Question Yenko and Berger Camaros?

Since everyone keeps asking about special models I thought I might bring up the Berger and Yenko camaros...Maybe yes?!?!?

Yenko died and shop closed like milk said. Dunno about Berger. Tom Henry might be doing something though, but you need to ask Tag about that...

This is all that remains of Yenko Chevrolet in Canonsburg, PA which really sucks because I work 10 minutes from there and it would have been neat to order one of the new Camaros from Yenko.



Oddly enough they do now own a Honda dealership where I bought my 2004 Grand Prix GTP Comp G. Chevy to Honda...

Kinda wierd....the cars live on as a legend and keep going up in value every year....yet the business that made them went down the gutter. Hell...it oughta be a historic monument that all the Yenko owners would want to buck up together to restore....and then build some new model Yenko's in it!

We have to look for some new dealers from which to buy our custom Camaros. Which dealers are making other custom Chevys?

He is definately getting my money if and when I can save up enough. By the way he needs to give us some more details on what he plans to do once production starts.
and when did he change his name from little weasel? It's kinda confusing.

Yep, used to live in a place called Notingham, which used the Eighty Four, PA post office back in the late 70's which was about 10 miles from Canonsburgh. Used to drive by Yenko all the time. I haven't been back there in a long time but sure wish Yenko was still around to make another bad a$$ Camaro.

thats what they told me. But they are laminating and the berger owners are siging the window sticker, and they are putting a nice chrome Berger emblem on the car like they used to. I think its not cost effective or something.

Berger will be doing something. I just saw a yellow 2SS that the president of Berger is building up. At this point, all I could see, and feel, was that it had black rally stripes painted on (done right..if you close your eyes and run your finger across them they are smooth), had Hurst 6 speed, and 275's up front and 305's out back.

I got a 2002 Corvette roadster from Berger in 2002 and had it modified by Lingenfelter. Had to sell that car this spring as it was extra that I could not carry right now. But thank God for the 2SS...I can now afford a performance built daily driver.

Anyway, the guys at Berger are enthusiasts....they are going to do the new Camaro, and not just for the money....

Hennesey and Lingenfelter are your best bet... forget the dealers, go with a qualified TUNER!

Unfortunately I won't be there but that is where I got my stock 2SS RS from.

Thanks Dick Jacques of Berger!

I think were going to see a Yenko option from the factory the sYc center caps show up in the parts catalog with a picture. There not orderable though, I already tried. I think the General has something up his sleeve in regards to a Yenko.

I've spoken with Matt Berger several times -- they are doing a "Berger" Camaro -- and if you happen to be in Grand Rapids next weekend, there is an all-Chevy Show at the Berger Dealership (Western Michigan Camaro Club is very much involved) -- and you "might just" happen to see something incredible.


......am trying to take Thor over for the day.........

...and John Fitzpatrick will be there.
