Hi,

Found this in a big lot on ebay last year, and am just now getting around to posting it. I was pretty sure it was a Shinoda, but it was in worse shape than I thought from the very vague photo.... It was not specifically with a chassis, but of the couple in the lot, this jaildoor seems to match the body best.

What do you all think? Shinoda or Shinnada?

Hi Don,

I think it is a Shinoda, the colour and damage might account for the doubt.

Nice chassis, eh !!??.

Looks in bad order, will you try to restore or is it beyond repair?
As a slot car numpty I don't know the significance of "Shinoda", could someone briefly explain, thanks.

EDIT - some explaination here....LINK Looks like the "Lamprey" to me?

Here is a picture of my Shinoda Lamprey ! Don"s Shinoda body definately has a different front end .
I think chapman may have nailed it - a take on the Corvette . So , which came first, the Corvette
design or the Lamprey ? Both are great ! Zig

Don's Lamprey looks like it was done off the Strike body style ? Humm...

And Zig's looks corvette-ish ? Humm...

I might just retro a Strike into the lamprey and call it a: " Raycati "

Yep, the Shinoda bodies really had style! And Class, and Bazazz! (sorry, musical comedy reference from "Funny Face"...).

Still not sure what I'm going to do with this one... Vac-form bodies are basically impossible to restore in this shape, but I'd kind of hate to put a repro body on it. Maybe just shine it up and leave it like this as a "Cutaway" view...
