Just a reminder that the Historic Trans-Am cars will be at the  Toyota Long Beach
Indy Car race event April 13/14.
HTA will practise Friday and have a 20 min. race on Saturday.

I believe it was an ignition problem. Al would know.

Yes, it was all rather amazing how a D sedan Mini driver got to run with the
Big Dogs - many thanks to Big Al and his crew.

Taken at the 71 Michigan International T/A during practice or qualifying. Unfortunately early during the
race, the camaro developed a severe missfire under acceleration that never went away.  Finished the
race way down. in hindsight I should have parked it and saved wear and tear on the car.

I am still looking for the slim young driver.

What did Kent Fellows do with this car after he bought it?  Official T/A results show him
T/A racing with Warren Agor, but not till 72 - doesn't say what year camaro.

Is this car still alive somewhere in vintage racing?

Trans-Am Camaros / Re: Trans Am racing pace car pics...are there any?

I remember this race - started 21st along side Carl Shafer. 
By this time, the old 67 camaro was tired and the throttle linkage
broke in the middle of the race.  I managed to get back to the
pits and the crew fixed it, but I probably lost 4 or 5 laps - did
manage to finish 17th.  I think 36 cars started the race.

Even though the factories were gone, 17,000 fans still showed up for this race.

Sadly, there was only one more race for us at Watkins Glen where the engine died
during the race.  It was a sad ending for a tough old car and it was later sold to a
local stock car racer.

Myself and co-driver Rick Stevens, seated on trailer fender.  We had done the 68 T/A at the Glen.
Car is loaded on trailer and ready to head to 69 Sebring 12 hr.  Owner Al Richards towed it down from
Weston ON with a Cadillac sedan.  Rick and I drove separately to Sebring (more adventures for both
of us).  Al had several flats with the trailer on the way down.
Not sure where this pic was taken - by Al's house? Rick had previously raced in the 67 Sebring T/A
4 hr. and the 67 St.Jovite 4 hr. sedan race with his 1293 Mini. He later raced a variety of cars and also
drove in 2 Daytona 24 hr. races in an RX7.  Was also Holland NY mini stock champion at one time.

We also teamed up for 3 IMSA Camel GT races in 72 with the ex Alfie Ruys de Perez 69 camaro T/A
car - 3 3rd places in the 5 litre touring class - 1 3 hr and 2 6 hr races.
