I would like to see what a talented painter could do with some of the lesser raced VTA bodies. Maybe one of the upcoming big USVTA races could have a concourse challenge/prize where they showcase one of those bodies.

Like a Parma Cuda body with a "Sanford And Son" paint job?

I think this body would qualify as "lesser raced".

I would like to see an awesome paint scheme on the Parma Cuda

----------

Most raced VTA body of all time would probably be the HPI '68 Camaro. Some of the least raced bodies I've noticed in no particular order are...

Bolink/RJ Speed Camaro & Mustang

Pegasus Cuda (Big Fish) & Camaro SS

Parma 1970 Boss Mustang

I'd run the Pegasus Camaro if I could find one.

Are we ever in the same place? I have one. I think it's still in good condition. It's still in the bag but it's been sliding around in the trunk of my car.

Skillful airbrush work can hide many imperfections - hiding the hideous shape of the Parma 'Cuda would prove to be an insurmountable challenge for even the most talented artist...

This is a Parma Cuda body that I airbrushed a few weeks ago. (Its for sale! PM me if interested.) Everything is paint except the front grill and tail lights. Faskolor Key Lime, chrome silver and black. Windows trimmed in silver chrome. Painted "HEMI" on the rear quarters. The hood intake openings were carefully dremeled out. It is thick lexan. Same as Parma uses on their SCT bodies. A little boxy on the front, but durable.
