    Is there any way I can add a poll to this thread. I started it trying to figure out if I should buy a camaro or a firebird, and it would help alot if I could start a poll. So let me know, thanks.

    that has to be wrong, how is the trans am top speed 20-25 more mph than a camaro? also how does the quarter mile differ by a half of a second

    I don't think there is a way to add a poll, but if you want to start a new thread with a similar title and put the poll in the new thread, I can then merge the 2 threads for you

    Dont have a poll just get what you think looks better, of course for a firebird your going to be spening alittle bit more. Its up to you, just look at the pictures and not the performace because there the same.. Good luck getting an ls1 ;-).

    I think it matters on what your willing to spend, i mean they both look good but is the firebird worth more because how it looks? you be the judge

    now, now, don't be hatin' jus cause the camaro got the short end of the stick when it came to the looks department.

    GM has a pecking order when it comes to changes in the performance cars. the corvette gets all the neat stuff first. next, the firebird, then the camaro.

    if you don't believe me, here's an example. the TA got lumbar seats. did the Z28?

    the ET will be just about the same. i remember reading in a mag the camaro top speed was 156 and the TA was 163, due to aerodynamics.

    Yes.
    bunch of them

    I haven't read such a ridiculous thread in, oh, well, since the old days of LS1.
    Anyone who thinks either platform is superior form a performance standpoint is too stupid to own one of these cars. That isn't opinion, it's fact. Want documentation? See sig.

    Buy the car you like and enjoy the hell out of it- I do.

    Amen

    This is so stupid that we are all arguing on which one is faster.

    sorry bro but those seats on the t/a's are nasty lookin
    I hate the a had rest and the shape. it looks like it came from sedan. if I were to come across another t/a the first thing I would do is swap some camaro/ vette front seats on it. dont get me wrong I love t/a's but I wouldnt bragg about the stock seats you might have better luck with the hood perhaps i just like the one whole seat look.

    Actully I have heard that the 1st gen camaros were alot faster in a straight line (depending on engine of course) but the 1st gen firebirds handled a little better because the engine was pushed farther back to the center of the car. but no one cared about handling back then. It was all 1/4 mile.

    I also think that the 1st gen camaros looked a lot better than the 1st gen firebirds!

    He wasn't bragging about the seats.
    He was bragging about the lumbar support.

    Neither car has nice seats to me. Not supposed to be that comfy.

    I too also heard the the Birds were more aero/dynamic... if they are then wouldn't you guys reach your top speed faster.?? Or have more top speed than a "MARO".??

    The difference isn't enough to make a noticeable difference.
    When drivers come into play...most of the time any little advantage is taken away.
