You have no idea how glad I am that you decided to paint it "original" green and not orange. Nothing against its later carnations, but that British green has got to be one of the best looking colors on any Camaro I've ever seen!

Fantastic results and thanks for sharing!

Are there comparable versions of any of the road racing headers such as the ones in this thread being produced today? Could you find similarly priced road race headers that might even be better? Amazing work!

John--I was under the impression it might be everything else but TA, so yeah I understand that HTA is a small part. Thank you

Robert--"cash for most of the events": What events are we talking about here? Sounds interesting and I definitely don't want to come unprepared!

I am pretty much sure I'm going now, and luckily enough I have one friend that lives in Santa Cruz and another that is moving I think to Gilroy in July, so I should be OK for that.

As for photo accreditation, yep, that's exactly what I wanted to know and exactly what I thought was the case. I don't have photo accreditation, I'm just a guy with a few cameras. Maybe I could call and pretend to be part of my local community college's newspaper/journalism crew.
hmmmmm...

So Mr. Raynal will be there ey? Boy do I have some questions for that guy!

Thanks you guys, big help. Now the decision is whether to go for one day or all three...

Thank you very much. To be straitforward, I didn't want to purchase the tickets and drive the distance to find out it doesn't have anything to do with HTA events.

I just have to ask someone who has been to these modern day events: how free are you to roam so you can take pictures of the race? Is it possible to get shots like the pictures in "vintage" threads, or is there some kind of strict access restriction for "normal" people?

It seems like back in the day, you could go just about wherever you wanted at whatever risk you were willing to take. I have a funny feeling the attitude is not quite as passive as that anymore.

If there is a thread about this already, this can be deleted.

I am obviously a new comer not just to the site but any type of SCCA Trans Am enthusiasm. So new that I don't really know where to go or when to see this stuff. I have seen many pictures of previous "Monterey historics" and would like to know if this is the same event.
 I'd like to go but not if this isn't the same event.

Here's the meat of my question: Will this even have the typical historic trans am cars(AMC/Chevy/Ford)?

Who's going?

Ahh, that makes much more sense. Thank you very much...I was just curious

The two frames in the first picture up top were not intended for an F-body Camaro, were they? All the underbody pictures I've seen show that even the raced F-bodies still had individual sub-frames that were not welded together using rail of some sort....which is actually surprising considering how many performance suppliers encourage the installation of "subframe-connectors" for 2nd gen Camaro/Firebird. Wonder why...?

Thank you for the clarification everyone(not to say it was only for me), this first-person knowledge is invaluable! Especially the info about Panhard vs. Watts linkage....very interesting, and also making me rethink a reason to fabricate a Watts linkage system.

This website I am citing is great for some really awesome photos(second to this site, of course!)

Here's another quick great shot of these wheels on what I consider a late model: http://www.racingsportscars.com/photo/1982/Portland-1982-06-13-080a.jpg

Thank you so much, that's definitely them. Surprised at how hard it is to find them see how many cars used them from vintage racing photos.

Thanks again!

Is there an advantage to reversing the mounting of the Watts linkage? The Firebird in another thread had the outer mounts mounted to the Axle tubes and the Center mounted to the chassis. http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=7815.msg59952#msg59952

Is there a reason for the reversed mounting methods?

I know I'm new and don't know much, and it is possible you fellas have no interest in wheels used in the late 70's or 80's, but I had a question and thought someone here ought to know.

I really find these wheels interesting but can't figure out what they are. From this page: http://www.racingsportscars.com/photo/1980/Trois-Rivieres-1980-08-24t-010.jpg



I was wondering who made them?
What are they?
What's their composition?
Would they be safe to use on the street and/or track now?

Thank you very much

AWESOME! Thank you guys so much!
This history is absolutely amazing, I love it! I wish we had this kind of factory-involvement today!

That is helpful enough as it is! Thank you so much! Smiley

http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=7815.msg66305#msg66305

A little more info than I previously saw! Thanks again.


Could anyone identify what kind of wheels those are, they look so mean! haha  Cool
30  Model Specific Discussions / Trans-Am Camaros / Pontiac Trans am info? on: July 21, 2012, 08:21:18 PM
I was wondering if anyone had any info on this specific pontiac-powered Trans Am car that I saw in my issue of HPP.


The caption in the article states:
Quote
The Pontiac Special Projects team members pooled their money to buy a 71 Firebird and turned it into this 303-powered road racer. It was the only Pontiac-engine car to ever win a Trans-Am series race.

I know this isn't a Chevy related question, but I have surfed this site for a few months and am astonished at the amount of detailed knowledge on this site.
I am curious of the history of this car if there is any to tell, and thought if anyone could tell me it, it'd be some of the members here.

Thank you.
