I was at the Mecum Auction in Indianapolis this week and watched this Turquoise RS Z28 Cross Ram sell for 100K. I took a lot of pictures and am posting a few.  It had the fender well signed by GM development engineer Jerry Thompson.  You can look it up at Mecums website.  If anyone wants other info let me know.  
thanks, Scoop

Did you get a picture of the trim tag? If so, can you email it to me?

Thanks

Interesting heater hose arrangement - both are connected to the input (suction) side of the pump, so there's no coolant flow; the top 5/8" hose should be connected to the outlet port on the intake that has a plug in it.  Roll Eyes

I believe I saw that car at the USCC Nationals in '95.  If it is it has Plexiglas "fins epoxied in inside corners of the intake because Raw fuel was loading up there.  But yes, a piece of Camaro history.

Is this something other than a 68 Z with a cross ram added? Am I missing something?

Nope. Nice car that x-ram has been added to.

That's J. Thomas' old car.  Real Z but he changed the trim tag for color purposes.........I have photos of that car from the Camaro Nationals during the early 1990's.  It's been done for many years.

Here's Sam Bishop, Johnny Thomas and Scott Brehm at the Camaro Nationals, Dearborne, MI, 1993.  There's the car in the background.

Looks like it - that's a T.I. coil, and the T.I. harness was the only one that was wrapped with cloth tape (vs. vinyl tape).

has some interesting history "fender well signed by GM development engineer Jerry Thompson"

Jerry T.  raced Corvettes and was good friends with Don Yenko. JT also ran a 1967 Camaro with Yenko SportsCars and won a national SCCA B/P title in 1967 in a Yenko Stinger.

The 302 Z engine sort of evolved from the 327 FI Corvette engine used in SCCA

Jerry T. used the base of the FI unit to make the prototype cross ram

He did a seminar on it at Carlise a few years ago with pictures of it
