Had one of those MD seats in the ex Alfie Ruys de Perez 69 camaro that Rick and I got from him.  Sure felt strange at first but got used ot it - lots of support.  Not sure how many vintage T/A cars
are using them now or if even legal but I do see some of those early basic buckets being used.

Congrats on your purchase. Nice to see an old warrior back on the track.  Any chance it will come to the west coast races this year?

That's what I thought, but what is the author of the story referring to in his last paragraph?

The CASC (Canadian Automobile Sport Club) at some point issued metal oval tags with a number usually mounted inside the engine compartment on the firewall.  It did include the CASC designation on the tag.

Don't remember brass tags being issued by CASC. 

How is the restoration coming along?  Did you get to Sebring in Dec?

I found some more photos when I had the car.

Mike, go back and look at "original T/A photos etc" last 2 pages - the cage looks the same, the fuel filler in the middle of the trunk and into the spoiler looks the same to me, also the 2 rear window clips.  Only thing is the fuel vent to the left of the filler in 72 - I think something SCCA may have madated to keep spillage down using a colletor bolltle.

I didn't see a photo of de Perez on autocourse at the 71 T/A and Alain with a new paint job in 74.

Rick Stevens and I always assumed the 69 camaro that we purchased from Alfie Ruys de Perez in the summer of 72 was the same car that Mo raced in 70.  It was sold to Leon Alain sometime in 74 and Leon told us it was destroyed in a garage fire along with some other race cars.

At some point the Mo Carter 69 camaro appeared in the vintage race world - restored?  (there is a strange story associated with this restoration).  Ok, so now we think maybe what we bought was the "2nd"
69 camaro built in the Carter shops? but I'm not sure.  Can't find anyone to verify anything. Maybe Ken Ball, who worked for Mo, or possibly Dave Covey, couild shed some light on this story.

David Tom (Historic Trans-Am Registry) raced one of the Chapparal camaros in vintage several years ago.  He would probably know the story about these cars.

The Carter camaro would be one of the ex Jim Hall 1970 T/A camaros which Mo purchased to run in the 71 and 72 seasons - was upgraded with big block engine etc for 73.  He ran  both IMSA and T/A.  My understanding is the car was wrecked in a
Mosport testing accident and parted out maybe in 76/77.  He then commissioned Brad Francis to build an IMSA  AAGT class tube frame camaro to race.

Can't remember if we had that set-up, but I don't think so.  Certainly remember seeing it back in the day.  How did they neasure any performance gains - not on an engine dyno but lap times?
