasing either of them.

Depends on the skill of the drivers. Without a long straight the Camaro wouldn't be able to take advantage of the power difference and won't be able to pull away from the Jag without getting aggressive in the turns. That's a lot of power for an average driver to handle and it's more than likely he won't be able to keep it between the curbs. That said, the Jag has a reputation for overheating and might not be able to stand up to the rigors of a spirited chase.
You win the "best answering the actual question asked" award. Thank you.

What about the aforementioned guidettes?

Indeed. If a man can pull off the skinny jean look, a snazzy car is uneccesary for snatching the aforementioned lady folk.
