Love the show; they are a great shop. Aaron is great for a mechanic for someone who never went to school for it.

I am not a fan of "reality" TV, but I do like this show. Can't stand the cheap builds and the clear over rust. That's why Casey is my fav on the show, cuz he will call RR out on this.

Am I the only one who actually likes it when RR gets "screwed" at auctions?

But overall they do put out some nice cars. Makes it worth watching!

Not a big fan of the larger cowl hood on the COPO and doesn't look like you get A/C or power steering either? As a side note, I still think Junkyard Wars was the best.

I thought the 56 Nomad they built for Dale Jr was nice.
They have made a few good cars but most of them were not worth the effort.

I was there yesterday, food is good. Bar IMO sucked because I am a picky beer drinker and only drink Modelo and Lone Star which they don't carry :(

This is why....

2013 COPO Camaro #041 built by Richard Rawlings from Gas Monkey Garage at the GM Factory. This is a once in a lifetime chance to own this one of one Gas Monkey Garage COPO Camaro. Included in the documentation are all the Build Sheets for the chassis and spec sheets for the LS7 based 427 with a 2-speed Powerglide transmission. This is a advertized as 8 second ¼ mile car which makes it the fastest COPO Camaro ever built. All of the torque stamps have the Gas Monkey Garage logo which signifies this as a one-of-a-kind opportunity to honor the COPO Legacy. The complete build with Richard Rawlings in the GM Factory and raceway testing will be featured on an upcoming episode of the hit show Fast N Loud. A limited production of 69 cars was selected to commemorate the original number of ZL-1 COPO Camaros made in 1969. COPO, which stands for Central Office Production Order, was Chevrolet's special order system, notoriously used by dealers in the 1960s to build high-performance models that couldn't be found anywhere else. The second coming of the COPO name is an extension of the legacy started in 1969, when the first purpose-built Camaro drag racing specialty car was designed to compete with the quickest in NHRA's Stock Eliminator and Super Stock classes. Born to dominate in a straight line, this beast is specially engineered to punish the strip, not to mention the competition. COPO is a true racing machine. It is specifically offered for off-highway, competitive NHRA use only. It cannot be registered, titled, licensed, or driven on public roads or highways. The COPO Camaro is designed to NHRA racing specifications, including a solid axle and a full chrome-moly roll cage. Inside, most of the standard sound-deadening and power accessories have been deleted in order to optimize weight for NHRA racing. Also included are a pair of racing bucket seats (no rear seat), a safety harness for the driver, a competition floor shifter and Chevrolet Performance gauges. **NOT STREET LEGAL, SOLD ON BILL OF SALE ONLY**

They usually don't like to touch anything that is fairly new especially brand new. I wouldn't bid on that Camaro even if i had the money just so i could over pay something with their hideous decals all over it. YUCK!

It's strictly a 1/4 mile car...not street legal. No creature comforts necessary.

Not sure what they changed to make it an 8 second car. The 2013 427 Copo Camaro (Which is the largest, most powerful Copo engine this year) is a 9.20 to 9.60 car off the Build Center Floor. I was told this by Jamie Meyer, who is the Chevrolet Performance Marketing Manager. Fill the 6 Gallon Tank with Sunoco Supreme 112 Octane, and take it to the track. I'm sure most of the specs were "tweaked" a little bit for TV. I guess we will see once the show airs.

GMG Also had a 2013 Camaro Drag Chassis for sale for $85,000, that could have been bought new for $55,000. it is basically a Copo Camaro Rolling Chassis built be the guys at the Copo Build Center. It is complete except for the engine and trans. I saw a couple of these cars in the shop when I picked up my Copo in July. They are not considered Copo Cars, and are serialized differently, and do not have Copo markings on the car anywhere.

A true Copo has the Copo Logo on the grill, the Breather caps on the valve covers, and it is part of the serial number. A typical Copo Serial Number is 2013COPO-0XX depending upon what the car's number is. It also has a copy of the original sales certificate in the trunk, as well as one hidden in the car in another place. The original owners name, dealer name and car number are listed on this certificate as well as the cars color, engine, trans, and graphics color for future reference. The CDC Cars have a Serial number 2013CDC-0XX. I was told only 20 of these rollers were offered for sale. Even the wheels are different on these cars because the Copo cars have Copo machined into the wheels.

I saw this car recently at a local cruise night. The owner bought it at the Reno Barrett Jackson auction for 125k.
It sounds awesome.

None of the '13's can run an 8, no way. There are 2 local to me, one is the world's fastest at 8.49. The fastest a 427 car has been is in the 9.20's.
