Ken Deckman's Z-28 at the '67 Riverside Trans-Am. Ken's car was bought new out of Alan Green Chevrolet in the Seattle area.
He had raced Corvettes prior to this. It was sold by Ken to Bob Morton is the 1990's and Bob restored and vintage raced it.

Scott,  Here's my understanding of it. If I'm wrong, maybe somebody will correct me. In '67 they took the manufacturer's claimed dry weight of the car and allowed a 350lb reduction from that claimed weight, so with a stated F.I.A weight of 2,640lbs, I would gather that Chevy must have claimed a base Camaro dry weight of 2,990lbs. For 1968, the rules were changed to get away from arbitrary dry weights claimed by the various factories involved and established a flat dry weight of 2,800lbs for all over-2 liter Trans-Am cars. For '69, they bumped that weight up to 2,900lbs and I believe in 1970, they moved it up to 3,200lbs dry or 3,400lbs ready-to-race. I believe it stayed at that weight through the '72 season.

Ron,

Just to be clear, the black Z and the one that lost a wheel are not the same car.
Here's a link to an ad showing the black car for sale.

Yenko officially prepared two "Stormer" versions of the Z-28 for competition
in 1967, a blue one for Bill Boye and a red one for Bud Gates.

Hey Ron,

I can't help you with the white or blue ones but this black Z-28 driven by Lake Underwood
at the Marlboro 300 Trans-Am race in '67 is for sale and not all that far from you.

Hey Rick,

Just wanted to let you know in case you hadn't seen it already, that I put the rules for the '67 season here.  I've also got the other years in there as well so if you feel like doing some reading you can figure out when they started allowing things like aftermarket intake manifolds, dry sump oiling, etc.

Mike,

No, I have never heard of it but I looked around and found a copy at Autobooks-Aerobooks in Burbank, CA, (818) 845-0707. I ordered a copy of that, plus "Powered by Sunoco 1968", "Road Racing, Detroit Style" and another one with no audio which covers the 1969 Laguna Seca and Riverside Trans-Ams. That should tide me over for a little while. Grin

I've got no idea but you'd love that one for your collection, wouldn't you Ron?  Grin
