Thanks man! Although the wheels in my sig pic are Torq-Thrust M's with staggered diameters (18" up front, 20" out back). The Nickey wheel photos are too blurry for me to PS on my Camaro sig or else I would, but they look awesome and I can't wait to see them in person.

Didn't go to Freedom Chevrolet. Their prices always seemed to be up there with all the work. Take, for example, a fully synthetic oil change. Ancira does it for $55 and Freedom charges $80. Call'em...I wanted to go to Freedom since it saves me about 20-25min round trip in driving. But, for $25, it's worth the drive.
Who knows.

I'll try and get used to driving a 400hp sports car before I start doing any upgrades. My 95 Blazer has just shy of 200hp so it'll be a learning experience.

Spend some more time on this site to find out how retarded that statement is.

On topic, suck on this GT500KR! We see your special editions and raise you a nuclear warhead.

The stage 2 Nickey package should be compared to the street legal 605hp Shelby Supersnake. You must first buy and supply your own GT500 and then pay Shelby Automobiles another $30K for modifications similar to those on the Nickey stage 2 Camaro. There is also a 725hp version of the Shelby Supersnake available, which would certainly seem to be equivalent to the Nickey stage 3 package. Count on the Nickey stage 2 package also costing around $30K.

This is the right way to do it. Letting GM cut model and option costs at the same time a nice 3rd party shop to make post production mods for those few that can afford it and want elite power.

Aftermarketing should be one area that grows in this type of economy.

Well if I won the lottery I would get the 700HP. I would just not want them to badge it any differently. Kill some Cobra's that way.

Yes, I do.

I am very much a Camaro Enthusiast, just like the Membership here. I saw John McBride's rendering in a Magazine and thought that he was very close to what we had envisioned, for the New Nickey Camaro.

When He and I first spoke, he knew exactly what we were looking for.

A version of the Corvette Stinger hood was used on some of the very first 1967 Nickey Camaros, which were completed in 1966.

We are very excited to have him as part of our Team. Stay tuned for more cool Artwork from John!

Stephano,

Are you planning other exterior treatments besides the yellow car? That red car above would be killer!!

So you want to compare the performance of a stock GT500 with an uber-modded, aftermarket Camaro? Okay, I concede, the Nickey Camaro wins.

OK I'll bite, how about we see a $79k gt500kr hang with that...

pulley swap and suspension sprinkled with fairey dust with a huge price premium will not keep up with a similarly priced camaro supercar....game over

I agree completely but, for the record, the KR features the same pulley as the regular GT500. It would be no contest. However, why are you even comparing a KR to the Nickey Camaro? Apples to apples, you would need to compare the 725hp Shelby SuperSnake to the 700hp Nickey Stage III.

Don't matter, same result.
