    My favorite year is 1979, despite all the emissions on it, I love this Camaro the most. Not only because he (Barry) is my first cars, but because they are very sleek and stylish, and they are pretty aerodynamic for a muscle car.

    How about your favorite year and why?

    I like the 70-73 Camaro's best but if I had to choose a year it would probably be 70. I liked the low back seats, chrome header panel emblem, and gun target reverse lights.

    I thought I wanted a 1st gen, but after trying to find a decent one in our budget range, forget it! We looked at a lot of the 79-80's but just felt it wasn't the 'right one" for us. Finally we found our 70! Have to say my favorites are the 70-73s. Now of course my favorite is 70!

    Yo! Guess I prefer old school 'cause 1968 is probably my favorite year for ALL muscle, followed closely by 1969. By about 1972 most everything had been castrated. But I like alot more than that, especially if I can do what I've done to my '76,...but that's not legal! Sure could get alot better power to weight ratios easier from those light, older chassis'!

    Just talking second generations here, I like the 70-73 because they look more like a classic muscle car. But the 80-81's are a close second. I would take a 77-78 Trans Am Bandit over any of them but they are out of my price range.

    When I was 10yrs old I saw a 70-73 Camaro go by and I was like what kind of car was that!? After that day its always been my favorite car. I've owned two 73's one 80 z28 one 85 z28 and a 87 IROC Z. I am now restoring a 70 RS, it will be the last Camaro I will ever own. (should be like new when I get done with it)

    I like the 74-77's the best, as those are the ones I grew up with. Never cared for the rubber bumper cars that much. They were also the models I had the least problems with out of all the 67-80 Camaros I owned.
