I hope it's ok to post this in the drag racing section..How about Jeff Lutz's street legal Camaro that runs 6.05 at 251 mph..Go to dragzine.com to see the video.I've got the same chassis and the body from Shapeways.Maybe one day I'll get around to building the car.

True, but the gas would cost more than the groceries.

Here is another really nice 57.Im gonna guess that the black 57 above,is not street legal.I will admit that the Camaro is a bit odd looking.There are some real nice pro mod bodies,and others that are bizarre looking.

No, nothing like that backbirth. It looked closer to Project X than it does to that thing. 

You can google-image Jeff Lutz '57 Chevy and find lots of pics of it.

Lutz had a '57 Chevy that was street legal (actually 2) called the Evil Twin.  He used it to win Drag Week 2014.  Probably easier to build this as a model, due to the stock body.  Need to create the tube chassis and turbo'd big block.

This is his '57 the way the season ended last year. It's a sharp looking car.

I root for Monza as I prefer his Camaro over the other cars on the show.

I like Monza. Heartbreaking to see his crash last year, especially right after he'd described what the car meant to him and his son. 

I kinda like most of the cars on the show, but have decided that I'm definitely Team Daddy Dave. I like his whole attitude/vibe (he doesn't seem to take the whole thing too seriously), and I really dig his primered early Nova--definitely my favorite car on the show. 

Fun show, but the drama! :blink: Sometimes I feel like I'm watching Real Housewives of Oklahoma Street Racing. :rolleyes:

Are they racing a full quarter mile, or just an eighth?

No way. The gas stations are too far apart!

How 'bout street legal  equipment like working lights, tail lights, turn signals, flashers, inside and outside mirrors, license plates?

Street Legal...well it depends on where you live...there is no way we could get something like these cars through the car safety inspection and drive it on the roads here in Sweden. :rolleyes:
They wouldn't even let the black 57 Chevy through.

Street Legal means exactly that. Is the car you're driving legal for driving in the area you are in or are going to? Driving from New York to California one would have to cross several states and be legal in ALL of those states. It's really pretty simple. Of course there are a LOT of people on the roads today that think the driving laws are for the other people and not them.

Well like I said,it stated that it street legal,but your right,every state,has different laws that allow cars to drive on public roads.But I have seen some local cars near me that are just barely street legal..
