I actually would have said 4th gen, before I owned a 5th gen. Dunno why, but lately I've seen alot of 4th gens around, and some really well kept ones! (I wish I had pictures of the IBM one I saw last weekend... beautiful)

So instead I chose 2nd gen, which isn't really fair, because I'd still take one over any car out there... no matter the year!

I honestly can't decide. Some of the mid 70's second gens and the early third gens were horrible. But I love the early and late second gens, and the mid to later 3rd gens. So it's hard to pick an entire generation. I guess I'll go with 3rd gen being my least favorite.

3rd gen. The 2nd gen with split bumpers are my favorite, and it's toss up between the 3rd and 4th for worst. I give the nod to the 3rd gens due to the Berlinetta, lol.

When I reflect on the 1984 Camaro Berlinetta 3rd Gen I owned "Welcome aboard Starship Camaro" (the ad really said that) with all those buttons and 150hp engine I'm really happy with my 5th gen..

3rd, gen. They changed the body style, and I could not get into it. I thought they just looked bad.

I agree with you on this. The first couple of years of gen 2 with the very small corner bumpers were very cool.

to tell you the truth, i used to hate how the third gen looked. but now i like it. i like the look of all the camaros because they are all unique to me. the only thing i dont like about any camaro is gm putting a 4 banger in it one time and making the v8's really slow during that period. oooo, now i remember which car i hated the most in looks. i really dont like how the front looks on the camaro berlinetta

I don't like the 3rd and 4th gens equally. This is based on only styling of course. Both models however, dress up REALLY nice and can be made to look good. I've seen models from each I love, but its not as consistent as the other generations. I can't think of one single 1st gen I've seen that I don't like.
