Great post, Mike. I appreciate you going the extra mile with regard to tipping us off to books, videos, and websites that would be of interest to us. Thanks!

Very cool, Eric. Great to see more pics of the car from its early history and that's a nice treat be be able to talk directly with the guy who originally raced it.

Danny,

I definitely need it so I don't want to resell it. Thanks for not hammering the guy to get it. It will have a good home on my gold car.

Sorry we didn't get the chance to meet up but hopefully another time.

Danny, I got moved to another spot so we would have had a hard time meeting up. It was bitterly cold and miserable weather-wise. Never saw the sun, only my breath. Brought all kinds of sunscreen since it has been sunny and warm the past couple of years, but didn't need a drop of it. Barely remembered to bring a coat but even with it, I did not feel warm in any way. Was not a whole lot of fun, especially with trains running by the hotel all night long blowing their whistles. Next year I may do something else. We left at 2PM on Saturday. Only nice thing was I was able to buy an NOS cowl plenum duct from somebody.

Yes, that's Dick Guldstrand and he's sitting on the hood of the Chaffey College sponsored Mustang he drove in the '70 Riverside Trans-Am.
38  Model Specific Discussions / Trans-Am Camaros / Re: Power steering on TA Camaro on: January 22, 2015, 06:09:04 PM
The correct GM casting number for the power steering box to use is 5691676 and you should use a p/s pump visually correct to the era. No electric assist or anything like that. Some good steering and suspension info can be found on David Pozzi's website... http://www.pozziracing.com/camaro_steering.htm#PS%20pumps%20and%20brackets

Interesting that two of the wheels have the valve stem hole in the lip and the other two have it between the spokes.
40  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 140 cam.........................how much vacuum ? on: January 22, 2015, 12:04:51 AM
Rex, I ran the 140 cam in my old '69 Z for three years and never had a gauge on it to measure the actual vacuum, but there was never an issue with the operation of the power disc brakes, if that is the area of your concern.

It was tried on Ronnie Bucknum's Sunoco Camaro during the first race of the season in '69. There was some sort of failure of the system (lost belt or something else) during the race so they scrapped the idea for the rest of the season. Jerry Titus used it on his '70 Firebird Trans-Am but he suffered from arthritis in his hands and needed it more than some other drivers might. It was not commonly used back then and the races were much longer than any vintage race happening today but several vintage cars are running it. If you're going to run a power steering system, it ought to be correct GM stuff from '72 and earlier.
42  Model Specific Discussions / Trans-Am Camaros / Re: 1968 Trans-Am season review on: January 20, 2015, 11:44:54 PM
Mike, I assume that it was the Alan Green sponsored Camaro. Skip Scott was the primary driver of the car in '68 but Jerry Grant was sometimes brought in by Alan Green as a "hired gun". The Alan Green Camaro was painted dark green late in the '67 racing season and was still green in 1968.

The Yenko crest emblem was not installed on any '67 Camaros when new, if I understand correctly. It was not designed and put on any cars until the '68 models came out, correct?
44  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Vintage 1967 Yenko photo's on: January 18, 2015, 10:34:20 PM
Jon ill send you a pm. This car has Yenko paperwork and it was stolen when new so NICB has a file on it telling the story.

     Never saw a PM from you but would definitely enjoy hearing more about the car.
45  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Vintage 1967 Yenko photo's on: January 17, 2015, 05:29:41 PM
Really neat vintage pics. Thanks for posting. Which Yenko # is it and what town was this car in at the time?
