I just re-read the rules, I didn't see "must be licensed and insured" the first time through. Oh well I don't have TW200 tires for the C3 anyway.

this looks like the class for me. I don't like a lot of rules. "Run what you brung" is my kind of class. I do it for fun anyway.

Here is the information I found on the subject.
There are a few of us in the greater Charlotte area that plan on taking our C2's & C3's out to give it a shot.....

 CAM - Appendix BAPPENDIX B - CLASSIC AMERICAN MUSCLE (CAM)
Rationale: The purpose of CAM is to attract automobile enthusiasts to SCCA who are currently interested in and/or participating in the Goodguys® Autocross events or other similar events for "classic" vehicles (e.g., Street Machine, Muscle Car, Hot Rod, Truck, Street Car, Late Model, etc.) built in North America by manufacturers based in the US (e.g., "The Big Three" – GM, Ford, and Chrysler). These avid enthusiasts would largely be a new and different group of folks to join with us as SCCA® members and participants.
However, many of these types of cars may not have a favorable classification at their local SCCA® Solo® events. By having a simple, single set of rules used across the country, these new autocross enthusiasts would be able to participate in multiple Regional Solo® events with a more consistent experience. Additionally, this gives SCCA and the Solo® Events Board an opportunity to see the viability of this type of participation at all levels of Solo® events. Therefore, Regions are encouraged to offer this program and to encourage Classic American Muscle car enthusiasts to join the fun at your SCCA Solo events!
Eligible Vehicles
1.Vehicle must be considered a "street legal" (lights, wipers, etc.),
3.US-domestic automobile of front-engine/RWD configuration or a "pick-up" truck. Must be licensed and insured.
Vehicle must pass the mandatory safety inspection (tech) and be in compliance with Section 3, Vehicles, of the 2014 SCCA® National Solo® Rules.
Vehicles must weigh 3000 pounds or more.
5. Body
1.All body panels must be present in the original standard locations
3.and may be modified or replaced. Exc
1.eption: High-Boys (1954 and earlier), Roadsters (1954 and earlier), and Trucks (1940 and earlier) are not required to have fenders or hood sides.
All glass must be present. Side glass components may be replaced by Lexan®.
Interior must be finished and have minimum seating for two adults.
The fuel tank/cell must be separated from the driver/passenger compartment by a metal panel/bulkhead. The fuel tank/cell shall not vent into the driver/passenger compartment.
8. Wheels and Tires
1.Any metallic wheels are allowed. Non-metallic wheels must be

3.certified from an appropriate, recognized standards organization (e.g., FIA, SFI, SAE, TUV, etc.).
Only DOT-approved tires with a UTQG Treadwear Grade of 200 or more are permitted.
5. draft a Appendix B - CAM2013 SCCA® National Solo® Rules— 281
Body Electrical System
1.Electrical components and wiring are unrestricted.
3. Brake System
1.Brake system and components are unrestricted.
3. Suspension and Steering
1.Suspension and steering components are unrestricted. Method of attachment is unrestricted.
3. Engine and Drive Train
1.Engine, drive train, and associated components (internal and external) are unrestricted.
3. Classing Options, based on local demand:
1.A single CAM class for vehicles meeting the above requirements.
Two classes (CAM-A and CAM-B) split on a model year (e.g., pre-1973 and 1973-on or pre-1983 and 1983-on).
Two classes based on body style; muscle car and/or hot rod (alternate minimum weights may be considered).
Other methods of subdividing based on local CAM enthusiast requests.

While the class would be wide open to someone who can spend huge $$$ and have a C2 or C3 with LS power, C5 or Bosh ABS, and any tranny/diff you can imagine; it could be alot more fun than trying to run a C3 in X Prepared on the local or divisional level.

It will be interesting to see how a well prepared '34 Ford kit car with modern suspension and power would get up to 3000 lbs! My old C3 NCCC Group III R/P car wasn't near that.

Gotta get off my butt and get a car running though. This being on the sidelines for three years is a bummer!

Chris, loved seeing your Dad's car at Bowling Green.
