Tom Henry Racing Announces a Special Edition 2010 Camaro!

In late March, Tom Henry Racing announced plans to market its own special-edition 2010 Camaro. The "Tom Henry Racing Camaro" will build on the reputation established by Tom Henry Racing (THR) when it built and sold the unique "Tom Henry SS" Camaro during 2001 and 2002.

This customized, performance-enhanced version of the new, 2010 version of Chevrolet's famed sports coupe will be sold exclusively by Tom Henry Racing, the high-performance subsidiary of Bakerstown, Pennsylvania dealer, Tom Henry Chevrolet.

"At Tom Henry Racing, we've always been partial to Camaro," Henry says. "Our special Camaros have always been more narrowly-focused products for hard core enthusiasts. The focus is on the look and feel of a road racing car. Our appearance upgrades and performance modifications are intended to give our customers that road race ambience."

During an announcement at his dealership 15 miles north of Pittsburgh, Henry laid out tentative plans for the next version of his company's specialized interpretation of the Camaro--a car for that iconic Chevrolet's most serious fans. One point which Henry drove home is that, unlike his company's last Camaro customizing effort, the new Tom Henry Racing Camaro program allows buyers more leeway in "cherry-picking" various appearance and performance enhancements to make just the "THRC" they want.

The Chevy hot rodders at THR will start with either the V6 Camaro LT or the V8-powered SS. You can have a Tom Henry Racing Camaro in any stock color along or a special extra cost, THR Jetstream Blue. On V8's, the stock grille will be replaced by a tricked-out "SS Grille" specially designed by Tom Henry Racing. A front splitter is an option and gives the car a very aggressive look from the front. Three more, optional, visual enhancements are planned, twin "racing" stripes, inspired by the popular look of the first generation Camaros, the Hockey-Stick stripe package popular on the '69s, or right front fender "hash marks" which carry on the visual tradition of the 1996 Grand Sport and the 2007 Ron Fellows edition Corvette Z06es.

Giving the rear of the car a hard-core, performance accent, the space between the tail lights on the Tom Henry Camaros will get a matte-black-coated "tail panel" and a body-color "duck tail" type spoiler, like the one used in the "Jr. Camaro" concept shown at the 2008 SEMA Show, will be another choice. All the cars will get a "Tom Henry Racing" windshield header and special Tom Henry Racing Camaro nameplates on the front fenders.

Stock Camaro springs will be replaced by higher-rate, aftermarket springs which will both firm-up the car's handling and improve its appearance by lowering it half to three-quarters of an inch. Unique aftermarket wheels will replace the stock pieces. The combination of the lower ride height and different wheels better fill the wheel wells and gives the THRC that hard-core, racer look the stock Camaro lacks, but which is demanded by serious enthusiasts interested in uncompromising road cars.

Tom Henry Racing Camaros will have some specially-selected modifications to the powertrain. Both the V6 and V8 versions will be equipped with an aftermarket, low-restriction exhaust system, a low-restriction, cold-air intake system and custom ECM programming. In addition, the V8 THRCs can be fitted with a set of long-tube headers and the exhaust system will incorporate an X-pipe. The LS3 engine will get a set of 1.85:1 rocker arms. Taken as a package, these changes should increase a THRC V8's power from the stock 422-hp to 440-hp. If a Tom Henry Racing customer selects an optional supercharger, available early in 2010, horsepower goes to over 500.

The first of the Tom Henry Racing Camaros will be ready by late June 2009.

Good question. I don't know. Shoot him an email, see what he says, and let us know.

Thumbs down

So let's see, put a set of painted BBS REs (which aren't made anymore) on it, slap on an altered stripe vinyl, one of those hideous boy-racer windshield headers, do something (what?) to the suspension and exhaust (don't SSes come with X-pipes to begin with?), a license plate frame, an airbox and an ECM tune. How much, and why do I want his name on my car again?

You need to do some more research. Even after the edit. Most of your comments are a bit ignorant.

If you don't like the wheels, you can do smething different. That's one of the cool things about his deal....but, I'm sure you read that, right?

Altered stripe vinyl...um...yeah...a signature of Tom's...and?

"hideous boy-racer windshield header"....ok, you don't like it. you are entitled to your own opinion.

something to the suspension?...yep. Has to do w/ springs...

exhaust? ... x-pipes? ...well, I believe the details included headers...which just about everyone wants...or would love to put on their cars....

license plate frame? sorry...didn't see that one in the details...

air box and tune? ... another option a lot of people would like....but probably not you. ...which is okay... I can respect that.

how much is a question which depends on your configuration.

Why you want his name on your car: Read his link and what he did w/ 4th Gens...and swapping in LS7's in place of LS1's...

Tom did a lot to make special edition 4th Gens. They are highly sought out by some enthusiasts. Some folks like to make "their own" special Camaro. Others like to have the dealer put everything together in a package for them. If you want to leave your car stock....or build it up to your liking by yourself....or get it from the factory to the dealer and have the dealer help you create something special, then that's the way to go.

Personally, I want to own a piece of piece of history that will retain it's value, is something different from factory, and will be looked at with wide eyes from not just the general public, but enthusiasts as well.

Everyone has their own opinions and I respect other folks choices. If something floats your boat, then cool. This is what I like...and many others like special editions as well....like Baldwin Motion, Berger, Yenko, Dick Herrell, etc....and to my knowledge, not a whole lot of people do special editions any more. So, here it is. Tom is trying to build a special edition for those enthusiasts who want to own something from the factory/dealer that is "special."

I could reference some special edition Mustangs or Lingenfelter as well, but hopefully you understand what we mean when we talk about special edition Camaros now as well.

Take care!

Yep. Waiting on SLP and testing to further possible Stage II and Stage III THRSS's. Can't wait to see how those turn out!

Man, only a bump to 440HP with rockers, exhaust, tune, cold air intake, headers.
I guess the stock Camaro's engine setup is pretty darn good. It's awesome these cars
are gonna have aftermarket mods. IE Yenko, Baldwin, Nicky etc. It's bringing back
some of the old school stuff and that is very cool thing.

Kinda offtopic But: you know what would be cool... Instead of having the Chevy Bowtie in the middle of the grill There would be a SS symbol or A RS symbol

SS on all ss cars

RS on every v6 car

I guess that what the after market company's are for.

Wait if you take out the Chevy emblem there will be a indentation where the emblem was .. So i think you would have to buy a separate Grill
