Third-gen 1992 Camaro Gets Converted into Wicked Race Car
LS-powered Camaro found in the LS1 Tech Marketplace even meets NHRA safety standards to run in the 6s.
If you have been looking to get into a Chevrolet Camaro drag car that would allow you to run with some of the quickest cars at your local track, you are in luck. LS1 Tech forum member helicoil recently posted a 1992 Camaro Z28 drag car in the LS1 Tech Marketplace and it looks like the perfect third-gen race car, whether you are looking to go turnkey or provide your own drivetrain.
In addition to including a big spread of pictures of the 1992 Z28 race car being offered for sale, he shared a fairly detailed description of the car. He included images of the car with two different engines, but the carbed LS is the engine included in the deal.

In other words, everything has been done right with this 1992 Camaro Z28 in converting it to a wicked race car and the results are impressive.

Drivetrain or Nah?
If you are looking for a crazy-quick turnkey race car, this Camaro could be it, but the OP is willing to sell it without the 675 horsepower, 403 cubic-inch LS engine. He points out that in roller form, it comes with the items needed to install a big block Chevy V8 (above) or an LS engine (below), along with a set of headers for $46,000 while the turnkey setup is $57,500. Seems like a stellar dealer, either way, to us.
