I'm not generally one to bash, but if that's the actual price that it absolutely ludicrous for what the car is. Chevy's just trying to cash in on the COPO name, and "Camaro History" here...

actually if you figure out the percentage difference from the orginal SS in 1969 vs the 1969 COPO price. The 89K is pretty damn close in todays market for 2012 LS3 SS vs 2012 COPO

1969 sport coupe Camaro = $2,7xx in 1969
1969 Hi Perf COPO Camaro = $7,0xx sticker price with the aluminum 427.

Thats about 160% mark up in the SS price in 1969.

Todays figures: 2012 1SS LS3 BASE = 31,980 X 2.60% = $83148 That value would increase considerably if you wanted to compare the 2SS RS cars.

Well I guess mathematically you are correct by todays inflation numbers... But still for that price, I could probably build 2 that would preform equally well... This is just a collectors piece, and a get rich scheme for GM at that price.

Does anyone know approximate HP figures for those engines? Maybe I'll get one to beef up my wife's mini-van.

Finally a Solid Rear Axle, just as Pony cars were intended to be.

Have you priced a new Mustang "Cobra Jet"? $92 - 104,000
http://www.autoblog.com/2011/04/04/f...ick/#continued

How about the Challenger "Drag Pack V10" version? $85K and up...
http://www.autoblog.com/2010/10/01/2...per-v10-power/

"COPO" is priced "appropriately"... If you deliver your new 1SS to a recognized shop, and give 'em a blank check, you'll be in that neighborhood by the time you return with your trailer...and at that time, you'll own a butchered-up SS, NOT a "COPO"...

As mentioned, I have a "letter of intent" for THREE...from one guy...so don't dilly-dally.

Has it been mentioned where these are being built?

I see it starts with a body in white, curious as to who builds it from there.

They're not "new" to this sort of Program...as you would expect from GM, who won't trust the Program success to "rookies".

Are any of the people buying this going to race it, or are they going to become dust collectors for the next 20+ years in hopes they will be as sought after as the 69's? GM needs to build about 2,000 of them, that way we are guaranteed to see a handfull of them make passes at the track.

Thought it said in Wixom, MI. But maybe that was just the engines.

It's a pretty cool offering by GM to make this for the hard core racers out there.
