And this one isn't even a Yenko. It's a clone with a repro trim tag.

From B-J in 2006: VIN   124379N701098
Lot #980.1 - This 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Yenko Reproduction is the Goodguys Muscle car of the year. This may be a reproduction, but it is reproduced exactly as Don Yenko would have done in 1969, taking a Camaro SS-350 as a solid rust free base. For over 3 years, the owner and builder went on a NOS Yenko parts hunt, finding correct date coded parts such as motor, transmission, rear-end, factory smog system and radiator. Rarest of all is the stock factory NOS Yenko white stitched interior with dash.

Does anyone inform these people? Such as sending them the link to the last B-J sale?

I did but heard nothing back. I'm sure they know but will say stuff like, believe to be an original or other such nonsense.
