CHEVROLET COPO CAMARO BRINGS BACK THE BIG BLOCK FOR 2022



The COPO Camaro returns to the drag strip and its roots with a 572-cubic-inch Big Block V-8

DETROIT – The COPO Camaro returns to the drag strip for 2022 with a newly available 572-cubic-inch engine. The Big Block V-8 channels the spirit of the original 1969 COPO Camaro, a purpose-built drag racer created by dealers using the Central Office Production Order system to equip cars with Chevrolet’s largest V-8.

The COPO 572 uses a cast-iron block with four-bolt main caps, aluminum heads, a forged steel crankshaft, forged steel connecting rods and forged aluminum pistons. Pricing for the COPO Camaro with the 572 starts from $105,500 (excluding tax, title, license, and dealer fees).

The 2022 COPO Camaro is also available with LSX-based Small Block engines –

a supercharged 350-cubic-inch V-8 rated by the NHRA at 580 horsepower and a naturally aspirated 427-cubic-inch V-8 with an NHRA-rated 470 hp. All 2022 COPO Camaros use an ATI Racing Products TH400 three-speed automatic transmission.

Engineered for drag racers, the COPO Camaro is sold as a Chevrolet Performance part and cannot be registered for street use. It competes in NHRA Stock and Super Stock eliminators and comes standard with a carbon fiber hood and wheelie bars. Buyers can customize their cars with options such as a trunk-mounted weight box and parachute.

Owning a COPO Camaro places drag racers in rare company – Chevrolet has built fewer than 700 examples since the program restarted in 2012. In past years, interested customers have entered a lottery to win an allotment for one of 69 cars. Chevrolet will not limit production for 2022, and orders will be filled on a first come, first served basis. Buyers may also participate in a private tour of the COPO Build Facility in Oxford, Michigan, where each car is custom made. The order form for the 2022 Chevrolet COPO Camaro can be found at www.chevrolet.com/performance-parts/copo-camaro.

Work Truck Wednesday Shows One Of The Most Useful Truck Bodies Today






This great truck body is so often called a plumber's body because plumbers love it for all the space it has as well as all the storage compartments for tools, parts, and more. It could just as well be called an electrician's body, or a remodeler's body, or a carpenter's body, or a landscaping body because it can be so useful for a wide variety of contractors. With an inside height of 73" being able to stand up inside is so helpful. The long shelves inside along with the E-track for holding cargo where you want it held. Then all those compartments outside too. No wonder it is so popular. This unit is just slightly over 11' in length.

All this and the body is mounted on the Silverado Medium-Duty 4500 with the legendary Duramax diesel engine mated with the Allison automatic, AC, and so many other features including aluminum wheels! It's a worker and a looker!

These don't last so get it while it's available.

Fleet Truck Friday: Are Smart Cameras Really Smart?


This episode is sponsored by and produced in partnership with GPS Insight 🤝

In this second episode of Fleet Tech That Works, we explore smart cameras and the different types available – the Smart Camera vs. the Real Smart Camera. The Real Smart Camera we take an in-depth look at is the Driveri Smart Camera. 

Investing in dashboard cameras is a big decision, so it’s essential to understand your options before choosing a solution. 

To investigate the capabilities of a real smart camera, we look at how Driveri compares in functionality in three common driving scenarios – Harsh Braking, Missing a Stop Sign, and Scoring Safe Driving Behavior. 

Topics covered: 
- How each camera reacts to inertia or g-force-based events.
- The advantages of A.I. and edge processing in analyzing events in real-time.
- What role Vision vs. Inertia plays in the smart camera battle and the capabilities of real-time coaching to the driver.
- Which camera can detect non-inertial-based events and traffic signs.
- How the Driveri recognizes, scores, and documents safe driving.

If you’re interested in the Driveri Smart Camera, then visit the GPS Insight website to learn more - https://www.gpsinsight.com/solutions/...
