Mark Ellis use to be a crew member for Roy Woods' race team back in the early '70s and he was kind enough to scan these photos from his personal collection for all of us to enjoy. The captions come directly from him. Many thanks for sharing these with us, Mark. I'm sure you have some great memories from working for the RWR team.


Frank Martinez, Suzan Ellis and Jeff Woo sitting on the back of the RWR Trick Truck mid-week at Donnybrooke.



Follmer, with his back to us, talking with Roy and Jerry Schwarz before the 1972 Lime Rock Trans Am.



Judy Stropus, she knew the relative positions of the entire field for the entire race.



Roy's car under the canopy attached to the Trick Truck.  That's Ken Ulrich just in front of Roy's girlfriend.



Attendee inspection.

I posted that previously in the "Crossram manifold" thread but here it is again for convenience. (Jon Mello Collection)

Sorry, it couldn't be helped.  Grin

Stunning, incredible work, Mike. Where most people would make do with what is available or be content with an off-the-shelf model, you go to amazing lengths to get it right. Your work never ceases to amaze me. Telling you "good job" is not enough.

You're welcome, Eric. Some very good dry sump info there if you do end up being able to use that setup.

There are TONS of shots of the Penkse Camaros and a few of an AMC garage area with the Red white and blue cars being assembled. Many Corvettes at the Daytona endurance races, Tony Delarenzo's L88, Garners L88  - ALSO some drag racing photos of Wenzels  67 Z the 67 L78 Conv BATCAR, a couple of more 67-68 dragcars. All under this heading EXACTLY -   [[label]] (with the brackets)

Select 100 per page as there are 1700 photos under this label.

James, thanks for pointing that out to us. There are some really great photos there.

that # 34 camaro with the unique gauge panel, look to me like the pit lane at bridgehampton ?

group/7

Yes, I would agree it looks like Bridgehampton.

The #15 '67 body Penske Camaro won 3rd overall at Sebring (1st in T/A class) then went to Canada. Craig Fisher drove it at the Lime Rock Trans-Am as car #50.

James, I hadn't thought to look for unlabeled photos like that so now I've got more searching to do. Thanks! Smiley

I believe the #34 car is Skip Barber's red '68 Z that ran as #56 later at the '68 Bryar Trans-Am. The three or four you hadn't seen were from the 1968 Sebring race.

You're welcome, Eric.

Below is a copy of the April, 1970 Camaro Heavy Duty Chassis Parts list as printed by General Motors. It is
essentially the same as what I posted from "The Complete Chevrolet Book" above but there are a handful
of part numbers listed in this one that don't appear in the other. This comes courtesy of Dave Horchler.

I saw it at the Camaro Nationals in the Poconos back in 1990 and it was in good shape then also. I think it has always been well cared for. Like you, I'm glad it's still around. I know I took some pics of it back then but I'd have to do some digging to find them now.

Thanks again to Mike Scott (group/7) for sharing his copy of the follow-up road test of the Car & Driver Blue Maxi
Camaro, aka Z/29. He also included some of the letters that were written in by readers after the article appeared.
