Really that depends on you and how you feel about each car and style. Personally I would trade a running 1997 firebird for a broke down 1978 camaro any day of the week. But that's just me. To me the 1978 camaro has more style and class than the 1997 firebird. In my opinion. But we all know what they say about opinions.

Not just an opinion, but a fact- the old iron has a lot more class- one example comes to mind: Ferrari

If you're looking at it from an investment standpoint then yes. Nobody wants a V6 Firebird. Anyone who does is not aware of the huge job it is to put a V8 into one of those cars correctly. If you're looking at it as an old car to keep and enjoy then get what you like. That's what I do. When I go after an old car it's because, for whatever reason, I like it. I only worry about what it's worth when I buy or sell a car. Otherwise I just enjoy it. HTH. -Jim
