Here's an interesting 1970 ad from Auto World showing a seat for Trans-Am cars.
Notice the upholstery is the same style as the NOS factory seat at the top of this thread.



Here's another ad from 1970 showing that Auto World was selling the Berry seat
and this ad uses the same Berry photo with the different upholstery pattern.

Yenko sold a seat that had higher side supports but which was not as tall.





Nickey/Bill Thomas sold either the same seat or one very similar.

I'm assuming it was Berry Plastiglas, same as Berry Mini-T shown below.



This optional seat cover looks similar to the Berry seat below.
Maybe just another variation due to different calendar year?
The Berry ad mentions an aluminum seat frame but the frame
on the factory seat is steel.

The original seat from Tom McIntyre's '68 Penske Camaro.

Chevrolet homologated a fiberglass racing seat for the Camaro under part # 3931548.
Below is an NOS example...

Has anybody seen a real live one of these Wedge scattershields that said DANA on it?

Chad, Thanks for posting the pics of the Vintage Engineering Minilites and the link to the website. They sure look like high quality wheels.
Since you have posted full view pics of the front and back sides already, a similar sized photo zoomed in on a spoke or other suitable area
should give us a good feel for the grain or porosity of the metal. I'd love to see the cheater wheels on your Shelby and I bet others
would too.

Has anyone seen or does anybody own some of those clear plastic '69 headlight covers? I swear I saw a set somewhere maybe 20-25 years ago but have not seen anything since.

Heuer was one of the preferred time keeping pieces for timing race laps back in this era. As TAG/Heuer today, they
are still a premier watch and stopwatch company. Shortly after the Camaro was introduced, Heuer came out with a
watch bearing the Camaro name, with built-in stopwatch capability. They were available in 2 and 3-dial configuration.
Roger Penske bought engraved Heuer Camaro watches for all members of his race team after winning the '68 Trans-Am
championship. Heuer Camaros are collector watches today with a very accurate Valjoux movement.

Mike, I'm not sure that's his artwork or not. Similar is some ways and not in others.

Well, the Firebird was white at that time so it's kinda like the photos are in color.  Cheesy

Here's a picture taken at Continental Divide Raceway in Colorado in August '68 in the
more familiar paint scheme of this car. Craig Fisher jacking up the car.

Photos of the '68 Craig Fisher Firebird taken around June or July 1968, before the flashier repaint to Godsall yellow/green.
