I thought spoilers weren't an option in '67

They weren't.

It's interesting that they talk in detail about the plenum air cleaner, but don't show a picture of it. I'd imagine people reading it at the time would have been confused.

Would it be safe to say that any first gen Camaro with the special paint code was special ordered for a customer?

Not necessarily. Some dealers were known to special order colors; like Carolina Blue for instance.

Nice color combo. Tach is likely correct, pad is suspicious.

Neat looking car, but I doubt it gets close to the estimate.

Quarter-panel challenged. I noticed it's not running the T/A shaker hood scoop. Was that not approved by the SCCA?

Mo,
                     Back in 1968 when I took my entire life savings and decide to go Trans-Am racing I knew that I would be in tough against the heavily fund factory teams  maybe I was a bit naive but I thought that at least I would we would be racing on a level playing field............ To me when the rule books say your car has to way 2800 lbs. not 2650 or less and your engine should be 5 liters  not 6 or 7 liters.........Nascar spends millions of dollars to ensure that  all teams adhere to the rules and you can bet your ass that if any of their competitors were caught with an over sized engine they would be gone for the season.
   When we were racing back in the day we were playing to packed houses everywhere we went........ Maybe someone should have earmarked a little more of the attendance money for tech inspectors.

Al,

I completely agree with you. I'm not advocating cheating, just saying that you have to be willing to do what others are doing if you want to level the playing field. As for NASCAR, did you hear the comment that Chad Knaus made to Jimmy Johnson on TV last year? This stuff still goes on at every level.

There's an old racers moto that says "if you cheatin, you aint tryin". Cheating or not, you have to look for the loopholes if you are going to be competitive. That is true today as it was then.
