I know a guy with a 65 vette that is street legal and he has run high 7's but i do know it was under 8. That was in St.Louis at Gatway raceway. Then he drove it home. It is an unbelievable car. He has the roll cage and beefed up suspencion and all the goodies.He's got like 5 different motors he can put in depending on how he wants to run.

There are many different definitions of "street legal," depending on who you ask. Some say that a license plate is all you need, others would require pump gas, DOT tires, and no nitrous (illegal to use on the street). Without some specific criteria to go on, this question is virtually impossible to answer.

That's insane. I've never seen it, does he run on slick tire test and tune nights?

i don't know what you consider street legal, but every summer they have a "King of columbus street legal drags" at national trail raceway and i've seen a seven second vette and many 8 second mustangs and older camaros. Its probably the same vette you guys are referring to. The turbo on that car was insane.

Hey TOMMYV8 the vette i'm refering to belongs to Bill Weckman from Granite City. It's a yellow 65vette. His car was titled "The Fastest Street Legal Corvette" in the country at one Time. It is one bad machine.

I must agree with the statement that it really does depend on what ones definition of street legal is. It is a very broad subject.
