I don't know many of the Javelin facts, but in 2005 I was visiting a friend in Arizona that owns Keefe Performance.  At that time he had Craig Jackson's unusual Javelin at his shop, preparing it for a test at Firebird.  He told me that car was originally one of the Kaplan cars that had become a Penske mule and was never raced by Penske.  Not sure at what point the body was partially changed, either by Penske or perhaps whoever began a restoration.

The 1980 calender picture in the ebay auction was taken at IRP.  Chip Boatwright (sp) was the driver when the picture was taken.

The John Mahler GT-350 was originally owned by Arnie Fick from Chicago.  John Mahler sold it to Bill Paul and it was the last GT-350  to run in SCCA National competition into the 1980's.

I would love to see more pics of the ex-Woods Camaro when Les Lindley owned it.

Notice the mufflers.  I seem to remember that was a rule at Waterford Hills.

The purple Corvette #45 is Roy Kumnick.

I don't know much about Yenko Stingers, but during that era the Bill O'Connor usually was the fastest D/Production car at Central Division events.  I don't remember the colors for sure, maybe blue and silver, or blue and white.

As an 8 year old at the Road America Trans Am in 1970, I spotted Jerry Titus sitting in a street Firebird with his wife near the team's pit.  I asked Jerry for his autograph on the cover of my program, which ended up with many autographs inside of it as the weekend progressed.

The next day Jerry crashed his Firebird at corner 12.  This is one of my most treasured pieces of history.

Robert,

Jerry still has the car. In fact, Max drove it for a couple of years in regionals and nationals in 1988 and 1989.

Bill Keefe from Keefe Performance in the Phoenix area has the car now.  He has Vern's Corvette too...and my Corvette.

My dad used to crew for Jerry Lagod in his 1968 Camaro, including during a trip to the run-offs at Daytona in 1969 when Bill Petree won. Lagod finished 3rd.

Scott,

You may already have pictures of it in the orange and white Greenwood paint scheme, but if not, there is an action shot in Corvette News magazine from Apr/May 1971.  In the picture, with I'm guessing Bill Petree (sp) driving, John Greenwood is trying to avoid another spinning Corvette with his A Production Corvette while the future Dunbar Camaro is closing in.

I have picked up several of these models over the past few years with great plans. I found that one of the easiest first improvements you can do on these models is to replace the exhaust pipes with K&S aluminum tubing.  Nice size, color and wall thickness.

Here's a photo of the Dick Hoffman Camaro with a set of Motor Wheel Spyders on it

Camicia

Mike, besides the Milt Minter Firebird, the Hoffman Camaro was the other one I had remembered using the Spyder wheels. Others may have used them but those are two cars I remember using them for sure.

I believe the early 70s orange with green numbers Camaro driven by Walter Parkins and later David Jungerman had this type of wheel too.

Jon,

Because the car was a repo (it was stolen and found later, stripped), the taillight chrome was missing also.  Lenses were used as seen in the pictures, which was common on Arnie Fick owned cars.  His GT350 had the lenses with no chrome too.  

Later when Allen Hewitt owned the car, taillight chrome was added.
