My stepdad's scrutineer (tech inspector) license from 1974. We were typically at every race at
Road America and Blackhawk Farms back in the 1970-1974 timeframe.

Pretty cool, Chad. Thanks for posting that. Looks like another book that I'll have to add to the collection.

This article by Dan Gurney is from Popular Mechanics and discusses the 1970 Trans-Am series. Can't think
of a better place to put is so it goes here for now. Many thanks to Michael K (Swede70) for sharing this!

I think the large main and rod bearing journal diameters were the bigger problems (besides the extra weight) with the Pontiacs. Bearing speeds were too high and they had oiling problems galore. The engines did not survive but that was helped somewhat when the SCCA allowed dry sump oiling for the 1971 Trans-Am season after heavy lobbying from Roger Penske because his AMC engines weren't surviving either. Roger played up the safety aspect of the dry sumps because a blown engine would dump a lot of oil on the track and could potentially cause a catastrophic wreck.

I have heard that Easy-Off oven spray works at removing paint from plastic but have never tried it personally and have not talked directly with someone who has. There are probably some websites that discuss how to do something like that. As for the repro shift boots, I have seen an advertisement that Soff-Seal is now doing them but I know that others have repro'd them before. I just don't have knowledge of who they were. I think this is one of those cases where you need to check them out at a swap meet vendor and see in person if their's looks any good or not.

Race #12, Riverside (Final race of the season)







Nice Trans-Am photo from 1970 season on this cover below but no race T/A coverage inside. Note polished lip on Minilites.
Good 4-page interview with Parnelli Jones part of this issue.

Rolf, welcome to this forum. I have been to Switzerland and enjoyed it very much. This is a 1st-generation forum and I don't have much in the way of 2nd-generation Camaros other than what has already been posted in the race reports. Not to get off on the wrong foot, some websites are OK with four-letter words or swearing but this is not one of them. That's why I had to sensor your post.
