The car that Tiny was driving in '69 was a reskinned earlier Bud Moore Cougar, from what I have heard.

I thought there was a dedicated thread for the NASCAR GT series here but I couldn't find it.  Anyway, here is a picture of Tiny Lund and his Cougar taken at Daytona International Speedway in 1969.  I found it on Ebay.  I know the 1967 Trans Am Bud Moore Cougars were used in this series in 1968 but is this 1969 car the re-bodied 1967 car or is it just another car?

Dan Kirchner is the guy who found all those pacer pics and he still has the originals and can provide a high quality print. That # is still correct and his email is dansautolit@aol.com.

There were at least 10 cars and I know of 5 (and another possible car). The 5th car is very original and a manual, unlike the others.
Ruben never said if his was an auto or manual.

Thanks Kurt.  I will pass this info on to Ruben.   Do you know if Dan has any more pictures that were not featured in the old article from Muscle Cars of the 60's/70's?

Besides the Charlotte, Daytona, North Wilkesboro and now Bristol pace cars, what track were the other Camaros you know of used at?  Do you have any pictures of them in their current state?  Maybe you could let the current owners of these cars know about the threads I have created (see above post).  They might want to see vintage pictures of their pace cars.

Thanks

Scott Koscik

The car pictured has a nice ride height, wonder how modified from stock these were? Any other reliable reference sources for further reading would be great!

I bought this silver grill at a swap meet a while ago and pretty sure the garnet red paint is the factory overspray.


For me, that looks the opposite! The silver is the over spray color....!

Victor, this Saturday through Sunday, Sept 20 - 21, is when the vintage races are scheduled. They are on the north end of Coronado Island and are held on part of the airplane runways right on the grounds of the navy base "Naval Air Station North Island". You drive over and extremely high bridge to get to Coronado Island from San Diego and then just follow the road up to the north end of the island. It's pretty straight forward but here are directions from the HMSA website. http://www.coronadospeedfest.com/new/directions.html
