The Michigan race was run along with an SCCA national. It made for an excellent A Sedan field with several cars running the national and the T/A.

that's  in it's original 'skin' ..  as a '68..  Does anyone know when it was reskinned as a '69?   If someone wanted to 'restore' it to it's former glory as a Trans Am racer, would it necessarily have to go back to the '68 skin?

It was reskinned after the 1970 season. Jerry ran Trans Ams in 1971 and 1972 with the '69 body and Dupli-Color sponsorship.

that engine compartment looks a lot 'newer' than 1988 fresh....?   Looks like it would be a good car to take 'vintage racing'..  :) ..  for some fun!

This is a car that was immaculately prepared for every race throughout its history and was always keep in a clean environment.

Thanks for posting the photos, Mike. I see a Motorsports Research decal on the front fender behind the tire.
Were Jim Swan and his company involved with the build of the car or possibly the engine for it?

Jon, I'm not sure about the Motorsports Research involvement.

When the car was sponsored by Dupli-Color many components were painted different colors to advertise the Dupli-Color brand. The differential was purple if I remember correctly. The grill surround was tan. This picture is not from the Mike Jarchow collection.

A few more pics of the Lagod Camaro.

Just as info: The reason this car was reskinned was because of an accident at a National at Meadowdale. It was raining heavily and Jerry crashed on the front straight of the short course. He made an attempt at straightening the car, but the damage (mostly tree damage) was too severe.

Yes Robert, Ron Tribble does have Warren's Camaro.

Warren was not tuned in to CRG.

Warren Fairbanks passed away yesterday morning (10-18-12). I first saw Warren race at Meadowdale in his B Production, 289 Cobra in 1968 and was fortunate enough to see almost every race he ever ran after that into the 1980's. I will miss him.

I included a picture taken in 1971 of, from left to right, me (Mike Jarchow), Jerry Lagod and Warren.
