Nice finds Jon...where diid you find the Douglass kit?

The kit was on ebay recently. Because the name was partially torn off the label, I don't remember it being listed as a Douglass item.

That's a pretty nice video. Thanks for posting. Warren Dernoshek told me that his son Logan won his race at that event driving their Yenko Stinger Corvair. I wonder if this is a one-time event or something they are planning to do there on an annual basis. Kinda neat to be able to run at a facility like Indy with so much history behind it.

I appreciate your vivid recollection of the cars and hope that you can locate those photos someday. I'd love to see them.

In looking around the race paddock, I'd say that most of the HTA guys still prefer a period Koni double adjustable shock.  People like http://performanceshock.com/ (PSI, at Sears Point) can do a wonderful job restoring/rebuilding them to proper race spec as well. 

Performance Shock can also build new double adjustables, that look and perform just like the originals as well.  They will not however have a period date code (if that matters). 

You might also consider looking into whether http://www.truechoicekoniracingservices.com/ can help you with some new Koni shocks. As was discussed previously in this thread, True Choice has been able to build new versions of their old double adjustable shocks and it's possible they are still offering this service.

As for what other shocks competitors might be using, I honestly don't recall. You will not be dissatisfied if you were to go the Koni route.

The one with no flange is for early '67 Camaros up to around Jan/Feb '67. Then it was replaced with the one with the flange. The flange is where the '67 Firebird turn signal mounted.

This picture gives you a good view of the size of the tire they were fitting on an 8" wide wheel in 1968 and the tire contact patch only got wider as the years went on.

Steve,

The red '68 Rusty Jowett car does not have the same wheel tubs that were fabricated from scratch that the Penske cars had. It appears that the may have added a strip of metal to the stock tub and moved it inward by the corresponding amount. Below is what a lot of independents did to increase clearance on the inside of the rear wheel wells.

I believe this was the 69 camaro built by the Dimension Racing group for Peter Schwartzot to race in 4 1970 T/A races.  Jeff Hoyt was a member of this gang and I knew him back in the day.
This car was sold to Warren Agor and was later raced in IMSA GT and also later T/A again.

I will get the scoop from Peter on this.

Robert, this is the Dimension Racing photo you sent me previously. The car is not a '69 body style and, as such, doesn't seem to be the car Schwartzott ran in 1970.

Here are some Douglass header pieces that came in an NOS header kit, # HK-1405-D , that I recently purchased.
Hopefully the shots of some of the original hardware are useful to some of you.

I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I thought they were pretty nasty.

I would use a semi-gloss or satin black, not anything like a flat black. The argent silver would be good for the other part. I don't know of any reproduction '68 grilles that come pre-painted correctly.

Thanks, Scott. They are very nice but the price is beyond what I'm willing to pay for a new car. Not to be nit-picky but I'd like to see the Z stripes be part of the package on the 6th-gen Z/28s.

Off the top of my head, I don't think the rear spoiler had a lot of effect until the speed started getting up to about 90-100MPH. The front spoilers were more effective than the rear.
