Anybody know of anyone still casting this Dirtcar Camaro body? A late 70-Early 80's Camaro, Want to build a few local legends cars from Smokey Mountain Speedway here in TN
I think Freds Resin did but seems like he is out of business due to health. Hs site has been closed for months with no hint of hope of opening back up...

I could use a few of those myself....I need one right now to build a car driven by the late Buck Simmons. I heard Fred was still casting stuff for a few of his close friends. Good luck, let me know if you find a source.

@ Roadhawg- Hope this helps you out as well-

I met a gentleman whose screen name is "Gator" over on Randy Ayers' NASCAR Model Forum who produces Vacume Formed from Polystyrene Sheet. His work comes highly recomended and look VERY nice. His prices are more then reasonable. You can look him up and contact him thru that forum.

Not sure how different working with one of these bodies is as opposed to a resin. Looking at his pictures it appears like they will be a little more clean up around the windows and wheel openings then some resin bodies I have got in past but then again his prices are better.

I havent ever had a vacumn formed body before but I figure I will place an order in the next week or so and give it a whirl. From what I understand Fred's Resin is still closed due to health issues and he is the only other I found that produce this Camaro body. Big Donkey produces wheel, old coupes and such but no bodys like this.
