The guy designed the northstar engine for cadillac and helped GM and Mobil to merge for a corvette raciong team that is still going. Then guy has the legal rights to the snake skinner name, there were only 4 built in 1998, and a few more the next year, most of the cars or in private collections for the sake of it might be something like a yenko or nickey. The kid that got it doesn't know what he's got he could care less about the camaro since he got a brand new hayabusa and needs somethign to haul it around so i'm taking advantage of it. your in seattle, i guess i could call my car mister hyde and get some plates that say that.
    He didn't design the northstar engine. It was patterned after the LT5 in ZR1 corvettes which were designed by lotus engineers.

    The guy may have done this or that but those cars are nothing but modified camaros with stickers. I seriously doubt any of them are sitting in any collection nor are they comparable to berger or even intimidator SS. Those are collectible and worth good $$$. You are getting a deal on this one because it is not.

    that is all berger is a modified camaro with some sticker that say BERGER, there is no diffrence, just because you haven't heard of one doesn't mean its nothing or not worth nothing. And what about the granatelli motorsports camros they built in 2001 with just suspension mods only three of them, they have a small article in CHP about that, its no diffrent.

    Mr. Morrison’s current partnership, with banker and racing-car developer Warren Mosler has resulted in the MT900. In 2000, NMAH appointed him to its Development Advisory Committee for America on the Move. In 1997, Mr. Morrison responded to the Smithsonian's request and donated one of his ZR-l racing Corvettes. The car thus became the first sports car collected by the Smithsonian. Mr. Morrison's engine development work led to the improvement of synthetic oils marketed by Mobil and also led to the development of GM's "Northstar" engine, used in today's Cadillacs. In the mid-1980s, he brought General Motors and Mobil together to create the Mobil I Corvette Racing Team. For 10 years, Morrison's Mobil I Corvettes and Camaros dominated endurance racing in the United States for production-based cars. For the Albany Realty Co., Mr. Morrison innovated the use of U.S. Geological Survey data on specific conditions of soil and water to match buyers with land best suited for timber or various crops. One sale - for 13,000 acres to Container Corporation of America - provided capital to begin his own commercial real estate firm, and also led to a relationship with Mobil Corporation, which owned CCA. Mr. Morrison resides in Albany, GA.

    The thing you seem to be missing here is the berger camaro is a sought after collecter car and this is not. All the dribble you post on here is not going to change that. Are they just modded camaros with badges yes but people are willing to a pay premium for them that is the difference. I hope you like the car and enjoy it but all the research and stories are not going to make it more valuable.

    Look...The guy's got a Hero in Mr. Morrison. Fine, we all need a Hero. I hope he enjoy's the car as much as I've enjoyed mine for all the years I've had it, as we all do wish him well. He's showing respect to all the members while making his point. I've got no prob with the newbie. Go in peace my friend and enjoy your new ride. I'm personally looking forward to my new Cyber Grey 2009 Z06!

    If you pay for the shipping in an enclosed trailer, I'll pay cash for the full amount. How soon can we close the deal?

Only thing the dealer did to them was the appearance and such I believe. I'm not 100% on that though...
    The yenkos had the infamous zl-1 all aluminum big block motor hardly sticker.

    Ok Mr. Knowitall...Nowhere did I say they were just sticker cars.

    I actually said something to the contrary, not to mention the Yenko didn't come with the ZL1...That would be the (dumdumdum) ZL1 Camaro. Only made in 69, only made 69.
