Steve, very interesting tidbit about Rayborn driving a F5000 car and perishing in an accident in the car down in NZ. I don't think I knew that fact. Thanks for the insight.

Steve,

I have not read Brock Yates' book so I don't know which '69 Camaro he claims to be driving but I always assumed it was the one that Warren Agor raced, as discussed in this thread... http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=12761.0

However, since it is indicated that the '69 Camaro that Warren raced was destroyed at Road Atlanta, I have no hard info on what car Yates drove.

Thanks, Zombie. It has already been posted and we are aware of the website but for some of the newer visitors, it's not bad to be reminded of what a great resource that is for vintage car and racing photographs.

Thanks for that info, Lou. Sounds like you guys had some enjoyable times as a club. I got the photos you sent to my home email and have posted them below...

An original, unused chrome mylar club sticker


Club gathering at "The Plaza". Lou is the skinny guy in the white t-shirt with his hands on his hips and Diane is the blond on the left looking at the camera.


Grand River drive-in.This was located next to Roger Peck Chevrolet taken on a Sunday afternoon.The first Camaro on the right is believed to be Diane's car. Lou's car is on the left


"This was taken on Grand River heading towards the Drive-in.The middle Camaro is mine sometime in 69 as the dog dish caps and 6 in wheels are still on.The Camaro behind me
has Hilborn stack injection! He only came this one time.The car was an automatic and was a real handful to drive.I had to get out in front of him a few car lengths so he could take
off without stalling!


Lou's burnished brown L65 4-speed car circa 1970. The club sticker can be seen in the rear quarter window.

Definitely an improvement. Nice job, Mike.

Lou,

Thanks for your recollection. Do you happen to have a picture of Diane and her car from back then or any other pictures that would be fun for us to see? I was also curious, where did your club hold its meetings and how many members did you have at that time?

Bob,

Terrific photo of Warren and Ron. Thank you! You've got some great photos in your collection.

Very intriguing info on Warren's orange '69 Camaro. I made an assumption that Brock Yates was driving Warren's old '69 at the 1971 Watkins Glen Trans-Am since the car was the same color, generally looked the same other than the car number, and was entered by Hoselton. If that's not the case, can you enlighten me (us) further? Would be great to get the facts right.

Thanks, Scott. I could have sworn I posted those but can't seem to find them, so maybe I never did.

Some photos of the first, original Camaro, constructed by Agor Racing.

Those are two great shots of Warren and his earlier Camaro. Many thanks for posting them. If you've got any more we'd love to see them.

Our hero may be older now but he still has a way with the ladies.  Grin

Sad news indeed, Robert. Thanks for letting us know. My condolences go out to his wife and family.

Thanks for posting those links, Scott. Some really great photos there which we have not seen here before.

Those wheels on Agor's Camaro looks small in comparison to the Minilites on the Boss Mustang. I'm sure
they're 15" diameter but with the blacked out spokes they somehow present an illusion of being 14's.

The T70s are similar to the '60s straight spoke Americans but with the smaller '70s style center cap, as shown on the left in the photo below.
I can't recall seeing T70s being run on a Trans-Am car. Jerry, are you meaning to say you ran the 200-S style of wheel?

Not built until the late '80s apparently and then used for autocross, not road racing. Would be something that somebody running in SVRA back east could use or maybe a candidate for down in New Zealand or Australia.
