A Visit to "Nickey's of Chicago"

Hello Camaro Lovers,

I had the honor of paying a visit to Nickey’s of Chicago last night and all I can say is WOW! First of all, everyone there was some of nicest folks you could ever meet. Stefano the owner was really accommodating and very much in tune with what they do at Nickey’s. Everything was completely first class. We walked through all the Camaros on the floor and talked about all the different stage kits that Nickey’s is famous for. OMG, I was in heaven. Their Camaros and packages were amazing to put it lightly. I heard an LS3 that you would swear was a big block 427! It really did sound that good… Absolutely the place I will take my 2SS when the time is right. If you guys are looking for a place to do some incredible upgrades to your Camaro, you should give these guys a hard look before you make a final decision.

Finally, if you are looking for a real Yenko, Copos, or maybe a midyear Corvette, Stefano’s cars are perfect and the real deal. Everything is 100% first classYou won’t find a clone at Nickey’s. Bring your wallet :o)

Cheers
Mike / Nashville

After looking at the Black/red Stage III I noticed a Cyber Grey Stage II. Beth originally fired it up for me to demonstrate the exhaust cut outs but later Stefano fired it up for the camera. Below is that video.



I got a little excited and you can hear me giggling in the beginning. What an INCREDIBLE sound.

In the background you can see the RJT which will under go the Fred Gibbs treatment soon. In the far background on the left is the Nickey Stage III Serial #1 on the lift while another yellow one is on the right. (I don't know the Serial # of that one)

What an incredible afternoon.

The drag strip is like sniffing glue, it's cheap, it's a decent buzz, it doesn't last long and they are all the same.
Road racing is like China White Heroin, the buzz is stronger, the high lasts for hours, it's extremely addictive and they are all different.
I can't wait for my next

That is a proprietary cam which we have custom ground for us by Comp Cams.

We do sell the Cam and CNC heads as a package.

Is is the basis for our 600hp Stage II Naturally aspirated Nickey Camaros.

Thanks for all the compliments, glad everyone had fun.

I still crack-up every time I hear T-Bone giggling on that video.

Mike stop by anytime.....we saved a spot for you!
