If I remember correctly, this is the car that Mark Waco bought from Jim Hall. Mo Carter must have bought the Ed Leslie car and Marshall Robbins bought the unfinished backup, which was later sold to Warren Agor for 1972.

Thanks for posting that link, Tim. Great color shot of that Bud Gates Yenko Stormer at Sebring and it looks to me like Don Yenko is behind the wheel, however he had been banned from competition by the SCCA for 6 months for ignoring a black flag at the ARRC event in November '66.

Awesome job making that happen, Steve.  Kudos to you for a job well done.

Yes, that's Roger and there's also Jim "Crabby" Travers on the right with the tire/wheel and crew chief Roy Gane with the dark shirt and white pants.

That's a car that Jim Hall wishes he hadn't sold since he's hung on to most everything else. Too expensive at this point for him to ever want to pull the trigger on getting it back.

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?
