    Pretty much the same car, I have ss camaro now but I also had 2002 Firebird in pewter. I love both cars, I bought a Camaro this time because everyone has a T/A I like being a little different. All up to you and your preferance. I have been primarily a chevy guy all my life and had to go back to my roots!!!

    Formula!

    They're all solid choices actually.

    But to me the Pontiacs have better lines, and I really like the "sleeper" aspect of the Formula. I like the T/A's too, but they're a little flamboyant for me, I think the wing is a bit much. Just my .02 though. They DO have the best seats though.

    You can't go wrong with either though, but generally the Camaro's seem to cost a bit less, if that's a concern.

    Camaro all the way. I like T/As and formulas particularly the hideaway headlights but the rear of the car does nothing for me. Not to mention I'm a Chevy guy so I'm biased but I have owned a trans am before and liked it. You can't go wrong either way.

    it depends 100% on looks.
    which depends 100% on opinion...

    so decide on whichever one looks better to u. if u cant decide (which i couldnt) search for both and juist pick the best deal u find

    My opinion is that if you look back, the camaro has always looked better than the trans am. Always a cleaner car in the long run, a bandit edition trans am just doesn't look cool anymore I think. So going by that, I would say in the future most will like the looks of a camaro much more. I kind of think the trans ams are already starting to look dated. Goodluck with whatever you get.

    From that pic I would take that trans am, dont like red, love the t-tops and love the torque thrust rims hehe

    As for interior they are the same pretty much, but for an auto I rather have the trans am shifter but you can always replace those in the camaro.
