For me the 1967 is the best then the 1993 and finally the 5th generation.

i didnt realize there was a ZL1 way back in 69. wow. its amazing that now the v6 stock camaro engine puts out what the early 396 engines did, and even the 350 engines of the 2002 SS camaro. great article though.

The one I liked was the Pontiac firebird first generation convertible. I tried to convince my Dad to help me buy one as a kid. Bright red with a 454 in it.

He wisely said no. I got a '90 Pontiac sunbird instead. Too bad Pontiac is nothing but a memory now :(

There were a lot of cool Camaros over its history. For a while there, I was really interested in picking up a late 2ndgen.

Dump all the Camaros from 1974-2002. Poor performance, styling, and build quality.

Our Stock 2000 Camaro SS 6 speed manual runs 13.1 & our Stock 2002 Trans Am auto runs 13.2. With a full tank of gas the 2000 Camaro SS only weighs 3400lbs. That's what the current Camaros should weigh.

The build quality of the 67-73 wasn't any better.

Yeah back then the ZL-1 was the COPO Camaro. They made two '69 ZL-1 Corvettes too.

My x-bro-in-law had TWO early (I want to say '69, maybe?) Firebird convertibles. One had a 350 and the other a 400. Beautiful cars.

I knew a guy that worked at the plant where copo camaros were built in 69
He said they were all alum blocks and entire car was hand built. I have no reason not to believe it because they were very rare then too
