thats possible..............but as it is a NOSTALGIA Superstock class...........it is likely the cutoff dates of 1960-1969 will be in force............
We decided in 2008 to reserve the 1970 models to a future NOSTALGIA Pro Stock class.
When the rules were shaped we were looking for a "typical" Golden age superstocker.....any future changes will likely stick near this parameter. We really do prefer to allow as much latitude as possible within the given framework.... Likely we will publish a list of pre approved bodies, and A racer can petition for any we missed on the list.......petition merely means ask!
What we don't want to see is an Opel Kadett lining up against 1960 Bonneville, or a 1980 Camaro. We think a lot of the fun is recreating the look and feel of the traditional cars. Between The Mead Bros, and others, plus AW/JL bodies plus MEV Bodies, and home casters there is a lot to choose from. I have a pristine 1965 Impala, a 1960 Bonneville, a 1969 442, as well Chevelle, Camaro, Mustang, Fairlane, Galaxie from several years, 1962 and 1961 Impala, Chevy Biscayne, 1960 Pontiac Catalina, 1969 Dodge dart, Chevy II, Dodge 330. Dodge Dart, Plymouth Belvedere, 1969 Barracuda, Pontiac GTO, to to name several off the top oy my head............I think the choices are pretty good....
One factor we think adds to the fun is the great and 'proper' appearance of the competitors. We do listen to input, however!
We will try to get a list of all known bodies available through various outlets ASAP.

John, do you have any that you would like to sell? I'm looking to either buy or build a couple. I don't have any of the older chassis', just the newer aw cars. I also agree with the 60-69 rule, it does offer a great variety of bodies. It would be cool if the revised rules allowed late 60s vettes, imho
