    Never heard of a "Snake Skinner" offered by Chevy/GM. Must be a dealer mod car, kind of like Yenko and the like. Good luck with your new ride.

    I've never heard of it, but I presume itís similar to the Yenko Camaros etc.. Thatís it a dealers added the parts to make it special, otherwise according to GM its just a Camaro SS.

    Curious as to where this car is located (no I'M not interested in buying it)

    Back in '95 Morrison Motorsports in Albany, Ga took a Corvette, reworked the motor, added an appearance package to make it aerodynamically functional and called it the "Snake Skinner" It was basically designed and built to compete agaisnt Vipers, hence the moniker "Snake Skinner"
    They also added the Snake Skinner logo on the rear.

    Just wondering if they did something similiar to this Camaro you are referring to

    Why would you even compare a Yenko to a Camaro with the sticker Snake Skinner on it. Yenko Camaros were a lot more that special stripes.

    We're not comparing saying they are the same just used it as example that it could be dealer installed package and not a package from GM.

    I'm no genious, but I think there would be a difference. If the dealer did it all, its different than a Yenko I believe. Yenkos were COPO (Central Office Production Order), which would be different since the Yenkos came with the big motor and such from the factory. Only thing the dealer did to them was the appearance and such I believe. I'm not 100% on that though...

    well then the yenko would be a sticker car..meaning the yenko part that is..they were COPO..all yenko did was add some decals, stripes and a special wing...and call it good.
