Hey, finding a bunch of old photos is the easy part.  Trying to track down car numbers, figuring out which event, which driver and tracing the history takes talent and lots of time. Try it some time.

Brutally honest, but right on.

Group 7,
I believe you are correct on both remaining Hall Camaros

That white and orange Camaro #56 is driven by Craig Carter, not Mo Carter. I think it may be owned currently by John Hildebrand and it is currently dark blue with yellow lettering.

The white #11 '69 Camaro at Daytona in 1970 looks to be the Larry Bock/Larry Drover car raced in Trans-Am that year.

The white with red sided Camaro following the red, white & blue Corvette appears to be the John Elliott car raced in Trans-Am
with sponsorship from Preston Hood Chevrolet in Fort Walton Beach, FL.

Thanks for the info Jon.  I noticed the "Craig Carter" on the door after I posted the pic but you beat me to the punch.

If it's the former Sid Rust Chaparral, then it's also the former Marshall Robbins Trans Am Camaro...  Same car...

I was thinking Mark Waco got one of Jim Hall's Chaparral Camaros. Am I wrong about that?

David Tom (Historic Trans-Am Registry) raced one of the Chapparal camaros in vintage several years ago.  He would probably know the story about these cars.

Cuda48,
Why so negative.  What the hell did I do to you.  I have the searching talent.  I am an archivist/historian.  I know how to research.  I do things like this all the time.  I was searching for info on another subject when I came across these images and thought that people might be interested in them here.  I don't have all the answers and I'm sure you don't either.  Bringing things up and asking questions of others is how information is shared.  If this is the way I'm going to be treated then I'll think twice the next time I come across something relevent, or maybe I should check with you first to see if its ok to post something.  I don't need to deal with this kind of treatment for just trying to participate in this forum.

thanks for those shots of camaros at daytona. didn't mean to sidetrack the thread into chaparral camaros, but there is a link to "mo" carter.  the chaparral team is my passion. post #11 of the yunick camaro is interesting in that in the top left corner you can just see jim hall. one doesn't see too many pictures of this car at daytona & sebring. I read somewhere that hall did do a couple of laps in the car.

SMK..  you can satisfy some of the people.. some of the time..  but it's impossible to satisfy everyone all the time.  Personally, I enjoy seeing the photos even if I don't know the driver/race/etc..  Smiley

Thanks Gary, that's the feeling I've gotten from 99% of the responders to my other posts/threads.  Even though I was pissed yesterday when I posted my response, I'm not going to let one bad apple spoil the bunch so to speak.  If the attitude that was expressed to me earlier in this thread was shared by everyone then not a single bit of new information would have ever been posted on this website.  One person would have to do all the research on a particular subject and no one else would be able to comment on that subject because they would not have the knowledge on that subject since they didn't do the work.  I find that to be such a stupid notion on a web site that prides itself on finding and sharing new information.  I'm glad to see that not everyone feels that way.

No problem Mike.  I love the Chaparral Camaro but I also love the other cars Hall built.  Several years ago Jim Hall and his cars were the featured guest/marque at the vintage races up at Road America, Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin.  A few of his sports racers and can am cars did a few flying laps around the track by themselves.  I think this was one of the first times in years that they had been taken out of his museum and driven.  It was retty cool!

As for the Yunick Camaro pictures, this is why I posted this stuff.  I don't remember ever seeing these pictures either and thought others would be interested.  I believe you are correct that he did do a few laps in the car to test before it was denied by the race officials.  I'll look for the thread that deals with this car and add these pics there.

I'll check out the Mo Carter thread for more info on that car.
