Dealership employee totals ZL1

UPDATE:

According to conversation in the Camaro5 forum, the owner of the totaled ZL1 has been working with the dealership that was responsible for the crashed muscle car.

The dealership said that the employee shouldn’t have been in the vehicle, and that they weren’t responsible for the crashed car. They tried to give the ZL1 owner another vehicle, but it had more mileage and options that didn’t interest him, and the offer was rejected.

He wanted a new ZL1.

Long story short, General Motors and Berger Chevrolet in Grand Rapids, Michigan, are sending the man a 2013 Camaro ZL1 to be picked up at the dealership in Delaware.

We’re not sure whose insurance company is paying for what, but it looks like everything has been settled … so far.

PowerBlock TV’s MuscleCar pays tribute to the COPO Camaro, starting with a ZL1 427

FRANKLIN, TENN. JANUARY 4, 2013 –

To celebrate the rare, original 427 COPO Camaro, “MuscleCar” is teaming up with aftermarket partners Chevy Performance, Classic Industries, Barrett-Jackson Restoration Systems and others to build a correct-appearing tribute car with subtle upgrades.

The COPO Camaro legend started in 1969 when Chevy dealers, desperate to beat GM’s ban on selling high-performance small cars, discovered he could order Camaros with 427-inch ZL1 aluminum race engines by using GM’s Central Office Production Order form. They were one of the most powerful street-legal cars Detroit ever built, and with only 69 made, extremely rare.

“Forty-four years later, gearheads continue to lust after these cars. This will be MuscleCar’s highest profile project ever so we are dedicating multiple episodes to detailing what it takes for a guy to build one from the ground up,” said RTM executive producer Joe St. Lawrence.

The tribute car will be built around sponsor products such as a limited edition 430 HP 427 Anniversary Edition crate engine from Chevy Performance and authentic GM Restoration parts from Classic Industries, including everything from brake, suspension, cooling system components and sheet metal. The COPO will be painted with the new Barrett-Jackson Restoration System, which features prep, paint and protection products.

The car will also feature an Auto Gear M22 four-speed transmission, a 12-bolt Moser rear end, Lizard Skin insulation, TMI seats, Wheel Vintiques rally wheels and Firestone Wide Oval tires from Coker Tire.

RTM Productions will air the COPO episode of MuscleCar at 10:30 a.m. EST/PST, Feb. 9-10 on Spike TV. Episodes of the COPO also can be streamed for free at www.powerblocktv.com, and include links to the featured parts.
