old transam driver, thanks for you reply. there are differences between the two cars. I am no expert, but from looking in period pics.  one car has the fuel filler in the tailight panel, with a vent to the left of it.  the other has the fuel filler cut into the rear spoiler and trunk, is this the car you drove ? can't post a link ! but i'm sure you know the pictures on the autocourse.ca sight. trois rivieres sept./74 with  alain. with deperez at tremblant..71. the restored ? freitas car has the filler on the taillight panel. always  a lot of questions with these cars, considering the value they now have.

 sorry guys, didn't mean to muddy the waters ! after going back to roberts post on jan. 1 this year, the car went to leon alain, correct ? I was under the impression that the carter car and deperez car were one and the same. my mistake.

hi robert, what can you tell us about the ex carter 69 camaro that you raced. do you know it's history between the time you raced it and  before joe freitas got it ? deperez raced it as a  independent in 71. how did he become involved with carter in 72, when the car was sponsored by "mo". maybe jon can give us some input as well.

jon, thanks for that info on the chaparral camaros. I had seen that photo of waco doing some forest clearing at elkhart 1971, but didn't twig to it being the one of the hall cars.

   wow ! thanks for that shot of sid rust in the ex chaparral camaro. it's the best one i've seen so far, other than some distant shots of the field at the runoffs in 1974.

thanks for those shots of camaros at daytona. didn't mean to sidetrack the thread into chaparral camaros, but there is a link to "mo" carter.  the chaparral team is my passion. post #11 of the yunick camaro is interesting in that in the top left corner you can just see jim hall. one doesn't see too many pictures of this car at daytona & sebring. I read somewhere that hall did do a couple of laps in the car.

from what robert says, the ex chaparral mo carter camaro was parted out. is the car that runs now as a chaparral camaro in historic trans-am the former sid rust car ? am I correct in assuming that agor car now also vintage raced, is the third ex chaparral car,now orange and running #13 ?  any body give some input ?

smkz28, thanks for the pics of the 68 camaro pace car at mid-ohio. the link also has a lot of other neat shots from other trans-am & can-am races. bit mixed up, so one has to scroll through them.

re: yunick camaros. did smokey build two 1st generation camaros for racing ? or was the 67 updated to 68 spec's for daytona & sebring in 1968 ? I believe he also built A 70 & 1/2 bodied car which I think  only ran once once at the glen in 71 , but with A.J. foyt sponsorship on the flanks. I think this car went to europe ? does it still exist ? I have the smokey 3 vol. set as well, interesting read.

very cool pic of james garner with the sunoco camaro at sears point from the program for that event. this is mentioned in the donohue technical excellence at speed book on page 169. I wonder if garner actually drove the car ?
