October 18, 2009
Matt Murphy paid a visit Saturday evening & left for home about 12:30 Sunday.
My time with Matt was beyond words. He has so much information to share.
We talked till way past 2:30 am & all Sunday morning.
Matt signed CETA BB#4, DEI #54 & SS #85 Convert.
In addition he brought some of missing badges & installed them on the CETA car (air box decal, rear bumper GMMG badge, ash tray plaque).
He took time to look at a few things on a couple of other cars. I really enjoyed uncovering the 6 GMMG's & showing Matt.
I can't thank Matt enough for coming all the way from DePere, WI after delivering Derek's Z7D car.
The background information he provided was great & his knowledge of the GMMG Cars is spot on!
FYI: GMMG is is business. After visiting with Matt I now understand why it's so hard to get ahold of him. When he is on the road he just doesn't have e-mail access & when he is with someone he gives 100% attention & does not answer his phone. Yes, there have been changes @ GMMG & a decline like many business BUT Matt is still building great high performance GM Cars.
Again, Matt - A big thanks for taking time out of your busy schedule.
Special Edition Cars from GMMG
In the late 60’s & early 70’s General Motors shipped a few ‘special edition’ cars out the side door of GM because management didn’t want these cars on the street. They were called COPO cars (Central Office Purchase Order). Typically they were ‘427’ stripped down, ‘go-fast’ cars. Companies like Berger; Nickey & Yenko were in the middle & increased the performance on a very limited number of Camaro’s, Chevelle’s & Nova’s.
Today’s ‘SUPER CARS’ come from companies like Rousch, Shelby, Saleen, Berger, Carl Black & others. Much like the COPO, Yenko, Nickey, Berger cars from years past BUT with new ‘state-of-the-art’ technology………. They are very quick, handle spectacular, in general get great gas mileage and have all the creature comforts.
A small company in Marietta, Georgia (GMMG) built a very limited number of special high performance Camaro’s & Trans Ams. The production is so low that they will / are the cars collectors and enthusiasts’ seek out for their collections.
