Thanks, Robert. Great feedback. I guess I should have looked at the aerial shot of Sanair to realize it was sort of an add-on to an airstrip/dragstrip but I primarily brought it up because of its proximity to Montreal and the Mt Tremblant track, plus the T/A cars did run there in '72 and '73.

The pinstripe could be had with either the Z22 rally sport option (3L code) or Z21 style trim option (3K code). Since you chose to add the chrome wheel well trim and roof drip moulding, the pinstripe complements those pieces to complete the appearance of the Z21 option.

Very nice looking car. Your shift boot appears to be the one for console equipped cars rather than no console. It used to be kind of hard to find the right boot but they are reproducing it these days.

Thanks for the compliment, Kerry. Normally, I prefer to post the vintage pics instead of current photos but in light of this thread and the original fabricator participating, it would be a good time to see some photos of your car. If you do have some vintage pics also, please post them as well.
2287  Model Specific Discussions / Trans-Am Camaros / Re: Todco and McConnell Racing, Canadian Trans-Am racers on: February 14, 2012, 01:33:01 PM
Ken and Kerry, I really appreciate you guys discussing the car here on the forum as it gives us all an opportunity to learn more about the cars and this racing team. Thanks!
2288  Model Specific Discussions / Trans-Am Camaros / Re: 1972 Mosport race for "Trans-Am type" cars on: February 14, 2012, 01:31:04 PM
Thanks for the info, Robert. How would you rate the Mosport track in comparison to Mt Tremblant (St Jovite) or for that matter, the Sanair track?

Steve, it's a little complicated as there are four or five possible cars, not just three, so I am always trying to seek new information that will ultimately fill in all the details.

Dick Brown translates the more pertinent points of the article for us...
"WITH JOHN TODDS
IT'S A NEW START FOR DICK BROWN
    
After multiple successes in last season while driving the Export A sponsored Camaro , Dick was looking for a new sponsor as McDonald
Tobacco has pulled out due to some CASC regulations/ban about tobacco co's sponsoring car racing.
 
Dick spent the better part of the winter season knocking on doors , and while getting a good response from Canadian sponsors due to his
glorious track record, many were questioning the value of sponsoring a Canadian car in the  American T/A series .
 
We were trying to obtain $75,000 to race a Bud Moore Mustang as the #2 team car to Parnelli Jones for the upcoming 1971 season and
were short by approx $25,000.00.  The then prevailing economic context prevented success....  Dick really worked hard at it but in the
end it was not meant to happen.
 
Dick then got a call from John Todds who asked him to drive the new Camaro he was building for 1971, Todco has been associated with
members of the prominent McConnell family of David and John over the years who were sponsoring Derek Johnson (note: and also Craig
Fisher) as a driver before being beaten regularly by Dick's impressive driving ability throughout the season, 10 races, 4 wins 2 second place
finishes and a 11th place in the Watkins Glen T/A.
 
Dick is now looking at a new beginning with a new team, the first race being the Limerock T/A and perhaps all the other ones depending
on how things go, money wise. Surely a minimum of all of the Canadian and the North/ Eastern U.S. races are targeted, and perhaps the
Quebec championship depending on the competition and the money involved."

Chad, thanks for your input and that of Mike Meek.

Below are some Jerry Melton photos taken at an 1969 SCCA National race at Michigan Int'l Speedway. Both Tony
DeLorenzo and Jerry Thompson went on to race Owens-Corning sponsored Camaros in Trans-Am the following year.

2294  Model Specific Discussions / Trans-Am Camaros / 1972 Mosport race for "Trans-Am type" cars on: February 13, 2012, 01:15:59 AM
Courtesy of Craig Wheeldon, we have a "non-championship Trans-Am race program" from 8/13/72, which had been the date of a scheduled Mosport T/A race until it was canceled along with the rest of the series that year (due to George Follmer dominating the '72 Trans-Am series in his Roy Woods Javelin). The race was run instead as a memorial to a well-known Ontario (Canada) couple who had been very involved with motorsports until they died in a plane crash in 1971. Many of the regular competitors showed for the race, and to my understanding, Warren Tope won. If anyone has official results from this race, please post them.
