-- First of all, I would like to start this announcement off with a BIG “THANK YOU” to all that have signed up to show great support to the Dick Harrell forum. If only we could document the entire sport in this fashion, this site contains information that is a priceless tribute to Dick Harrell, and drag racing history. Keep the posts coming and continue to spread the word about our site to your friends and family.
We, in the Harrell family, are extremely excited to announce the official release of the Dick Harrell Edition Supercar, a 2002 Chevrolet Camaro. The "Dick Harrell Edition Camaro" will be sold exclusively through Berger Chevrolet in Grand Rapids, MI. & built by 1. GMMG, Inc., in Marietta, GA (the original builder of the 2002 Camaro ZL-1 Supercars and many other Dealer built Muscle cars). This exciting project brought together a team of individuals not seen since my Dad's days of racing with Chevrolet and the Chevy dealers he worked so closely with. We are working to recreate, in a production street version, their 2002 2. Woodward Dream Cruise Camaro. Chevrolets one off Supercar. This incredible Camaro houses the new GM Racing Corvette derived C5R 427cu.in. all aluminum race engine, pushing approximately 580HP to the flywheel. Our new Dick Harrell Edition Camaro will feature these very unique body panels that Chevrolet created for their Camaro and the C5R race motor will be available through GMMG, Inc. with approximately 630 HP and will run on pump gas.
We have been working with Scott Settlemire, John Heinricy, Randy Wittine, Kip Wasenko, Matt Berger, and Matt Murphy very closely over the past six months to get this project to this point of releasing it to you, our website members and enthusiasts. Later you will see photos of the prototype car at a GM Design studio in its clay stages, like all GM prototype vehicles go through. We are very excited to finally be able to release this information here first, and look forward to showing you more photos as they become available throughout the production of these Camaros. An official unveiling date is in the works and we are also looking at possibly delivering some of these 30 cars in Kansas City later this summer. Stay tuned for more exciting stuff.
