Camaro all the way. I think the WS6 is ugly as chit. Tacky bubbly body components with some of the ugliest taillights put on a car don't make for a very attractive design. The 98-02 Camaro's were dead sexy and very clean.

I own one of each, and I like the T/A's more aggressive styling better. The Camaros are cleaner, but the T/A's turn more heads.

Both cars make exactly the same power with the same engine, drivetrain, and chassis so performance is the same.

There are very small differences between the interiors, but not enough to make me favor one over the other.

When people come to my house they always want a ride in the T/A and not the Camaro, so this says something to me.

The TA looks like it won the contest for the car with the most scoops and air ducts.

For that reason alone - the TA wouldn't make my top 50 list of good looking cars.

The Camaro, year in and year out, is a cleaner, simpler, and better looking car.

I've often heard that the Camaro looks like it could kick your a$$ but the Trans Am looks like it's actually coming over to do it.

The T/A just has that "get the F out of my way" look to it. It is extreme and not for everyone, but that is it's best selling point for me.

Just for fun, the Camaro's have often been compared to a catfish or a Chrysler Seabring:






And the T/A's to the Batmobile:

The scoops and curvy stuff just doesn't do it for me. It's pretty typical of the Pontiac designs of the 90's with all the extra cladding and junk they stuck on their cars. Maybe I just like nice clean designs, never been a big fan of aftermarket body kits either because they seem to do the same thing to clean designs.

If I had to choose, I'd take the SS with T-tops.

I would rather have the Camaro for the clean cut look. Although the T/A just looks like it's going to own you at any moment. I'm a Chevrolet fan and although both are the same cars, I want the bo-tie emblem and the Camaro written on my car somewhere.

Those were strong cars. My cousin had a 02 T/A 6-speed WS6 package with 335HP stock with the ram air. He installed a flowmaster exhaust system and a new computer and I swear that car had no problem burning the tires through 1st, 2nd and would burn em through 3rd as far as you wanted. I had never been in a car that could burn them in 3rd gear like that car could.
