Mike, thanks for the update and nice to see some attention to some of your other project cars. A vast improvement on the Mustang front valence. I'm very glad to hear of a proper dash being worked on for the '67-'68 GMP Camaros. I might have to commission you to make a couple of extras for me. Can't stand the sight of the '69 style dashes in the earlier cars.

The Javelins were using them starting in '68 and Penske started using them in '69.

Here's another shot of one of the Camaros that Smokey used at Bonneville to set various speed records.

Gary, I remember the car was for sale for a fair number of years with no takers. Can't remember what the asking price was and I have no idea who might own it now.

Here's another article from the 1971 Road America Trans-Am program.

I have no experience with somebody building one of those for me. I don't know if I have seen a company building them but I think I have seen individuals selling something like that on ebay.

A short write-up on the University of Pittsburgh Trans-Am team and their '69 Camaro, as found in the 1971 Road America Trans-Am program.

Nice article from SCCA's Sports Car magazine on the introduction of the Corvair Stinger and written by no less than Don Yenko himself.

Thanks. #775 has not been found to my understanding. Is that correct?

The 70 Bud Moore car #775 had a three link set up but Parnelli set faster times in the normal suspension car so it was removed. You can see what remains of the brackets and the three link that they all had. This car had a very high rear deck area in front of the rear window inside the car and the rear shocks were outboard of the frame rails too. You can also see part of the over ride traction bars where they pass through the floor.

     Thanks for posting these! Is that #775 or #776?

Anybody have the pic of Donohue sitting in a Javelin, can't remember which year, but there's a red Koni or something in the pic behind him,  mounted just above the driveshaft tunnel.   Ken

     I think I recall seeing a photo like that at one time but I don't have the image saved or anything.
42  Model Specific Discussions / Trans-Am Camaros / Re: Watts Linkage And Other Locating Devices on: February 10, 2015, 11:54:02 PM
You're correct.  I knew it was a school!  Do you know if anyone ran a top link?

     I guess I'm not sure what that is.

On paper, the Girlings had a slightly larger rotor than the Corvette piece for more swept area based off an equivalently sized brake pad. The Girling and Hurst-Airheart calipers would also be lighter than the cast-iron Corvette, hence improving unsprung weight.

Thank you Jon.

This is very interesting. I guess the Girling would be superior to the JL8 but is there any mean to get a proof they have been used on a first gen Camaro back in the days ?

     I'm not sure I will be able to find a picture of a Girling caliper on a '67 Camaro in Trans-Am but if you look in the rule book thread, http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=7850.0 , the SCCA GCR's say under 6.1.a Automobile Eligibility, line 1 a, your '67 Camaro is an eligible FIA and Trans-Am car. Under section H) Brakes, line 7 says the type of brakes you use are free (unrestricted) as long as they are mounted in the stock location.

Would love to know who Wes sold it to. I guess I could always give him a call.  Tongue
