Default US Muscle bodies?

Can anyone point me in the direction of some decent US muscle car bodies for a 200mm 1/10 car?

I've already got HPI's 69 camaro and GT350, but needed a 3rd and 4th for my new drifters.

I was really hoping to keep the old-school theme happening, but all I could find was 'Perma' who's kits don't seemed that detailed and they are expensive to ship to Aus.

Any other places to look or am I stuck with what I've already found?

Cheers

HPI are bringing out a 200mm Hemi Cuda on the Nitro 3 chassis:



Not sure about any more though.

Ya I love the ol' muscle cars bodies too. Unless there is some odd ball makers out there Parma and HPI are the only two that make some that I've found. I've even sat back and e-mailed them asking to produce more styles. I myself would love to see alot more. Where are the older american gas sucking beasts of the past? Like chevelles,gto's,older vettes,mustangs,etc,etc. I guess there maybe isn't a high demand for them since alot of the hobbiests in rc are younger?!?!?! I think its awsome your using older bodies for your drifters, because after all there where the orig. driftin' bad boys of the past. LOTS of HP + POSI = FUN

When people say 'muscle car' most of us assume that you mean the classics like the Hemi Cuda, 60's Camaros and Mustangs, etc., but in case you are open to modern muscle cars, here are some:

Corvette C6: http://www.hpi-europe.com/piw.php?lang=en&partNo=17503
Mustang GT-R: http://www.hpi-europe.com/piw.php?lang=en&partNo=17504
Ford GT: http://www.hpi-europe.com/piw.php?lang=en&partNo=7495
Camaro SS: http://www.hpi-europe.com/piw.php?lang=en&partNo=7460
The Viper, of course: http://www.hpi-europe.com/piw.php?lang=en&partNo=7473 (this is the 2nd gen.)

THanks for the info guys. I was really chasing the old school cars more so than the modern ones.

Thanks for the heads up on Bolink Sheetmetal2, their bodies don't look to detailed on their site, but I've sent them an email about bigger pics and shipping to Aus.

EDIT: When is that Cuda due for release?
