Default Pontiac Trans Am VS Chevrolet Camaro

So i am Trying to get a trans am, I used to be looking for a Camaro and lately i have been thinking about both. So i am wondering what do you guys think Trans Am or Camaro? Better yet WS6 vs SS, personally im on the Trans Am side.

Personal preference really.. I had a TA but I like my SS better.. I wouldn't mind having a LT1 Trans Am for a DD.

I think all 4th gens look good, besides lt1 formulas and firebirds.

Other than appearance, Camaro's have better door panals and T/A's have better seats.

SS IMHO. The WS6's look sharp, but I'm a Camaro guru.

I like the TA interior better. The round vents look way better than rectangle. also, the ws6 smokes the ss in appearance.

They will never make a Trans Am/Formula again. Camaro's came back.

^ More of a reason i would want a T/A.

I've had both and like my T/A much better. To me it has a much better interior(seats, dash, vents, door panels, etc) and looks much better by appearance. Although i hate that with a WS.6 there seems to be less appearance mods you can do to it vs a camaro b/c the WS.6 is pretty much perfect the way it is. Just go sit in a camaro and then sit in a T/A and you'll prob instantly know which one you like better, I know i did.

I like the TA much better then the SS. I wound up buying an SS because it was what I found, lol. Got over it very quickly.

The Camaro is a FAR superior car. It looks better, drives better and lasts longer. The Trans Am is too ricey with the massive spoiler and bolt-on ground effects. The Camaro is also MUCH faster. Even a V6 Camaro is faster than an LS1 Trans Am. WS6s are the slowest of them all.

Firebird vs Camaro threads are pointless. Same car, different skin. Neither is better or worse, just a different look to suit different tastes. Anyone who actually believes that one is superior to the other is either ignorant or immature. The end.
