The second gen was beautiful, and agressive.

I always like the "3nd" personally. :-P.

I just like the cleaner, more simplistic styling of it. The 2nd gen was a bit too busy for my taste, but still beautiful. Hell, EVERY generation of the Camaro has been beautiful and tasteful, and the fifth gen really kicks it up a notch.

I liked the 2nd as well but I'm bias because I had to sit in the back of my friends back in the day once to many times.

Like them all, have them all but I like them for different reasons. I could stare at my '69 Camaros all day but I could drive my 4th gens all day. Each generation has it's individual character.

I would actually go in order but I would leave the 4th out.

4th gen just looked like it wanted to be a Corvette so bad but couldn't. I didn't like it at all. Zero homage to it's heritage.

Haha! You should drive one and then drive a Vette. The 4th gens are "the next level down" as they should be compared to driving a Vette.

I agree. As it should be. I was mainly talking about looks though. And again, as it should be.

But to me it just seemed the 4th gens style was terrible.

1st gen is the best, but the 2cd gen is a strong second IMO.

And you know what? You are definitely not alone. FBodfather and I have had many looooooooooooong emails back and forth over the years discussing the good and bad regarding the 4th gens.

Looks was what I had heard about most from Camaro enthusiasts when it came to complaining about the 4th gens. I love the curves on them though. Some day I hope I can show you how the 4th gen Camaros curves are more than meets the eye at quick glance. Performance, reliability and comfort however, they are very hard to beat!

early 4th gens kinda paid homage to 3rd gen styling. But I agree, late 4th gens look like no other camaro, they look more like a Chrysler Concorde. Pontiac had the better styling from 98-02 IMVHO.

I was always a kid into cars at a very young age. When I was 8 yrs old my dads friend got a brand new Z28 and I fell in love at that point on. When I was 18 I bought a used Z28. Then life happened etc etc, Sold the car and then had vettes and other gens since then but my heart was always with the 1st gen. Now in my mid-life crissis it's TIME for another 1st gen REBORN....

I can't speak to performance as i've never driven one. I drove a v6 Firebird but that's it.

I have to disagree with you about the 4th gens not looking like any other models. It actually paid tribute to the 1st gens with it's coke bottle side profiles. The SS hoods had an air intake styling that was similar to the 1979 Z/28 and the tail lights did have some similarities to the late 2nd gen and all the 3rd gens.

Nothing meaner looking than a black 98-02 WS6 Trans-Am!
