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!

Just yesterday I received a large quantity of racing photographs taken by Ron Lathrop at the 1967 Bryar Trans-Am. 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. I'm going to post the Camaro photos first but would like to post all of them just because they are really cool and I think we all would enjoy them. Thank you very much Ron for sharing these with us!

This first photo shows Mark Donohue's car after he broke an axle during a practice session. He would later break one again during the race and wipe out his front sheetmetal. What is interesting here (to me) is the fact that the hood is bent and this is before it ever hit the wooden barricade during the race. All the front sheet metal for Bryar (according to Donohue's autobiography) was thinner gauge lightweight stuff stamped on GM tooling but maybe the hood was acid-dipped instead. Anyway, I'm wondering if this hood was bent because it was too thin and flimsy.
