In honor of GM High-Tech Performance’s 10th Anniversary, the GMHTP staff is planning a supercar shootout to be held at New Jersey’s Englishtown Raceway Park in summer 2005.

We are looking for the fastest, rarest, and nicest examples of EFI GM performance vehicles produced in the last 20 years. Those chosen will spend 1-2 days drag racing and having their vehicles photographed for an upcoming shootout article in GMHTP.

For this particular shootout, we are only looking for production-based vehicles made by GM, or those created in official partnership with GM. In general, if you could check a specific option box when ordering the vehicle, you’re okay. No aftermarket “tuner” cars please.

This is a drag racing event but it is NOT a competition; as such, because of the historical significance of having these rare vehicles together we will only invite owners of STOCK, UNMODIFIED vehicles who are willing and able to thrash them on the dragstrip in front of God, everybody, and our cameras!

Exceptions to “stock”:

Only if original-type air filter is unavailable, aftermarket STOCK LOCATION/SIZE/SHAPE air filters that fit in the factory airbox are acceptable. No cone-type filters or intake systems allowed.

New street-tread tires are acceptable. No slicks or drag radials.

GM-UPGRADED PROMs or ECMs/GM-FLASHED ECMs are acceptable, with emissions/driveability/etc. changes only. NO PERFORMANCE TUNING OR PERFORMANCE CHIPS ARE ALLOWED.
Shifter may be upgraded to an aftermarket unit.



GMHTP is looking for the following vehicles:

C6 Z51
405-HORSE CORVETTE Z06
405-HORSE CORVETTE ZR1
BUICK GNX
LT4 F-BODY
1989 TURBO TRANS AM
SYCLONE/TYPHOON
THIRD/FOURTH GEN FIREHAWKS
WS6/SS LS1 F-BODY
2005 400-HORSE GTO

Additionally, there will be a “wild card” F-body slot open to all third and fourth-gens with any engine. This car could be a factory lightweight, uniquely optioned (example: WS6 Formula, Turbo Trans Am hardtop/cloth seats, etc.) or ? Surprise us—but remember, it has to be stock.

Due to the rarity of the above mentioned vehicles, we may choose multiple examples of some vehicles.

Time is of the essence, so send the following information ASAP via email to

[email protected]


Three digital photos: engine, interior, and exterior

Aloha Rick! If I was stateside, I would definitely be there. I've been dying to get into your mag since it was first published.....Red Cobra, WS6, and SS are some of the first images I can recall.

We need to get an GMHTP shootout in Hawaii!

Aloha, Dave
