Any of you "big time" VTA guys coming to the Indoor Champs near Cleveland this year?

I'm planning on it; it'll be my first "big time" event since running 17.5 Truck on the oval at the Snowbird Nationals back in Oh-Ten.

I don't think Rob would ever declare it legal, but a Dodge Daytona/Plymouth Superbird would be awesome. I know RJ Speed makes one, but it's BIG.

Yep, the 70's, when drugs were cool and safe sex meant her husband was out of town.

A long time ago (approx. 2 yrs) I asked RobK why he wouldn't add the 1967 Corvette Stingray body to the USVTA body list. His answer was very simple, if the car in question is not listed on the Historic Trans Am Race Roster, then it will not be added to the USVTA list of bodies.

This has probably already been discussed, but the 68 Firebird looks like it could be pretty closely duplicated with a separate nose (a la the J71 and 71 Firebird) and some creative taillight decals.
