Hi-performance dealers

At one time there was Baldwin-Motion, Yenko, Nickey, and a host of others--What dealers will reenter the fray--we know Nickey is in.anyone else out there? (like Berger)...

We don't know who those dealers are going to be for this generation. Some of the past ones may return to make new performers. The only one I know for certain that is out of the game is Yenko. The old Yenko Chevrolet is gone, and they apparently sell Hondas now.

Nickey is gone too, although they branched off into a performance sect nonetheless. Nickey Chicago is going to offer Stage I, II, and III performance mods for the new Camaro's worthy of the Nickey Camaro name. There's a thread here somewhere on it. All I want are the wheels.

As has been stated on several forums (and I'm pretty sure here as well), Motion Performance (what is left of the old Baldwin-Motion Chevy) has said on their website since right after the 2010 Camaro was OK'd for production that they would be doing a 5th gen version.

Although not a dealer, Steve Saleen has talked about creating his own rendition of our beloved Camaro......

I've talked with Berger and they are going to do something with GMMG. GMMG is waiting to get there hands on one.

I'm surprised that no-one has mentioned Tom Henry Racing yet.
He is related to the Fbodfather after all....

Saleen can stick with rustang, he's a prick.

GMMG should be in a good position to build unique cars.

Lingenfelter has an excellent reputation for go-fast chevy's.

Tom Henry may be a force to reckon with this time around (#1 on my list)...All around nice guy too. I think Tag may have more info on what's up in Pittsburgh.

I think the big issue this time around is, how far can they go without screwing the warrantee pooch.

This is a quote off Tom Henry racing website. "Oh yeah. We'll be in this time. Now I know where and how to advertise and market the Tom Henry SS. We could really take it and run with it. I think this will be a V8, rear-drive, sporty coupe and I bet we could make twice as many in first couple of years as we did in '01 and '02."

He later added how much fun a 500 hp car could be.

I was a big fan of Berger, but since I have plenty of time I think I could go with anyone.

I would kill for a gale banks diesel powered camaro. I would have so much torque and power that whenever I go to parades I would be physically able to throw torque out the window like candy for the kids.
