They do look good... too bad I have to pull teeth to get O/S bodies from my distributor because they can't get 'em from Hershman.

Don,

If you distributor doesn't have them, Hershman is always just a phone call away.

I did. Twice in the last two months. Each time I was told a shipment was on its way to the distributor. The distributor said they hadn't received any since January '08. Then a week or two ago the distributor said they only got a partial order.

The supplier blames the distributor, and the distributer blames the supplier. Meanwhile, I get blamed by my customers for not having them. Aren't "approved" bodies supposed to be readily available to the masses, and not just to a select few raceways?

V/R,

Don

Ahh... Hershman makes his living selling bodies...

I find it difficult to believe that he won't supply distributors, raceways, and individuals with as many bodies as they want.

Why would he pick and choose? Money out of his pocket.

That's between him and the distributor. All I know is I can't get the O/S bodies.

I asked Hershman if I could order directly from him because the distributor hasn't had any O/S bodies for a while, and that I had a SERRA race coming up and needed the bodies. He tells me he 'sent a shipment to the distributor'. So I guess he was saying, 'No, you can't order directly from me, order from the distributor'.

Sorry Noose,

I didn't mean to "hijack" your post.

Great-lookin' bodies. I just hope I can get some. :)

If I were Hershman, I think I'd be making a call to all the distributers making sure they had all they needed! it's only good buisness to communicate with your outlets.

I've heard simular comments from my main dist.

Hope it gets worked out, it's much easier to buy from our dist than to call all over to mfgs! Shipping costs play into it as well.

I really REALLY like the look of the T70 Spyder. Will O/S be issuing new catalogs soon to their distributors so that these bodies can be ordered?

I've wanted to order these and other O/S vintage bodies, but neither the O/S website nor the catalog in my raceway's Eagle listing have up-to-date lists.

I'm in the same boat... Want to order... Look at web sight... RRRIIIGHT... My track owner tries to get an update from his supplier... NOT... He has even tried the part number and a discription... BACK-ORDERED...

We don't know where the snag is... We see them. We want them. We just want the bodies avaliable to us so we can buy them...

In regards to the new bodies listed above in this post... the first step in or before releasing them is to get them approved by IRRA)r) and/or D3. Once that is done, then we notify the dists of their availability. One of the bodies that was submitted had a problem that has now been corrected and this is why we wait for approval before notifying the dists of the new product.

Not all dists are "up to speed" on the retro stuff as far as stocking it in "big" numbers or stocking it at all. It has been getting better of late.

I'd like to thank Ron Hershman for helping me get the Outisight bodies I needed for next weeks SERRA #8 races at 'Slots of Fun'. I sent him a PM on Saturday and he immediately replied saying he would ship them out Monday morning. Can't ask for better that that! :)

Thanks again, Ron.

Ron,

Sonny's Fastlane here says they cannot get the bodies from his dists. I think they buy from Eagle...

Mine finally came in Thursday and are under the paint gun this week!

Ron,

Idea! How about window masks and drivers to fit, too? I have one heck of a time cutting the blue tape to the windows and drivers from trucks and NASCARs look funny. I don't know if the track owner ordered drivers for them or not.

WOW.. That was quick!

I orderd the OS-066 and the 069 bodies. We are trying to start a stamped steel chassis with S16d with a GTP body. I have also built a Retro, JK & falcon 7 & Ti22, and going to bring them all out to see what we can add to our racing. Being from the '60s....RETRO :yes: ...BUT?

THANKS,
PHIL
