Cool COPO Camaro to star in "Fast N' Loud" tonight at 9 PM ET

Per Chevrolet:

Chevrolet Performance COPO Camaro to Star in Discovery Channel's "Fast N Loud"

The COPO Camaro will play a major starring role in tonight's (October 14, 2013, 9:00 PM EST) airing of Discovery Channel's hit automotive television show, "Fast N' Loud". Gas Monkey Garage owner and star of the show, Richard Rawlings and his sidekick, Dennis Collins, worked at the Performance Build Center in Wixom, MI as well as the COPO Camaro Build Facility to help assemble their 1-of-69 NHRA drag race Camaro.

Filmed in late June of this year, the show details the step-by-step process that it takes to hand build a COPO Camaro. Richard and Dennis started by building their 427 engine, then they headed off to the COPO Build Facility where they work side by side Chevrolet Performance technicians to add an NHRA-approved roll cage, straight axle conversion, and continue the process to build their COPO from the body-in-white up.

Along the way, the stars of "Fast N Loud" stop off at the GM Heritage Center to tour the over 100 year history of General Motors.

For a sneak peak at tonight's show, follow this link: http://dsc.discovery.com/tv-shows/fa...v-schedule.htm

This season premier of "Fast N Loud" airs tonight at 9:00 EST on Discovery.

Thanks for the heads up. I record the show but want to make sure the DVR is set up to still do so.

Thanks for the heads-up!

And finally a new season... if I have to watch them rebuild that F40 one more time, I'm going to drive down there and kick RR in the nuts!

Can't wait to check this out, as I was able to see the COPO build facility in Oxford, Michigan this past summer as part of the CamaroSuperfest show.


email that just came out from Scott Settlemire too:

Good morning, Camaro Comrades, Firebird Friends, and Corvette Cousins!


A message from our good friend, Doctor Jamie Meyer!

Interesting... they were offering their COPO for sale on their website and ebay page last month. (http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Other...#ht_663wt_1182)

BTW, Dennis is Richard's car collector buddy with deep pockets. They most likely went into this one together.

Keep in mind we are still in daylight savings time.


It's listed here at 8PM CDT with a replay at 10:06 PM CDT. That would be 9PM EDT.

In between Is Pure Evel: American Legend about Evel Knievel.

Yeah, I love the show but like I said above (in not so few words)... I'm sick of reruns!

WORD, 5thGO! Love F&L, but I swear, every time I settle in for some good, quality time with the boob tube, there's that freakin' F40 again... and again... and again. Sure, I love me a good ol' F40, but I'm pretty sure that I could build myself one now, just out of wood and glue, from watching so many times.

But tonight, gonna crack me a beer or four, plant ass in couch, and watch that COPO get cool.

The best part of the COPO build............Richards getting his hands greasy and his balls busted by the guys ( the real mechanic's and builders) in his shop as he pretends he's building his new car elsewhere. He's also breaking the GM rule of not wondering around during the build and being reminded by his pal with deep pockets......... who obviously has real skills & cash.
