The ride height doesn't look that bad. I've seen people re-arch their springs, which is a tidier way to go, and others who have used lowering blocks. As long as the blocks are not excessively tall, there should be no issues.

It seems that if you have to run against cars that are racing on slicks, there shouldn't be a problem with them letting you run with aftermarket calipers like the kind offered back in the early '70s (Girlings, Hurst-Airheart, etc). This was legal in Trans-Am beginning in the 1970 season.

Thanks for some insight on the wheels, Steve. That Camaro in your photo looks very nicely done although the roll cage looks to be patterned after more modern designs rather than something from back in the day. I'm glad you found some usefulness in the rule books I posted. It provides some sort of validation for the effort being put in here. Best of luck with that new HMC group. I suspect it will be a roaring success.

I can't understand how the Aus/NZ cars fit 10" wide wheels with only mild flaring. When they started allowing 10" wide wheels in the '73 Trans-Am the flares got wild and, in many cases, pretty hideous.

They might be a touch blurry but they are still very neat. Thanks for posting them, Steve. It sure would be great to track down that Terry Allan car someday or at least learn its fate.

You've done a nice job and I hope you continue to have fun with it.

Nice pics. Thanks for posting them. I'm very glad to hear you had a good outing with the car over the weekend
and that you think it's a blast to drive. I see the HTA tag on the dash. Is this the car once owned by Andy Scheer?

Sports Car Graphic editor Jerry Titus got a chance to see what his Trans-Am competition was going to be like when
he did a road test of the Z-28 in the March '67 issue. (Jon Mello Collection)

Thanks, Robert. I'm very sorry to hear of the loss of John Bishop. SCCA certainly felt a loss when he left to form IMSA. His impact on motorsports in North America was very significant. My condolences go out to his family.
55  Model Specific Discussions / Trans-Am Camaros / Re: Trans Am racing pace car pics...are there any? on: June 08, 2014, 02:58:13 PM
James, those pics were taken at "Le Circuit Mt. Tremblant" in St. Jovite, Quebec, Canada. They are incorrectly labeled and I flagged them for correction back in March but they obviously haven't done anything about it.

Here's a May 1967 issue of Motor Trend that featured a road test comparing the Mustang, Camaro and Barracuda.
A Z-28 was included as one of the Camaro models. (Jon Mello Collection)

Phil Seaborn got one of the first '67 Z-28s in the Pacific Northwest and the Seattle Post Intelligencer did a short feature on it prior to Phil
making preparations to turn it into a racer for the Trans-Am series. This article appeared in the Saturday, Feb 11, 1967 issue of the paper.

You're welcome, VT. I hope you enjoy it.

That pipe cleaner idea is a strange one. Has to be hard enough putting one in there, let alone five!

It indicates sometimes Dale runs with a full trunk including a spare tire, jack and a battery so it must have been legal. As such, I wonder why it wasn't in the back under all circumstances.
