Robert, this is not my seat. It is the original seat out of the John Putnam '68 Trans-Am Camaro, currently owned by Dave Doyal.
John Putnam was in the San Francisco Region of the SCCA at the time he was running this car. Many thanks to Dave for sharing
these seat photos with us.

Donohue's second '67 Camaro had a Kidde fire extinguisher mount on the rear bulkhead panel. This is the car that raced as #15 at the '68 Sebring race.

Nice shots and an interesting seat mount. I like it. Thanks, Robert.

I've found a "Total Comfort" seat and am working on getting pictures of it. Will hopefully post those soon.

Thanks for posting. Nice to see one "in the flesh". Can you show us what the backside and seat mount looks like, when you get a chance?

I sure was saddened to hear of James Garner's passing. One of my all-time favorite Hollywood actors and so neat that he was a real car enthusiast and a fan of motorsports.

Nick, sometimes the colors in a photo can change and degrade over the course of a few decades. It also seems as though it may not have been a bright, sunny day so overcast skies may have made the color look darker than it really was. Maybe Terry repainted the car with an eye toward attracting a specific sponsor and it didn't materialize. I think the plain red paint scheme is my personal favorite but this blue looks good too.

Does anyone know if the front bracket and the plate welded to the body are the same on a firebird as on a camaro? Looking at the one eBay the bracket does look similar.

Yes, those pieces are the same.

Many thanks for posting the new photo, Nick. The car is so dark I would have guessed the color was black if you hadn't said anything.

X2. Thanks, Mike.

The dealership name on the top does not usually fit on a Camaro, in my experience. In other cases, the dealership name on the bottom does not work, such as on some truck bumpers and I think some vans. This why they made them in both styles.

That car is awesome and so is your girlfriend. You're a lucky guy. Congrats!

For anyone who cares about such a detail, the radiator cap on Donohue's '67 was a Balkamp item.

Robert, that's a pretty beefy looking caliper bracket. Nicely done. Thanks for the "exploded view" of things.

The car was set up very professionally for a privateer, and even had bearing spacers in the front. For this reason, I'm hesitant to discount their usefulness. Any ideas?

This info is from Robert Lodewyk (sixteengrandsedan#56)...
"The car has rear brake rotors mounted on the front. The offset is slightly different, about 1/16" or more to the inside.
If you put the rears on the front, the rotor surface is closer to that large bolt on the top of the spindle that mounts the
caliper bracket. My #56 had a rear on the front with a spacer between the hub surface and the inside of the rotor."
