Thanks, Mike.

Bad Bascom was a really neat car. A fuel-injected 327 Corvette engine and independent rear suspension in a Chevy II road racer.
Here's a short article on it from the same issue of Car & Driver magazine.  412 horsepower and 2130 lbs. How much fun could
you have with that?  Grin    (Jon Mello Collection)

November 1963 Car & Driver article I posted previously but worth putting into a devoted Bill Thomas thread. My folks had
a '63 Corvair when I was a kid, but unfortunately Bill Thomas had not worked his magic on it.  (Jon Mello Collection)

as a little tyke...Cheetah was my car on our HO slot car track...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4zKV2H5epNE        not a very good you tube  but our track was about the same size and the car was the same color   memories... precious

     I had an HO scale Cheetah slot car as a kid too. Certainly one of my favorite cars at a young age and I still think they are pretty awesome.

Bill Thomas Race Cars catalog, believed to be from 1965. Lots of neat stuff contained within. (Jon Mello Collection)

Jon, in relation to the last couple of posts, just curious, what is the publishing date on that Camaro special magazine from Parkhurst that you put up on this thread post #37, back in June of this year. there is mention of the Dana 427 car there.

Mike..group/7

      It simply states Copyright 1967. There is no specific month called out.

VT & Jon, I pulled my September '66 copy of Car Life, nothing that I spotted on Dana Camaros. in the article "The Sudden Sedan" mentioned briefly is the possibility of there being Camaros in the Trans-Am series next year..'67.

     Thanks, Mike.

Jon have you checked out... oldracingcars.com for more information on race tracks back in the day 67" 68" 69".

     Vince, I have not checked out that website in a long time. I probably should post more on some of the tracks that the T/A series raced at back then.

I guess I'm not aware of a September '66 road test of a Dana Camaro. If it's a Sept issue of a magazine, that typically is 2 or more months ahead so you would be talking July '66 or earlier for a road test, which I can't see happening.

When I bought a '67 V8 dipstick through the parts department in the '80s it had a brown button on it.

Thanks, Bruce.  Steve said it right.  For some reason I just screwed up my reply.  It's all good now.  Grin

No, it's not for sale.
