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.

he does diesel. run a scoop on the hood to feed a massive turbo sticking out the hood. or reroute the exhaust to be able to run twin turbos.

HAHA just saw this... It's to bad your wait would be twice as long as the preorder deal. I used to work in the race shop. Some cool toys but Gale is a tool!

I ordered mine through Berger, there is no plan for a berger camaro. Not saying that somebody else wont do it and they will slap a berger badge on it. But at their facility they are not doing it

Nickey Chicago the Hi-Performance Division of the Famous Nickey Chevrolet was the the first to install the biggest and baddest available GM engine in a Camaro, way back in 1966, when the Camaro was first introduced. The first transplant was a 450hp L72 427ci, over the counter engine and soon to follow was the the L88 427ci Aluminum head engine and eventually the all aluminum ZL1 427ci engine.

Don Swiatek, Nickey's only Hi-Performance Cars and parts manager said "this feels just like 1967 all over again".

Check out some of the Vintage advertisements and articles from back in the day.

It seems to me like modern emission & noise regulations would really crimp what dealers can do to the cars and still keep it "legal". Plus the warranty issues already mentioned. So you end up with $5000-$10,000 dealer packages that are mostly decals and dress-up parts.
