This is what happened to the 67 camaro that I drove for Al - was  raced at the pavement track Pinecrest Speedway near Toronto -
was wrecked and parted out in 75/76.

Note that Will Cagle, famous NE modified dirt racer, was recruited to drive the Jockos 68 camaro at the 72 Lime Rock T/A - car only lasted a few laps before overheating.

The Peter Schwartzott 69 camaro was sold to Warren Agor at the end of the 70 season I was told.

Sadly, Brock is fighting Alzheimer's.

I am going to look at a 67 and was given this vin over the ph.   123377L155047 by the current owner. He said it is an SS clone car with a v8 and 4 speed. 

Maybe was a 6 cyl car when new?  Any info will be appreciated.  Thanks.

Very sad news - just learned that Warren passed Oct. 29 - only 72.

Spoke to him after many years at the 2013 Glen Sept. SVRA vintage races that featured the HTA group.

Warren was a top competitor in T/A, IMSA, and Can-AM - see   racingsportscars.com

Thanks for the 72 Glen photos.  It was the last T/A race for old and getting tired 67 camaro warrior. We were dnf with "engine problems".  Not a good way to end our run.

Steve, you may not be aware. but most people in Quebec speak French - see Quebec history on Wiki.  Sometimes you would get both French and English side by side in publications.
I remember that when racing at St. Jovite, it was helpful to know a few words of French.

A vintage racer I know might be interested in joining the HTA group - any "barn finds" or other HTA cars for sale out there?

John, you are right.  It is the ex Nichter/Jowett car.  Pardon the Sometimers.

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.

Let's hear the HTA scoop !  any new cars?  I couldn't make it down - was busy at our own VRCBC Mission Raceway HMR.  Sadly, we do not have one
1st gen camaro racing now since Paul's 69 clone car went to a new owner "down under".

Just acquired the Nov/Dec issue of Vintage Motorsport that has a report on the race weekend, and on page 121 a nice photo of the Brock Yates "Sunday Driver" car, owned by
Warren Agor.  I did manage to speak to the crew of that car at the Glen, now owned by Jim Reed.  Back in the day, I raced against Brock in that car at Michigan and the Glen.

I was surprised to run into the original mechanic Rick Dilcher, who built the car for Warren.  Rick also was involved with Dimension Racing who built the 69 Camaro for
Peter Schwartzott and later the 510 that Peter raced. I knew them both from those days.

John Bishop passed June 5 at age 87.  John was a longtime executive director of SCCA and helped oversee the advent of SCCA pro racing - USRRC,Can-Am, and TRANS-AM.

In 69 he and his wife Peggy, along with Bill France, co-founded IMSA.  Rick Stevens and I were able to do 3 Camel GT races in 72 and John kept a Touring Over Category open
for the 305 ci racers for a few years.

John and Peggy were very racer friendly and even years later when I would show up at an event and see them at registration they would always have a cordial greeting for me.

At the 73 PoCono Camel Gt I broke our Camaro transmission in practise, and could not locate a replacement and had to load up and go home.

Imagine, when to our surprise, a full entry refund cheque arrived in the mail a few weeks later.

Rest in Peace.
