Ed, it would be nice to keep up with this. The only cars I personally know that changed hands are Karman Cusack's Camaro, which went to Ron Atchley and Gary Goeringer's '68 Mustang that was bought by Karman. I don't know anything about the prices.

Definitely a different mind set but nice to see some praise for the car. Glad you enjoyed the article, Steve.

A look at the cowl tag shows special paint...

I don't think his old L78 was a 1/4 mile at a time, plus it was more like 10K miles, not 5K. Awesome car though. This one sounds neat too.

I remember getting as much as 20mpg with my '69 Z back in the '70s but maybe I was doing the math wrong.  Tongue

Road test of a 1968 Z/28 from the September 1970 issue of CAR, a British publication. Interesting read because the car
is two years old at this point and it also gives a foreigner's take on what they think of the car. (Jon Mello Collection)

The reference to a ZL-1 engine for 1967 is not correct. Somehow the author got some bogus information. An L-72 engine is what should have been mentioned.

As for mag wheels, the only ones I've seen on them were Magnum 500 "mag-style" wheels except for the two road racers, which used American mags.

An article on Bob Simonen's Black Panther Camaro. He's the original owner!

Mike, that '71 Gray Ghost model is really starting to look good. The hard work is paying off. Nice job!

The Titus Firebird is looking a bit like some sort of sand buggy in that state. I'm looking forward to seeing that one take shape. Thanks for posting the updates.

Thanks for the input, Dale. It looks like this ex-Sig Hansen Camaro is still running the same cage from the early '70s even though
the current Australian owner is planning on running it in the "Australian Trans-Am Series". Is this not the same group as yours?

While not on a Camaro chassis, here are some Girling (917 style) brake caliper photos from the Stanford "Revs Digital Library" as seen on the Autodynamics Challenger at Bridgehampton, in 1970:

Craig Fisher raced one of the Gorries Black Panther Z-28s in the Trans-Am series. This one came with a gold interior. The other car was
Craig Fisher's street Z-28 and it had a black interior. Craig sold it to Hugh Dibley over in England and Hugh turned it into a road racer.
It was sold to Pierre Du Plessis, who I have heard wrecked it in South Africa. If it was rebuilt, I don't know.

Gorries Black Panther Camaro road test from the May '67 issue of Canada's Track & Traffic magazine, courtesy of Mike Scott (group/7).
The Black Panther package was available on any V-8 model, although I'm not sure about a convertible. There were even two '67 Z-28s
converted into Black Panthers. The car in the article is 427-powered although, for some odd reason, the engine shown is a small block.
