    Im bias so camaro only here. I may rag on mustangs but id own one before i even took a ride in a TA. I know most parts are interchangable with a camaro but if someone handed me the keys and title to a very rare mint condition all original TA for free, id take it apart and crush the whole thing not taking a dime from the crusher for it. Just my opinion.

    What year vehicles are we talking about here? Otherwise the poll is ambiguous. There were optional gear ratios (except in California).

    Camaro runs deep in the family. TAs only got sensationalized by smokey and the bandit. After the first movie the serise got stupid, and they made 7. They just are not my thing.

    Well that's a perfectly good reason as to why you would crush a car that is cousin to the Camaro.

    Having owned both cars(not a z,but a 400hp 355),and a 79 T/A,I would say Camaro off the line,but T/A at the end.
    My 403 was a dog off the line,but it had it on the highway.
