This is the ad Mo Carter placed in the October-November 1967 issue of "Track & Traffic" magazine when he put his Z-28 up for sale.

You're welcome, Ron. Glad you enjoyed the read. Here's more from Gary...

"Me with the car bogged down on a standing start at The Glen. It was almost impossible to get a good start with the
light flywheel and all of the carburetor flow from the cross ram. I was still 1st at the end of lap #1."

These are the factory-supplied GM headers for the '67 Z-28 Camaro. Ron Ogilvie, parts manager for
Bill Thomas Race Cars circa September '66 - August '69, tells me that these headers were designed
at BTRC and built by Douglass Headers (Douglass Muffler Mfg). Ron says that he personally painted
the headers the silver-blue color and placed each set in a burlap bag for delivery to GM. These headers
were probably the most commonly seen headers on Trans-Am cars up until Stahl started providing
Camaro racing headers in mid-'68.

Factory supplied instructions on how to do the installation. The headers were furnished "loose" and
it was up to the dealer or owner to install them. No headers were installed on the assembly line.




Here's an original set of GM header gaskets. The heat resistant material is Raybestos-Manhattan No. A 56.


Pages from the Douglass catalog.







Here is an April '67 ad for Camaro small block headers by Douglass.
Most of Douglass' advertisements showed big block Chevy headers.

A couple of photos of the Everett Hatch Camaro. This car was raced by Dick Stanton
and Duane Zinola in '67 before Ev Hatch took over the driving in '68 and updated the
look of the car to the '68 body style. The color was light yellow and raced primarily in
Northern CA and Oregon.

Three views of a '60s era Lakewood scattershield. Lakewood normally painted
their stuff red but this one has been repainted over the years and is in need
of a freshening up. This is the small flywheel (153-tooth) version, p/n 1504 in
the old days. Lakewood now has 5-digit part numbers. Notice the inspection
cover in the bottom, standard back then but no longer available due to safety
concerns.

This little blurb from an issue of Competition Press/Autoweek covering the May 29, 1972 Bryar Trans-Am
discusses an underlying reason for the Milt Minter Firebird running the Motor Wheel Spyder wheels.

Robert,  it points out in the article above that the Ansen, Wedge and RC scattershields are not cast iron but rather are cast steel.  A big difference.  Also, the RC version is made of a special manganese molybdenum steel alloy which allows the metal to stretch in case of a clutch explosion, absorbing energy.

Thanks also for posting the info on what color your three RC scattershields are painted.
