I've had both as well. Gave up a '99 for a '92RS and have no regrets at all.

So the key is to just stay in the 3rdgen, then you don't know what your missing.

Sometimes I just got to get in the 3rdgen, or 2nd, or 1st and sure it's loud and unrefined, but then you go down the road and since 4thgens are everywhere and the other 3 aren't, everyone is hurting their neck turning around trying to get a glimpse of something they don't see.
Then I remember oh ya I don't just like these cars because they're are fast and corner good. I love them because the average public's jaw drops like you just rolled through with a 71 hemi cuda convertible or something.
And that's something a 4thgen won't be able to give me for at least another 10 years.
My thirdgen has no rattles, or perhapse I just can't here them over the exhaust?

Re: How many people here own both third and fourth gens?

I am looking at an 02 z28 now, had a good front end hit several years ago which was repaired , so will have to have alignment checked well before I buy, but kind of reluctant to sell my 92 z28/ g92/ LB9/m5 which is in excellent condition and does get many looks and comments. Unfortunately cant have both. The performance of the ls1 with m6 is addicting . Having a tough time deciding on keeping the 3rd or moving to the 4th

Re: How many people here own both third and fourth gens?

I have owned 2nd, 3rd, 4th gen cars just not all at the same time

2nd gen (77/78 T/A) is the coolest by far of any F Body but build quality pretty bad even for 70"s standards. After the Movie Smokey And The Bandit Pontiac could not make those cars fast enough and out of the factory there was a lot of issues with body parts not lining up right, trim pieces falling of etc.

3rd gen (IROC) by far the coolest looking Camaro and I still like them the best over my 4th gen. Even during not so great times the car did feel pretty good, peppy but the looks to me made up for a lot of down sides

4th gen (Z28) better car than 3rd gen and when they went to the LS1 even better but I still like my LT1.

Where someone said a better thing in the 4th gen over the 3rd gen is the cup holder,,, well OK yeah but the cup holder in my 93 still sucks.

Over all if I had a choice between 3rd gen IROC or 4th gen (even LS1) I chooze IROC

Have had both, an 88 IROC (which is currently for sale, if anyone is interested), and a 93. Much prefer the 88 IROC.
