Yours is nowhere near a 70's. You posted the wrong year, yours is a 90's style camero

Ooh, I like it! Nice details- how thick is the lexan in front? I may go with the 69' Stang just based on how good the SS is.

I always liked the Sunoco Camaro Dorsey Schroeder ran in the late 90's. Can't remember the year, but good looking race car.

The Pegasus bodies are really nice but they are very thin. i think the HPI
bodies are the toughest.

They are all thin in the front, all including HPI, Parma and Pegasus. Use Shoe-Goo to reinforce the body, it works.

Well, durability beats looks for me. Guess I'll stay with HPI and hope for a Mach 1.

The Pegasus Mustang Boss is actually pretty good for durability. It's not as complex a front end shape as the camaro or cuda.

I'd go for a '70 sportsroof, It's my favorite Mustang, having had a Boss 302 in the 70's and a '70 plain jane sportsroof from 83 till 04, Yeah, I'll buy a 70 body. Laterz

Thumbs up

Right on...had I the means, I'd have picked up a '69 Boss 302 or '70 Boss 429 while they were still "reasonable" in the late eighties/early nineties. I'm currently working on a '70 Mach 1, so I'd be partial to the '70 if HPI had to release one or the other
