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.

I sure hope so. I wouldn't want to be in his shoes. The Yenko name is so legendary I'd be afraid to take this on. More power to him. I hope he sells 100k of them!

See i was pretty shocked when people started talking this down, i mean dont forget that CARS company is reproducing official 69' Yenko Camaros out of Dynacorn bodies and people didnt knock on them nearly as much...this just kinda took me by surprise haha

As for my other discussion, i mean i can understand if you have a car with unique historical significance (like the very first Z/28 ever made or something) but just a 69' SS Chevelle or somethin, i mean come on even if its in good condition drive that mofo! LOL...actually this reminds me of an interesting story i just learned about, the ZL1 69' Corvettes, apparently there are three known to exist today, two are in collections and never driven at all and one is actually still used by a racer as a circuit race car (engine was swapped with another 427 to protect the originality) but still, there's one of the rarest muscle cars out there and its being raced on a circuit haha, more power to him!

this to me is a way to steal some of the roush fans. with stage one mostly appearance but some performance stage two is better and stage three is the one you want but cant afford well at least most of us. and yenko isnt selling out gm and who ever needed a good name for people to trust and not mind spending more money than doing the upgrades themselves. still wouldnt mind having one tho

True Dat!!

If I had the money I'd buy a Yenko Continuation car from CARS because it is as close as you could come to an exact replica of the REAL thing before I'd spend 80k on yet another 2010 TVS 2300 blower car. I just wish they weren't 130k, but there is a lot of handwork in those cars that the 69's didn't have and I realize why perhaps they cost that much

wow...continuation Yenkos are okay but Yenko Yenkos are just trademark rip offs, LOL, i think ive heard everything xD

I do agree with the blower thing though, im tired of this supercharging craze, i much preffer n/a cars, id like to see an LS7 Yenko, it'd be much more appealing to me and itd be an amazing shout out to the originals
