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."

You're welcome, Robert. That Tom States car looks pretty immaculate.

Tim, no we don't have it in the database and I don't have it in a list of Trans-Am cars. Sorry. Would be neat if it showed up someday.

Radio noise suppression.

That's correct, and these appear to be replacements. The original GM caps have a raised bump in the center that these are lacking.

Great information. Thanks for posting. If you could find those photos and post them that would really be appreciated. Did they have the same paint scheme as shown below with Ron Tonkin Racing Team painted on the door? I thought one might be black and the other red but it's nice to hear from someone who saw them that they were both red.

Steve, the book sounds interesting and a free copy sounds great. Thank you!  Grin

Lots of positive sounding details with new cars being built, staying strict with the rules, being allowed to run your tires if you fill your own grid, etc. I hope it continues to grow and succeed as you guys have envisioned it.

Thanks, Steve. I knew you were working on a magazine project but I'm not sure I knew you were working on a book as well. I don't know how you find the time to do all the things that you do!

I do appreciate that you took the time to offer some insight into historic racing "down under". It does seem that you took on a monumental task and have been successful with it so far. I hope you are able to nurse it along further toward achieving the goals you are striving for. If you are popular enough with the crowds, maybe this can help you influence certain race organizers.

Mark Donohue article from the Delaware County "Daily Times" newspaper, January 4, 1968.

That's pretty interesting, Fred. Maybe on the UOIT it was when it was started and on the NCRS docs, it's when it was finished.  Huh

Sounds like one of Mike Rossi's old cars.

Thanks, Mike. For some reason, I thought the Ken Coles website had been posted previously, but apparently not. I do like that he has photos of many privateer cars that you don't often otherwise see.
29  Model Specific Discussions / Trans-Am Camaros / Re: Trans Am racing pace car pics...are there any? on: June 25, 2014, 08:36:16 AM
Here are some pics of the '69 Laguna Seca pace car with Ronnie Bucknum at the helm. It seems he was sufficiently
recovered from his car accident to drive the pace car, but not enough to race the #9 as Ed Leslie drove it for this
race (and finished 2nd to Donohue). These photos come to us from the Robert Lodewyk Collection.

Well, there's no doubt that's how they feel about it.  I do, however, like how this particular situation worked out for me.  Smiley
