Let us know ahead of time when the best day for you is and we'll set something up.

I've seen some awesome builds over the years, even got to take part in more than a few... But THIS is some off the charts stuff! Thanks for sharing

Just your aluminum welding bill would put me in the poor house

Thanks everyone. We wanted to push the envelope of a true dual purpose car by keeping it looking and acting like a stock 5th gen Camaro, but allowing for some high performance characteristics.

Once the windows are tinted and when it has the stock rims on you really can't tell anything was done to the SST. Very minor outside cues. The only really noticeable change will be the hood because with the turbos heat extraction becomes very important.

Bruce and I have had lunch a couple time and discussed this build....

Hearing Bruce talk about the car and trying to process the level of effort that goes into a build like this from just listening to him.... It didn't really click..

I mean, you hear him say things like 1400+ HP.. 16 injectors.... one off intake... On demand fuel systems..... And you instantly know this car is something special...

But, OMG.... Seeing it in pictures..... Holy crap man... I've been around cars/show cars/race cars my whole life.... And been around some people with more money than sense who just throw money at a project and call it done...(Speedster is NOT one of them) And I've never seen something like this EVER! There is no piece, system or component in this build that hasn't been thought through.... (two fuel filler ports!!!!!!! )

I can"t Wait to see this thing in person....

Can't wait to see more....

We will not likely see another car with near stock drive-ability merged with this kind of extreme bullet proof performance....

Wow, Thanks for the kind words Chris... I'm speechless.

There are a million different ways to make the Camaro your own and this is just one of many. I just hope that when it all comes together it gives other C5 members some ideas that they too can push the envelope a little with their Camaro.

I am just looking forward to when a bunch of us can go cruising together , then go to a racetrack and let it all hang out - and have some fun with other makes and models of cars...

So...when are you going to get those gauges ??

I don't think words describe exactly what this car is going to be. I know I wouldn't be able to wrap my head around it

Hopefully I can find a way to get to where you're going to be.

So was she originally SOCOM ? CENTCOM ? Now WIFECOMHOME with the ultimate in line item VETO power... You'll just have to classify them as "Toddler Needs" or just say you needed to pick them up for some special ARMS testing...

What are the plans for the rest of the drivetrain? Based on the powerplant descriptions, it would seem it's going to be beefed up . Looks awesome so far!

Yes, but honestly, I wouldn't have a clue what I'm talking about!

I'm learning here. Bruce talked over my head at the Fest, too. I'm really good at nodding and throwing an occasional "Uh huh," in there.
