2010 for the daily driver. The 69 would be more of a weekend cruiser car... I mean, there is always something to work on with an old car.

That being said, yes the old school muscle car is going to be the cooler car.

Actually, I too had the choice between and old first gen and the new 2010. After looking at literally dozens of cars, I decided to get the new one. This is because... with the old cars, they are either junk and/or people want way too much for them. On top of that, I have neither the time nor the expertise to work on one to keep it in good condition. And, I feel because of this, I would probably regret getting the old car.

Someday I hope to own a 69.

Are you good at working on cars?
If not, get the 2010.

Well we have a 68' and 2010 and it's awesome having both and the're painting the same. So, it's very cool to cruise them togther. But, I've always loved Camaros.

That's like asking me which one of my kids is my favorite....

I love my 69s and I could never see myself selling my driver RS Z/28 .
I hope one day my son will be talking to kids in his driveway 40 years from now telling them how I bought the 2010 brand new and how we used to take it to Infineon on Wednesday nights to drag race when he was a kid....I hope for those kids 40 years from now the 2010 spawns the desire and demand for a 2050 Camaro just like it the first gen Camaro's created the demand for the 2010 ....

I say why choose.... I think everybody should have both

Impossible question... I voted 2010, merely because my favorite year for the 1st gen is '68

The 69 is definitely the cooler car.

Deciding which one to buy really depends on what you want out of it.
You can probably get into a 69 for less money, but you will probably have to put some work into it. They are much easier to work on but will require more maintenance.

The 2010 will be a brand new car... it will cost more, but it will have a full factory warranty.

If you are looking for a cool car, you can't go wrong with either choice. I chose the 2010 because it was going to be my daily driver. I'd still love to get a 69 sometime down the road.

Both are the coolest but in different categories. Love both.

CA DMV would not approve my first choice for a vanity plate "THINK 69", so now I'm trying "1969N10".

The 2010 will get you a lot of looks, but probably nowhere near as much as the '69. I'm eventually going to rebuild a '69 and paint it ABM to match my 5th Gen.

The 2010 is pretty bad a$$ but really anyone can go get one at a dealer and they will make more. You cant do that with a '69. This is my argument for finishing my '69 and not running to the dealer for a 2010 (as much as I want one...).

I personally would rather own a 2010-- but that is because I am not a gear head, and I think when you buy a classic you need to really know what you are doing.

But I won't deny the 69 is a beauty.

'69 is way cool, but this is going to be a first car for a new driver 2010 will be much safer in every way (handling, braking, and, hopefully not, an accident)and more dependable. When you want to get in and drive it won’t be an issue. I just spent about 5 hours of my weekend working on one of my cars and it is a well maintained ’95. Age is an enemy of cars and a ’69 is 41 years old, I didn’t like how some of the suspension bushings looked on my ’95 while I was under it today. If you buy a ’69 and it wasn’t done right you could end up with BIG problems and out A LOT of cash. There are a lot of people trying to sell crap at a market price. If your pop is well experienced with restorations/builds and this is going to be a joint endeavor then go for it but, if it’s a matter of your parents have decided to help you buy a car with X amount of dollars go with the 2010. I think you will be better off.

both extremely awesome cars, but id say the 69. as much as i love the 5th gens, the 69 is, and always will be, a classic. of course if u go to a school where ppl think its funny to wreck your car (like mine) then id get the 69, and a beater to drive to school. of course, i dont have any money to get a beater, but if ur deciding between new camaro and a 69, then u prolly hav som money lol. well, either one u get u will love, so good luck!!!
