Pictures are backwards. That picture is a picture of the 2010 Hennessey 600. Here is the ZL1 that is making the trip.

Just doing 650 this trip. Waited 5 months and 24 days on the Z. Would have to leave it at Hennessey for 30 days for the 700. Just don't want to let it go for that long right now. Want to play some first....will do 700 later.

Just a word of caution. When you leave the Hennessey facility in Sealy it would not be wise to jump on I-10 and drop the hammer too quickly. The DPS patrol the area very heavily and they ARENT forgiving. :thumb down: I live 10 miles from there and have had my fill of getting stopped in the area. Also, anything over 100 mph and they can take you to jail on the spot and charge you with reckless endangerment. Maybe John will let you take it out on the track behind the facility.

Thanks. I'll be driving the motor home out. Took the 600 on the road course and drag strip last time.

Wish you would have given me this warning three years ago when I left their facility. 1st on ramp... nailed it to hear my new exhaust for the first time and immediately got a ticket... and the speed limit is 70 out there...

What Camaros... all I see is one beautiful rig...

LOL! Yep...they patrol heavily in that area and they have all the tricks down to catch you on the ramps so radar detectors are useless. They know Hennessey is there of course and there are several truck stops in the area as well so its heavily patrolled. BTW...the speed limit in Texas has been raised to 75 so expect them to be changing those signs in the area over the next year.

Not to mention doing the work anywhere else it will not be a Hennessey conversion it would be just another modified Camaro so what is the point.

Besides racebum and John H go way back so Hennessey is the only company he will let touch his cars.

Down the road resale value will come into play and when you deal with a company like Hennessey, Lingenfelter, or Callaway these cars will bring in a higher premium because of the name. When you have a car that is worked on by ADM, Torq, ect… in the eyes of resale value it’s just another car that was worked on by another performance shop I am not saying the work they do is subpar I am not it’s just they just do not have the same prestige. If you had 2 ZL1’s side by side one that is a Hennessey HPE 650, and the other ZL1 that was worked on by Adam performance or Torq, or Vengeance Racing which ZL1 do you think will draw the most attention it also comes down to trust he knows the kind of work they do and you stick with what works.
