Looks like its fine in CAM.  I'm not sure the club does the supplemental classes, but it would fit under CAM-S.

Wheels and tires are unlimited so long as the tires are 200 tread wear or greater.  BFG Rival-S and Bridgestone RE-71R have proven to be the best 200 tw tires this year.  I've heard wider sizes are coming, but don't have any details.

I wasn't aware of any ST class for Pony Cars. STX was around a few years ago and was limited to 305 cubic inches.

Yes.  So they bitched and got moved to STU where they could run wider tires and were even more outclassed.

I think the fact that Sam took the CAM Challenge in an F/S car reinforces my opinion. The car is competitive in F/Street, E/Street Prepared,C/Prepared, and will be in ST/P. I think CAM should be just that...CLASSIC American muscle. Anything built after 1995,(or whatever), isn't eligible. Just my .02.
Other then i think 95 is too recent for 'classic', I agree with the rest of this.  Just because muscle cars lag 20 years behind everything else doesn't make them classic.

I don't understand CAM either and I certainly don't understand why they add STP right after adding CAM. They were already plenty of places to run pony cars.

CAM was supposed to bring in pro touring/good guys types and isn't eligible for a jacket.  It might be a fun class to run in right now, but if anyone ever builds a real CAM car things will get out of control quick.

STP makes a lot of sense.  There is a market for people wanting to modify those types of cars that are seen as not competitive in STU.  Lets be honest, while there are stupid things in both the ST and SP ruleset, ST is less stupid and more street able with a pointy in build. 

And to qutoe someone with a better understand of behind the scenes then me:
"But what about CAM? CAM is some random experiment by the national office. If it brings people in from outside our world, great. But between it being unlimited, which the national office has shown no desire to address, and it not being a jacket class, which the SEB will fight tooth and nail against it ever happening, it is not an option for many.
