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.

The "catfish" front end is the worst.

3rd Gen is the worst generation IMO. The only ones I'd consider is a '91 or '92 Z28 (350 TPI). The early 4th Gens ('93-'97) would be my next least favorite. Aside from the 5th Gen's, Camaros best years were from '67-'73, no question.

I personally hate the look of the third gens, but if someone plunges the cash into making it into a real show car stopper, then they can look real nice

It's the 4th gens for me. I know they ran good with the ls motors ,but the trans am's in those years where way cooler looking. GM really missed the boat with the gen 4 camaro in my opinion.

3rd gen is the worst. I can't believe 4th gen is getting the most votes!! Doesn't anyone remember what a HUGE deal that LT1 '93 Z28 was? There was nothing for anywhere close to the money that could touch it in performance. It was a bigger performance breakthrough in '93 than the 5th gen is in '10. All the magazines loved it,the brochure for the '94 included 2 pages devoted just to quotes from magazines and newspapers about how great it was. It had goofy things wrong with here and there,i owned a '95,but overall that was like somebody dropped a A-bomb on the pony car world. I am living in the Twilight Zone if that's considered the worst Camaro.

2nd gen is my least favorite, but only after 1973. I had a 73 and a 77, but the last few years of the 2nd gen (78-81) were hideous with those bulky front and rear fascia's.

The LS1 cars were absolutely amazing pony cars. The only thing GM did wrong with them was to put that weak ass 10 bolt rear-end in the cars.

Not being, 'aware' of the earlier Camaros, I googled images to help me,
I now know what each Gen looks like, and I still can't vote....................

2nd 3rd and 4th are absolutely disgraceful IMO, and I really cannot decide which I would have crushed first!!

Love the 1st gen though







No offence to any 2,3 4 gen owners-just not my cup of tea!!

I voted 2nd generation. I hate those headlights. They remind me of the headlights on my sister's old Vega.
