It would appear that the car did have Hi-Tork or Koni horizontal shocks at one time like the Chaffey College race car, although mounted
further outboard so they were outside the rear frame rail. Maybe this car saw some autocross/gymkhana/slalom activity, but it is unusual
to see this stuff on a big block car. I agree that you would expect to see the much more common traction bars mounted under the rear
spring on a car like this. Thanks for sharing the pic.

Not an old race car but some incredible detail on a scratch built '69 Camaro model...

I wouldn't put a 302 in anything by choice. Realize several of the TA teams reputedly cheated and ran stroked 302's (aka LT1 350's).
The *only* reason Chevrolet made the 302 is because of TA rules. When the rules allowed it, Chevy went to the LT1.
A little balancing and you'll have more power and same rpm....

Not the greatest photo of those pieces. I was kind of surprised they went that high ($114.50).

Ken, the red pinstriping was definitely used.

Craig Fisher was in the entry list as driver for the #77 Camaro and even in some of the reported results but he in fact had already left to join the Penske team just prior to the Bryar race and Gordon Dewar drove the car instead. If you look at pics of Fisher's #77 at Mid-Ohio, it said "Quiet Man" (appropriate if you know Fisher) above the number roundel on the driver's door. At Bryar, the words "Quiet Man" are covered over with a piece of duct tape (appropriate if you know Dewar). Craig Fisher told me personally he didn't drive at Bryar.

You're welcome. Who was your buddy that ran at the '74 runoffs?

10  Model Specific Discussions / Trans-Am Camaros / Re: Current minilites vs JL-8 brakes? on: March 15, 2015, 10:32:44 PM
Can anyone confirm that the minilites that are being produced now in 15X8@4.5 will fit the vintage spec JL8 brakes?  Meaning C3- corvette calipers on camaro spindles upfront and on a 12 bolt rear. Thanks.W

     I don't have first-hand knowledge. Maybe someone else here does. Like Gary says, I can't imagine Minilite building them in a configuration where that brake/wheel combo would not work.

If I remember correctly, this is the car that Mark Waco bought from Jim Hall. Mo Carter must have bought the Ed Leslie car and Marshall Robbins bought the unfinished backup, which was later sold to Warren Agor for 1972.

Thanks for posting that link, Tim. Great color shot of that Bud Gates Yenko Stormer at Sebring and it looks to me like Don Yenko is behind the wheel, however he had been banned from competition by the SCCA for 6 months for ignoring a black flag at the ARRC event in November '66.

Awesome job making that happen, Steve.  Kudos to you for a job well done.

Yes, that's Roger and there's also Jim "Crabby" Travers on the right with the tire/wheel and crew chief Roy Gane with the dark shirt and white pants.
