ds1,
Red Field will still be around next spring. The Speedway has put Red and Orange Field projects on back burner.
I agree that more interest needs to be stirred up for Green and Red Fields in the spring. The Speedway does run a tram to the outside, but more needs to be done to draw buyers outside.
If and when you call to reserve spaces, tell the ladies in the office more needs to be done outside.

Trans-Am Camaros / Re: New Zealand/Australian Camaros And Firebirds

Not a Camaro, or even an international race car. But this 1970 Mustang was/is quite a legendary car in New Zealand. It was built using a 1970 Boss 429 Mustang, which Kiwi racer Paul Fahey bought in LA during a business trip for $500 in 1970. The car was only a few months old when it was stolen, and had the motor/gearbox removed, before later being recovered.

Fahey had some very good connections in the racing industry, and during his trip, was able to go through the recently closed Shelby racing team workshop at LAX, and bought all the remaining parts stock. He built the Mustang for road racing using some of the parts he'd bought of out Shelby's.

Bay Park 1970 was only the cars second or third event, and it completely dominated all three races.

Joe Chamberlain was a big hit with the Kiwi race fans.

Joe Chamberlain's Camaro, which picked up some damage. The NZ races were sprint events, held over only around 8 - 10 laps, so the racing was very intense.

One of our Roaring Season members just recently popped up with a few photos his father took at Bay Park, New Zealand, in late 1970. This was the annual Bay Park Christmas meeting, in which the event promoters always brought international sedan entries along to take on the locals. These events always drew a big crowd, and the 1970 event was no exception, with the facility full to capacity by 2pm on the Sunday, requiring the gates be shut.

International competitors at this event included the big block Camaros of Terry Allan and Bryan Thomson, as well as the American entry of Joe Chamberlain.

Here are a few pics featuring the Camaros.

Terry Allan is pictured here:

It will be in the December issue of Muscle Car Review magazine.

Wow, those photos are gorgeous Jon! Did they send you digital copies to keep?

Restoration / Re: Trunk stickers that don't lift?

Has anyone found a vendor who makes or sells reproduction jacking and/or positraction stickers that don't start to lift around the edges?
Mine are on only a few months and they are already lifting and this is after applying on one year old cured paint so it's certainly not solvents.

Thanks!
Mike

Whose did you try Mike?  Maybe I should pop the lid but it was ok when looked at ours last month!

It looks exactly like my original, correct part number, the S. I can't see any difference. I have not seen the repops though.

Here is a repop to compare with.

And another supposed original one to compare with.
