Wow, so I am not alone here. Truth be told no telling what all of this really costs us. But you are right we can't take it with us, and a little fun while we are here is a blessing.
I guess once we see to it the wife and kids are taken care of and set, we should enjoy ourselves a little, and horsepower is so much fun!

Ok, guys just got off the phone with Ryan at LPE. He said they are really busy up there, too cool to think there are still a bunch of car nuts like us are pushing the envelope and going for the best in Camaro performance.:burnrubber
He said they have to get two Camaros finished for SEMA, sounds like the Camaro will be the #1 car represented there this year! Will be interesting to see just how many Camaros are going to be out :there this year. He said he is trying to get my baseline dyno sheet to me but it is in a different department so he has to wait for them to get it to them. I will post it up as soon as I get it, he also could'nt promise how many or how often but pictures will be on the way during the build.

Yes, I also heard that the 2010 Camaro will be "in almost every booth" at SEMA.

It is the HOT car to have right now. Will be interesting to see if it is still this popular next year at the show.

The reason I am building a Camaro as opposed to a corvette is the entry price.

35K for the car + 30K upgrades = 1 corvette w/exhaust..

I think a built camaro will be more fun as it is customized and will be unique. I could never bring myself to spend 40K above the price of the 'vette. I wanted to, just could never pull the trigger on the vette upgrades.

Its a little more like, One Corvette Grand Sport 2010 (55K) plus a TT 10K.
You an buy 1LT Corvettes now a days with rebates for 39k. So if that is the case you can get a lot of mods on a Corvette too unless that is a 26k dollar exhaust system...LOL

I have had LPE cars in the past and think they are amazing though. So, I can understand why.

your a little off on the TT price I get the idea though.

Yes, a new Grand Sport and an Exhaust,
or an older Corvette with lots of really cool mods.

I finally paid off my 2005 corvette..
It became my deposit for the Camaro.

I didn't want to start at LPE with a used car...
It was a nice vette too.. I had a lot (8 or 9?) of them.
It was time for something different, and I can use the back seat for the 4 year old. I always liked Camaro's.. My first car was a '67 Z/28. Wish i still had that one.. sigh..!!
My little Kimberly likes daddy's Race Car.
I can hear her little voice now...Go faster daddy! ...faster! .....FASTER!

My own little cheering section at the racetrack!

What do you you mean had? Did you get rid of your LPE vette?

They pull the engine in the main shop, then send the underachiever over to the machine shop for an attitude adjustment. Should exit there as an overachieving bad-a$$ chomping at the bit to eat a few snakes.

If I remember an old article from last years SEMA builds right they pull the engine by droping out from underneath.

Damn, Windy now you have gone a given me the Suspension bug! Pesky thing is gnawing on me day and night. I know damn good and well if I scratch it things are going to get more expensive. I am thinking Pedders as well but I cant find anyone to buy the stuff from. I want to let LPE do the install while its there, any ideas? How about some pics from your trip?
Something about bad ass cars just does something for me, so get us some good pics!
