i would say 1969 is cooler, but they are very nice cars that i wouldn't trust with other new drivers at my school, my own opinion

As much as I love my new Camaro, and I do believe that right now it is cooler, it will be somewhat lost in a sea of Gen 5s in the next few years where the 69 will always be a classic. So my answer is 2010 for another year then it's back to the 69.

1969 or 2010?

This Spring, I was attempting to put my 1969 Indy Pace Car back together for the Summer and was pretty frustrated. At the time, I had decided I would rather own the 2010. After having completed the Pace Car and had the opportunity to take it out to local cruise nights, I'm glad I stuck with it and kept the '69. That said, I'd still love to add a 2010 stablemate. If only I had any money left... Maybe by the time the convertible comes out.

I chose the 2010. Since I am not a huge fan of the 69. Well, only because I prefer the / MY 67 Camaro.

But that is a tough choice.

Have to say '69. I've always loved them. It's what first got me interested in the '10. My son asked me a similar question after I caught the Gen5 bug. "What would you rather have?" he asked. I thought it was an easy question at first when I answered '69. After thinking about it for a short time, I had to change my answer. '69s are cooler, but I wouldn't get to drive it every day for 60 miles like I plan to drive my Gen5. A '69 won't give me silly power while still getting 27MPG on my daily commute. A '69 would smell like a '69. It would handle like a '69. It would be built with '69 technology. It would be cooler, but alas, I'm not so cool. I'd rather have a 2010. Just a few weeks to go...

Cheers!

I have both in the garage. The 69 will always be the most popular Camaro ever. Every gearhead, no matter which brand they worship, will still appreciate the 69.

We have to go with the '69 otherwise there would not be a 2010 that looks so awesome. I remember driving my husband" 69 and sitting at a stop light. The car had so much power that it didn't want to sit. Love that car!! Too bad its in a thousand pieces.

Got to admit, the 69 was the first car I bought in HS way back in '73, so, it's got my vote too as much as I love my 2010!

There is no comparison. The new car rides great and I have driven several. They lack character and are bloated in comparison. Here is a pic of mine and a yellow one that my friend has.

I am a big fan of camaro's and have had several. My vote would have to go to the 2010. I know that the 69 is the most popular for the muscle area but I am not a big fan of that model.

I still think the 67 is the best. It is what started it all. And the rear quarters of the 2010 are more like the 67/68 with the slight roll.

True, if it was not for the 69, the 2010 would not look so good.

If it was not for the 67, there would be no 69.

I'll take a 1969 RS/SS with an LS7 and a 6spd trans.


Actually there is a '69 convertible in my area with an LS1 in it, it's pretty freakin' sweet.

I am not going to live in the past. The 69 was (is) way cool, but this is 2009 and the 2010 is the worlds first perfect car. I voted for the 2010!
