Trans-Am Camaros / 1967 Kent T/A 50th celebration by SOVREN
« on: June 26, 2017, 06:59:00 PM »
I hope to attend this Saturday the 50th celebration of the first T/A at Pacific Raceways.
While I didn't race that weekend, I was there as a spectator.

This was the weekend that the famous Local Yuk button was born.
There is a a great story in the latest Sovren June 2017 quarterly mag including
a pic of Jerry Titus bumping into the back of the Russ Harness camaro that led to
Titus destroying his Mustang - he had to borrow the McComb Mustang for the race.

I will proudly wear a Local Yuk button if I can find one.

Trans-Am Camaros / 1968 Watkins Glen Trans-Am program on ebay
« on: March 26, 2017, 02:21:05 AM »
This was my first T/A race - did have this program at one time, but now gone.  Was purchased at
the Village Variety Shop in downtown Glen.  Price is fair but high shipping costs?

Trans-Am Camaros / Tony Adamowicz 1941 - 2016 RIP
« on: October 11, 2016, 06:01:03 PM »
Tony passed recently - had been fighting brain cancer.  He was 68 T/A 2 litre champ in a Porsche 911.
In 66 he raced Darts and the ARA Javelin for Roy Woods in 71. Tony was a prolific racer.  See

Until a few years ago had been vintage racing the 69 Eagle F 5000 car he used to drive.
He was an approachable guy - always willing to chat about racing.

Last time I met him at a vintage event, we shared a few laughs about our adventures at the 71 LIme Rock T/A rain race.

Trans-Am Camaros / SVRA at the Glen Sept. 8-11
« on: August 30, 2016, 08:21:00 PM »
There will be a 50th T/A celebration at the Glen, and I plan to be there.
You can stop by and say hello either at the Bobby Brown pit (former Can-Am racer),
and now vintage racing,  who also raced a 67 camaro at 2 T/A events in 67  You might
find me also at the Chad Raynal operation, who is looking after several HTA cars.

Trans-Am Camaros / Road & Track February 2016
« on: July 15, 2016, 02:32:48 AM »
Just had a chance to-day to look through this issue.  There are some pics of the early "Glory Days" and an
interesting story by auto journalist Zach Bowman who gets to drive some track laps at Road Atlanta in the
'lightweight' 67 Penske camaro, now owned by Pat Ryan. The camaro now has 515 hp but has been put back to
67 specs by Ryan.

Gee, I wonder if Pat would let me do a few laps also?

Trans-Am Camaros / Vince Gimondo
« on: January 06, 2016, 03:13:24 AM »
Just learned that Vince passed Aug. 17, 2015, age 84.  Vince raced both Trans-Am and later IMSA GT, and won the
Paul Revere 250 at Daytona in 72.

Vince was a Korean army vet and operated his own welding and fabrication shop in FL.  I understand he built
his own cars.

Don't know if his camaro has survived.

RIP Vince
