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.

Jim Smith

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.

Modified models: GMMG

  • GMMG Carl Black BlackBird (2001-2002) (In February of 2001, Carl Black produced the first series of High Performance Pontiac Trans Ams in memory of the late Muscle Car Era. Each Black Bird starts out as a stock Pontiac Trans Am WS6 Ram Air with LS1 5.7 liter V-8 engine, 6-speed manual transmission and Hurst shift linkage. Carl Black´s high performance modifications include a 380 horsepower / 400 ft lb torque engine package, short throw shifter, high flow air box lid, chambered cat back exhaust, front and rear Eibach 1.5" lowering springs, dimpled front and rear disc brake rotors and Torq-Thrust II 17" ARE wheels. The Black Bird appearance package features dual 380 HP hood accent stripes, Black Bird Cloisonné hood and fender badging, Metallic Silver rear lower panel, all new silver face gauges on the instrument panel, nostalgic black shift ball, auto dimming rearview mirror with compass, Mobil 1 oil fill cap and decal, car cover and floormats with embroidered Black Bird logo. There were only 50 380hp Blackbirds produced in 2001. There were only 50 380HP Black Birds produced for 2002.)
  • GMMG Carl Black Anniversary Edition Blackbird (2002) (There were only 17 380HP Anniversary Edition Black Birds produced for 2002. These cars were produced by GMMG for Carl Black Pontiac. These cars were priced around $45,000.)
  • Year One Edition Carl Black Blackbird 380 (2001) (50 Blackbirds were built by GMMG inc. for Carl Black Pontiac in Kennesaw, GA. Out of the 50, only 10 were numbered Year One Restoration editions.)
  • Year One Edition Carl Black Formula 435 (2002) (only 2 ever built. The fist car has been destroyed and this is the only one of its kind. Custom built by GMMG Inc, and used on the HOTROD POWER TOUR 2002)
  • GMMG Collector Edition Firebird prototype (2001) (Packing the appearance of the '02 Collector Edition (with some subtle differences) and the motivation of GM's LS6 Gen-III engine, this pilot vehicle was a proposed Firebird special package commissioned by members of GM's F-car teams and built by GMMG, Inc. This performance-oriented Firebird was based on the ZL-1 Supercar package GMMG was working on for the '02 Camaro. Along with the factory 1LE suspension parts, 18-inch rolling stock and interior upgrades, the heart of the ZL-1 package was the Corvette Z06's LS6 engine, which was swapped in place of the Firebird's V6. A used '98 Firebird V-6 car was purchased from a Texas Honda dealership to serve as the vehicle's base. In the close-yet-different category are the car's wheels and tires. Powder coated black, they look, at first glance, like the black wheels of the '02 Collector Edition. They're actually a quartet of Corvette magnesium 18x9.5-inch rear wheels, mounted on a set of Goodyear Eagle F1 GS-Fiorano 265/40ZR-18 tires. Of course, the Formula-style bodywork emulates the Collector Edition, too, but isn't quite the same. The Formula-based Firebird nose is the biggest difference, but note also the black hardtop. As the '02 production versions of the Collector Edition were Trans Ams, they came either as T-tops or convertibles. The gauges boast "Ram Air 6" insignias, as do badges on the car's front fenders. The "6" designation ties in both with the LS6 engine and the idea of continuing the famed "Ram Air" engine designation of past Poncho performance mills. The car was sprayed with the correct Collector Edition Yellow paint. Original plans called for 35 LS6-powered Formulas like this prototype--one for each year of Firebird production--to be built by GMMG and sold through a select group of Pontiac dealers. Alas, the timing was not right. Ironically, this yellow prototype is resigned to F-car history, perhaps going down as one of the most collectible Collector Editions out there--car number zero of a production run that never left the gates.)
