If you read the press article further in depth that was published in Vette Mag, this gentleman is teaming up with various specialty vehicle manufacturers to formulate the car not necessarily in his own production facitlity. Don Yenko was a businessman, but he had his own facility, employees and kids he paid 5 bucks to to "steeker" the cars. That to me is a big difference.

And I will step into the Dynacorn continuation cars arena. To me a newly manufactured 69 replica with a real 427 BB and labled a Yenko continuation car has more appeal and street cred to an old gearhead like me than a 2010 Yenkhennessey clone ever will. I just take issue with the price they are asking for them.

Hm yeah they should keep to the original way they built these, of course these are Yenkos and not COPOs but still i see where you're comin from and i agree...also they said this is supposed to be a supercharged LS engine, seems like they may end up stepping on GM's toes for their idea of the new Z/28 haha (personally i opted for the LS7 over the LSA so id still be happy, LOL)

Yeah i agreed with you more after i saw more of the discussion, lol, but im still all for these new Yenkos, same stuff with new management in my oppinion haha, but yeah i totally agree with the dynacorns and price and all, if a shop started producing brand new 69' Camaros (be it Yenkos or not) at an affordable price (none of this 100k+ crap) not only would it be completely amazing but it would be awsome for business as well, i really hope this new Yenko looks into it, or even someone else as long as their willing to do it right and put the right price on it

I'm just glad American muscle cars are making such a strong comeback. This Yenko looks amazing though, can't wait till one hits the streets.

I hate how people are whoring out names these days just to make a buck. It's not a Yenko and it will never be a Yenko! It's like all these Pretty Boys wearing their "Ed Hardy" clothes. They have no idea who Ed Hardy was or what he stood for. Yenko is rolling over in his grave.

Funny thing is I am heavy tattooed and refuse to wear Ed Hardy clothes. So yeah, I gotta agree to a point. Anytime you glue fake little plastic jewels on a shirt and try and charge $90 for it...its simply not manly.

Now Sailor Jerry vodka on the other hand...thats manly.

I dont understand why you guys are so upset with them bringing back the yenko name. They stuck to the Yenko tradition with super fast amazing looking Chevrolets. If they go out and make a 4 cyl yenko or a Yenko Mustang then there is reason to be ticked. As far as price they should be somewhere around 50k for the Phase 1. (but thats purely speculation)

I agree with this guy, i mean yeah the name was bought but thats no reason to lose all faith in a business (yes believe it or not the real Yenko was a business, Don Yenko was the one who put it on the map but its still just a business) Hell take GM for example if you wanna get that harsh haha, GM isnt even GM anymore, the GM we all know was liquidated and now there's a new company in its place with the same name, some new people, and a new structure, basically the EXACT same thing as this new Yenko deal but people (with more than 2 brain cells) dont go around harassing them about it, why? cause its the saammee company, if the product is the same, the ideals are the same, the name fits, then it is what it is

"If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck then it's probly Yenko!" LOL

The only difference is, you wreck a 30 year old+ classic and you cant just get a new one or have insurance fix it for ya. Also a lot of people put years of work and have childhood memories in them. I agree with what you are getting at but I don't knock someone driving carefully in a 1967 fully restored Camaro..

FYI, the owner of the company who bought the Yenko rights owns an original Yenko Camaro, grew up in Detroit during the muscle car era, and is a muscle car enthusiast...so these could be quite good. Bottom line: if they help sell more Camaros and keep the breed alive then it is a good thing.

That's much better then just the "what its worth" then. Anyway I would rather have fun in a muscle car then just look good in it, so I do agree.
