Rear discs?

I am considering rear disc brakes for my 85 Monte SS. I like cheap and easy. What is the best route to go staying within those guidelines? Also plan to drag race the car with a 355, big cam, tunnel ram, th350. Any torque converter ideas? Thanks.

Make your own. See my "Project of the Week" to see how I did it on my '36 Willys front end. Use front rotors (~$60 new at parts store or dirt cheap at the junk yard) and cluge together mounts for the calipers.
