Yenko turned out cars till 81. So the majority were done at the factory. So unless I can order a LS7 LS9 LSA from the factory in my opinion it's not a COPO and Yenko went out of business. COPO allowed you to order a-lacart now everything s grouped in packages sadly. The only benefit of this is if your trying to be unique but at the sacrifice of less warranty & reliability, and more money.
Hmmmm.....learn something new everyday!!! Thanks for setting me straight. I was mistaken...
