Body In White Camaro bodies are ready to start shipping

GM Performance Parts announced the availability of a "Body in White" program at the Performance Racing Industry Show in Orlando.

That program would give hard core racers the ability to purchase bare 2010 Camaro bodies for all out race cars.

Well I am happy to announce that the bodies are starting to hit the GM Performance Parts Warehouse. Back orders will start to ship this week!

Those who have ordered bodies should be contacted by their GM Performance Parts dealer.

If you haven't ordered yours for next season now is the time to contact your dealer.

I know the number of BIW Camaros that have been ordered. I am excited to these things in the hands of some of the most talented chassis builders.

You will also notice in the picture some of the GM Performance Parts crate engines at the warehouse. Mountains of crate engines!!!!!

Robin

So I guess you have to buy the fascias on top of the BIW, then? Am I reading that right?

Pretty cool. Think of this. If you totalled your newCamaro. You could order a replacement body. Then, Rebuild. I've done this before only the bodies were from the wrecking yard.

This is incorrect - not just anyone can order the bodies and they are for offroad racing use only. You need to apply for purchase and only get to purchase if you are approved.

On another note - could this be a sign that they are starting to catch up on production of the ordered cars?

I realize that these bodies are only for racing. But it would be a good idea to buy like 3 or 4 and put them in a warehouse, then in 20-30 years when people are restoring theirs you could either sell them as a complete new body or part them out, and cut panels off them.

Exactly, I have a picture from a different angle that I cannot show. There is a glow in the section where the LS9 crates are stored. An armed guard stands watch over them in a seperate secure area.

There are a lot of engines in that facility.

And I am just kidding about the LS9's

Lol, here we go...



The pics posted above are, in fact, of said secure facility. It is armed by 4 invisible ninjas 24/7, working separate shifts. As a safeguard, the warehouse is equipped with IR sensors that can set off toxic gas or an EMP for non-biological intruders. The IR sensors also serve as a real-time obstacle course for the ninjas, keeping them in shape. A blast door made of pure platinum 3 feet thick locks in all who are inside if the alarm is tripped. Yes, the ninjas are prepared to die for the LS9s.

Great.. now I'm gonna have to call Harrison Ford out of retirement. Nobody tell Lucas or Spielberg about this.. they'll just screw it up and the Russians will end up with LS9s in their Ladas.

Robin -

I would like to stay with the IRS the Camaro has, but without a third party stepping up, I think it just isn't feasible, but damn I'd love to use it.

Has GMPP said anything about mounts for a solid axle for the BIW ?
Do you know of any third parties working on HD parts for the IRS ?

I am hoping items become available in the next 3 months.

Thanks Robin.
