    Last night I watched Richard put together a bada$$ COPO Camaro. Being new to Camaros, I'd never heard of one. That is one fast car. They said it will run mid 8's to 9's from the factory.

    They are GM's new non street legal drag pack. Here are the specs:
    GM Performance COPO Camaro

    If I remember correctly they came with like an 80K + price tag. :eek: :eek:

    The build sheet explains why the car is so fast. Richard put the 427 in the one he built. I wonder if they told him it wasn't street legal?:) :)

    He's just going to flip it anyway. What he doesn't realize is that buyers don't appreciate his crappy stickers all over those cars he's trying to sell.

    Agreed. To put them on that car was just in poor taste. They should remove easily though.

    I saw one of these a couple weeks ago cruising by the blvd, I thought it looked strange with those tires and the cowl hood I remember telling my brother it idled choppy for a modern fuel injected motor.

    He could have some classy adhesive emblems made up for what he makes off those cars. He thinks the celebrity factor of these cars is selling them, people spending that much money have more class than that.

    I am not really a fan of the show. I don't like what he does to cars.

    Like that wrecked Ferrari they bought and rebuilt. Why didnt they brace up the engine bay before they started pulling on the frame. The engine fit when they disassembled it but was near 1/2" off when they went to reassemble. OH, lets just cut the engine mounts off 1/2 million dollar race car and re-weld them! :eek: Thank god his money backer ended up buying the car!

    They cut so many corners, and that's only what they show us on TV. Imagine the crap they pull behind scenes.
