The Shelby Team Mustang of Jerry Titus in the Bryar paddock garages (if they can be called that).

Robert Lodewyk and I saw Sam Contino at the Legends of Riverside event that we attended back in 2009. He had a really neat scrapbook with him which showed the many cars and projects he worked on at Chaffey College.

I posted this in the Chaffey College thread but thought a copy belonged in here as well. This is the engine in the Chaffey College Camaro. It was not run in Trans-Am until Paul van Valkenburgh bought it and by then the rules changed and it had to run with a single 4-bbl carburetor. The car is using Mondello ported heads, an Isky cam, Hooker headers and M/T valve covers. Notice that both carburetors are facing forward and the throttle linkage is thus on the outside of the driver's side carb.

From the 1971 Hot Rod Yearbook #10, something our own Mister "Cuda 48" can relate to. An article about Sam Contino and the Chaffey College race cars. The '67 Camaro is still around and owned by Tom Wiederhold, who has had it since 1974. I don't know what happened to the Mustang. Anybody know? I don't know how anybody else feels but it is just strange to see Dick Guldstrand in a Mustang.

Thanks to Frank Dihartce for sharing the article with us.

That was a fun event. Robert Lodewyk and I were there along with our T/A hero Robert Barg.

I suspect you're right, Robert. Pretty flimsy hood though, for steel. Yes Mike, I think replicating that spoiler is a must and now you have some good photos to work from.

Continuing on, here are some more photos. Notice how close the crowd is to the action on the track with nothing but a mound of dirt and a chain link fence to "protect" them. Those were the days!
