Thank you all for the kind words.  I really appreciate it.

There is a plan for more of these "Track Talks," and I will work with the next presenter(s) to help them come off even better.  Future "Track Talks" will be on a variety of different brands and topics related to the Historic Trans-Am era, with a presenter who is knowledgeable on the subject.

Hello folks,

For those attending the Monterey Motorsports Reunion this weekend, on Saturday, at 2pm, in the Trans-Am alley, at the big red Edelbrock transporter, we'll have a "track talk" session on some of the unique parts that were made for these cars in the glory days of the Trans-Am. 

The overview will be provided by some of the members of this forum (Jon Mello, Robert Lodewyk (Sixteen Grand Sedan #56) and myself (OCTARD).

The discussion and part overview will last about an hour, and be on some of the special parts that GM made for their Trans-Am racers.  Special focus will be on varying GM crossram manifolds, crossram and single four cowl plenum air cleaners, etc.  The individual items discussed will be off the vehicle for better viewing and individual inspection.  Please drop by and learn a little bit about what makes these Trans-Am cars so special, by some of their parts.

Pleasure to have you here, and asking questions.  Here is a past forum message you may find interesting:

http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=7815.msg66305#msg66305

And if you want to find more info, I'd imagine that a search for:

  "Herb Adams Firebird"
  "Milt Minter Firebird"

.. On both this forum and the web would serve your interest well. 

I'd provide more, but searching and composing messages from this "smart phone" is limiting.

I'll be there, Robert... from the Tuesday before to Sunday night.

Looking forward to seeing you, and anyone else.

An old ad for Fypro and Racemark products that Mark Donohue endorsed (pulled from a May 10, 1972, National Speed Sport News).

And the last page of the above '72 Lime Rock Trans-Am Event from the May 10, 1972, National Speed Sport News.

Busted even quicker than I thought.  Here is the "unaltered" image and caption from the May 10, 1972, National Speed Sport News:

This from a May 10, 1972, National Speed Sport News review of the above noted Lime Rock Trans-Am event.



This is an old scan, of just a picture of particular interest to me.  I'll scan the text of the full article when I get back in town.

This is a great thread, Jon.  So much documentation on a year that doesn't get much attention from more current retrospectives.

And Robert, thanks for contributing so much to this effort.

Hello Robert,

I believe that Falcon you're seeing is the Holman-Moody Challenger III that ran in the A/Sports Racer class. As noted elsewhere by Jon Mello, the driver was W. Scott Clawson.

Here is a re-link to a previously posted photo by Jerry Melton of this car (at the Michigan Int'l Speedway "RAM Regionals", April 27, 1969).

Thanks to Robert for all the new photo additions!

Great stuff from a true enthusiast, both "back in the day," and today.
