What is your least favorite Camaro?

Based on styling alone, and not performance/powertrain, what is your least favorite generation of Camaro and why? (Saying you like them all equally is a cop-out and does not answer the question. Still, I know it is going to happen.)

For me it would have to be the 4th Gen. Yeah, they ran well, especially the LS-engined cars, but the styling did/does nothing for me. Even the SS version of those cars is lacking, IMO.



Ooops. Mod's can you add a poll with a option for 1st Gen, 2nd Gen, 3rd Gen, 4th Gen and 5th Gen? I guess I didn't check the right box.

2nd Generation for sure. Butt ugly styling. HORRIBLE. 3rd Gen was ok but 4th Gen was BUTT UGLY as well. 4th Gen looked like a glorified 2 door intrepid.

1st Generation is best and 5th Gen is great to even tho i dont like the "hips"

well if i only include certain years of generations of being what i like then i would say my least favorite is the 4th gens overall....but i really hate the 2nd gens after they went to the plastic bumpers. but i love the early 70's with the rs split bumper and the huuuge open grill!

4th gen 98 to 02. IMO, they really screwed up the nose.

4th gen. I just don't like the way it looks. My sister had one with T-top and I still thought it was ugly.

its not that we are putting down your car, but rather pointing out that the design strayed toooo far away from what a camaro should have been during those years! but everything goes in cycles. one generation is boxy, hard lined and the next is more bubbly and rounded. you can see that in almost every make and model of car!

I agree with this 100%. The plastic front clip on the 2nd gen is . If I had to pick an entire generation that I didn't like, I'd have to say 3rd gen.

I actually would have said 4th gen, before I owned a 5th gen. Dunno why, but lately I've seen alot of 4th gens around, and some really well kept ones! (I wish I had pictures of the IBM one I saw last weekend... beautiful)

So instead I chose 2nd gen, which isn't really fair, because I'd still take one over any car out there... no matter the year!

I honestly can't decide. Some of the mid 70's second gens and the early third gens were horrible. But I love the early and late second gens, and the mid to later 3rd gens. So it's hard to pick an entire generation. I guess I'll go with 3rd gen being my least favorite.
