Chad, sharp eye and great research on your part. Thanks for calling them and for posting your findings here. It is really appreciated and no doubt will be a benefit to somebody wanting to restore their race car appropriately.
2672  Model Specific Discussions / Trans-Am Camaros / Re: Ideas to share concerning 1:18 '67-'69 GMP Penske Donohue Camaros. on: July 07, 2011, 10:52:46 PM
Mike, I think that's a good decision regarding the cage in the '67.

The '69 is looking very good. Lots of effort there and it shows. The wheels look nicer now that they match the yellow on the body although, truth be known, I think your first wheel color was closer to correct and the yellow on the body was a bit too light. Can't monkey around with that however so you did the next best thing. You must be working on a steering wheel as I don't see one in there. Glad to see that as the one GMP put in was not correct for '69.

Welcome. I have not done a whole lot of collecting of pace car photos but here are a couple. The first is from the 1967 Mid-Ohio Trans-Am.
It shows a pretty much unaltered Indy Pace Car Camaro.

The second is not from a Trans-Am but from an SCCA National event at Marlboro Raceway in Maryland.

If I run across any more, I will post them here for you.

Another report on this race, this one from the Oct 8, 1967 Bryar SCCA National program.

Still cool though. Thanks for posting.

Thanks for posting more vintage photos of the car. If I run across any others, I'll try and post them here.
2677  Model Specific Discussions / Trans-Am Camaros / Re: 1968 Bryar Trans-Am photos on: July 06, 2011, 10:00:24 PM
Glad you enjoyed this feature, James. Here is some more info from one of my issues of Competition Press.

This first tidbit says Donohue had the championship locked up prior to Bryar but Camaro
still needed three points so mathematically Javelin and Mustang were still in the running.

Tim, thanks for posting that. Looks like it includes his helmet too. Pricey, but very cool.

Mark wrapped up the Trans-Am championship for Chevrolet by winning at Bryar. This was his 8th victory in a
row and he would end up winning 10 of the 13 Trans-Am races in '68. A dominant effort. Tony Adamowicz
won the under-2-liter class and also had a dominant 1968, helping Porsche win U-2 that year.

Glad to hear the positive responses. Hopefully Ron will be able to share some more with us.

Titus vs Donohue. Titus would fry his rear axle but the Shelby team replaced it in 10 minutes!

You're welcome, Chad. We are very privileged as fans of these cars to be able to view photos like these and I have made it clear to Ron that we are very appreciative. He is pleased as well. What is really neat is that he got around to all parts of the track during the race weekend and took photos everywhere he went. The detail shots are just priceless though. A real treasure.

Tony Adamowicz' 911. It was legal to leave the bumpers per SCCA rules so they left the front on for the aerodynamic benefit but
left off the back one for better cooling purposes and less weight behind the rear axle. Only a few 911s copied this later detail.
