Max, the base of the cap is hard mounted to the trunk lid but if you pull up on the chrome t-bar it will unlatch the lid.

I like that dash a lot. Turned out nicely!

It's starting to look like a complete car, Mike. You've made some great progress on it.

I saw a video of the car hitting the barrier but nothing more than that. It was a serious collision but the car has been repaired and was at Monterey for the Historics last month. The owner, Bill Bryan, told me has was still dealing with some lingering issues from the collision so he had former owner Don Lee drive the car for him at Monterey.

Thanks, James. I was not aware of that car. Good information.

When looking for NOS Stewart Warner gauges, from at least 1965 through 1974 (and possibly other years as well) they came in red and yellow boxes. Always check the part number and date code though, just to be sure. Stewart Warner went to a 6-digit part number later on.

That #25 car was driven by Pete Hamilton at this race although Lloyd Ruby also drove the '68 bodied Camaro for Gene White Firestone, the entrant of the car. It is believed that Smokey was involved with building the Gene White cars.

Steve, there were some Firebird homologation forms posted previously on this forum at http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=8075.0

Thanks for posting those, Steve. The Monaro is interesting. The roofline and side windows reminds me a little bit of one of the '69 Camaro styling proposals that GM did before they settled on the final design, but it does have a little touch of Pontiac GTO-ness to it as well.

Steve, early on when tires sizes were not all that wide, especially on a non-factory entry, a rolled fender lip might do the trick. Sometimes instead of rolling the lip upward, I've seen it where somebody has made cuts every three inches or so and hammered the short segments upward so they would not interfere with the tire. By '69 I figure there was probably nobody left who didn't have some type of actual fender flare on their car due to the width of the tires.

Steve, I don't think there is one on the '68 Titus "Firebird" other than the photo shown in the May '69 issue of Motorcade magazine (shown below)




There was an article about Craig Fisher and the Firebird in the '68 St Jovite Trans-Am program but it is in French, if I remember correctly.

Mike, from my novice perspective I thought the replication of the dash and the rear floor area were going to be some of the harder things to pull off, but you have made it look easy.

The car looks very nice. One comment, on the top of the cowl I have not seen two separate blackout areas like the painter has done. The two should be connected so there is no yellow gap between the two.

My 68 Z/28 was started the 5th week of February & according to NCRS, it was finished March 13th...Joe

What's it say on your cowl tag, 03B or 03C?

I don't know Darrell but it's one of those situations where you can never have enough.  Cool

The Vick Campbell (#75) and Joie Chitwood Camaros, seen here at the '67 Sebring race, used a Halibrand or "Halibrand-like" fuel filler cap.
These were another cap that was used at Indy well before being used in the Trans-Am series.
