Trans-Am Camaros / Re: Firebird and the Trans-Am series

This is a photo I recently found on the internet. Not sure who took it (possibly from Revs Digital Library?), but thought it would be neat to share it here. Capturing the Titus/Ward Firebird at Daytona 1969 where it placed an incredible 3rd outright in the 24 Hour race, behind a pair of Lola T70 MkIII's.

Thanks Jon, I've got so much enjoyment from this forum and learned so much from all your great material that I wanted to make a small contribution.

Nice little line-up here of some historic New Zealand racing sedans, including the newly restored Cambridge cigarettes Holden Monaro, Halliday brothers Ford Escort, Rod Coppins Firebird, and Joe Chamberlain/Dennis Marwood Camaro.

Wow this sounds like a really cool car Alex. Do you have any photos you could post here?

Will you be racing the car?

Steve, I'm glad you enjoyed those but they are the last ones I have of that car. The 70's were definitely not kind to most of these cars as the decade wore on.

Regarding Joe Chamberlain's old car, I have seen Z/28 emblems installed in a bunch of different places on a Camaro but the location seen in the photo above is a new one on me. I can't say I'm a fan.

Lets be honest Jon, it was a pretty ugly car by the time this photo was taken. When it first appeared in New Zealand in late 1970 it was very pretty, and well presented. But the more relaxed NZ rules, allowing wider wheels and heavily flared fenders meant it soon morphed into what you see here. This would have been taken in late 1973 or early '74.

Wow, another stunning image of the Titus/Ward Firebird. Thank you Jon. This car had a very aggressive look about it. Understandably it looked quite untidy in its presentation at Kent, but of course that was to be expected given the not insignificant task of converting it from Camaro to Firebird sheet metal and painting it. But it was a very purposeful and fast looking car from every angle.

And it did prove to be a very fast car.

Neat photo. Thanks Jon.
