I need a list of what guys would like and then I can check with Mike and see what the details would be as far as cost and delivery. ;-)

He also gave me the name of a guy that has had some special runs of 1/8 bodies made and may have some excess inventory he may want to sell! I'll try to get in touch with him and see what he may have available.

I have just recieved a treasure trove of old R/C racing papers and ads from Herb Zieman via Dick Zimmerman (One-Eighth Racers Charter Members) and I will scan the Parma pix of bodies to help with the process.

Wait 'til you see some of this info! ROAR RevUps from 1971-1972!!

I don't think Rick was referring to straight axle vs. dog bones in his comment. I believe when suspension cars like the Associated 500 where run with solid bars in place of the shocks was the point. (Rick-comment???)

You may know where there are "plenty" of those old cars, i don't, i'll bet they are very expensive and parts are either non-existant or very, very expensive. On top of that, they get more valuable all the time, probably not a good choice for most. (Matt Taylor and I, for two, would like any leads you can provide on old pan stuff.)

Our intent is and has been to allow the old "vintage" true pan cars with "solid/straight" rear axles to run with the "modern" pan cars with dog bones and adjustable rear toe, camber etc. but to have fewer restrictions on the Vintage cars, maybe a 5 pound minimum weight instead of 5.5 for example.

I don't believe it is practical to limit the class to obsolete cars with no availibility of parts. And I say this, planning to build and hopefully race a vintage MRP 180 (If i can find one ;-)).

Also, remember these rules are for the Toledo Club first and hopefully would be adopted by the MidWest Series if there is sufficient interest. Although I was involved with the MWS YEARS ago ;-), I have no idea how/who to approach to try to add the pans as a class. I think the Lon's will take care of that.

They are clear,most of the pcitures on the Delta Plasik website are from old SG catalogs. SO you have to understand that the catalogs are 20 years old.
A few of the bodies I have still say SG on them. That being said they do have some little bumps on them here and there,but its not that bad.
I will post pictures when I get a chance.

If you do get Parma to make any old 1/8th scale bodies I will buy 5 to 10 of them.
But this is got to be at least the 10th time I have heard of somebody contacting Parma,Parma sure then Parma never contacts the person again.
SO I am not holding my breath but I will spend the money,I am not blowing up your skirt. I hope Parma comes through.

Thanks for the offer to help with the buy! The E-mail I received sounds promising, I need to get a list of what we want and Mike said he would let us know details.

Matt,
No he said we should tell him what we want and he'll let us know what he can do. I guess maybe he doesn't have a list, just checks when someone asks. thanks for the Parma ads.

LET THE REQUESTS BEGIN!!! (remember there is a 25pc. Minimum of any body
so let's try to agree the best we can ;-))

Ned

Default Vintage Bodies for Pan Cars

Where is the interest in the Vintage Bodies? Does anyone want to see if we can agree on which Parma bodies we would like to order? Twenty five pieces is a lot but we could sell the extras, "bakaguyjean" has said he'd take 5 to 10.

Let me know...
