What year of bodies are you looking for? The 70s camaro ( like Jr. Hanley)...the bubble fender style... the Wedge style? here is Big Donkey site for the Hanley Camaro style ( you have to go to the last few pages for them).. you can get wheels and tire from him too... http://www.bigdonkeyresin.com/big_donkey_web_site_012.htm  (click on link) Larry is a GREAT guy to work with and he ships right Away. 

PPP (Pastic Performance Products) makes tires and wheels for these also...you can find them here at Model Roundup( Jack is another GREAT guy to buy from).....

You can fab your own chassis from an ASA, or Nascar kit. Using the engine from them also. Are you building a specific car and Driver? If so...you might have to go to a decal maker who will take that challenge on.  Gary Wayne of GWS Custom Decals does a GREAT job with custom orders. Here's his email  gws.decals@verizon.net   I hope this helps you a little Murphy...

Thanks for the great info Gary..The old Camaro's and wedge cars are what I was looking to do but also would like to try some newer ones as well. So the ASA or NASCAR wheelbases will fit these bodies? Also how does this work with the drivers compartment since the cages are offset to the left on Late models. Does this require scratch building the drivers cage? Again thanks for the links

http://www.randyayersmodeling.com/modelingforum/   If you scroll part way down the forum page until you get to Non-Nascar, you will see a link to Road Racers, Modifieds, Late Models.  Click on to that link and one of the members - Gator - Jacki Sims molds several different dirt and asphalt 1/25 late model bodies which I have purchased many bodies from him for various projects. Very reasonable and a great guy. 

Here's a copy of Jacki's link...  http://public.fotki.com/gator-gallery/
