This friend of mine asked if it was my camaro that was outside today, thinking i was going to get a compliment i said yes why do you ask. He starts rambling on saying that he thinks it's the ugliest of all the camaro's and that he likes the third gens the best. I mean dont get me wrong i love all the other generation camaros but i am heated about this! Has anyone else had this happen to you?

    It's all personal preference. I'm sure some people out there hate 4th gens, some hate 3rd gens, 2nd... etc. I wouldn't put too much effort into the argument basket because you can't convince someone how they feel.

    I'm not a fan of the grill, maybe your friend feels the same way. While I do prefer the Firebird over the Camaro, the Camaro is certainly not 'ugly'...

    Just accept that your friend is dumb.

    Never got that one bfore. i would be upset but just laugh at them and ignore. one day my dad got our 69 camaro out and it certaintly isnt ugly. blue with white stripes has a small dent on front end and this guy told him that 69 was the ugliest of all camaros. You just have to ignore stupidity

    occasionally i hear things like this about the 4th gen bird, sayin how its too bubbly and the curves are too obnoxious.....other times i hear "wow when did you get a vette?" or "those cars are so bad ass!" its not just the camaro occasionally gets hassled...

    I don't have a camaro but people who say stuff like that are jealous. When I had a 85 Corvette a Guy I know was bashing it and saying the gold color was ugly and the 85s had the weakest engine and stuff like that. I would just laugh it off.

    It actually took me a while to warm up to the 4th gens. I was more impressed with the LS1 over all. But, it's grown on me and I can now appreciate them as a whole.

    I still don't care for the 3rd gens though and will always prefer 1st gens. Even 2nd.

    Yep heard this many times myself..

    Also the LT1/LS1 looks never really caught on.. It has been attributed to the waining F-body sales in the 4th gens..

    3rd gens are meaner looking imho.. Also dare I say better handling as well..

    But I liked my 95 and my current 01 just fine too...
