For today’s Car Clash, we thought we’d mix it up a bit, so instead of comparing one moniker to another, we thought it interesting to pit a current model with its predecessor. In this case, the first-generation Chevrolet Camaro against the current fifth-gen model.
With the first generation, we have a certain vintage charm and simplicity that is hard to find in anything offered today. But in the fifth-generation Camaro, we’ve got a near-perfect blend of new-age performance technology in a retro-inspired body.
In our eyes, it’s a draw. So we’re turning to you for the tie-breaker. Does the new Camaro eclipse the original? Or is the first-generation model irreplaceable?
