ALso, do you think there will be any T/A related racing on Sunday at Sonoma? If I make it at all, I'd only be for sunday, or late on Saturday and Sunday.

Can you get up-close to the cars at Sonoma, or do you have to have some VIP type thing to talk to the teams and see cars?

How about the same question for Monterey?

I don't want to go through the trouble only to realize I have to keep 50ft of distance at all times.  hahaha

I'm voting for this not because I know what I'm talking about, but rather because he's in one of my most favorite T/A cars. In fact, I don't even know if it was Trans Am or some other class.

Milt Minter; driving the successor to the Gray Ghost Tempest seen up top and built by Herb Adams Racing Associates, it was the "last hurrah" for Pontiacs 303 RAV/Super Duty program, and he was part of it. This car famously/infamously holds the record for the best finish Pontiac ever achieved in a series it made such a timeless name from.

(I hope I got all of my facts strait)

As if I didn't feel inadequate enough to build a road racing Camaro before, now I really feel inadequate.  Undecided


Thank you very much Jon. Grin

Absolute favorite line of the article: "It was Mark the good guy vs. Parnelli the spoiler, the hired gun — tough, mean, glowering, a man who wouldn’t hesitate to put you off the road"

Fantastic article, Jon. Always high quality research with you.

I too was always perplexed by this as well, thank you very much Rob for asking the question.

I'm not saying this to be nice, but to be truthful: this forum and the content posted by its users especially including Jon has changed my view of the automotive performance world and the direction I wish to go in when pursuing my personal goals. It is an absolute blessing we would have such a large and outstanding compilation of history in one or a few places.

Many thanks not just to Jon, but to everyone in this community.

IS it me or was this picture taken before any fender/quarter flare work was done? Maybe it's a bad angle or an inexperience eye. Awesome picture of an awesome car. Thanks to all involved in getting this cars story out into public view!

There are a lot of numbers that appear to be pointing to certain objects, as if the numbers reference information presented elsewhere elsewhere, any possibility that you'd have that info as well?

Thanks you, this information is amazing!

Sorry for creating such a fuss and then going AWOL. Family and work commitments prevented me from going, I knew something would come up. I was also ill prepared and didn't get a chance to really hash the trip out step by step. I had a chance to make it happen but realized trying to pull it off 2 days before the event would only leave me high and dry--many miles away from home. Bad idea.


Thank you very much for the photos and coverage. Really appreciated! I really know what to expect at future HTA events now, though. Maybe I'll make Sonoma next year.

Thank you guys very very much for the information. Of the many things in my future, I had planned for at least two things: to keep 15" wheels, and to track my car for fun every so often.

I was rather surprised when I found out just how limited it is to find off-road 15" tires, much less trying to find a variety of them! I thought with all of the wild stuff they have available for vintage muscle cars nowadays, old school racing tires should be a piece of cake.......WRONG.

Them things are actually going out of style, literally. I wouldn't doubt if HTA alone might be the only thing keeping off-road 15" tires in production in the first place!

Are these "vintage goodyears" still available to average joes like me?
15  Model Specific Discussions / Trans-Am Camaros / Re: John Ware Trans-Am Camaro on: August 11, 2013, 01:08:55 PM
I have a question about the tires and wheel setup.

Is there any chance you could give me the wheel specs and also the tire specs that you'll be using on the track(type, model, whatever)?

Are the tires going to be the same as the ones in the pictures above?



I did some research and found that finding good track or even hi performance street tires for these old wheel sizes is almost impossible. I'm wondering if I ever use Minilites or Torq-Thrusts if I'' even be able to find a tire for them. So I want to know what the REAL GUYS use on the track in Historic TA. If it's good enough for them, it's good enough for me. They drive those cars as hard today as they did back then, it seems.


Thank you!
