Post What do you guys think about the second gen camaro

I got a 1980 camaro Z/28 with a 350ci engine and a muncie 4-speed.Its black exterior and red leather interior.I love that car, its so fun to drive and I get a lot of looks in it.I know It's not the best looking camaro they ever made,but I don't think its that bad, do you?My personal favorate camaro is the first gens, but I still love the second gens.Once you own one I think you apreshiate it alot more.

I thought those were the third generation? They are the third total bodystyle change? This generation sheet confuzzles the woozie goozles outa me.

To answer your question my fave bodystyle is the '70-73, after they changed the tailights I lost intrest. I built a Z28 that same bodystyle for a friend, black with charcoal Z28 decals. I have to admit, I despised that bodystyle when it arrived to the shop, but after I put the decals on it grew on me. Not to shabby, no my fav, but if you like it who cares what I think.

Isn't an '80 Camaro the 3rd Generation? But I like them too.
My favorite is the 70 1/2 with the split front bumper and the round taillights.
Anyone remember the movie 'Fast Times at Ridgemont High'? That Camaro in that movie was pretty sweet...until they wrecked it.

"my brothers gonna kill me!"
"No dude...he's gonna *****...then he's gonna kill you"
"Dude...we can fix this. My dad's a plumber...he's got some tools"

I love that movie...
Later Dude,

I had a second Gen 70 1/2 split bumper in 73. Loved it. Wish I still had it. Although I ride in both my older boys had 3rd gens. and I have a little harder time getting in and out of them then I uae to. At least my second oldest dosen't have his Fiero anymore. I had to roll out on the ground to get out of it . Way to low but massive amounts of fun to drive.

84 is right about the 82 being second generation, Car Craft had an interesting article on the top 36 camaros in the Sept issue.69 was first rated, 70 was second,80 was last 84 was 21st. Dan
