NHRA Heritage Series.....Reserved for pre-1980 American bodies

Good- Guys ....The rules are structured around existing VRA/NHRA Heritage Series rules.: Bodies limited to years 1967-1979 (no exceptions, no mutated bodies)

I remember a few years back that the 79 Omni/Charger and the 79 Datsun were the only 1979 year bodies you could not used in the GG/heritage series/NFCA.

Didn't Densham run a 240 or 260Z body at some point?
If I remember right,it looked pretty racey/slippery but didn't work so well and got burned up.

If I'm not mistaken, Densham, Grose, Mandoline, and Moats all ran Datsuns.
Bill Reichman has, or had, a Datsun for a while. It was up for sale but I don't know if it got sold.

Donnie Franz ran a Datsun in the MFCA for a while. I believe it was the same body Reichman used. I think it was the Grim Reaper before he had it.

Etchells second F/C body was a Datsun. I believe, if it was the same body it had four different paint jobs on it. If anyone gives a shit.
