Default Where's The Bodies?

Hasn't been a new body since the McAllister Mustang. Need a 69' Firebird and a good 70' Camaro. Is anybody out there?

I would settle for a 70 nose and decal sheet to go on the Bandit TA. Or a 70 Camaro Nose and decal sheet to go on the Bandit TA. I guess the tail lights wouldnt work though.

A lot of differences here between the 1978 Firebird and the 1970. Nose, tail light panel, rear bumper, rear window. Too much work to convert. We really need a true 1970 firebird body. The rear window conversion alone is not worth the effort.

I guess I will have to go look at it again. I would be happy to cut the nose off if there was a 70 I could stick on there.

I could go for a Falcon too, and a Cougar.

+1 for the Cougar. A Mercury Cougar would make an excellent addition to the VTA shell selection.

.

There are a handful of other cars that would be good candidates for VTA shells. Take a look at this long list.

instead of HPI making another Mustang, they have 4 on the list...the coupe would have made a great Cougar...I even suggested it when the Coupe was in thought...but oh well

you can paint it up and change some stickers around and maybe nobody will notice

I see. the mustang coupe was a great addition to the line up and a car that definitely deserves to be in the line up. I have run one and it looks great on the track. I also agree that the cougar is severely missed and needs to be represented. Preferably in a 1968 trim. I would love to run one.

Funny side fact.......Ford was going to call the mustang the cougar in the beginning. They actually had a prototype with a cougar in the grill coral instead of the mustang. Can't remember why they changed it.
