blog comments powered by Disqus
| Rick Hendrick, owner of NASCAR team Hendrick Motorsports and chairman of Hendrick Automotive Group, built the engine for his 2012 COPO Camaro at General Motors' Performance Build Center today, as part of Chevrolet's series of customer engine build experiences.
In 2011, Hendrick also took part in Chevrolet's Corvette engine build experience.
'Last year's Corvette engine build was such a memorable experience that I couldn't pass up the opportunity to do it again with a COPO Camaro. As a Chevy enthusiast and collector, it's a real privilege to do something like this,' Hendrick said. 'I want to thank everyone at the Performance Build Center for having me back. It means so much to spend time with people who share my passion for cars and work so hard to produce some of the best engines in the world.'
In addition to the Corvette Engine Build Experience and COPO Engine Build Experience, Chevrolet also has a Crate Engine Build Experience. These engine-building opportunities offer customers the convenience and assurance of purchasing a factory-engineered performance engine with the personal satisfaction of building one's own engine for a project vehicle.
