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.

regarding the build; Speachless, just too beautiful for words.

regarding your story; The story brought tears to my eyes, evoking feelings of reverence for great human beings with humility, charity and kindness in their heart. I am humbled to be in a forum with such good people, I know there are great people out there. I feel these feelings usually for veterans of war, active duty personel, EMTs, firemen and police officers. I have seen men and women put themselves in danger or even make the greatest sacrafice for the wellbeing and immediate saftey of others. Thank you for bringing a clear perspective with honesty and sensitivity. Truely I am greatful and humbled.

The ignorance expressed in this post is what is truly detestable. It's true, there are professional athletes that are less than model citizens, and there are even a few that are criminally inclined. But to label "most" of them as such is ridiculous.

Perhaps you should do a little research next time before you start spewing garbage. Eric Berry is an outstanding example of character and class, and I would much rather associate myself with him than with you.

Now as for the original thread subject, that Camaro is sick. Sickeningly awesome. Back when he was drafted, Berry had said that he wanted a new Camaro, but I never imagined anything like this. Hopefully sometime when I'm back home I'll have a chance to meet the car, and its driver, in person.


Final thoughts:
Go Chiefs! 8-8 this year. Playoff contenders in 2011. Superbowl Champions 2012 season.

Wowzers! Amazing build and what's crazy is one of the guys at National Speed left a business card on the windshield of my Camaro when I was at Shooter's Choice indoor range right next door a couple weeks back! Now I wish I was going to be stationed in NC just a little longer!!

Holy sucotash, Batman! Please keep us posted on this amazing story.

A streetcar that could be a 7 second track car? Wow!

I love to see those that can afford something like this choose the stud Camaro.
Happy to be the "little brother" who can say, "yeah, but my big brother can beat you up. lol

It would be awesome to see this bad boy at the Oct. 7-10 LSX shootout in St. Louis.

Be safe, proud, and enjoy.

I thought the NFL guys had things in their contracts that prevented them from driving motorcycles and doing other "dangerous" stuff that can put a team's investment at risk, I guess owning a rocket ship on wheels isn't one of those things

Aside from the awesome car he chose to associate with his name he seems to have a good head on his shoulders as well...

I just wanted to say thanks to everyone for the kind words about the build, they are greatly appreciated. Also, Eric appreciates the kind words about him and his performance. Anyone who doubts how great of a guy Eric is, I'd just like to let you know he is nothing short of a stellar person.

The picture angles and lighting offer a bit of an optical illusion concerning space constraints, everything is actually clearanced rather well.

Locating and purchasing the car was left to us, we chose the six-speed manual 2SS simply because the electronics would be simpler for our stand-alone transmission system. Essentially, we're changing the steering wheel, shifter console, brake pedal, brake master-cylinder reservoir and of course the electronics. It's generally straight forward once the transmission is in place, we had to do a little bit of fabricating to make the 4L80E fit the transmission tunnel and mount up properly.

Remaining consistent with our over engineered theory of this vehicle (i.e. the powertrain is built to sustain 2,000hp+), we needed the drivetrain to follow suit. The highest horsepower we've seen a fully built 6L80E handle is shade over 1,000whp. We wanted the factor of failure to be around 60% at maximum operation, so the built 6L80E was out of the question. With the four speed and proper gearing in the transmission and third member, it will drive nicely on the street and still put the power down.

Haha, that was me.

Come stop by and check out this car when you're in Wilmington again, I'd be happy to give you a tour and talk Camaros.

When can we see the finish product? and what was the total cost. I like the upgrade but silver would have been better.
