Hey Junkie,
Are these cars signed by Matt or anyone from Berger? And SLP got 575 hp out of their 6 speed cars w/charger and 550 out of their autos, is there a reason why Berger only got 550 hp? Also, I wanted to know what you thought about moving the "By Berger" emblem down into the tail pan like the 75th annv. cars? And, what numbers are left? Thanks!

Camaross,

As far as I know, there are not any plans for Matt Berger or anyone else at Berger to sign all of these cars. However, I'm sure Matt would be happy to sign any of them, if asked. The best time to have that done would be at the Annual Berger Chevrolet All Chevy Show. The dates this year are August 27 & 28, 2010.

That 550 HP number is a conservative number. These cars are all tuned to be 100% emissions legal. However, with some very minor changes (headers and a more aggressive tune) they make a lot more than that.

The "by Berger" emblem is on the left edge of the trunk lid to balance out with the SS emblem on the right side of the trunk lid. However, if you look at Berger's different 4th Gen editions (SS, Hot Rod Magazine, ZL-1, Dick Harrell) you would see that the "by Berger" was in different locations, depending on which edition you have.

The best person to tell you which numbers are left would be Dick Jacques at Berger. 616-293-1850 (his cell).

Hey, sorry it took so long for me to get back to you. These cars are not generally signed, but I asked Dick to get mine signed by the brothers. I think 550 is underestimated I have a CAI and etc going on as soon as it gets here, which will be next Tuesday. Oh yeah I dont plan on moving the emblem

Thanks guys, I talked to Dick yesterday for about an hour, he was very helpful. I was looking at the ZL575 form SLP, but after looking at the Berger and having a 2002 already I've decided to get one of the Berger's. I think the heritage is much stronger and will be more valuable in the future.

Haven't decided yet, Probably the silver one or the red with white to match my '02. I think I will move my emblem too, which # and color did you get? And what do you think about the black wheels on the silver? Keep or change to polished?

Junkie, there aren't any "brothers". It's Matt and his Dad, Dale Berger.

Your car looks awesome!

Did you have Pedders do more than what they do on the basic Berger SS package? Pete is a great guy. He lives near Muskegon, MI, about 40 miles from me.

Berger had the Silver one in the National Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals show in Chicago in November. Dick and his wife were there. It had the black center wheels on it. I'm not a fan of black centered wheels (Dick and I go around on that all the time. LOL) But it does look nice matching the stripes and the other black trim on the car. I would go with the polished wheels, like Junkie did, but that just me. The red one with white stripes would be cool as a match to your '02, though, too.

Be sure to post up some pics once you decide and take delivery.

Yea the red and white would be my first choice but it has a sunroof and i like the hardtops, also the silver is a 1 of 1 car. I think you guys are right about the wheels on the silver, it goes with the black stripes and trim but I think it would look better with the fully polished wheels. Dick has sent me a lot of pix and that makes it even harder to choose, this is almost as hard as trying to pick a color to paint your car with.

Junkie, your car is BA I have a picture of the white hardtop one that Dick sent me and the tail pan has only the small section painted, the owner must have wanted it that way, but it still looks nice.

Oops, I thought they were Brothers...my mistake..lol..I had the Pedders springs removed. Matt called me and told me the front springs were binding a bit and that Pedders was going to send some more. I guess there was a delay in shipment or something so I ended up with the Eibachs installed the day before Christmas. The transporter is picking the car up on Monday to bring to me.

Berger use to put GMMG exhaust systems on their cars but GMMG is not going to make an exhaust for the 2010 Camaro, or so I have been told, so what exhaust is going on the Berger Camaro now that GMMG will not make one?

That's correct, it's not a GMMG exhaust like I have on my Berger HRE. It's a custom stainless system built by a local Michigan exhaust fabricator. It sounds awesome, very much like the GMMG, but maybe just a bit louder.
