What is the knurled part on the spindle (with set screw?) just this side of the Inner wheel bearing?  A spacer?

Was up at Canepa's over the Holiday.  They are working on Craig Jackson's Javelin and building some fresh headers.  I got the scoop on the Gurney Cuda incident.  The front pads were replaced and it seems the manufacturer couldn't match them identically so the locating tabs were welded on.  Needless to say some broke off ejecting a pad from the caliper and this resulted into a hard turn into a wall.

Jon,
I had a little chat with the track manager and asked him why things looked so empty.  He stated a bunch of folks pulled out at the last minute.  I was wondering what happened to the Wine Tent and he stated it wasn't worth all the trouble.  I told him the wives were not going to come because of it...not sure he really grasped the impact of that fact.  I too noticed the lack of vendors. I hope they get this straightened out as next year can expect even less.  I know the track has applied for permits to have all kinds of other non-motorsports related events there (concerts etc...) in an effort to generate more $.  Doesn't sound good.

Ditto...talked with the usual suspects including Jon.  I know the Posey Challenger cracked a cylinder head.  One of the Mustangs had clutch issues.  They were missing a bunch of cars at this event.  Mr. Edelbrock was busy recovering from surgery so they were absent.  A bunch of the cars have been changing hands recently too.

I had the chance to spend some time underneath the 69' Donohue Camaro.  Very cool.  It worked very well this weekend too!  I have to say that while watching the Walter Parkin's Camaro run there is something wrong with the front end geometry.  I hope they check it out.  The Green Camaro of Karman Cusak was impressive.  Looked great and ran well too.

Fenders are coming along nicely.  I was talking to the Cobra Automotive folks about your car last week at Fontana! Looking forward to see it at Monterey.

In Gary Wheeler's defense the numbers are transposed.  He meant 450hp.  We had this very same conversation when I interviewed him years ago.

John,
It's my understanding this is not Ron Treadway's car but is the Hildebrand car.  Might double check with Chad on this.  The last time I saw Ron's car it was far from done.

Nice job Mike,
But I agree with Jon, the wheel spokes look right when they are black.

Group 7,
I believe you are correct on both remaining Hall Camaros

Hey, finding a bunch of old photos is the easy part.  Trying to track down car numbers, figuring out which event, which driver and tracing the history takes talent and lots of time. Try it some time.

This last link has a bunch of Trans Am stuff spread throughout the pages and in no particular order so you need to look closely.  Some 71' TA shots, Warren Tope, the Hoselton Hugger , Hall Camaro with the data transmission equip, etc.  Thanks for the link

Thanks John,
We're working on a 55' Ford truck that will look like the So-cal Speed shop push truck when done.  Even I'm excited about that one.  We are also fixing up a single axle trailer to pull our Model T Ford racer behind it! The kids really take an interest when we build something special so that's what we do.  I need to find time to update the website.  Are you still going to sell your Camaro?
