I would take the camaro if it were me. I have a 1980 z28, although that one is a bernlinetta which doesn't look nearly as nice IMO. Both those cars appear in need of lots of work so really it all depends on what you want to do with it. Good luck and enjoy!

I would have to say (while doing so going against my morals as I'm a MOPAR man), to go with the Camaro. This style of Camaro is not the most attractive, but could still become a reliable daily driver, while making some power for the weekend, and with a few "custom" pieces, like chin spoiler, hood scoop, deck spoiler and nice wheels/paint, the Camaro could be a unique looking and fun car.

My mom had a '69 Opel GT back when it was a year old. she said it would cruise 120 MPH all day, and she did that quite often going from NY to Michigan thru Canada.. and got 42 MPG.. had a '70 in the early 80's but had the automatic ( kinda rare ) and it developed some trans issues and needed trans work.. my dad didn't have the time or money to do anything to it, so it got sold.. my mom said the '69 was the most reliable car she ever owned.. sold in 1979 to a kid who wrecked it 2 weeks later

I'd go with the Opel but I'm one that likes being different....and the Opel is and always will be more of a collectors item than that 79 Camario will ever be. I bet I stepped on a few toes with that comment lol

what is a camero
If you are being a S/A it is the mis-spelled version of Camaro, as though you needed someone to tell you. If you really had no clue, then why even ask? At your age, one would expect you know how to act, or at least have a clue about what the guy is asking about seeing as how this is a car (hot rod) forum. I suppose a camero could be mis-spelled version of cameo, in which case 'cameo appearance' may apply. If it was a cameo, that would be what you did 'back in the day'. I wonder, at 100 years of age, what year did you start hot-rodding? I'm thinking it was like last year, when you finally got out of grade school. LOL

maybe it was camera...
