Sorry for the worst possiable photo. Something is wrong with my camera/phone.

The plan is to TQ the GT class and thus get the pan cars kicked out of the GT class forever.
Who makes this body?

You guys need to make up your minds. Your Dad just said that "For the record, I also agree, with a heat of pans cars racing each other, the CanAm body is the way to go."

With 4 to 6 cars I figured we'd run modern High Downforce bodies!!!!!









Yes I have a gt body (an overpriced Italian Import ) and another surprize body that looks pretty good (not the paint, the body)).

Those of you who knew Les Haddad might get a kick out of this:

The only motor that was really usable in cars was the Veco .19, mostly because of the dual ball bearing construction while most of the other engines just had bushings. The west coast boys were putting McCoy .19 liners, pistons, and rings (!) in the Veco case (Veco-McCoy!) I couldn't understand it at the time but Les absolutely would not get any conversion kits in the shop!

I ended up getting the parts from him for the stock McCoy and machining them myself to make the conversion. What I had done was introduced the hotter motor into Toledo, we started going to Parma and getting the kits and other hop-ups from Kenny McDowell, Klunk and I later begged two K&B .21's from K&B at the Toledo show and so it went. It surely had would have happened sooner or later, but Les could see the end result....
Ned. Les from Hobby Stop fame???

Joe I don't know how much my dad plans on running a pan car but in total there are three in our camp. We have two younger racers we are trying to work into the program and if I can keep up with running two cars I might run the pan car the rest of this year for fun. I wouldn't mess with the 4wd car. It only adds cost and its still going to bounce all over the place.

Those cars on ebay are neat, especially the Dynamic. flipping through the photos of the AE car, the sidewall on one of the tires reads BP, looks just like the BP Engines logo. I wonder if it is the same company as today.

Actually I've got a dynamic kicking around somewhere - traded a guy a 300 for it in the early 80's
