I will let you know,

He sent me back a note:

To my knowledge, no one is making them. There is one on racejunk right now as part of some kind of bankrupcy auction.

Give some real thought to what you want to do with the car as they are NOT VRA legal to run in sactioned nostalgia races at this time. :wink:

that bites. what ones are legal to run? we were lookin at that car on racingjunk. kinda "iffy" at this point. Lookin at doing a multi purpose car. Run some match races, nostagia races, then be able to switch bodies and few tune-up things and run top alcohol at division level. thats the idea anyways, if it'd even be possible

Here is the VRA rules that if you were planning on running in the sanctioned events you would need to follow.

http://www.nitrofcassociation.com/

The body rules are 1979 and older,,,and if it was run in the day it is ok. It must be approved before you can join the group.

You guys are smart enough to pull off the changing back and forth, but it is 2-entirely different animals you are talking about between a Nitro Funny and an HRA Alky car.

Barb, I would allow it in second as it would add to any show in my opinion. Jay's 57, which is a Goose's style body is very, very nice car. He can't run it. So I know for sure they wouldn't let anyone else run one.

I think Goose's was an exibition only car, not compained as a fuel car also. I may be wrong on that, but I think that is how it was. :?:
