How to make a COPO like camaro

So today i made up my mind it is time to make a car that will go 8.90 all day long, over the next year or so we will make that come to life, first thing to do is find a car to use for this, car cant be more then 3100LB wet, so know what.

Has to have a roll cage and is sold axle, auto for trans, so what do you guys think am i nuts ?, there is a body in white with my name on it, its coming at the start of the year.

I guess you will have to jump into the import scene to achieve that weight and those numbers.

You are going to make a 5th gen that weighs 3100? Or find another car? My pops had a lime green Vega with a 350 back in his day. If you are going to find another car I vote a Chevy II.

To be under 3,100 lbs I'm thinking either fiberglass as much of the body as possible - or lots and lots of carbon fiber
