COPO CAMARO

The COPO Camaro is the quickest Camaro ever built by Chevrolet.  Born to dominate in a straight line, this beast is specifically engineered to punish the strip, not to mention the competition.  

COPO is a true racing machine.  It is specifically offered for off-highway, competitive NHRA use only.  It cannot be registered, titled, licensed or driven on public roads or highways.  The COPO Camaro is designed to NHRA racing specifications, including a solid rear axle and full chrome-moly roll cage.  Inside, most of the standard sound deadening and power accessories have been deleted in order to optimize weight for NHRA racing.  Also included:  a pair of racing bucket seats (no rear seat), a safety harness for the driver, a competition floor shifter and Chevrolet Performance gauges.

When the COPO concept was first shown at the 2011 SEMA SHow, the overwhelming response inspired the decision for a limited, special edition production run.  To ensure fair access, an independent third party was used to identify the individuals who would be offered the opportunity to buy one of the new COPO Camaros.  Those selected received confirmation in early 2012, with instructions on how to fulfill the purchase contract, choose the engine option for their intended racing class and take delivery.  Engines were assembled in Wixom, Michigan at the Performance Build Center, where the buyer could opt to participate in the engine assembly.

COPO #7 is owned by long time racer and two time NHRA National Champion, Jim Boburka Sr. Jim has a passion for Chevrolets and currently owns four (now five) Camaros: two 1969 Camaros, one a Stock Eliminator car, the other a show car; the third is a 1992 Camaro; and finally a 2010 Camaro. When the COPO Camaros were introduced in 1969 Jim wanted one, but, being young with a family, the price was out of his reach. Now, years later, Jim is living his dream. COPO #007 is a red NA 427 (57% of the COPOS were sold with the 427 NA). Jim currently runs in NHRA Stock Eliminator races and possibly in the future, Super Stock.
Pictured above is Jim's COPO #7 and him racing the COPO #7 at Four Wide Nationals at Charlotte earlier this year.

The video to the left is actual footage of Jim racing in the US Nationals in Indianapolis in August 2013.

How proud are we as a dealership to have Jim as a member of our management team.  His knowledge, love and passion of vehicles is constantly being demonstrated as he teaches all his technicians what he knows.  We as a dealership and our customers absolutely love him!  It's amazing that a Service Department is run by such a knowledgeable individual.
