Here's Ben and I at the Bristol race in 2010.  We shot some photos for Charlie Lingenfelter at the track.

Hoosiers, 9 x 30's.  That's all we;re allowed in Stock Eliminator.  Here's my new race car back in the day at 75-80 Drayway.  About 1972-73.

Yes, but it was not a Jenkins Strickler car.  They were into a new L78 Camaro that B. Jenkins drove and Strickler was driving a funnycar style Corvette in 1967.

I think I have just figured out that Bryan's original photo was taken at Indy, the U.S. Nationals which Ben wound up winning.  Note the shoe polish on the front windshield matches perfecly to the photo in the winner's circle, September 1967.  Jenkins won the NHRA Super Stock Eliminator at this event too.

I got this shot at the 2014 U.S. Nationals for the class win.

Here's another shot from Bristol, 2004.

Bryan, Ben doesn't remember that event.  Especially Indy Winder Nationals.  There would be sonw there at that time of the year.  He won the Indy in '67 so I have to wonder if this was taken at the U.S. Nationals when he won?  Here's a photo that I shot with Ben and my Strickler Z28 at the 2004 Bristol national event.  We pitted together and this is the first year he debuted the new original lettering on the car.  Very cool.

The other cool part of the story is Ben had told me about his tow car, a matching Tahoe turquoise 396 Impala convertible.  He's never been able to come up with a photo of that car but you have unknowingly supplied a color photo of his '67 Z28 and the 396 Impala.  Very cool.  I'm going to call him now.
8  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Burgundy '69 Z28 For Sale, Ebay on: January 29, 2015, 03:15:25 PM
Just a note to the group.  Seller on Ebay selling '69 Z28 stating car has its original number's matching engine.  I have confirmed for a client that it does not.  Here's a photos for all to see.  All of the characters for an 09C late build Z28 engine are incorrect.  The vin stamped numbers are not even close.  Just an FYI, buyer's beware.
9  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / 1967 Z28 tires Now Available on: July 15, 2014, 12:26:21 PM
Attention all 1967 Z28 owners.  After 10 years of working with John Kelsey on the 7.35 x 15" redlines for the '67 Z28, the tires are now available through Kelsey Tire.  I received the first redline Goodyear Power Cushion sample today.  We have been working on the details of this project since last year.  Very exciting news for the hobby. 

The tires are awesome and right on the money.  Call 800-325-0091 for yours today!

Roy, enjoy working with you at Barrett Jackson and I know you have a lot on your plate.  I hope that everything for you continues to move in a positive direction.  We'll always have plenty to do at BJ.  See you in Reno.

I will have to check on costs.  I have an appointment with my printer as I'm going to be working on a new 5th edition of the '69 Camaro book so I will check on cost, quantity and approx. page count for a judging manual.

Stay tuned,

I know after three pages of posting here that this issue does need to be addressed.  What data I can add to the table is any original car that I've inspected over the past 20 years or so have had the four clips on the trim rings.  I think was has happened is when GM began making the service replacements, these were "finger style" trim rings and many owners of cars have just assumed these later style rings were original and or acceptable.  I have even stated that both are acceptable in my Camaro fact book due to the data I had at the time.  Many originals may have been replaced due to curb scrapes and such.

So, all that said, we will address this issue this year and work on getting that concours judging manual done.  That will aid everyone who comes into the hobby.

Yep, can't say the same for other auctions.  Have a hot mess law suit getting ready to blast off shortly.  Stay tuned.  Fake black Z28, hidden vin numbers ground out, incorrect trim tag, restamped drive train and more.  All the best!

The BJ coverage will get better.  Due to the fact that Speed went away, the Fox Business and FS1 were the best they had to offer for 2014.  I found out after talking to personnel at BJ that the coverage exploded the ratings so next year will be better and more consistent.  Trouble with most of the Mecum cars is "The Bid Goes On."  70% of the cars do not sell. 

What I have positive to say about BJ now is they are trying to clean up all of the fakes that come to auction.  They have hired automotive specialists to do inspections before the cars go across the block, and that's a good thing.

Paragon Reproductions makes a perfect replacement, GM part #3955527.   This is what we use for the engines we rebuild here at CHP/
