    Worst year for Camaro?

    I saw a 1975 Camaro the other day & couldn't get over how ugly it was, those front bumpers were soooo bad. On top of that, I also know they had like 130hp V8's. So, what year (other than the dark years of 03-09) do you think were the worst for Camaros? As previously stated, mine is 1975. Ugly, huge front bumper, looked like a bigger Vega, & waaaaaay underpowered.

    To each their own. I'm sure there are plenty of people out there who love 75 Fbodies. Personally, I like 3rd gens the least. Mostly because a majority of the ones you see are rusted out piles.

    I vote late second and early third generation. Some of those later model third generation Z28's and IROC's are pretty nice and even today, I've seen some that are still in very good condition.

    Agreed!
    If it wasn't for a movie it would have been a hard sell!

    That wasn't my intention, btw.

    I actually like the 3rd gen, but they are usually mulleted up pretty bad around here. In nice condition, though, they are pretty sharp. Then again, there were the 90hp 4 cylinders of the early 80's that kinda ruin the reputation of the third gens too.

    I know There are a few years I do not like as much as others too. Plenty of Trans Am owners call the 4th Gen Camaro's catfish I don't mind it...some people get their panties in a bunch though.

    I used to hate Trans Am's til recent years. Now I actually like them a lot more. I think it would be pretty badass to own a Camaro from every year.

    Ugly as piss. I'd rather watch 2 old people talk about their constipation than to look at one of those. Gross!

    This is a great question, My sister bought a brand new 1978 camaro bernilta, It had the 305 v 8 It turned out to be a huge piece of junk. The doors weighed a ton and started to sag, The windows had scratches in them from going up and down, The engine starting leaking oil and this was all in the first year of owning it. The dealer sucked and didnt help much with the warranty. I say the 1974 through 1980 camaros were crap.

    If I really had to pick something that isn't so favorable, it would be a 5th gen for me.

    I have to agree with Andy. The 2002 SS is one of the worst Camaro's ever built. The red is bad but the Silver is really SHit.

    As much as I've tried...I just don't care much for 5th gens, the ones I do like are modded visually or have a ZL1 logo.

    This is MADNESS!!

    I don't like the 3rd gen at all. Had a buddy with one and was so proud of it and talked about what he wanted to do with it but he never did. Got rid of it after all the issues he had. I love 2nd gen!
