Welcome. These are the only two I have. The first at Edmonton in 1973 and the second at Road America in 1973. Both with Dick Kantrud driving, as far as I know. Sorry the second pic only has part of your car.

Mike, if you are trying to replicate the '67 Marlboro winner, which I believe you are, then you don't want to copy the cage of the 2nd car. It's similar but not the same and as you pointed out, the roll cage bars do not extend into the trunk. I'd much rather see you keep what you have than go the other route.

Driver's seat in George Follmer's AMC Javelin. Looks like the same one homologated by Chevy for the Camaro (less the extra foam padding).

Penske pitboard items. "Fumbler" = Follmer. "Ranson" is most likely Revson.

Once again, we have more racing photographs taken by Ron Lathrop but this time at the August 4th, 1968 Bryar Trans-Am. As mentioned previously, Ron was a freelance racing photographer dating back to 1963 and did work for Sports Car Graphic, Competition Press, Road & Track, as well as a number of karting magazines and even Rod & Custom. He also was in the U.S Air Force from 1965 - 69 and again from 1972 - 92. These photos are a great reminder of how special the Trans-Am series was back in the glory days of the late '60s and early '70s. Thanks again Ron for sharing these with us!

Here's the engine compartment of the #77 Craig Fisher Firebird. Notice the blue-painted Al Bartz small block Chevy engine and the stock-style rocker arms.

Results, as shown in SCCA "Sports Car" magazine. Even though Craig Fisher is shown in the entry list and results, it was really Gordon Dewar.

Jerry Titus chose to start the race on dry tires and it put him two laps down when he finally switched to wets.

One of my best friends, George DeBacker, passed away from cancer last year. He had this poster which was given to me and it supposedly originated from my local Chevy dealership. I've never seen another example. Any Chevy memorabilia collectors out there know what year this is from? The size is approximately 36"x 42".

Mike, you might also watch this youtube video as there is a good view of the dash when Donohue bring the car into the pits at Daytona. Unfortunately, this is prior to the full roll cage being installed or it could have been even more useful to your model building cause.

Mike, it does seem that the color of the wheels on the '69 should ideally match the yellow used on the "Sunoco Camaro" lettering.

Your '67 cage is looking much more accurate now. One thought, I think the upright pieces of the main hoop should not be spread so far apart or maybe it's just that the rear angled support bars seem to be angled inward too much. There is some distance between the uprights of the main hoop and the inner part of the rear backseat area. It might be similar in that regard to the later '67 car, as seen below. The photo was taken in May '68. This may explain how the horizontal bar which runs next to the door in your model gets attached further out than the vertical part of the main hoop. A small "leg" extends over to the side of the body.

Chad, just a note to say I did look in my '66 SW catalog and I saw nothing about any black bezel gauges. I'm not saying they didn't make them then but I so far don't see anything that is of help to you. I'm sure we'll get an answer eventually.
