we were talking about a specific price point.....but at $72k the supersnake fits into the arguement well...i just thought the $80k gt500kr was worth mentioning.

Here's a hint..."The Camaro suspension is the most sophisticated design in a production car offered by GM. Our initial evaluation is that this is the best suspension system we have seen from GM and will be a game changing event in the automotive world. "

There's also the story of how they were comparing the Mustang to the 5th gen...It was so far behind in every test, eventually no one wanted to drive the Mustang. Add as much HP as you want, if you can't use it, well...you know.

Pricing has not yet been finalized.

What I can say with confidence is that we have every intent to make the Nickey Camaro Super Car, a Great Value.

I know that I can't wait, to have a heads-up shoot-out and let the Nickey Camaro speak for itself!

On another topic; the 300 plus hp V6 up to the 430hp V8 will be Awesome platforms. I can still remember my excitement over the fourth Generation Camaro, as well as my first drive in one. Those Z28s had 275hp.

You can do all of this stuff to your own car with more power for less money, especially if you are willing to get your hands dirty. The only way I could even see this car being worth it is if it had a bumper to bumper warranty.

Thats really cool. I live in Winfield which is only a few miles away from St. Charles. Sad to say, I've never heard Nickey Chevrolet but it sounds like a great setup.

Jeez, that thing is 'effin amazing. By any chance, do you guys carry those wheels in 20" to accommodate the new Camaro NOW or will you make them when the car comes out? I've been wanting Torq-Thrust II's for mine as you can see in my sig but your Nickey wheels are even better and are more in sync with what I was going for. The TTII's were kind of a 'settling for this' thing.

The wheels are currently not yet available. We do plan to have the Torque Thrust Style 5 spoke wheels available as an option.

We also plan to provide other wheel options for the Nickey Camaro.

We also plan to make the Wheels available over the counter, from our parts dept.
