Great Story. Any updates on what happened with the auction at the '89 Daytona 500?

Thanks, Mike.  I don't recall seeing a follow-up article with details on the second auction and I don't personally
know what was left to sell. If somebody else has a follow-up article or more details, feel free to fill us in. I think
that Tom McIntyre and Mark Mountanos from the Historic Trans-Am group got most or all of the MkII Mystery Motor
components from the first auction. David Tom also bought numerous items from Smokey's auction, including the
first '70-1/2 Camaro off the line from the Norwood plant, a 6-cylinder car that was used on the Milford Proving
Ground for development work before being sent to Smokey.

Here's another shot of one of the Camaros that Smokey used at Bonneville to set various speed records.

I could be wrong but I think I remember a red pinstripe between the black and gold
