Love the over the radiator intake and the fact that they converted from manual to auto.
Bumper to bumper perfection.

Absolutley amazing work and great attention to detail. Its great that all components are going to be hidden. Im interested on how the air intake will come out.

I would have stayed with a manual trans but to each his own. What will be the estimated horspower and when will it be completed?

Will there be a video with some high quality audio. I would love to hear what it sounds like.

Great job.

So he's a douchebag because he is a professional athlete? And I suppose he will likely be "rolling up and down the streets of the "hood" with thug rap music bouncing it up and down" because he is black? Thanks for upholding the ageold stereotype that Camaro owners are a bunch of redneck bigots...

And to think, all I wanted was for APS to convert the LS1/2 kits up to LS3 spec; then this comes along! What-the ham-sandwhich?! Did I hear 1200 on pump gas and 2000 something sustainable hp?

Very nice. A work of art actually.

But, I doubt he ever drives it. Probably a clause in his contract about dangerous side activities. Can't imagine the team liking this too much...

Living in Tennessee and being an alumni of the University of Tennessee and an avid football fan, I can tell all of you that Eric Berry has broken all the molds when it comes to being a student athlete. Great kid from a great family, never once got into any off the field issues and was an outstanding leader and representative of our state and school. This kid did it the right way and is now being rewarded for years of hard work and dedication. He will be sorely missed at UT for years to come..

This guy is humble, smart and one of the best football players we have ever seen play at Tennessee - we rank him 3rd amongst our football legends behind Peyton Manning and Reggie White. I expect nothing but class and dominance from him - on the field and now on the streets...

I am just so pumped that he and I drive the same exact car - well sort of....

Because of the youth and wealth in professional sports we tend to focus on them as examples of what is wrong with our society. Athletes are no different than any other segment in our society. There are freaks and flakes in every profession. I have had the opportunity to work with a number of sports celebrities and superstars. Most of the charitable work they do will never be written about because they CHOOSE to keep it private.

I arranged for a terminally ill 11 year old boy to meet with his hero about 25 years ago. When Coach Ditka met the boy a reporter came over. He asked the reporter to leave. The reporter replied it was great PR and a story would be a tear jerker. Ditka was furious, but controlled. The reporter left. Ditka got on both knees and had a conversation in whispers with the boy. I thanked the Coach for making time. He told me there were no thanks required. Wouldn't anyone take time to help a child in need?

The boy's parent' asked him what he and the coach had talked about. The boy said it was a secret. The coach had his secretary call me and made arrangements for the boy to come to a practice. They gave him a jersey and a ball autographed by the team. There was no press about any of this.

The boy was buried wearing his jersey and with his autographed ball.

My point is that the good most people do is rarely made public. All we hear about are the bad things. It isn't news when we do what we should do. It is news when we don't. Maybe that is the way it should be. I have told very few people about this particular incident. Usually it comes up when people are talking about spoiled professionals in sports. Make no mistake about it, there are losers and jerks in every profession. Just try to remember it is the losers and jerks that make headlines.
