Actually no I just got these bodies in the store where I work today and noticed they looked a lot like the old Bolink bodies. I didn't even notice the part numbers. Hard to see them on a phone.

Yes I run the 68 camaro. Maybe if it looks like a Bolink car and the numbers are the same it is!Mainly because RJSpeed is Rick Jordan- he bought all the old Molds back.I ran one at the nationals 2 weeks ago.And I've been running in our state series along with another guy.

thats ironic, I recognized them instantly due to the years I worked in retail hobbies (and racing constantly) back when those things were new ! that reminds me, I have a few vintage road bodies in a box somewhere....

We have a Hoosier Tire dealer right here in Brownsburg, IN where I live. They supply many oval track racers and other racing groups as well. They are always quick to help out the Scouts and the local Chamber as well with events and sponsorships. They gave me the "Hoosier Tire" sponsor decals and I thought they looked perfect on the Corvette. The wing is so that I can race this body in USGT if I want to someday. Its made for the Corvette body, so it matches the rear radius.

Going to take the finished car (TC3 Chassis BTW) to them today to show them the finished product. I'm sure they will like it. Have you ever noticed the "H" on the HPI tires is a match for the "H" in Hoosier Tire?

Hi guys,
love the bodies, there is something about the old race team colors that bring character on the race track. Here are my latest bodies, although the only track time they saw was the 1/4 mile!!

All logo's were done by me on decal paper in reverse on the inside of the body. I can post the artwork if you want also.

Too cool, Mickey! But the Ramcharger needs some crazy headers and an altered wheelbase. LOL! Looks good, man...

Ahh, that's ok. Always next time !

Would love to see someone do a decent , race quality HK Monaro , XA and XY GTHO and maybe a Torana of some sort. The Monaro would do me just fine though .....
