I know,I know,I know, this is a first gen site however this is something that needs to be checked out.Over on nastyz28 in the camaro collectables section(mostly diecast stuff)somebody has posted a picture of a "72 BM Camaro"With so little known about these cars this has to be looked at.I am trying to document any and all 70 up BM camaros and this one has me stumped.Did Joel make any of this year?I have only seen 3 BM 70-71 cars.I feel that these cars are more expensive than what everybody thinks however I can't prove this because you never see one for sale :cool:

Motion was building cars for USA sales until 1974 then Gov shut him down. He was still building race cars and export cars into early 1990s. I have his old car and his wife's old car that he built. his 87 Monte SS Aero and wife's 89 Mustang GT convertible.

here is a picture of the Monte from a 1988 magazine
Joel called it the Motion Iroc SS Aero Coupe
It was one of the last Chevy Motion cars built at Motion Performance. It had a B&M supercharged 350
with 20lb bottle of nitrous in trunk. Had about 500 hp on the juice.

most Camaro guys won't like his wifes car but she liked Mustang Convertibles and still has one. I thought it was funny that Joel set it up like a 69 Motion Camaro with Motion glass hood (with Motion emblems) side pipes, big wing, and big wheels. Motion sold fiberglass parts for Mustangs and other cars and this car was used in his catolog.

Check out www.yenko.net. (http://www.yenko.net.)
This is the most definitive site on BW, Yenko, COPO, and other dealer/super cars.
I particularly like the historical pics many of the members post.
Also, it is a good place to verify bogus cars currently on the market.
