they both can equally look good when done up.....it all depends on how well the car is put together and what class your in 2 win in car shows....
i personally like the 4th gen when done up right they look wicked good and being a female id go for a guy in a 4th gen rather than in a 3rd gen lol

A 3rdgen camaro blows away the looks of a 4th gen. The front end of 4th gens went from hideous to 12 pack ugly.

I have owned both, and I have to say the 3rd gen looks way better. The 4th gen is so pushed back and stretched out....Nose is too long, dash is too deep, engine is too far back in the cowl.

3rd gen with 315's out back poking out of the fenders....yeah...

And besides, 3rd gen do something none of the other ones do....TURN!


If you really have to have LT1/LS1 power, the swap is not that hard....I helped a buddy pull the 350 out of his 89 IROC just yesterday to make room for an LS1/T-56.

Why? 3rd gens are lighter, and have a better setup front suspension from the factory.

I used to auto-x a 92 B4C/1LE Camaro a 305, and I kept up with LT1/LS1 guys all day long. In fact, at the Southwest divisional just a few weeks ago, a 92 B4C beat me and another guy in his 02 Z28.

There's no better looking F-body IMO than a red IROC-Z, period. I think the 3rd gen is a classic, the lines are so unique. The 4th is great but it lost a bit of its pinache.

I also think that the 3rd gens are far too boxy for me. My favorite would have to be the 93-97 4th gens, just because i do not like the headlights on newer 98+.

i really like the 98-02 camaros. id choose it over a third gen, however i have seen a 3rd gen in a electron blue or someting similar and it was gorgeous. third gens jsut have the mullet reputation

The thirdgen 'vert I have gets a lot of looks and you just don't see that many of 'em . The T/A is definite eye-candy and has a vastly superior interior. I really can't say one is better than the other.I like the 3rd's engine bay a lot better.

I really can't see how anyone could take a mullet over a 4th gen. Interior alone is enough for me. And yeah, the technology under the hood sucks in the mullet too.

Sure I know, no one is keeping it stock you say, but still. They just arent that great.

Plus you can't get a six speed in a mullet, and as far as handling is concerned, power should make the difference on most autox tracks between the generations. If someone is driving quicker in a 3rd gen, IMO its likely driver skill and grippy tires.

3rd gen handle better.

Horsepower means nothing at auto-x.

At Southwest Divisonal #2, LS1 (driven by Frank Bryan-finished 3rd at Nationals last year, and had top PAX at Divisional #1 for the entire event) lost to a 92 B4C/1LE 305 Camaro driven by Matt Miller. Both on Kumho V710's.
