I guess they were saving the best for last.

Here's an 11-13-66 newspaper article showing that Dana Chevrolet began operations in August 1966 after buying out the
former Enoch Chevrolet dealership. They also established themselves quickly as a racing force by sponsoring Chuck Parsons'
McLaren in the later part of the Can-Am series after he had won the USRRC championship earlier in the year.

     Steve says... "If your system uses another platform, we’re hoping to have Apple iTunes, Zinio etc available shortly. We’ve been slightly frustrated by a new block Youtube appears to be setting up that doesn’t allow their videos to be played anywhere outside their own website, so the video links take you through to Youtube, rather than play in the mag itself, but we’re looking into a program that will allow us to imbed them within the mag."

Steve Holmes, who has posted here numerous times and who runs the excellent Roaring Season website, has introduced his new Muscle Car digital magazine as of December 4th. It is 100% on-line, not published in a hard copy. There are some very well done features in this issue, but perhaps most interesting to us would be the feature story on the '68 Penske Camaro currently owned by Tom McIntyre. Issue 1 is free to download, and is available here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.musclecardigitalmagazine.mcdmissue1

Excellent job as always, Steve.  I'm not sure how you find the time to do it all.

That's a well done website, Al. Thanks for the link.

Thanks, Al. Yes, BTRC sold a lot of performance parts, often from other suppliers but they would also build and modify cars for people there in their shop. By 1971 though it was all over.

Sorry to hear about that. My condolences go out to Dale's family.

The February 18, 1967 issue of Competition Press & Autoweek reported that Bill Thomas would be involved in heading up
the Nickey Chevrolet Trans-Am effort but this was a short lived endeavor. 1967 was an off year for car sales in general and
Nickey decided to conserve their resources shortly after this. I talked to George Follmer about this recently and he told me
that he was good friends with Bill Thomas and does not recall ever being asked to drive a Camaro for him.

It is believed that the decal shown below is the style used in two places on the front fender of Porterfield's orange Camaro.

Bill Thomas had some involvement with Andy Porterfield's '68 Z/28 Trans-Am car, building the
race engine, providing the headers and exhaust, and contributing to the chassis set-up.

The title of the book more or less describes his driving style.

Looks like somebody bought the rockers and all the other pics have been taken down from the ad.

Here's a set of what I assume are Bill Thomas magnesium rocker arms. They've been for sale on ebay for at least a couple of months.

I've seen M/T rocker arms but it has been quite some time since I last did.
