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.

Yes, Allen and Arnie made a deal at Meadowdale after the Trans Am.  I saw Allen race it at IRP right after he bought it in the same paint scheme. Later he painted it in a multi-color scheme and ran it in Trans Ams.

Ralph Webb's Camaro getting ready to head to the track for the '68 Meadowdale Trans-Am.

This car was owned by Arnie Fick and sponsored by O A Fick Tool and Die Works in Chicago.  It is a 1967 Camaro that was a repo. Almost everything was stripped from it, including the grill, so a 1968 grill was installed.

Jon, I am having trouble with my scanner. Can you please post a couple more of the pictures I sent you of this car.  I know there is the rear shot in the driveway and an action shot from the 1968 Trans Am at Meadowdale with Ralph Webb driving.

Another good one... but get the other two first.



I seem to recall a lot of photo mistakes in this book, but I still refer to it a lot.
