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.

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.

Neat photo of the rear disc brake axle in Skip Barber's '68 Z28. Double-adjustable Konis, Stewart-Warner electric fuel pumps and many other little details to notice.

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.
