I found this statement on the GMPP website:

"Application: NHRA Stock Eliminator/Super Stock, off-highway use only, no VIN"

That's just not right (IMO)!!! That's not how the original COPO's were. GM....please make this STREET-LEGAL just like the original COPO's were!!!

I also found these statements on the GMPP website....talking about the original COPO's:

"Unlike other race-only exotics, a COPO Camaro was a true dual-purpose machine, with the hardware to win at the track and the presence to own the drive-in."

"This order code substituted the transistor ignition-equipped all-aluminum ZL1 427/430 V-8 for the L72 427 V-8 found in COPO 9561, creating the Ultimate Weapon for track or street."

Yep, I agree. If anyone wants to build a TRACK ONLY Drag Car....that's what they have the "Body in White" for. The Body in White is available right now through GMPP.

On the video, they said in order to build this they need to see significant consumer interest in this concept by signing up on the GMPP website. Here's the link....Come on folks, please sign-up so we can make this a reality!!! AND TELL GM TO MAKE IT STREET-LEGAL!!!!

It's all about corporate responsibility. State and local government wouldn't want to have to deal with a potential 800+ HP car running around on city streets just off the dealer's lot. Local law enforcement would have serious acid reflux over it. Too bad, this is going to be a Pony killer out of the box. Imagine what a little tweaking will do!

But the Corvette ZR1 with 638hp is so much safer??? Heck, even the ZL1 has "the potential".

These cars will end up on the street anyways, just as some body in white cars have. It will just be a PITA without a VIN.

There is NO way this is street legal, or will it ever be. If you are looking at this car in the hopes of having a street car, sorry:(

Why a 5.3 though, I'm curious.
It says it uses and lsx block, but then it says its aluminum too.
Also an lsx block has a standard bore of 3.88, which is LS1 size.
Is it a misprint?

Depends on the stroke/crank used...sketchy details @ GMPP.

For NHRA Stock Class purposes, it will be interesting to see what engine combos GM "certifies"...

Problem is to make it street legal, it is going to need to have all the safety equipment. The Cobra Jet weighed 3300 pounds. There is no way we could keep the weight down and still be legal. They MAY be able to get it to like 3800 pounds with all the safety stuff. Also the car has to pass all the emissions, which I do not see happening.
