Yup. No Corvettes on the U.S. Trans Am roster either.

There was, however, a 1969 Mustang that was driven by Dan Gurney.


Minus the headlight covers I think it looks similar to the HPI 69 Mustang RTR-X body ...

The AMC AMX's ran against the corvettes. It was not technically TA, it was a different class. My dad raced an AMX back in those days.

By that logic the Parma shells should be pulled off the list because they arent even close to looking like what they are supposed to be. (Sorry Parma, No offense.)
THANK YOU SIR

I think Myron likes the looks of it. Doesn't mean that he will want it on the official list. I plan on getting one. If Rob doesn't approve it then I will probably drift it.

I am fine either way. When the shell comes out I will buy it. VTA or not. Make a killer USGT shell. Even if it is at disadvantage in airflow.

Rescue do you have VTA racing there in Saskatchewan? Do you have bears? Zombies? We have Zombies. They vote.......

I'm not really inclined to allow the body since it is modeled after a modern rebuild. Even if Parma has less than stellar details on a body, it's not a "pro - touring" redo of a car.
