I failed to mention that the previous ad appeared in Car and Driver and that it is talking about the 1969 Daytona 24 hours.

Now it's time for the Firebirds.  Here is a Champion Spark Plug ad from 1969 that shows the Daytona 24 hour class winning and third overall 1968 Firebird of Jerry Titus and Jon Ward.  The race started on February 1st and finished 24 hours later on February 2nd, so the ad could have appeared any time after that.

Here is a national Chevy ad for the 1971 Z28.  This car is also a Rally Sport.

Here is a 1970 ad for Valvoline featuring Jim Hall and his Chaparral Camaro.  It appeared in the October 31, 1970 edition of Competition Press & Autoweek.  I found the picture on the 1970 Trans Am season thread here at this website.  It was posted by Jon Mello.

Here is a 1970 Valvoline ad featuring the 1970 Chaparral Camaro.  It appeared in the program for the October 4, 1970 running of the Mission Bell 200 at Riverside International Raceway, Riverside California.  It's interesting to note that their are no front or rear spoilers on the car, so the picture must have been taken early in the year, perhaps in testing at Hall's personal test track in Texas.  I wonder if this ad appeared in all of the Trans Am programs throughout the year?  The ad also mentions Jim Hall as a driver but by the time this ad appeared in this program, he was no longer the driver of the car.  This picture appeared in a thread on this website.

Here is a national ad for the 1970 Z28 introduced in late February 1970. Notice that there is no hyphen or slash in Z28 for the 1970 model year.

Here is a 1969 Sunoco ad that laughingly points out that the Penske team won two Trans Am championships in a row.  Because of this, the ad must have run in the fall of 1969.  I found this picture in a thread on this website.

Here is another 1969 ad for Sears DieHard batteries.  It must have appeared in the summer of 1969 because it mentions that Mark Donohue was rookie of the year at the Indy 500 and it doesn't mention his 1969 Trans Am championship.  A larger picture can be seen in an ebay auction here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/1969-Vintage-Ad-Sears-Die-Hard-Batteries-Race-Car-Driver-Mark-Donahue-/121088071961?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item1c31695919#ht_414wt_729

Here is a 1969 ad for Sears DieHard batteries featuring the 1969 Penske Camaro of Mark Donohue.  Since the first paragraph states, "Chalk up another Trans-Am Championship for Roger Penske, as his Camaros cinched the title at Sonoma, Calif., and mopped up the series with a 1-2 finish at Riverside," this ad must have run in the fall of 1969.

A larger version of the ad can be seen in this ebay auction: http://www.ebay.com/itm/1969-ROGER-PENSKE-SUNOCO-CAMARO-TRANS-AM-WINNER-RARE-SEARS-DIEHARD-AD-/390565258079?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item5aef80e35f#ht_738wt_729

Here is a 1969 ad for Hank Thorp Inc., exclusive American Minilite agent, featuring a pit stop for the 1969 Penske Camaro driven by Mark Donohue.  Since it talks about winning the championship, this ad must have run in the fall of 1969.  I found this on this website.

Here is a Champion Spark Plug ad from 1969 featuring the 1969 Penske Camaro driven by Mark Donohue.  The caption under the Camaro states, "Mark Donohue leads Roger Penske's Champion equiped Traco Chevrolet Sunoco Camaros to SCCA Trans-American Sedan Championship."  This shows that the ad must have run in the fall of 1969.

Here is a two-page national Chevy ad for the 1969 Z/28.  This appeared in magazines in fall of 1968 introducing the 1969 Chevy lineup.  It is a larger version of the single page ad in the previous post.  The second picture shows the first page of this multi-page ad.  The Z28 ad is on the other side.

Here is another 1968 ad for Sunoco featuring Mark Donohue and his son Mike.  Notice that the two are in different poses from the color ad in the previous post.  It also must be from the fall of 1968 because it mentions his Trans Am and USRRC championships.
