Waterford Hills 1969, A B/Production Corvette being chased by what appears to be a '67 Z-28. The paint scheme of the Camaro is very
similar to the '69 Bill Petree Camaro, which I believe was prepared by John and Burt Greenwood.

Joe,

None of the Nickey Z-28s has been located so far. There has been some conflicting info as to whether Bill Thomas got any of them to prepare before the rug was pulled out from under the Nickey racing effort in '67. I will try and put together a more detailed report on these historical "first 25" when time allows as I think people would enjoy that.

Waterford Hills 1969, Erich Aichner (not sure about the spelling) in a  '68 Z28 chasing some others, including a possible Yenko Stinger.

Steve, thanks for posting that list. I just hadn't gotten around to it.

Waterford Hills 1968 Regional event. We've got some Yenko Stinger fans here. Any of you know whose car this is?

UPDATE (courtesy of Craig Wheeldon): "That Stinger looks to be VIN 101375W291539, Yenko Stinger # YS121 driven by
John Dirnbauer. The car was originally owned by Tony DeLorenzo , who drove it in Trans Am and A Sedan races while he
owned it in 1965 - 66, then it was converted to a stage III Stinger in 1967. The current owner is Dave Edsinger. This info
came from Charlie Doerge's new book "Don Yenko and the Yenko Stinger".

Very cool piece of memorabilia, Mike. Thanks for sharing that. Jerry was one of the greatest drivers and personalities of the Trans-Am series.

The passenger side tower is black since it is attached to the breather tube and comes as a one-piece assembly. The driver's side is orange.

Interesting bit of information, Steve. Thanks for posting. I know what you're saying about certain smells. I had a friend who was a mechanic and the shop where he worked had a fire and it burned to the ground. I still remember the smell on his burnt tools.
2335  Model Specific Discussions / Trans-Am Camaros / Re: Photo Gallery for A/Sedan and A-B/Production cars on: January 04, 2012, 11:28:17 PM
Steve, thanks a lot for posting those. I've got much more in the works but am trying to figure out the drivers.

Dale, I have no idea about the Falcon but it would be neat if it was still around.

You're welcome and good luck!
2337  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Need information for steering arm 3902520 on: January 03, 2012, 10:58:03 AM
The '519' and '520' arms would work but it might be nicer to find a set of appropriate arms for a '69. The fast steering arms you want are 3954875 and 3954876.
2338  Model Specific Discussions / Trans-Am Camaros / Re: 1968 Daytona 24-Hour recollections on: January 02, 2012, 11:16:39 PM
Thanks for that, Mark. I bet that Yenko reunion was a lot of fun. I wish I had gone.

I got this yesterday from Jerry Melton.

"There really was water in the natural pond at "Swamp Turn" (Spitfire picture) necessitating workers to be in a boat in case someone spun into the wet.     It's solid now.    In the same picture the proximity of the back straight to the back yards of the subdivision is clear.    The club was always at war with the 'hood about noise, etc.    Racecars have to meet decibil restrictions.    The final shot shows the current wall which looks strong enough to contain King Kong."
