My son has been working on a red 1969 Firebird and he sent me this video.

He was kicking everybodys butt all over the track. Nice car and great driving!

My son just finished building the Firebird this summer and it is all street legal and does not have a roll bar in it.
This was only the seconded time that he had it out to the track and he is very pleased with the way it hooks up and handles down the strip.
He feels that with a little more work he can get it into the 10's. but he needs to put a roll bar in it before he pushes it that far.

That's a quick Firebird for street legal!

That Firebird was really "hooking up" good!

good rear end gears
good hole shouts
good average speed
it brings back old memories of street racing
had a home made roadster with a 350ci 350hp 3 speed and 2.08 rear end
with 10 gallons of gas it weight only 900 lbs - tubed frame
never lost a race
1/4 mile it would do 165+ mph

A roll cage would be a good safety feature. At speed those older cars are not stable. With the kinds of speeds he's getting to a crash would be really bad.
