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.

About a third of the way through the race, Jerry Titus was trying to make a pass on Ken Duclos' white Mustang when they came together.
Titus' car spun many times before careening into the dirt bank, doing serious damage. He somehow got it over to the infield out of further
harm's way, but his day was done.

Yes, it has been for sale for awhile and has been on ebay but Tom still has it. I do remember seeing a story about Paul driving the car to the Mid-Ohio race but even better to hear your first-person recollection! As a side note, when Paul owned the car it was just plain white, no red stripe or Chaffey College on it. He ran as car number 96 or 99.

Yes, race teams did use the cable, but obviously some opted to do something different. Maybe some drivers thought they had a better pedal feel with the mechanical linkage.
