every part of the car is changed so i think they don't care about the model, just the fact that it's a manual and the frame is good.

If you are talking about the JGTC car, it can't really be classified like that. They are all tube frame purpose built race cars.

NO JGTC cars have to start w/ factory chassis and get full cages added - they are NOT tube frame cars - iirc the have to retain stock floor, roof and (maybe) door panels, as well as stock suspension pick up points.

They are not tube frame but they do not need stock floor or suspension pick up points. Wane Gardener's old GT500 supra has horizontally mounted pushrod suspension, F1 style front and rear as do many of the other cars.

The "Pick Up Points" refered to are the points the suspension arms connect to the chassis - the shape and stye of the suspension arms can be altered as can the spring & shock locations - making pull or push rod suspensions possible w/o changing the pick up points. This is my understanding of the rules as described in an article describing JGTC cars (in Sport Compact Car irrc) I read a while ago, though my memory may be faulty or the article may have been in error (not uncommon for SCC) or both

As far as I know, the rules & regulations have been changed to allow tube framed cars.

From the JGTC news section:

Some of the biggest changes from previous years' regulations are in relation to chassis structure and layout. The new rules the car to be built utilizing a pipe-framed structure. Ahead of the front bulkhead and behind the rear bulkhead, the main frame can cut away and replaced by steel-tube framing. If the pipe-framed structure is adopted, the regulations require the chassis to be equipped with an impact absorbing structure for driver safety. As shown in the accompanying illustration, the front and rear ends of the NSX, which were originally aluminum framing, have been cut away and a steel-tube sub-frame substituted. Essentially, the introduction of pipe-frame rules has virtually opened the door to new suspension design, which had been prohibited to the point of maintaining original type and operating principles until last season.
