Questions??

Does anyone know anything about these car bodies?

The back of the uncut clear body reads 89 T-BIRD MRP 30-1145

That would be MRP.

The red and white body looks to be a Parma Chevy Monte Carlo SS AeroCoupe.

The blue and white car is a Buick Regal, either Parma or BoLink (hard to tell).

It's not really a "pan car" conversion as much as it is an on-road/oval conversion for the buggy. Pan cars usually have the "flat" front suspension (think AE Dynamic Strut or Composite Craft Lynx), not the big buggy springs; and a "live axle" (solid rear axle/direct drive), not a gearbox.

It could be a JG conversion.

Back then there was a company by the name of Raborn Racing that made a chassis very similar to those you have there, they also made the chassis without the slots for dirt oval racing. Conversions were popular for the JRX-T, X-2 etc. Hope that helps.
