Post GM sanctioned 2009 SEMA Camaros list announced

As featured on homepage.

The 2010 Camaro is one of the most anticipated cars for this year's 2009 SEMA show (November 3-6). Last year's show saw GM bring a lineup of its own concept design cars (see post here). For the 2009 SEMA show, the GM Design Team has chosen and awarded the following 8 car designers/tuners each their own Camaro to build on behalf of GM. The winning list includes some SEMA veterans, such as Rick Bottom and Neil Tjin.

-- Tjin Edition – Neil Tjin
-- National Guard – Nick Ashby
-- Rick Bottom Designs – Rick Bottom
-- Sound Choice Audio and Performance – Mark Abate
-- Bomex Aero
-- DSO Eyewear
-- Conrad Grunewald
-- Trent’s Trick Upholstery


Judging by the past creations of these designers, the one thing we can be sure of seeing at SEMA are fully customized Camaros, from top to bottom, inside to out. For example, Neil Tjin's "Tjin Edition Modern Hot Rod Chevy Camaro" will feature custom iForged 3-piece wheels wrapped in Falken tires; SSBC brakes; Air Lift suspension and a custom-built engine with JE pistons, Vortech supercharger, BDL accessories, MagnaFlow exhaust, American Racing headers and a Nitrous Express setup. The interior will feature GlowShift gauges, be carbon fiber trimmed with Status Racing carbon fiber seats and fitted with a Realm Audio system, as well as a Webasto sunroof. The exterior will feature black light WurkZ LED headlamps, Ignited HIDs and full-house Dupont custom green paint scheme.

Preview images of these designer Camaros will be released later this summer.

Sounds cool, but I'm still waiting to see what Chip Foose can do with this car.

You can officially colour me impressed when these guys can do a street legal version of these cars that the rest of us could build.

I don't think that's exactly the point of many of the cars shown at SEMA. Think of it like a fashion show of cars... designers showing off their ideas, many of which won't ever make it to production or on the roads.

That is why DSV Customs is trying to come out with many parts as we can to make the car more exotic feeling/smelling

The Tjin Editoin Camaro will have the show and go aspect, but there will be numerous parts found on our Camaro that the general public will be able to afford and purchase for their Camaro. Many of these manufactures see the popularity of the Camaro and are looking to make products for them. SEMA will be great place to see many high profile Camaro's and it will be a great thing for the GM brand!

Aside from the factory support, the SEMA auto show stands out because of the almost limitless number of small companies that come to Vegas to show off their latest new products. Products and the cars give others ideas of what can be done and sold to the public.

Wait wait wait... this is going to be enough of a beast to warrant air bags and carbon-fibre seats, yet they're going to install a sunroof?! Why would you do that to a car so obviously designed for the strip? Reducing torsional rigidity, adding mass, and destroying cockpit safety? Come on, you must have meant a rollcage or lexan windows or a fire-suppression system or something besides... a sunroof!

Nah I disagree - where are the Engineer specialists at?

It seems to me that if you install the rigid framework of a sunroof in place of flat sheet-metal you are increasing the structural integrity of the roof area. ...not reduce torsional rigidity or destroy cockpit safety. If it were a cockpit safety issue, GM wouldn't offer the Sunroof as an option.

Here is Webasto's product. ...and their YouTube web-ad.
