Camaro Resurrection: Bringing a Car Back to Life after Sitting for 20 Years

Some car projects become much more than just an exercise in coaxing an engine to life or cleaning a pile of corrosion underneath a stuck thermostat. Sometimes there’s a personal side to it- a call to duty that makes the effort much more important than just the process of replacing parts. I drove down to Escondido, California – just north of San Diego – back in 1979 to write a Cruisin’ USA story for the February, 1980 issue of Car Craft.

Old vs New, which one would you choose?

 

Comment on Facebook

There is no comparison, original is and will always look, sound better then anything new. But if u only want speed, strap a rocket to urself

If the retro models made their bodies exactly the same as what they were trying to duplicate I would own a retro vehicle. I do like the challenger over the mustang or camero though.

I hope the New ones aren't as Tinny sound when you close there as the Old ones were,, I like a Nice Thud, when I close a car door not a clunk.

As with the Camaro in the previous post, still the original! But in this case, the new one is a FAR better vehicle than most today.

The OLD definitely. I already have a newer one. But the classic with a shaker hood would be great to own.

New is nice, But....Old is Awesome !

Both are nice but I prefer the original

The verdict is.............OLD!!!

Always old, don't make them like they used to

I have a new one . Now l won't to build an old one. Love these cars.

I love them both but I bet the new one drives a lot better and overall is better .

Old school I prefer cars with chrome bumpers

Old with hell cat drive train

New for everyday driving and old for the good times.

OLD, JUST MORE CLASSY. ALL NEW CARS LOOKS ALIKE. OLD YOU COULD TELL WHAT IT WAS , BY JUST LOOKING AT IT, NOT THE EMBLEN

Old! Been auto detailer 30 years.. Have done both.. Old definitely better built!!

the new one is a good likeness but i would pick the old

The Old For Ever who wants to Drive around Plastic

Old would be my choice. I liked the power steering alot better then what we have now.

Old body with new power plant and chasis! Best of both worlds..

No problem... Old please. Nothing like a classic.

There is only one .the right one

Since I already have the new, I'll take the old.

The new one is better in every way!, with that said , I'll take the old one every time!

Its funny,the new can't beat the old tried and true!!!
