 I am looking to put new tires on my 92 formula 5.7. It came with 245ZR50 Gatorbacks, Good year Z rated 50's are now special order at $290 each. So I figured I would ask club what their thoughts on tires were?

I own a tire and wheel shop in Southeast Texas. You didn't really specify what you're looking to get out of these tires.

Those Gatorbacks have a UTQG rating of 220 ... which is a pretty soft composition that will be super sticky but not last very long. If you're looking for longevity, that's not going to cut it. If you're looking for grip only, it's probably perfect.

If you can get me some more info, I'm sure I can help you out here and possibly also give you some insight on average pricing on your final decision.
