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.

Thanks for your understanding and for the compliment.

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.

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.
2308  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!
2309  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.
