I'm glad those things I posted about Bill Petree were new to you and that you enjoyed them. It's sad to hear of Max Lagod's passing at just 41 years old. He was a fine racer and 2-time SCCA GT-1 Champion. My condolences go out to Max's family.

Thanks for letting us know, Ron. Hopefully the photographer will include more photos of some of the other cars which were entered.

Mike, I appreciate the kind words. I think everyone who signs up and posts here has got the same kind of passion for this as I do. There are a significant number of car enthusiast forums where there is bickering, sniping, foul language, etc. I'm very pleased that this forum has not gone in that direction and in fact I won't let it. I appreciate everyone's contributions and I hope they appreciate mine. I don't pretend to know it all and always enjoy finding out or seeing something new. Many thanks to you for taking the time to detail your modeling efforts. They are very well researched and executed and, as such, are truly appreciated.

Warren Fairbanks' '67 Z-28 used a seat from a Shelby Cobra since Warren had raced a Cobra previously and liked the seat.
Warren's car is currently owned by Ron Tribble, who races it in West Coast Historic Trans-Am events.

Looks like Blackhawk Farms. I went to most if not all of the races there in the 1970-1974 timeframe. I'll see if I can find anything.

In the meantime, here are some things from the 1969 ARRC race featuring your Camaro when Bill Petree was driving it.

Very nice to meet you as well, John. It was a great weekend.

Thank you to Pat Hogan for sharing those with us, and thank you Chad for posting them.

You're welcome, Bob. We owe a debt of gratitude to Ron Lathrop for sharing those wonderful photos with us. Hopefully you have had a chance to look at Ron's photos from the Bryar and Michigan Trans-Am events as well. They are also outstanding.

Thanks a lot for posting those photos, Scott. As Chad suggests, it would be nice to see the car get properly brought back to life using as much of the original car as possible rather than cutting out the serial numbers and attaching them to another body.

If I knew how, I could post a couple of "Post Crash" photos of the car...

When you go to post a reply, there's a place at the bottom that says "Attach:" and to the right of that there is a little box that says "Browse..."
Click on the Browse box and find the picture file on your computer that you want to post. When you double click on that file it will attach it to your reply message.
To add a second photo (or more), click on "more attachments" to the right of "Browse..." and you should be able to do the same thing as above.
Then click "Post" at the bottom of the page after you have included any message that you want to accompany the photos. Let me know if that doesn't work for you.

Here are some photos of the sway bar bushing on Vic Edelbrock's Smokey car...

The original double-adjustable Konis are a very good shock and hard to find these days. To my understanding, the body shell of the Camaro has been severely damaged as a result of that 1984 crash but it was not discarded. Is that correct?
2458  Model Specific Discussions / Trans-Am Camaros / Re: 1969 Mid-Ohio Trans-Am photos on: August 23, 2011, 09:40:41 PM
Bruce, I stand corrected. The photos with the NNJR stickers are from the Lime Rock, CT race on May 30, 1969.

Looking much better, Mike. You have a complete grasp of what needs to be done, based on your comments. I'm really looking forward to more progress on this car.

Yes, I thought the photos were terrific. It really is amazing what people have stored away and that's part of why this forum has been established... to help bring some of it out of the woodwork and hopefully help us unravel some mysteries. Contacting Wayne Mahnken should provide you with a wealth of information. Maybe not where the car is currently, but at least some information on what was done to it while under your uncle's ownership. Thanks for your willingness to keep us informed!
