Sorry if any of this is a repost.  I don't remember seeing any of these pics before.  I live in the southwest suburbs of Chicago and whats left of this track is located in the northwest suburbs of Chicago, so I have a particular interest in it.  Does anyone have any more pics of this race?

Here is a picture of the cover of the program for the event.  I found this picture at: http://shop.driveabledreams.net/product.sc?productId=38

Here are a few more pics of Camaros found at the site mentioned in my previous post.

I also found some great photos of the Meadowdale Trans Am race at the Meadowdale International Raceway Preservation Association Facebook page.  Attached are some of the Camaro pics I found there but other pics of Firebirds, Mustangs, Javelins, Alphas, and Porsches can be seen on their photo page at: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Meadowdale-International-Raceway-Preservation-Association/400782870695?sk=taggednotes#!/pages/Meadowdale-International-Raceway-Preservation-Association/400782870695?sk=photos (when you get to the photos page, scroll down to the photos added in 2010).  These photos were posted to their site by Ronald Spannraft.

Not sure if anyone has seen the pictures of the 7th Trans Am race of the 1968 season held at Meadowdale International Raceway, Carpentersville, Illinois that appear on the Chicago Sports Car Clubs Memories of Meadowdale International Raceways web site.  Attached are some pics of the Penske Camaros I found at the site but you can see more pics of Javelins, the start of the race, and an advertising folder promoting the race at: http://miroldpix2.homestead.com/68transampage.html  The pics were taken and provided to the site by Mike Odell.

Robert,

My understanding is that the car sold for $48K but maybe somebody knows different. Below is a picture of the car from the late '70s when Cam Champion owned it. The second photo is from 1991 when an early style front end had been put back on the car.

If the 1st Hoffman car was painted blue with white stripes in 1991, then it must have been painted yellow by the next year because I took a picture of the car back in July 1992 during my annual trip to the Vintage Races at Road America.  You can see the Jeff Jacobs signature on the roof.

Here are a couple more interesting photos from the 1968 Trans Am race at Meadowdale.  The first one shows the row of 100 promotional Javelins that the previously posted article talks about.  The second one shows a stock AMX parked in front of the field on the grid.  Which one actually paced the race???  I found both of these photos on the Meadowdale International Raceway Preservation Association Facebook page.  They are dedicated to the memory of Meadowdale International Raceway: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Meadowdale-International-Raceway-Preservation-Association/400782870695?sk=taggednotes#!/pages/Meadowdale-International-Raceway-Preservation-Association/400782870695?sk=photos

Here is how the car looked back in July 1996 when I saw it during my annual visit to the Vintage races at Road America, Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin.

Here are a couple of interesting items.  This first is a photo of the 1968 AMC AMX that paced the Trans Am race on July 7, 1968 at Meadowdale International Raceway, Carpentersville, Illinois.  The second is an article about how AMC used the Pace Car and 100 replica Javeilns to promote their product.  I found both pics on the internet at: http://www.planethoustonamx.com/stuff/badger-javelin.htm  Interesting to note that the car is an AMX but it says JAVELIN in big letters on the side!

Here is a picture of the 1968 Shelby Mustang GT500KR convertible that was used as the pace car for the Bryar 200 Trans Am race held on August 4, 1968 at Bryar Motorsport Speedway in Loudon, New Hampshire.  I found the picture somewhere on the internet (possibly on this forum).  I'm no Shelby expert but I would think that a yellow GT500KR convertible has got to be pretty rare.  I wonder if this car survives?

Here is a picture of the same 1969 Camaro SS convertible that paced the 1969 Trans Am race at Laguna Seca.  You can see it parked on pit lane while Mark Donohue flashes by the checkered flag.  I found this picture on page 154 of "Trans-Am: The Pony Car Wars 1966-1972" by Dave Friedman.  The last pic is a closeup of this same picture.

Here is a picture of the 1969 Camaro SS convertible that paced the Trans Am race at Laguna Seca Raceway, Monterey, California on August 24, 1969.  I found this picture somewhere on the internet (possibly on this site).

Here is the picture that JoeC was asking about back in 2011.  It's the one and only 1968 Z28 convertible ever produced and it paced the first Can Am race of the season at Road America on September 1, 1968.

UPDATE: Looking back at the thread I started at camaropacecars.com about this car, I see that I corresponded with JoeC about this photo earlier this year.  The internet is a small world indeed.

I also found this picture on the Historic SCCA Pro Racing Trans-Am Series Fan Group Facebook site.  It shows a Porsche 911 Targa coming up the entrance to pit lane just before the Trans Am cars got the green flag at the July 16, 1972 Trans Am race at Road America, Wisconsin.  Steve Clifton posted it.

Hi guys.  This is my first post here although I've been soaking up the info from the Trans Am section as a guest for several years.  I am a Trans Am fanatic and a Camaro lover & owner.   I also love pace cars (all models) and have found several pics of Trans Am race pace cars on the internet and in books.  I found this picture of a 1969 Camaro SS convertible pacing the October 5, 1969 running of the Mission Bell 250 Trans Am race at Riverside International Raceway in California on the Historic SCCA Pro Racing Trans-Am Series Fan Group Facebook page.  It was posted by Steve Lyman.
