While the pictures from my previous posts were from 1969, the next 4 pictures were taken at the Trans Am event held at Laguna Seca Raceway in Monterey, California on April 19, 1970.

2 more from Laguna Seca 1969

Notice the white 1967 Camaro RS along the fence directly above the #1 Mustang.

The second picture is interesting because it is a sign that used to say "The Hot Spot Mustang Corral" but a Camaro fan altered it to say "Go Camaro The Hot Spot Mustard Corral."

I found some more great Trans Am pictures on Flickr.  Someone named "Carrera RSR" posted 65 color photos of Trans Am events held at both Laguna Seca Raceway and Riverside International Raceway.  The pictures are mixed up but they include shots from 1969, 1970 and 1971.  I will post the photos of the Camaros here but click on the the following link to see larger versions as well as the rest of the fantastic pictures: https://www.flickr.com/photos/wheelock_steve/sets/72157644148754046/

I know I have never seen these before because they contained two great pictures of a Javelin AMX pace car at the 1971 Riverside events that I posted in the Trans Am Pace Car thread.

These first 4 pictures were taken at the Trans Am event held at Laguna Seca Raceway in Monterey, California on August 24, 1969.

I just found a couple of great color pictures that show the 1972 AMC Javelin AMX that was used to pace the Mission Belle 200 Trans Am race held at Riverside International Raceway, Riverside, California on October 3, 1971.  The pictures were posted to Flickr by "Carrera RSR."  I'm not sure if this person took these photos or not but I know I have never seen them before.

Other pictures of the car can be seen on page 5 of this thread in replies #64-66 and reply 19 on page 8.  In a few of these earlier posts I mistakenly identified the car as a 1971 model, but since the race took place in October of 1971, it is probably a 1972 model since new car model years usually start in the fall.

The first picture shows the Javelin AMX on the pace lap for the over 2 liter class event while the second picture shows it pacing the under 2 liter class race.

I found a collection of 23 color photos and 5 black and white photos of the Kent 300 Trans Am event held at Seattle International Raceway in Kent, Washington on September 7, 1969.  I found the pictures on Flickr and they were taken and posted by Phil Rhodes.  I will post them all here but to see larger versions of the pictures click here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/ockhams_razor7/sets/72157602224091136

I apologize if this is a re-post but I couldn't find them anywhere on this website if they have been posted before.

I came across a few cool pictures on Flickr that were posted by Chris Kennedy.  Click on the following links to see them since he has disabled the ability to download them:

These are the pictures I remember seeing after it happened.  The following write up can be found here: http://mokanmotorsports.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=7303

Photographer is going to be okay.

Star-Gazette racing writer recovering from accident

Star-Gazette reporter and photographer Ron Levanduski will undergo surgery Wednesday for injuries suffered during a vintage car race at Watkins Glen International.

Levanduski was photographing Sunday’s New York State Governor’s Cup event for Historic Trans-Am cars from the Boot of the Glen’s 3.37-mile long course when the No. 16 Chevrolet Camaro driven by Bill Bryant of Fruitland Park, Fla., slammed into the “toe area” of the Boot, where Levanduski was working.

“I was knocked out cold,” Levanduski said Monday.

Levanduski was sent by helicopter to Robert Packer Hospital in Sayre. He had three broken ribs, three broken bones in his upper left arm along with two puncture wounds in his arm from the breaks, a small “brain bleed,” and multiple cuts and abrasions.

On Monday he said, “I saw through the lens that the Camaro looked like it was making a pass in the corner. I saw a puff of smoke, maybe he was locking his brakes. But he didn’t slow down. He was coming full-bore at me.”

The force of the impact knocked Levanduski 10 feet into the air and into a creek, Phil Barnes, manager of security at WGI, said a witness told him.

Tom Ryder of Binghamton was also shooting the race for the Associated Press from the same spot as Levanduski.

“I was standing 30 feet to his right, right up against the guardrail,” Ryder said Monday, estimating the car was going about 120 mph when it slammed into the tire barrier in front of the guardrail. “Two laps before that I was right next to Ron. We spoke briefly and I told him I was going to move down a bit. Two laps later the car hit right where I would have been standing. The guardrail V’d when the tires kicked back into the guardrail.

“I heard a jolt and the car went through. I looked over and didn’t see Ron. I put my camera down and saw he was laying on his back near a small little bridge made of plywood over this little creek. It had to be 15 feet from the guardrail. I went over to him, and I could hear him moaning and groaning.”

Ryder added Bryan was able to get out of his car and was standing on the grass before he went down.

Outstanding and neat story Scott. Have all known 69 P-car Trim Tags been compared? I would think the body numbers would be sequential being ordered at the same time.

I'm not sure.  I have never seen any of them in person.  I have only read about them in the magazine articles, etc.  It would make sense that they would be built sequentially, since they were all Dover White RS/SS convertibles with the blue interior and most of them shared similar options and they were all going to one purchaser.
