Yeah, everything he does is a reproduction. He has several versions of the old Andy's GTP bodies.

I was looking thru TBG bodies and I saw that they now have the AE GTP Jaguar which I believe to be the Group 44 Jag.

I have been looking for this body a while now.

To do that it's the same as all the other vintage on road bodies. Get a new, uncut original and send it to TBG. Once he has made the pattern he will send you back 3 repros from it as payment.

Speaking about bodies...

I just found some old pics of my Parma Panther.
I remember them... and I was sure the body to be a Parma-Lancia LC1

Durign the years I found a Parma Lancia and plan was to make a repro of the real car....

But.... look at the picture. Is a Lancia Lc1.. but who make it??? Is way more real than the Parma one...

I must have at least 10 or more old 235mm pan car bodies I've collected over the years, all uncut and unpainted. I would love to get extra's. I will have to contact him and get these back on the market. I will have to see what I have and make a list.

This is the second old pan car I've seen with a rear sway-bar. What was the purpose of the sway-bar? What did it do that the T-bar wasn't doing?

Not all t-plate cars had tweak screws so the t-bar would just pivot without a sway bar.

T bar was on pivot balls and there wasn't side springs or tweak screws like in later designs some early t bar cars like delta had no pivot balls t bar was mounted solid to main chassis only seperated by washer from the main chassis plate to allow it to flex

Interesting, so it's basically doing the job of side springs for side-to-side resistance and tweak adjustments. I guess there is more slop in that arrangement than a side-spring set-up would have, otherwise I could see it working on a modern pivot ball car.

One of my favourite pan car set-ups was the one used on the Tamiya F102 and Group C cars. It's similar to what you describe. T-bar connected to the chassis (essentially) but there is an o-ring instead of a washer in there. Tightening the screw that went through the T-bar and the o-ring would put more pressure on the o-ring and reduce side-to-side movement. I always enjoyed tuning my car with nothing more than a Phillip's head screw-driver in under 5 minutes.

Between Indy, GTP, Can Am and Nascar I'm sure I have over 30 with wide and narrow editions.
