  • Savannah, GA (1888PressRelease) September 03, 2010 - Demere NeSmith, Dealer Principal of NeSmith Chevrolet Buick GMC in Claxton, Georgia announced today that the dealership's custom division - NeSmith Customs - hosted a successful track run on August 27th at Roebling Road Raceway, 1135 Roebling Road in Bloomingdale, GA. The event included a look under the hood and several high speed demonstrations of the 700 Horsepower NeSmith Storm Camaro LS9.

    The day opened up with a side by comparison of the NeSmith Storm Camaro (700 HP), the Nesmith Nitro Camaro (600 HP) and the NeSmith Torque Camaro (500 HP). At noon, the demonstration began with the Torque Camaro and Storm Camaro on the track with Professional Driver, Patrick Mikell. High-Speed Pass-bys, Acceleration, Braking and Quarter Mile Acceleration Demonstrations took place after.

    "The demonstration was just what we wanted, everyone who attended was able to experience the 700 Horsepower NeSmith Storm Camaro LS9 in all of its glory," said Steve Gordon, Service Sales Director at NeSmith Chevrolet and head of NeSmith Customs, a division of NeSmith Chevrolet and BT Customs, the company's custom truck division.

    "We already knew the power that the car had but to experience it on the track really showed the scope of what the Storm Camaro could do," stated NeSmith.

    The hand-built supercar was totally transformed in partnership with Jen Jac's Restorations, a premier restoration facility and showroom based in Garden City, Georgia. Joey Wigley of Jen Jac's was also on hand at the event. He said, "I'm thrilled to be a part of this event with NeSmith Chevrolet. We've recently partnered with NeSmith and to have an event like this that showcases the work that we will be doing together is great for all of us."

    The NeSmith Storm Camaro is one of only 25 Camaros in the world to feature an LS9 Corvette engine, taking it from 400 horsepower to 700. The additional 300 horsepower called for an upgrade from the standard Brimbo brake to a Baer brake 6-piston system all the way around the car. Along with the extra stopping power the Baer brake system supplied, the car also picked up extra weight reduction. The axels were replaced to accommodate up to 1000 horse power. In order to utilize all the horsepower this vehicle is packing, a Hurst short throw shifter was added to quickly run through the gears. Performance wasn't the only thing upgraded on this car. The exterior received a new custom paint job with added racing stripes, ground effects and the car was lowered. Nesmith Storm Camaro made its debut August 3rd.

    NeSmith Chevrolet in Claxton is one of three "No Hassle" dealerships throughout southeast Georgia. NeSmith Chevrolet is the largest GM Performance Parts Dealer in the world and their expertise in parts has enabled them to add numerous division of the company including BT customs, NeSmith Customs and NeSmith Racing. This project was a natural fit for the dealership enabling the custom's division to transform a vehicle utilizing GM Performance Parts.
