Reminds me of the hugged orange 69 camaro convertible that runs around in Orlando and races with the top down during the world street nationals and he runs in the 8 or 9's.

This^^^

You're all crazy a convertible copo is about as useful as tits on a boar hog. The only thing good about this one is the 4 liter whipple and the IOM (The IOM is damn sweet though). But seriously a convertible drag car that isnt street legal? color me

Edit: Holy crap its also automatic. Guess we are bracket racing this one... though it is a 3 speed auto...

They are all automatic's.
But this one is the only one with the turbo 400 3 speed.

People keep forgetting the true purpose of these cars.
They are factory built Drag Racers.
With the roll cage in them, the convertible is just as legal as the coupes for the classes they run in.

Pretty good chance, this one and only convertible will never see a track though, and will be scooped up by some rich collector.

There are no sanctioned drag racing rules that state you must have a top on your car.

It's caged, it's legal for racing.

honestly though I would feel safer with a roof over my head on the strip...even if it is perfectly OK to drag.

Because GM has realized just how much of a cash cow this platform is... It doesn't even have to make sense and people will step all over each other to own one... It's like the Apple i-Anything of the car world.

I guess I never thought about feeling safe, it's for the daredevil I guess.

I ride motorcycles. Do I feel safe when I'm riding them...yes? Will I get hurt if I wreck, most likely?
