Awesome score and that's for posting the pics!

Trans-Am Camaros / Re: 1968 Bryar Trans-Am photos

Skip Barber raced the car as #56 at Bryar in August '68 with 4-wheel discs but Bridgehampton was earlier in the season by a month and a half and the rear discs were not installed at that time.  The car did not make the race at Bridgehampton but did do some practice laps.  Off the top of my head I am not recalling what may have happened for it to not make the race.

Scott, your continuing efforts with documenting the various pace cars is greatly appreciated.  Thank you!  (and thank you to Mike as well)

Cool cars.  My brother had a white '68 Z with red standard interior, standard grille, and Z21 style trim that was sold new in Marysville, WA just up the highway from Seattle.  It didn't have the vinyl top.   I hope you get lucky and are somehow able to track the car down.  Really sorry to hear the '67 Z got damaged like that.

It would be nice to know what the 6 cylinder weighs.

That's a new one to me. Meant to be used with which heads?

Very sad news. Thanks for sharing.

More likely it is a '67 car that somebody tried to update looks-wise by adding the side marker lights and '68 style grille.

Thanks for posting those, Mike.  Interesting car.  I don't believe those are of the Dick Lang Camaro.  This car has vent windows in the doors and Lang's car began life as a '68 without the vent windows.

Brightened it up a bit.

I have a friend with a 302 block and the serial number is close to yours, but it is not your original one.

I spoke with John Elliott several years back.  I don't think the car has been located.

Such a bummer that Rusty's '67 was destroyed like that.

I had not seen the gas station photo before so many thanks for posting it.  Off the top of my head I thought I heard that there were three Smokey Camaros at Bonneville in '68.

Thanks for posting, Mike.  The Laurie Craig Z has still not been discovered.  It is correct that the car went to Tony Morris (aka Morris Torlay) and I was told about that by Robert Barg some years back.  Where it went after Tony was done racing it is not known.  It's a terrific car and I hope it still survives.
