3rd gen is the worst. I can't believe 4th gen is getting the most votes!! Doesn't anyone remember what a HUGE deal that LT1 '93 Z28 was? There was nothing for anywhere close to the money that could touch it in performance. It was a bigger performance breakthrough in '93 than the 5th gen is in '10. All the magazines loved it,the brochure for the '94 included 2 pages devoted just to quotes from magazines and newspapers about how great it was. It had goofy things wrong with here and there,i owned a '95,but overall that was like somebody dropped a A-bomb on the pony car world. I am living in the Twilight Zone if that's considered the worst Camaro.

2nd gen is my least favorite, but only after 1973. I had a 73 and a 77, but the last few years of the 2nd gen (78-81) were hideous with those bulky front and rear fascia's.

The LS1 cars were absolutely amazing pony cars. The only thing GM did wrong with them was to put that weak ass 10 bolt rear-end in the cars.

Not being, 'aware' of the earlier Camaros, I googled images to help me,
I now know what each Gen looks like, and I still can't vote....................

2nd 3rd and 4th are absolutely disgraceful IMO, and I really cannot decide which I would have crushed first!!

Love the 1st gen though







No offence to any 2,3 4 gen owners-just not my cup of tea!!

I voted 2nd generation. I hate those headlights. They remind me of the headlights on my sister's old Vega.

For the longest time I hated the 4th gens... I thought they looked like oversized Geo Storms. They've finally started to grow on me now, but they still get my vote.

In order of favorite to least.

1969-2002 Trans Am/Foamy
1st gens (for if anything, the 1969 Z28/RS option)
Late 2nd gens (Pops owned one, got me into GM muscle.)
3rd gens. (I-Ron Dook..)
early 2nd gens. (Just never liked that styling as much as the 78-81s; 74-77 was a travesty)
5th gens.

Why 5th gen as my least favorite? IMO a sheer disconnect from the road thanks to NHTSA requirements for over 9000 airbags. Having driven a 4th and 5th gen back to back, I can say that same feeling of a rattle trap 4th gen.. a rusted out 3rd gen.. a 2nd gen on it's 15th crate motor or even that half past dead 1968 is just GONE.

It's just too nice to be a Camaro..

Is that even possible?
