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.

A photo of Robert Barg and his Camaro, taken at the April 27 MIS regional race.
He says this was his first Nomex driving suit, which he still has.

To tie this in with Camaros and Trans-Am racing, here are some photos of Dave Horchler running his '67 Z-28 at a driving school at Waterford Hills.

Here's the Corvair of Don Eichstaedt. Don also competed in a later Corvair in the 1966 Sebring Trans-Am. Photo taken August '64.

Don in a wheel-to-wheel duel with the Valiant of Scott Harvey. Scott was a factory backed driver and both of these guys raced in Trans-Am in '66.

Here's Bob Johnson in the former Tom Payne Cobra. Bob raced in Trans-Am and was on the Penske Camaro team in various races from '67 - '69.

Photo by Ron Lathrop

Tom Payne got himself a new Cobra for this August '64 race and won with it. Tom co-drove with Dick Guldstrand in the Dana Camaro
when they won the St. Jovite sedan race on May 21, 1967. Some believe St. Jovite was a true Trans-Am race in '67 but that is not true.
It didn't get on the official T/A schedule until 1968. That's Bob Johnson standing in front of the guy in the red coat. The black '63 Z06
Corvette cruising by in the background was driven by Jud Holcomb.

I guess this is Tom Payne's precursor to the Fickle Finger of Fate?  Tongue

Tom Swindell's '63 Z06 roadster next to the "Harley Earl Corvette". According to Franz Estereicher, Tom used this special Corvette
to tow his race car to the track (notice the tow ball). Tom Swindell was one of the top Corvette salesmen in the nation and worked
at Dawson-Taylor Chevrolet in Detroit, which sold many hi-performance cars (including the L88 Corvette raced by Tony DeLorenzo).
That's Norman Luther's '57 Corvette in the background. This photo was taken at the July '64 race at Waterford Hills.

Here comes Tom along the outside to pass a Lotus Super 7 and a Corvette coupe.

And there he goes...

Here's the '63 Corvette Z06 of A.W. Joslin, who hailed from the Lansing area.
