2002 Berger SS
45 cars – Numbered PR-3 #57 – #00
How many 2002 Berger SS cars came directly from GMMG with the Phase 2 package?
Answer from Andrew McCall………….. March 27, 2017
There was one 2001 – Hugger Orange
NINE 2002’s –
SIX were painted custom colors – Daytona Yellow – Hugger Orange – Ralley Green – Lemans Blue – Electron Blue – Chrome Illusion (#72 Johnny Benson)
THREE were factory colors – 2 Artic White & 1 NBM
2002 Berger SS
Six Code 41U (black) were painted —
Daytona Yellow (#00) – Rallye Green (#60) – Hugger Orange (#100 Convert)
LeMans Blue (#59) – Corvette Electron Blue (#93) – Chrome Illusion (#72 for Johnny Benson)
The final 43 (of 100) Berger SS’s were built in 2002.
One white T-Top prototype (# PR-3) was built in 2002
One black T-Top (#00 – Matt Berger’s) was painted Daytona Yellow to commemorate the 100 total.
SS #73 (Pewter) – TH #26 (NBM) -PE #15 – BY #56 & more
Way cool! – A spectacular collection! Thanks Bob
…from the ‘Jim Smith Collection’
‘Johnny Benson’ (Chrome Illusion) #72 SS
#72 was built for Johnny & is very special.
#74 SS (SOM) was converted to a 1969 Camaro Convert
It was sold @ 2010 Barrett-Jackson – Scottsdale for $52,800 (including commission)
My thoughts….. I liked the car but don’t understand why #74 Berger SS was used when a regular Camaro would have worked.
I was unable to ask the builder this question when in Scottsdale.
Just my thoughts on this very nicely re-done SS. Jim Smith
December 14, 2012 –
I have removed the photo of Berger SS #80 because of the nasty e-mails I have been receiving. He got upset over a car I bought that he didn’t put money down on.
I’d suggest staying away from ‘camarosss’. He’s had issues & run ins with a number of GMMG owners, bad rapped Matt Murphy on other sites & now it’s my turn. Gotta love the colorful use of the English language. Check out the history on the GMMG Forum…………..

I think I’ve given you enough time to call me and I know your the person
that purchased the GMMG PE today from Everette Chevrolet. I just wanted you
to know that me and another salesman (Heath McPherson) has been working on
me purchasing this car since yesterday (I WAS FIRST IN LINE!) and I was
leaving the bank with the check this evening when he called to tell me the
car was sold. I’m just an average Joe that wants one of these cars and not
some rich prick that just throws his money around like you. Do us all a
favor and fall off the face of the earth. Thanks for fucking my up my
holiday and I hope the fucking car burns to the ground. The next time you
see one of these cars for sale Back The Fuck Off and give someone else a
chance to own one because I know the ones that you have will never be bought
because they are all OVER PRICED. JACKASS!!!!!
December 17, 2012 – I’ve received more e-mails & this just goes on & on. Beware if you have any dealings with this guy. (‘camarosss’ on LS1 Tech)
‘Lol now you’re just flat out lying to people just like half the info on your cheesy website.’
Keep sending e-mails & I’ll just keep posting them so everyone can see who you really are. People like you give the hobby a bad name.
Dec. 29th – More e-mails & threats …….. They don’t work with me………might as well find someone else to bother. ………….
Photo was removed long ago & this isn’t the only site he is banned from.
He’s been in trouble before………….
Search LS1 Tech for ‘camarosss’ & see for yourself.

Stay far away from camarosss (Wayne Holland)
I made a deal with Wayne Holland (camarosss) on the phone on 1-27-11 for me to purchase an 02 Tahoe from him. I was to fly to Atlanta, GA from OKC, Oklahoma on 2-5-11 to pick up the vehicle. He promptly responded to all my texts and calls all the way through 2-2-11. On 2-4-11 I tried to touch base with him to make the final arrangements for him to pick me up on the 5th in Atlanta. He hasn’t responded to any texts or calls. So he cost me almost $500 in airline, hotel, 2 Carfax reports because he gave me the wrong VIN the first time, and finance charges for the loan to buy the vehicle. Dude couldn’t even find the nerve to just tell me he either sold it out from under me or just decided to keep it. He also told me the vehicle had never been wrecked and he was the only owner. He told me this twice, once in a text and once on the phone. That was a LIE. The Carfax showed that the vehicle had in fact been wrecked on 3-1-03 and had a 2nd owner on 10-22-09.
Here is where he has it for sale on Craigslist. http://atlanta.craigslist.org/atl/cto/2138732830.html
I guess he decided to delete the post here since he flaked out on our deal on Tech.
I have all the text messages between us and the carfax reports to backup anything that has been posted here.
Not cool Wayne, not cool.

63 SS – Jim Smith
#72 Johnny Benson Edition Chrome Illusion car.
It’s a pretty neat car with some additional stuff Berger did for JB not typical on other Berger cars.
Most people don’t realize but the stripes on this car are painted, not decals.
Instead of the “435hp” in the hood stripes, it was custom masked off with a design that reads “JB”.
Just a neat fact I thought you would find interesting. ………….from Jason
