In dirt racing, what is a metric car, and how does this differentiate from other dirt cars?

Stock cars based on the GM G-Body platform from model years 1978-88, because they used metric fasteners, unlike the chassis that were used for dirt cars before them.

In street stock classes, a Camaro is not a metric car (was not a G-Body car). Most of the Monte Carlos, Regals, etc. are, as they are from that era. Each have their advantages and drawbacks.
