Get together with Pedders drag kit and leave the car alone.

No cage needed from the factory. No line locks, no trans brake, nada. I could just as easily say take the SS and buy a Pfadt/Pedders track kit, gut the car, add some brembos, wheels, and tires and off you go.

But a lot of people dont want to mess with their cars they just want to drive them.
I hear ya...As much as I love the drags, I gotta say that "Golden Age" is not something that we'll see again... That would be getting back to the check box options from the factory that is just a thing of the past, unfortunately...

I really think the decision was made to not go the street/drag route, or we would have seen it already as a variant of the COPO program...

Like others have mentioned, it's all about the road-coarses these days...

Z/28, ZL-1, 1LE...hell, even the SS to a degree, its all about the track, more so than drags for sure...Just don't see much hope for the 1/4 mile theme to be a big seller...
