Oh, did that remind me of the Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In show with Judy Carne, the "sock it to me" girl.....

Mike

You be your sweet bippy!

By the way they are now showing the full one hour episodes of Laugh In, in chronological order, on the Decades Channel.  Here in Chicago it airs twice a day.  Once at 5:00pm and a different episode at 8:00pm.  They are currently in the fall of 1970 without many of the original cast like Carne, but it's still funny!

Here is a cool shot of the 1968 or 1969 AMC AMX Pace Car on the pace lap for the Mission Bell 250 Trans Am race at Riverside International Raceway in Riverside, California on September 8, 1968.  I found it on page 69 of the recently published book entitled, "The History of AMC Motorsports" by Bob McClurg.

Found a couple of interesting pictures on the Revs Institute Library web site taken at the Herald Traveler Challenge Trophy Trans Am event held at Bryar Motorsports Park in Loudon, New Hampshire on July 20, 1969.  The first picture shows a row of new 1969 Mach 1 and Shelby Mustangs in the Mustang Corral outside of the Ford tent.  On the Shelby GT350 closest to the photographer you can see a bumper sticker placed on the front quarter panel between the wheel arch and the drivers door that states, "FORD SOCK IT TO EM!"  The funny thing is at the bottom of the second picture you can see a 1968 Camaro Z28 with an altered version of the same Ford produced sticker posted in the rear window that states, "SOCK IT TO FORD."  The clever owner obviously got one of the bumper stickers, cut it in half and stuck it to his window in the altered way, leaving out the "EM!"  Pretty funny!  The only way to see these bumper stickers is to click on to the following links, then click onto the actual picture and use the magnification buttons to zoom in as close as possible.

Check out these fantastic Dana ads that were apparently found in the back of local High School yearbooks from 1967 and 1968.  I love the copy that says, "Dana 427 Camaros....the first sensible solution for the car enthusiast with a Ferrari taste and a Camaro bankroll"

See these and over 1,800 other cool ads here: http://annualmobiles.blogspot.com/search?updated-max=2016-12-28T07:58:00-08:00&max-results=15&start=30&by-date=false   Just scroll down and click on the ad for a larger version.

I found a cool picture on Flickr of the 1967 Ford Galaxie Convertible at the head of the field prior to the start of the 1967 Daytona 24 hour Continental at Daytona International Speedway in Daytona, Florida on February 4, 1967.  Several Trans Am cars participated in this race.  Unfortunately, the picture can not be downloaded so click here to see it: https://www.flickr.com/photos/smuckatelli/32364189416/in/photolist-RiUVXN-RgGN7s-RoyktH-RvM5b5-RoykFX-QeDYao-Rwbvfr-qdkMmo-QKhcnN-R114xm-pE8Fki-Quhk7o-GZKXPF-Qw3nc5-RoyH9N-RsAtgy-G81HU3-RsAucG-Rkr988-RAk5k1-QeYdoN-GZvwBs-Qhtx7t-RsAvzm-RsAwLE-RAxsTh-PVwvDu-FeMMNU-Hzwy5D-Rsyran-GZvwfA-DzMubD-G81GM3-EJE9KM-RrL3R7-HSDuEE-HVAbe8-FuRQge-RfNEUN-C8aA1g-EJsCR1-RrQB4a-QWkxmU-G875yZ-RdQBya-PABED7-R4A6sG-RebtES-QeDYyE-RiVywK

I thought I remembered seeing a color picture of this car that isn't included in this thread.  I checked the Canadian site autocourse.ca and sure enough their is a picture of the car in the paddock for the Molson Trans-Am held at Sanair Internationale, Ste-Pie, Québec on July 30, 1972.  It has the green rear spoiler and the odd font #77 on the door.  Check out all their racing pics throughout the years here: http://www.autocourse.ca/index.php?file=photos.html

John Webber also posted this color shot of the red 1970 Ford Mustang convertible pace car leading the big boys at the Trans Am race held at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, Ohio on June 7, 1970.

I found a cool color picture showing the red 1970 Ford Mustang convertible pace car in front of the under 2.0 liter Trans Am race cars on their pace lap at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, Ohio on June 7, 1970.  It was posted by John Webber on the Historic SCCA Pro Racing Trans-Am Series Fan Group Facebook page.  Additional pictures of the car can be seen in reply #8 on page one of this thread, in reply #82 on page six, and in reply #140 on page ten.

Jon, here are a few pictures of your car at the Marlboro Double 300 Trans Am races at Marlboro Speedway in Upper Marlboro, Maryland on August 13, 1967.  They came from the Revs Digital Library.  Click on the following links to use the magnification tools to enlarge them:

I found a couple of pictures of the 1967 Ford convertible that was used as the pace car for the Marlboro Double 300 Trans Am races at Marlboro Speedway in Upper Marlboro, Maryland.  The first picture shows the car leaving the track as the the big iron gets the green flag on August 13, 1967 while the second picture shows the pace car ahead of a Porsche 911 in the under 2 liter event held the day before.  They came from the Revs Digital Library.  Click on the following links for magnification tools:

It sure seems like the photo is from the ARRC event but that was in November and this photo says it is from September. Might be a mistake on their part.

I was thinking the same thing Jon.  They have been known to get some of their dates wrong.

Cool shot of an AMX racing a couple of Corvettes at Daytona International Speedway during a 1969 SCCA event.  Is this the runoffs?  I found the picture at Getty Images.  See a larger version of the picture here: http://www.gettyimages.com/detail/news-photo/pair-of-chevrolet-corvettes-sandwich-an-amc-javelin-during-news-photo/132706783

I also found a few pictures of the Smokey Yunick 1968 Camaro driven by Bobby Unser at the Paul Revere 250 NASCAR Grand Touring event held at Daytona on July 4, 1968.  The car only completed one lap due to an electrical fire in the engine compartment.  I found these pictures at Getty Images.  Click on the following links to see larger versions:
