Another photo, possibly by Kanji Satoh, of an early T/G Firebird (prior to the 1969 Wolverine Trans-Am at Michigan Int'l Speedway)

This was among some of the programs and other memorabilia that I purchased from Robert Barg at the races a couple of weeks ago.

Mike, that air cleaner and duct are coming along nicely!

Two gold and black Camaros taking off at the start of the 1967 Sebring 4-hour Trans-Am race. The #22 is driven by Charlie Kolb of the Fred Baker Racing Team and the #4 is driven by Johnny Moore (entered by HRH Corp, Hugh Heishman's entry).

Great recommendations, Mike. Thank you for posting them. Speaking of Mustangs, Walt Boeninger
has a nice website at http://www.shelbytransam.com/walt/ShelbyTA/index.htm . Some interesting
things there if you take the time to go through the various photos and links, and he's done a nice
job of documenting the history of his car.

Here's a comparison shot between the end of a GM sway bar (left) and what is believed to be an Addco sway bar (right).
2527  Model Specific Discussions / Trans-Am Camaros / Re: Front sway bars on: June 16, 2011, 01:23:14 PM
Another couple of views...

A couple of shots of the aftermarket 1" sway bar with its custom-made aluminum bushing. It is unusually
made with an off-center hole through the two separate aluminum blocks. This item came off a legitimate
'67 Z-28 which, when found by Robert, had been abused as a circle track car. Robert thinks that the car
had road racing history prior to that.

Beginning some time in 1969, some Camaro (F-body) and Nova (X-body) car got these extra bends incorporated
into the design of their sway bars. These bends served to restrict any potential side-to-side movement of the
sway bar. Prior to these bends being designed into the bar, limiting bushings were clamped in place to serve the
same purpose. It is thought this was done only on early '69 cars or on sway bar sizes (diameters) that had not
yet had the extra bends designed in (some early '70s cars).

Another view showing the ends of the sway bars. GM sway bar ends have a very identifiable style, much different than aftermarket bars.
Robert feels this aftermarket bar (at far right in this photo) is probably an Addco piece.
2531  Model Specific Discussions / Trans-Am Camaros / Re: Front sway bars on: June 16, 2011, 12:43:40 PM
More front sway bars from Robert Lodewyk, 4 GM pieces and an aftermarket piece. His notes...

"The bottom two are 13/16. Note the one must be a pre '69 version since it does
not have the limiting couplings (bushings) on it. The other one with the bent bolt
on the end came off a wounded 1969/70 L78 Nova. The middle one is 7/8. The
other two are both 1-inch. The one with the aluminum blocks is one that came off
an old '67 Camaro race car I had. There are not any numbers on the aluminum blocks."

Here's a Minilite I saw on a '69 Javelin Trans-Am car up at the Sonoma Historics. Does anyone know what the stamped numbers on the circular pad mean?

Many thanks, Mike K, for posting those items. We've really got some neat and interesting things to see in this thread. I believe I still have that '67 Mid-Ohio rendering from R&T from when I was a kid. All boxed up though, not on display.

The Penske Camaro on pit road prior to the start of the 1968 Daytona 24-hour race. This is the only year when the Daytona 24-hour was part of the Trans-Am schedule. Roger Penske is leaning in giving Mark last minute instructions while chief mechanic Roy Gane listens in.

I agree with Jerry on the color/plating. Also, I have not seen a more accurate reproduction. I always try and acquire originals.
