i like the 93-97 camaros better than the 98-02 camaros.
But i like the 98-02 Firebird front ends better than the 93-97
The problem with the 93-97 firebirds is the front fascia retains its color whereas the body's pain sunfades, leaving it looking like to differant colors.

look there, the colors dont match well

I totally agree there, although I've warmed up to the 98-02 front end a bit, still like the 93-97's. I like the 97-02 back end (well, taillights better). I've seen a few 93-96 running around with the later taillights, makes a huge difference and a cleaner look IMO. The LS1 is nice, but I actually like the LT1's better, I think they sound better and they have more low end torque according to my butt-o-meter.

I have to respectfully disagree on the butt-dyno (then again, our LS1 has some mods, so maybe as a general rule the LT1 rules the cheeks) but just jumping from my LT1 into my LS1- the power difference is easily noticeable

However the LT1 is a true 350, and sounds like sex on wheels with the right setup! Had a CLEAN 96/97 SS drive by us a couple nights back and give us the pipes while we were standing outside of Fat Jack's, and I swear to you I almost got a chubby!

well, the only LT1 I drove was a stroked 383 with headers, intake, flowmaster, no cats.... and every other mod in the book..... I revved it up a bit at a traffic light to about 1800 and it laid rubber.... totally shocked me (and the salesman riding with me) whoops
