well, Im glad you have your feeling about that. Can I ask what sucked about your 85 TA and 92 Bird that you think the third gens are such POS?Originally posted by silvachris1@Dec 13 2003, 07:45 PM
First off, being a person who has driven every generation of Fbody (68 RS/SS, 71 Z28. 81 Z28. 85 TransAm. 92 Firebird. 97 Camaro, 99 Camaro, 02 TransAm WS6), I am a person with strong opinions about which Fbodys are the best. After driving all of those models, I can say that the Gen 1 and the early Gen 2 Fbodys are great cars and fun to drive, but they still fall second to the late Gen 4 cars. The Gen 3 Fbodys, I feel were the worst ones ever. I never had so many complaints about a vehicle in my life. Nothing wrong engine wise, just a ton of little things, all the time. I hated that 92 Firebird. I would never own another one again in my life. My favorite Fbody so far has been my 99 Camaro (V6) and the 02 TransAm that I've been privileged enough to drive several times. The 4th Gens are great, even though, you'll probably mention reliability problems that "plague" the 4th gens. Let me guess, the power window motors, and the 4L60-E transmissions? What else?
Anyhow, would you like to go into detail please and describe what kind of outlook I have on cars? What kind of attitude do I have? Do go into detail on this stereotype about 4th Gen owners. Maybe you just mean the LS1 owners? I don't know.
You say "Thank GOD GM kept most of the design of the third gen in the 4th gen. " I say they should have changed it even more. The 3rd gen was a flawwed design to begin with, and everything should have been left behind with the 92 model. That's all I have to say.
Preach it my brutha! Preach it!"I have an LS1/LT1 and that makes my car the best in the world and no one can touch me cause my car was crafted from god and all other cars bow down before the mighty 4th gen."
I really liked this part the best, in fact I am going to put it in my signature.no one can touch me cause my car was crafted from god
It's funny, you seem to think the Camaro and Firebird were two completely different cars. I don't think it's fair to compare them to the Mustang's sales apart. If the Mustang had a twin, you'd see each twin sell half as many cars as the Mustang does now.Combined it was still being outsold by the mustang.
Funny comment from someone who obviously could not have a job that would allow one to afford a full trim, 4th generation fbody.why it was an inferrior car in its many aspects

You do realize he was commenting on how all of you seem to be full of yourselves right, and not commenting on fourthgens.
I'm guessing you're mainly talking about the Camaro. If the T/A had been anymore aggressive, if would have killed the editors of Car and Driver just by pointing in their direction (Excerpt from C&D - "Like, oh.. my.... god frank, this car is like totally angry, much more than my miyatah. Teehee, instead of driving it, lets write a fake review and go redecorate my bedroom teehee. Your toyota or my mazda? Oh my god frank, your interior is like totally amazing.")-drop the cars weight
-more agressive nose
-bigger, 255/275 tires
-and one wish... an LS6.
