Nice find.

I would be afraid to take a rare car out for even just a cruise though... very afraid

Take good care of those.

they all look like the same delta cars the more i look at them. The two chassis are orginal Deltas with the other being a Trinity chassis.I've also got a orginal in the bag Delta Tee-shirt.

I do think they're all Deltas, I had a look at the parts and they all look the same except for that lower deck. I could be wrong still.

I'd be hesitant if there's only one, but there's enough bits here to build 4.

Yes, Trinity Super Phaser. I still have the decal sheet that Trinity put out for that car setup. I still have never used Delta iron on patches to make your own t-shirt, lol.

One of the local LHS has a few of them left, I think.
The other open cockpit shell is a Parma Osella. Ahhhhh, the old days.

Thanks OD, I think I recently was at Parma, and got to see a ton of the old molds, like the 962, BMW GTP, the Chevy Beretta GTU and a bunch of others I fondly remember from my youth. It was pretty cool.

Nice! Paul has promised me a tour if I ever get over there, but I'm afraid they'll catch me trying to sneak a couple of those molds out under my jacket

Do you think Parma would start making those bodies again? Would love to run them again.

I dunno. All we can do is petition them to make them, perhaps an e-mail campaign fellow old-schoolers?

OD, I am pretty sure that Paul no longer works for Parma.
