In the first image in this repost of Jon from Jan. 23rd. 2012, that looks like a Iso Grifo (327 Chevy power) in the show room at the left of the Corvette. Note that the ad copy says, "other high performance vehicles"

Here's a colour chart for '64 Cadi's, they offered a green in "Fire Mist & Fire Frost" through '67 and beyond.

Google Cadi Colour charts for various years, I didn't want to post them all here.

Once again, colour reproduction is not the best, and I'm sure some of these charts are faded.

First happy Thanksgiving day !

Don't want to divert the thread, wondering why the "Green" '67 Camaro changed colours during the '67 season. Later in the year the car is a dark colour with no stripes, I only have B&W pics.

In '68 the car is dark (is it Green ?) with white stripes, Jon had posted a photo of the car at Kent. Is this the '67 car skinned as a '68, side markers, no vent doors ?

I have seen a slot model of the car,  the Sebring '67 colours are reversed.

Not sure about the accuracy of some results on the net, some on "Racing Sports Cars"  I have these, I think Jon might have put them up here somewhere at some point. Not sure about Kent at the bottom of the list, two different events ?

Found this Traco intake and comment on the net.

I'm surprised that Robert (oldtransamdriver) hasn't commented yet ! That's his Camaro, the ex Mo Carter '67 Z on display at a mall, in the post # 315 above by 1109RWHP.

This was at the vintage event, Mosport, Ontario, Canada, June 2017.

First time out for the car, it only did a few laps in one session. I have a couple of other shots of the car, pm me and I can send if interested.

Here's a photo from the Sports Car Graphic Competition Year magazine, from 1968.

The photo is from the 1967 ARRC at Daytona, don't know the driver of the Mustang, but looks to have a Texas map on the tailight panel.

Robert, I would really appreciate it if you come across a "Local Yuk" button grab one for me, and a program from the event. I will gladly pay all costs involved. I live in Canada, east of Toronto.
Have a great Canada Day weekend, and enjoy the event.

Bruce302, thanks for the reply and ID on the above Firebird photo.

Don't want to side track this thread, from the the similar one on Camaros & Firebirds down under.

I noticed that the car has a unusual placement of the marker lights on the front valance and at the sides. is this some thing that was required by Australian and New Zealand rules ?

I noticed that the Coppins Firebird had the same arrangement.

I skimmed through this thread, and the one on New Zealand/Australian Camaros and Firebirds, I may have missed this image, apologies if has been seen before ? if so, or if I'm violating copyright I will remove the post.
Found it somewhere on the net.
Any one know this car ? It could be in England, or down under looking at the cars in the background.

That Clemens Camaro is one good looking car !

A bit off topic here, and I hope I have this straight ? But somewhere on this forum ( I think it was to do with Chaparral Camaros)
It was mentioned that GM provided stampings for the front and rear flares, that had to be riveted on.
This pic I found, might have been here, says this is the build of the Clemens car ? are those the flares ?

Bruce302 & Trans Am, here's another shot of the T/G Firebird in pre season tests at Willow Springs Raceway. Wonder what the purpose of the second person might be in the car ?   (auto week photo)
