Oh and just to input myself since I asked the question:

Lexus SC430 (JGTCC)
Ascari KZ1R (FIA Euro GT3)
Ferrari F430 (FIA GT, ALMS, Grand Am, All over the world basically)
Lotus Exige (FIA Euro GT3) (I now HPI did an Elise but that isnt readily available anymore)
Dodge Viper (FIA GT) (Itd be fun to see a new version of the Competition Coupe)

That's my point. We want our lexan bodies to look like race cars. not street cars. There's already a market for lexan bodies that look like street cars.

The A10 or the KZ1R would both be pretty cool WGT bodies.

Well I guess this debate is finally petering out?

I strongly disagree with your opinion regarding the A10. I think it's extemely ugly. I guess a cool paint scheme could help things bit. Ya know, it would definitely destroy the competition though......

I swear, this guy...

Hey Dale, I have a confession to make... I been using your Sophia GT more often now... I like how the body helps me setup my car for when I use your Corette C6-R shell on it. When I switch to your Corvette body, I can nearly keep the throttle pegged and make turns like no tomorrow without even coasting as often.

Now, I am waiting for the Parma body to come in so I can give that body a whirl. Same with the most beautiful McAllister Daytona Prototype body (goddamn that body is gorgeous).

So, Mr. Dale, any new bodies you are working on? How about that new body that has been approved by ROAR but not due until December? Any spy photoes?

Here is what it looks like. I wonder now if wedge bodies will go the way of the dodo bird to be replaced by a body with this design.



As far as the Ascari A10 (Dale Epp's favorite I am assuming...), here it be:



And here is the Noble M15, another car I would love to see:



The Lotus Evora:



And finally, sex on wheels!!!!!!



My vote goes to the sex on wheels. I dunno about you guys.

You want the sex on wheels, also known as the YUGO.

Protoform or Parma should make this shell. then have someone dominate the worlds with the body. oh man, I would buy one of these and paint it pink. Then kick ass with it.

But back on topic: Lister Storm



Marcos:



Gremlin (yes, you read it right):



Chevy Vega Wagon:



Chevy Monza:



Dodge Dart:



And everyone's favorite car (perfect wedge body candidate), The Vector W12:

You gotta admit Dale, that nose-mounted gattling gun would sure make for quick work of clearing out the racing line.

Anything similar in the works at protoform?
