Yes, I know the Wild Card Camaro’s are not GMMG’s but they are still cool.
Neither are the 5th Gen. COPO Camaro’s, Wild Cars Camaro’s & TA’s, Clones-Tribute-Fakes, Garages, License Plates but this is all interesting.
Information on this page has ben provided by others.
I don’t claim to know about many of these cars.
If you have info to add or corrections, please let me know.
Who built this car? GMMG or someone else?
Sonoco Racing Camaro #6
September 26, 2010 update from Anthoiny………….
I apologize for my long absense. I was just googling Callaway Camaros, and I came across the page again.
I really enjoy the site, and I was looking at all of the rare Camaros you have on there.
I did see a small discrepancy in the addition from Brandon though. He is correct in many aspects, and probably knows more about the cars than anybody I have spoken with about them.
He is however, mistaken on a few accounts:
The years that I mentioned about the cars is actually the production year of the Camaro, and not the year the work was done by Callaway as Brandon suggested. Some of those were built as new cars, and some were older cars converted after the model year of the car (1994 model year cars were converted in 1996- I included them all).
2 1993 cars were built as prototypes in 1993. The silver Aerobody picture car that arrived in October 1993, and the 1993 Pace Car engine development car that arrived in June 1993. Two more 1993 cars were built in February and March of 1994, however, Callaway was trying to introduce the cars as new for the 1994 model year. It would have been difficult to showcase a “New” model at the 1994 Auto Show, and then publicise 1993 cars running around.
In August of 1994, Callaway built one more 93 Camaro, and in June 95, another one was built. It had about 14,000 miles at the time.
In March of 97, the last 1993 Callaway Camaro was built. It had 46,000 miles at the time of delivery.
There was 1 1997 Callaway Camaro built. It was an AeroBody Only car. Callaway were focusing on the new LS series of engines and phasing out the LT based SuperNatural engine packages. (See correction below)
The Aerobody-only cars that were not built by Callaway are not tracked by Callaway, as Brandon correctly mentions. The difficult part to understand is that Callaway tracked every car they worked on, and some had neither the engine, NOR the body! They were later upgraded with either bodies, engines, or both.
My black Aerobody-Only 1995 is a very significant car, because it was the only non-supernatural 383 engined car to ever get the C8 badge- which was only applied to cars with the body AND engine. It instead had a supercharger, and Callaway figured that the increased power was enough to earn it a badge.
Callaway built and tracked only 4 Aerobody-only cars- 2 94s, my 95, and the only 97 built.
I hope this helps, although I realize that it is too confusing to post on the site. Instead, I was just writing to inform you, in case you would like to doccument the Callaway C8 and Camaro details for your site.

He also built Charley Lilliard’s ‘Jack-Ass’ – 3rd @ 2009 Optima Street Challenge.
I met Charley on the Power Tour & at SEMA a few times with this car. (Jack-Ass)
It’s amazing & one of the baddest Camaro’s ever built by Mark Stielow.

Callaway built AeroBody only cars, SuperNatural 400 engine only cars, and C8s, which were Camaros that had both the CamAeroBody and the Supernatural 383ci 404hp LT1.
I currently have 5 C8s, and 2 stock bodied SuperNatural 400 Camaros.
1994-1996 Callaway Camaro and C8 production:
1994 C8 – 6 cars total – 4 coupe/2 convertible
1994 CamAeroBody only – 2 cars, both coupes
1994 SuperNatural 400 – 5 cars – 4 coupe/1 convertible
1995 C8 – 6 cars total – 4 coupe/2 convertible
1995 CamAeroBody only – 1 coupe
1995 SuperNatural 400 – 7 cars – 5 coupe/2 convertible
1996 C8 – 3 cars total – all coupes
1996 CamAeroBody only – 0
1996 SuperNatural 400 – 6 cars – 5 coupe/1 convertible
Here are a few of my cars.
The red 1994 AeroBody Callaway C8 is the very first Callaway C8 built. It is doccumented as serial number 001
It has the SuperNatural 400hp 383ci stroked LT1, CamAeroBody, Brembo F40 Brakes, BridgeStone Callaway Runflat wheels and tires, Stainless 1 3/4″ headers and full exhaust, Callaway Suspension, Callaway prototype 001 Valve Covers, Rosewood interior accents, and Callaway 6 Speed shift knob.

It has the SuperNatural 450hp 383ci stroked LT1, CamAeroBody, Brembo F40 Brakes, OZ Monte Carlo 17×9.5 wheels, Stainless 1 3/4″ headers and full exhaust, Callaway Suspension, Callaway Valve Covers, Callaway Roll Bar, and Callaway Full Leather interior.

It has the SuperNatural 450hp 383ci stroked LT1, CamAeroBody, Brembo F40 Brakes, OZ Monte Carlo 17×9.5 wheels, Stainless 1 3/4″ headers and full exhaust, Callaway Suspension, Callaway Valve Covers, and Callaway Full Leather interior.
The Red 1995 AeroBody Callaway C8 is one of 4 C8 1995 coupes. It is the only Berger/Callaway car ever built. It was ordered by Dennis Barker at Berger in Grand Rapids.

The Black 1995 AeroBody Callaway C8 was the only doccumented AeroBody only Camaro, however, the SuperNatural 400 engine was installed later. It was also the only PoloGreen C8 (it is being repainted in its original color currently)
It has the SuperNatural 450hp 383ci stroked LT1, CamAeroBody, BridgeStone Callaway Runflat 17×9.5 wheels and tires, Stainless 1 3/4″ headers and full exhaust, Callaway Suspension, Callaway Valve Covers, and Callaway Roll Bar.

It is the only Automatic Transmission 1996 Callaway Camaro built.
I have very nice pictures of most of the cars if you would more of them. I also hope to own a GMMG car in the future, as I think they were marketed and featured much more than the Callaways were.
Brandon is the expert on Callaway Camaro’s.
Contact him for info.
I know very little about these cars. Jim
*Note: I’ve copied a gentleman named Brandon Brown who I believe was
also involved in the correspondence to which I’m referring as
“Brangeta”, as he might be interested as well.
I’ve enjoyed your website and like to browse it from time to
time. It’s nice to see a shared appreciation of American Muscle Cars!
However, I did notice some information I believe is wrong. On your
“Wild Card Camaro’s” page there is a correspondence between you and a
Mr. Anthony Kalil. In this correspondence Anthony makes the claim
that only one 1997 Callaway Super Natural Camaro was built, and that
it was an Aero Body only build. I know for a fact that I have a 1997
Callaway Super Natural Camaro shipped to Callaway brand new for the
SuperNatural 400 engine-only build. I have the documentation for this
and thought you and Mr. Kalil, being car guys/collectors might be
interested to know. From what Mr. Kalil says, my car is a 1 of 1,
and it wouldn’t be too difficult to have Callaway install the aero
body package, which would apparently make it the only C8 of 1997.
It isn’t in mint condition, but I don’t think it would take much
to get it close as you can see from the photos. Anyway, I just
thought you guys might be interested and I would appreciate it if you
passed my information on to Mr. Kalil. If either of you are
interested in buying it, or know anyone that is, please let me know.
Thanks for keeping up a very cool website and enjoy the photos!
P.S. The photos are packaged in one PDF file, which seems to be the
easiest way to share multiple photos with a manageable file size.
Also feel free to use the photos for whatever you’d like — I can send
original jpegs if necessary.
