Ken, that Revs Institute Stanford University Library link is just awesome. Spent a couple hours looking at things last night. Duke Manor took most or all of those racing shots and I called him when he was still alive but he never sold me any photos. Now it is nice to be able to see all those great shots. Thanks!

Yes, it is! Thanks for posting those links.

They did make the magnesium ones in a 15 x 8 size because that was specified by the SCCA as the max legal size, although we know they made cheater sizes (slightly larger). They did not make 15 x 8 200-S Americans in aluminum.

I was also wondering if the Camaro that entered the 12 hours of Sebring and 24 hours of Daytona were strictly identical to the Trans-Am cars for the 1968-1972 period ?

I honestly don't know the answer to that. My email has bounced to the person I was trying but I have some other people in mind that might be able to help. Have you inquired over at http://www.ten-tenths.com/forum/ or at http://www.theroaringseason.com/forumdisplay.php?2-General-Discussion ?

Maybe also http://forums.autosport.com/forum/10-the-nostalgia-forum/ ?

Thanks! Look pretty good.

Well, Wolfgang was not able to provide an answer but he did suggest this French Camaro enthusiast website/forum as a place to ask the question.

I am also going to inquire with another person to see if he might know something.

Al, that was Robert (OG69Z) that you meant to reply to in the last response. Anyway, it looks like you will have a fun toy to play around with when you get that Camaro project done.

The 200-S wheels look great on your Mustang. What's the Eastwood paint color on the spokes? It looks like it is something other than black (possibly).

It looks like wheelcollision.com is in Pennsylvania. For people on the West Coast who would rather not send their wheels so far
I have used Paradise Wheels, 1413 Linda Vista Drive, Suite D, San Marcos, CA 92078. The phone number is (760) 744-2400.
This business is owned by Craig Conley from the Historic Trans-Am group. He can also CNC machine the lips so they look like new.

I did not have a color copy of that article on the Wiggins Teape Camaro so thanks for posting it. That's the 2nd ex Penske Sunoco Camaro that Peter Reinhart took to Europe. It's really a shame no mention of a dry sump is made in either this article or the other one that featured the SCA Frieght Camaro. It makes the sleuthing job harder but we'll just have to keep looking. I've got an email out to Wolfgang Kohrn who runs the ponysite.de .  Since he is in Europe and has spent untold hours researching Mustangs and other touring and Trans-Am cars, he might have some answers and photos to help. I'll let you know if I hear back from him.

Al, the championship was already won for Penske/Donohue in '69 before they ran the last race at Riverside but you are right that the American 200-S mags were prone to breaking. American replaced those with a six spoke design the next year but they never caught on and the majority seemed to go with the Minilites.

Good info. Thanks, Al.  How about engine pieces? Do you recall which cam you used? Did you guys port and polish your own heads or buy them from somebody like Crane Cams? Do you recall what brand of headers you used?

Jon,
 Thank you very much for your kind comments............It was too bad the interview was cut short because I really wanted to acknowledge what a great job Robert Barg and the other members of our team did on being  able to do so much on a very meager budget.......... On a quick aside you certainly need to be congratulated on doing such a magnificent job with this site and providing a forum to help preserve a very important part of our racing history.

Thank you, Al. I appreciate your kind words as well. The subject of dry sump engines came up in another thread. Did you guys convert the engine to a dry sump when it started being allowed in Trans-Am in '71 or did you soldier on without it?

I thought I'd include this photo below so the forum members could see you and some of the other guys from your race team...

Gary, it says they are 15 x 8 in Chevy bolt pattern. Those are some good looking wheels.

I agree. That's not a look that does anything for me.

Here's another picture of a '67 Firebird at the Mosport circuit, courtesy of Mike Scott (group/7). This shot was taken at the
1000K enduro in August 1984. No other known details about it. I don't recall another car trying to take aerodynamics to
that extreme on that style of body back in that era.
