Reminds me of the "Dazzle" camo used on ships during WWII.

That would be shocking. It only ran two races in 1973 when Trans-Am was already on the decline. And... if it were legal for VTA, then you could make the case that the Pantera should be legal too.

I hope it's not the VTA body that Protoform is planning since it likely wouldn't be legal.....nor would I want it to be. I like that the current rules restrict the bodies to muscle car/pony car body styles.

Hey gang, thought I'd share my VTA project. I haven't had the car long, I'm hoping to be able to get a few other people together so we can run a VTA class at my LHS.

The decals on my car were done by CSelis and I can't say enough good things about both the quality of his product and customer service.
