justin, I have two photos of posey, from the drivers side, in the #77 challenger at what I believe to be bryar, two races before what your looking for. what's interesting is the car has no side stripe, not easy to see in the image, but looks like there is repair to both front & rear wheel flares .can't seem to get my head around posting photos, or adding links. if you would like I can e-mail them to you.

SMKZ28, back in post #80 you had a link to the facebook trans am site. there are a lot of cool shots there, thanks for that. there have not been any updates on that link for a while, I guess we are locked out ?

mike thanks for posting the link to that site. I had discovered it a while back, and meant to bring it up on the forum. under the link to dick brown #3 of the posts, are a couple of good shot of the gagnon spring, ex sunoco '67 camaro. is this the lightweight ? the shot of brown in the car shows the interior to good advantage. I found I had to drag it to my desktop to see it in a larger size, unlike the others which you just click on.  three of the shots from tremblant '68 are taken by me, and were posted on this site by the kind mr. mello !

swede70, thanks for that info on ghost models. have not ordered from them before. they do have some things I'm interested in. I understand it's a one man operation, and he travels a lot. hadn't heard back from them about an order.
am looking forward to the stuff that spark has in the trans-am range, for future release. I do build plastic kits, and 1/43. on the 1/43's I couldn't lay down paint & decals the way spark & others do !

has any one on this forum had experience with ghost models out of the atlanta area ? they do offer a number of trans-am cars in 1/43 scale.

the ads from that era where really neat.like the ones for the "stormer" thanks for posting SMKZ28 !
 now is my mind playing tricks ? I remember the "sunoco" add with mark and his son which said, my dad can beat your dad. showing them in the camaro. question, was there a follow up ad that stated " my dad can beat your dad ! and has ! "

maybe it had something to do with the games they played with the cars in tech ?

hi, I have from the net, what looks to be a g.m. photo, b&w of a 69 camaro on the banking at the test track. the car has Z'dr stripes, SS on the grill, vinyl roof, early short rear spoiler. can't see clearly, but also looks to have Z/28 emblems on front fender. does any know this pic, my guess is it is a early pre-production prototype. unusual combo of options. any opinions ?

hi, new to this section of this great site. have been posting over on the trans-am thread. I live in ontario canada. don't know if this is the correct spot for this question ?  in 1970 a friend of mine had a 69 z/28, frost green, no spoilers & no stripes. I remember when I first saw it, I thought it had been hit and re-painted. the car came out of illinois. is there any documentation as to how many stripe & spoiler delete cars were built.
 
thanks, mike

jon, I have a question. back in post #55 you show the heishman '68 camaro at sebring in 1968. am I correct in understanding that this car had the drive train from your '67 ? does the '68 car still exist ?, and what drive train is in yours ? hope I'm not being to inquisitive ? I did read your tale about the '67 which was from I believe, the rich McCabe site. you are one lucky guy to have it, and a bonus find.  were there other cars that underwent the same conversion as the heishman '68 ?

  thanks mike

mike, have meant to comment on your efforts posted here before, great work ! metal is more difficult to work than plastic which is my medium. zamac is pretty fragile is it not ? I wondered if you were going to do the full length exhaust on the titus firebird. I guess that system gave better flow. I have only seen a couple of pictures that show it.
