You're welcome. Here a shot of the #15 Penske Camaro during a pit stop at Sebring (March '68).

Thanks for the post, Max. Nice to see you finally fire that thing up. Be sure to post some pics when you get it in your car. I'm looking forward to that.

Smokey Yunick video. Daytona Hall of Fame induction. Not Trans-Am related per se, but a colorful personality from Chevrolet racing history.

Just curious. What dealership sold your brother's car?
2285  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Finding my Old 69 Z/28 on: December 01, 2011, 06:12:46 PM
You may want to tell us your brother's name, the name of the dealership that sold it new and what town it was in. Maybe a protect-o-plate stayed with the car and that info could then help it be traced to you.

Big smiles from the two winners of the Marlboro 300 Trans-Am race on August 12, 1967. Mark Donohue is holding the cup/trophy and
Craig Fisher is looking directly at the camera. This was the first win for Penske and first win for any Camaro in the Trans-Am series.

Mark Donohue, with his oldest son Michael in front of him, accepting accolades for a job well done. That's the chief starter Tex Hopkins
(with the cigar in his mouth) talking with Mark's wife Sue, while Craig Fisher (to Sue's left) listens in.

More info from Frank Dihartce on Bruce Behrens...

"Chevrolet high performance iron salesman Bob Dance of Indian River Chevrolet in Cocoa, Fl. told me he sold Bruce Behrens a 1969 Z/28 JL-8 radio delete car that was turned into a Trans Am racer. Dance also told me he had many 1967-1969 Z/28 radio delete and a few JL-8 cars on his lot, and a bunch of COPO Camaros... He also said the workers at Cape Canaveral and Martin were good customers. Bob Tucker was a rocket electrical engineer at Martin in the 1950's thru mid 1960's, and drag racing was his hobby that he turned into a full time business.
 
The Bruce Behrens team also hired the services of the fabulous painter Fred Griffith, who painted many famous cars - including Corvette's for Bo Laws, Bob Jorjorian (his 1963 split window was the next car to be painted after my Camaro ZL-1, and he still has the silver Vette), and Rodger Judski's Corvette Center (who owns the yellow ZL-1 Corvette)."

Ron,

I got some help from John Hinckley and Franz Estereicher. Other details I either knew already or figured out on my own.
I'm glad your happy with what I posted. Even though these were not actual Trans-Am photos, they were too cool not to post.
